look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

poured from 12 oz. bottle
light copper tinged amber hue. moderate fading head that didn't last long and spotty lacing. musty, raw, but not overly forward grainy nose. coppery taste with a sweetish tail. nothing too complex to this one, not bad either. mild toasted quality lurks in the background without asserting itself enough to qualify the name. mouthfeel was the weakest aspect, kind of watery with prickly carbonation before the finish. not enough going on in this brew to hold my attention, but not terrible. i wouldn't turn one down but i wouldn't ask for one either.

12oz bottle to a pint glass

Picked this up on recommendation from the guy at the distributer. Looking for something mild when I was going to our NCAA final 4 party

A - Good appearance, copper color with nice foamy one finger head and decent lacing on the glass

S - Not getting much at all from the smell, a bit of the toasted/biscuit aroma comes through

T - Toasted flavor comes through with some malt sweetness in the back. A little bitterness comes through after a few sips

M - Good carbonation, not heavy at all

D - This is a good drinking beer, and probably a good microbrew for the beginners. I dont find much special with this at all, but a good solid beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Transparent dark gold to amber color. Small head when poured which receded almost immediately. Strong carbonation visible.

Aroma: Slightly hoppy aroma with malty backbone. Not any real "toasted" notes apparent.

Taste: Rich flavor of malts balanced with mild hops. The toastiness makes a slight appearance in the middle. Finishes crips & fairly refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Thin to medium bodied. Smooth & crisp. Body was a bit thin for what I was expecting from the initial appearance.

Drinkability: Very easy drinking. This goes down smoothly. Refreshing...

Comments: I enjoyed this lager from Blue Point, but did not find it overly exciting, More full flavored than your standard lager, but nothing out of the ordinary. Would have liked it to be more toasty per the name...

I've had this beer a few times during the Summer, seems to be becoming more popular locally. Overall a decent brew. Not overly complex. Malt and sweet biscuit flavors dominate. Medium body with low carbonation. Almost reminds me of an English mild ale. I wouldn't turn one down, but not sure I'd seek out. I much prefer Sam Adams or Brooklyn Lager over this brew.

Clear lots of carbonation bubbles. Thin white head that comes and goes pretty quickly. A light amber color guess you could say that it looks like a lager with a slight toasting to it. Not getting a lot on the nose kinda get a sweet almost caramel smell but you have to be looking for it. Taste is well there is a slight bitterness sweetness on the back of the tongue. Not a ton of flavor or much going on. A hot day beer for sure when you want to cool off and be able to put back a 6 pack. Lots of carbonation on the tongue I poured this first one but probably will drink the rest right out of the can. overall good but for 8 or 9 dollars a 6'er probably not going to grab this again.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Clear red body with minimal head that quickly recedes to lacing.

S - Sweet; caramel underscored by name-appropriate (very) lightly "toasted" aroma

M - More full than expected, judging by the clarity of the beer I was expecting something a bit lighter but the body weighs down on the tongue with a creamy finish.

T - Again, the beer delivers its "toasted" quality; similar to a smoked beer but less pronounced and considerably sharper, more bitter.

D - Overall a pretty solid beer, but without enough of a presence to really hold up to that second or third bottle. File this under mix-pack.

Poured from a brown, 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This beer has a nice, copper color, but poured with relatively no head and only mild lacing. There is not much aroma to comment on; slightly malty and grassy, but nothing distinct. I had anticipated a richer or mildly smoky aroma. Similarly, I anticipated that in its taste as well, however, instead it tasted like a basic lager with a faint roasted malt and mild sweetness. It is a decent lager, but not as interesting as I had hoped. On the upside, it is a nice tasting beer and easy to drink. It was a welcome refreshment on a hot Saturday.

poured into a Heffe glass. clear nutty amber orange color with a good foaming head about 2 in... pretty impressive.

smell is malty and light trace of floral hops... nothing great.

taste is watery malt with no real pronounced hop flavor... you can tell they are there but it is just bitterness not citrus, not floral, not piney, just plain bitter... weak

full bodied and well carbonated... really good mouth feel

overall i had to try this beer because of all the hype... i prob will never buy it again... it isn't that bad just not good.... definitely not GOLD MEDAL standards if you ask me... but now i know.
