2.78/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - A nice dark amber color with a thick soapy off-white with some decent lacing

S - Mostly malt with a wet rag smell with a touch of hops but not much else going on

T - About the same as the smell. Mostly bready malt, not much in the way of hops, corny with a touch of bitterness in the finish

M - Feels decent in the mouth. Medium-light body, dry and pretty refreshing

D - Overall kinda disappointing. Wanted to give Point a try and was hoping for a solid amber but for the style it is lacking. Kinda tasteless but certainly easy to drink. I must say that it is a great looking beer! I'll give em' another try. I hear the RIS is good

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours to a thin off-white head that falls to a thin layer that laces minimally and a dark amber color. Aroma is a toasty malt, brown sugar and slightly fruity notes and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is weak and dusty (this beer may be old?) with toasted, caramel malt and a weak, waxy hop balance. It's not bad but it is rather unremarkable. Mouthfeel is crisp and fizzy, much like BMC. Overall a so-so beer. Bear in mind I could not find a freshness date on this beer and it was stored at room temperature for lord only knows how long. In an Oklahoma package store. Change the damn law already!

A 355ml bottle with a BB of May 2014, so it's a little out of date. Acquired a while back from a supermarket. This UK version is called Point Amber Lager on the label but I presume it's the same beer.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A rich coppery-amber hue with faint haze and good carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with hints of mild pine, spice, fruity ale yeast, barley sugar and stewed hops. Faintly sweet.

Tastes of caramel malt with a spicy hop character and a crisp, bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, subtle weed, spicy hops, caramel, fruity ale yeast, a hint of sugar and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a restrained bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of pine resin, bitter hops and sweet caramel.

Not too shabby; in fact it goes down quite nicely. Looks the part, while the aroma and flavour have a caramel malt backbone paired with some satisfying pine notes. Good body. A pretty solid amber lager with more flavour than most. Worth sampling if you come across it.

Classic Amber is just ok. Nothing Special, because overall, Stevens Point Brewery puts out a consistently good product. This is not one of them. Since this was part of a craft variety pack, the rest of the lot made the purchase well worth the while.. But then.. maybe it's just me.. being on an IPA tear and all...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a large, soapy, off-white head that has impressive persistence. Bread dominates the nose. Radiantly clear burnt umber color. Starts with a toasted malt sweetness; almost caramel. A flash of floral hops before a huge wave of biscuit comes through and lingers all the way into the finish.
It has a crisp, smooth mouthfeel that is almost stereotypically lager.

This is some smooth drinking if you want something malty. At $6/6-pack, it's hard to beat.
