Point is just a regional brew..conditioned for the local tastes and cheap. Light tangy hop aroma--neither here nor there...Run-of-the-mill color and even thinner-than-normal fizzy head. Flavor is bright and bite actually provided by hops as opposed to carbonation, which is kept relatively light. This also allows light malt to sneak-in its two-cents-worth as well. Body is predictably thin but flavor balance is quite acceptable. This is quite refreshing and generally a cut above almost all the macro-brewed lagers.

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!
