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A 355ml bottle with a BB of May 2014, so it's a little out of date.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.
