Our flagship and most popular brew, Toasted Lager is the best American Amber Lager you’ll ever taste.

Deep amber color with a foamy creamy head, mild aroma, pleasant mild taste. A good beer - not great but not bad.

I bought a six-pack of this beer, on a whim. I've no reservations about enjoying the remaining 5, but this won't become my go to beer.

Picked up a 6 pack for $9.49 at a Kroger.
Appearance: Bright copper color, with exceptional clarity. Pours a slightly off white Inviting frothy head, that has decent retention.

Aroma: Sweetness and light toasted grains, has some faint, distant hops. Nothing too prominent.

Taste: Get caramel representing the sweetness aroma, balanced with toasted malts.

It was good not worthy the $10.00 a 6 pack.

This is a really nice tasting American type amber. Being a lager...and being toasted... it is a sweet, malty brew. I love this flavor! I would buy it again for sure. But, if you only want the big hop charge...you won't find it here.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden amber pour with 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Falls quickly with spotty lacing.

S: Sweet malts and cracked grains... biscuity.

T/F: Light sweet malts and grains... follows the nose. A little butter and caramel. Bittering from the hops comes midway through. The finish is clean and earthy.

O: For the style a well done beer. Maybe an ooch too sweet, but very drinkable and refreshing. There's nothing exciting/overwhelming here but nothing wrong either.

It pours a clear Cooper color with a foamy white head. The smell is straightforward malts and the taste is malt on the front and a little bitterness on the end. The body is medium with carbonation. Overall a good drink but more of a amber ale to a larger.

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: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
