Blue Point Brewing Company

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

To back up that claim, we use six different grains to perfect a balanced flavor of malt and hops, and a special proprietary lager yeast to give Toasted Lager an exceptional, long-lasting smooth finish that’s meant to be enjoyed year-round. Pairs perfectly with fresh seafood...or any food for that matter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pale orange with thin white fizzy head and great clarity

Aroma: toasty, slight biscuit notes with clean yeast character that lets toasty malt shine

Taste: well balanced, great toast and a malt character somewhere between bready and biscuity. No real hop character but great stabilizing bitterness.

Mouthfeel: lager-y smooth and crisp mouthfeel, medium body with medium carbonation

Overall: A great beer overall. Vienna lagers make for great flagship beers and this one is no exception. Flavorful and balanced, this is a perfect beer for non-craft drinkers to enter the craft beer world.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Weyerbacher pint glass.

A: Pours a nice clear copper, with a finger and a half of off-white head and lots of visible carbonation. Very attractive beer.

S: Toasted malts, roasted caramel, lager yeastiness, and faint pilsner malts.

T: Follows the nose well. Clean lightly toasted bready malts, lager yeastiness with mild fruity esters, a touch of caramel sweetness, and a bit of grassy and floral hops near the swallow. Very clean finish, with light hop and toasted malt bitterness.

M: Light body, lots of carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is presence is well-hidden.

O: I found this to be quite enjoyable. The darker malts than typical for most canned American lagers made for a deeper flavor profile without being overly sweet. A nice complimentary hoppiness while still staying malt-forward. A quality canned lager. Maybe it's not quite enough to become a staple in my fridge, but I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another six-pack when I'm in the mood.
