Blue Point Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Pink dress on the pint glass. This was one of two sixpacks my sister bought for me for my visit to her place in NYC. Enjoyed before lunch on the first day (Friday).

A-Very clear, bright amber brew with occasional carbonation bubbles rising. Off-white head rose 2 full fingers off the pour, fluffy and thick, then slowly reducing to a consistent layer.

S-Subtle aromas of a hoppy spice, very minimal, with a bit of malt presence, bready in character.

T-Enter a slightly toasty maltiness, very crisp, and also a bready malt character. The "toasted" in the name is spot-on appropriate. Hop bitterness provides a pleasant balance.

M-Higher carbonation levelt, zesty and pairs well with the body, which is present but non-descript.

D-Pretty decent. It won an award a couple years back (as displayed on the six-pack holder), which I feel it deserved. I noticed this beer was available at most of the bars we visited while I was in NYC, so it seemed to be relatively popular. I definitely liked it.

A tasty Amber lager. Like a heavier Yuengling. Here goes:

A: Dark but clear brown-amber. Pours a very large head that leaves great lacing. Good.

S: Caramel, brown sugar, toasted malt. Good, but somewhat generic.

T: Follows the nose. Like a heavy Yuengling. Good.

F: Refreshing lager; light on the palate.

O: Good beer.

A: Clear gold with minimal white head.

S: Slightly sweet malts with a bit of hops and pear.

T/M: Toasted malts, with the flavor almost of toasted rice (like Japanese rice tea). Faint sweetness complements it nicely. Light body and effervescent carbonation round it out.

D: Very relaxing, no-pressure beer. Complemented the ham-and-apple-butter sandwich I was having with it nicely.

Lager with a copper/amber color and a pretty good head.

No complaints about mouthfeel, etc. Standard straightforward lager tastes and smells.

Toasted flavors make this stand out. Unique. Not exactly sure what "toasted" means. Not quite smokey, but similar to that. I may be noticing some chocolate malt as well.

Would be a very good session lager.

Never had much experience with this style, other than TONS of Yuengling during my college years in NE PA. Figured I'd give this a shot.

12 ounce bottle, best by June '08, poured into a 16 ounce shaker pint.

A - Perfectly clear with a nice reddish golden color. About two finger of head on top. Looks nice on the pour.

S - Faint and typical aroma of lager yeast. Some fruity smell.

T - Some fruity taste here but for the most part the brew is rather bland. Some husk/grain aftertaste.

M - Light bodied in the mouth.

D - Could be a good entry level type craft beer. Not really my style but I could see many considering this drinkable.
