Blue Point Toasted Lager, 5.5% ABV, 28 IBU. Pours pale orange, thin, with almost no head. Nose is malty, taste is malt, a bit bready, with no bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent. This would be excellent to take to a party.

Look - Pours a crystal clear dark honey/copper color, two fingers of off white head, no lacing.
Aroma - Very mild. Honey, spicey hops, grains.
Taste - Like the aroma only more pronounced. Delicious sweet malt up front, white bread, a bit doughy, light toast, hops are mild and come around halfway through with an earthy bitterness. The finish and aftertaste are surprisingly long with notes of bread crust and fruity yeast.
Feel - Light to medium body, creamy carbonation, dry.

Overall - An excellent lager. Reminiscent of a marzen and much more flavorful than I was expecting. I'd buy this again.

On tap at the Newark airport. Amber, smells of crackers and citrus, taste follows with a hop bite. Refreshing and good, a fine beer, nice to end this vacation.

Pours a golden Amber with a white head.

Fresh baked bread, roasted malt, caramel, and herbal hop in the nose.

Tastes of toasted bready malt with notes of caramel, nuts, and slight hit of almond. Finishes dry with bitter herb hop. This is a solid malty lager.

Purchased as I'm into lagers currently, I've seen this product placement on Blue Bloods numerous times (and it therefore peaked my interest) and it reminds me of one of my favorite Am. lager's the "Blue Bullet" can of Point Special beer. All make it worth giving it a try.
It is a little darker colored with a full off white head. Very clear. The "toasted" is light in taste but the taste is bigger than merely pale malt or pils. Malt move towards caramel without quite getting there. Toastiness comes from the grainy flavor. Hops are light and neutral and offer a smooth bitterness. Feels is a little heavier with some fullness but well within range of appropriate.
This met my expectations. Too expensive at $10.99/6-pack, but no regrets giving it a go.

Rated for the style. I saw this at a local liquor store marked down to $3.99 a 6 pack. The beer still had about 2 months left on its besy by date so i figured why not? Poured into a lager glass. Decent copper/amber color. One finger head that stays around fairly well and a good amount of lacing. Taste is light, crisp and refreshing. Toasted malt with some hops.Would be good on a hot day if you are looking for something a little better than BMC. Not a bad beer but i am also not a huge fan of amber lagers. Will drink again for $3.99 a 6 pack or if offered by a friend. I would not pay full price for it though.
