3.25/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can poured into a pilsner glass.
4.5% ABV,

A - Brilliant clarity shows off the bright pale yellow straw color of this lager. Briefly impressive, the tall head drops rather quickly only to. Ale minimal spoty lacing on the glass.

S - Sweet corn husk and cereal grains trailed by pale malt give Point Special a classic American lager aroma, capped off by a hint of European hops.

T - Starting sweet, this lager reflects the aroma with an upfront adjunct flavor of corn and graininess only to finish out with next to no hop flavor.

M - Smooth and refreshing, Point Special is a very light bodied lager that lingers with sweetness unbalanced by hops though not cloying.

O - Point special is your grandpa's lager, the pre-pro, corn-brewed, golden beer. It's not a craft-brewed pilsner but it's not brewed to be, it's meant to be a classic American lager: simple, affordable, refreshing.

2.99/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Pours a golden yellow color with a very fizzy 1 inch head that reduced quickly, wow just a ton of carbonation. Smell is a little dull some grain and faint hop. Taste is ok, sweet fruit notes with a little bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and light.

Overall, it's an ok beer nothing that will knock your socks off, but also very drinkable. My suggestion for serving this beer...is that it tastes way better served very cold. Great beer for frozen mugs.

One more note, I always keep a few cans of this beer around for cooking brats, it makes one of the best brat hot tubs. Cheers!

1.68/5  rDev -45.6%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Pours pale yellow with a white foamy head with about average retention and lacing.Thje aroma has corn and grain, with a small amount of hops.

Taste wise there is nothing to get excited about. Corn, some grain, and a light amount of hops. Has a somewhat sweet flavor, and a little bitterness at the end.

Light bodied with too much carbonation. Not worth trying again.
