Very impressed by how dark the body was with a burnt amber color and a fairly thick, frothy head. The aroma is closer to a pale ale with a noticeable caramel scent, although it was definitely mild. Much like the aroma, the taste of the Blue Point Toasted Lager is similar to one you'd find in a quality pale ale. It's crisp and hoppy with a slight bitterness up front. The middle is almost all caramel - not anything too rich, but not overly sweet or candy-like. The finish, however, has a strange tang (but it's barely noticeable). This beer reminds me of Samuel Adams Boston Lager, but is not quite as robust. Despite the name and the brewer's description, I really don't get much of a "toasted" taste. There does seem to be a slight creaminess to the texture which helps combine the malts and hops into an overall satisfying flavor. The problem with flavorful lagers is they tend to sacrifice drinkability, but that's not the case here. While initially very bubbly upon being poured, Toasted Lager calms down to the point of being a little less than crisp but a little more than tepid. The mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and gentle, creating for an easy-drinking beer that goes down smooth. The astringent aftertaste lingers for a moment or two, but it's easily ignorable.

Not too much to say about this one. It is smooth and has nice notes of barley and slight hints of spice. Don't get me wrong, its not at all a 'bad' beer. It has nice balance and tastes good. I just wasn't blown away by it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys Yuengling.
