There's nothing speical about Point's Special Lager. The beer pours a clear pale light golden in color with a white head. Odd aroma. Stale, yet somewhat sweet grainy nose. Smells like a good "brat cooking beer" = cheap lager. Thin mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Inexpensive lager taste that doesn't stand out much. Weak malty front with flavors of spent grain and sweet corn. Dries out the tongue toward the back with some slight hop bitterness. Alcoholic vapors in the finish, especially as the beer warms.
The flagship beer is lackluster to say the least. I'd almost take the watered down Honey Light over this one. This is not the best Point has to offer.

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!
