Blue Point Toasted Lager comes a bottle adorned with all kinds of awards from various beer festivals. It pours a nice clear amber with just a little bit of foam that promptly fizzles out to a bit of dappled white. The aroma is very malty, almost like a maibock with sweet caramelized grain and browned toast. This is mirrored in the taste with rich malts and a hint of herbal hop bitterness in the finish that melds well with the malt flavor of the lager. The beer finished smooth and clean with a bit of residual sweetness. I enjoyed this beer a lot.

Pint on tap at John Henry's in Long Beach, N.Y.
Appearance: It's an amber/copper color with heavy carbonation and a half-inch white head that recedes swiftly.
Aroma: Bready malts are up front, with some piny hops and caramel malts. Also, unsurprisingly, there's a note of buttery toast. Some grassiness, too.
Taste: Tasty. Really a perfect all-seasons lager. Smooth, crisp and refreshing, with enough complexity to keep you interested. Hop bitterness and alcohol are muted, while malts are very forward. Pretty much a perfect American lager. I had this alongside a terrific veggie burger, fries and a pickle and practically felt like singing God Bless America; tied the whole thing together in star-spangled glory.
Mouthfeel: The amount of body is spot-on. Some density, but far from heavy.
Overall: Excellent. A lager for folks who usually get bored by lagers. Also a lager for people who love lagers. There's everything to like about this, and no discernible flaws. Let's see what happens after the Anheuser-Busch acquisition.
Serving type: on-tap
