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

Overall, I liked it, but thought the scent didn't quite match the taste. i.e. it didn't have a good aroma but actually tasted quite good.

L = Somewhere between an amber/red color and a lighther golden color, but still very nice and clear. Head was very thin but that could be because it was a slightly older bottle
S = Didn't smell like much. Maybe a bit sweet.
T = More bitter than the scent suggested. I do like IPA's so i don't mind bitterness though.
F = Much like the look it feels crisp, bubbly and light in the mouth, much like the look.
O = Overall still a very nice drinkable beer, that probably does best if it's more fresh.

enjoyed this one at MetLife stadium...served from the tap

Overall, it is a nice tasting beer and flavors & aromas not too strong...it is not one of my favorites, but a good drinking beer that I probably have again

Pours an orange color, light foam on the pour, fair aroma and tastes okay, was a little disappointed. Not a bad beer, but my expectations were a little higher on the flavor.

I first had this at Nationals Park, really hit the spot. Enjoyed it again with some BBQ. Great grain, malt balance, with a touch of citrus hops on the finish. A solid go to lager.

Very good! I enjoyed this lager. Pours very bubbly and settled with a healthy off white head. Clear dark golden-copper color. Subtle, but clean & refreshing aroma. Smooth taste overall for a lager, mostly sweet then slightly bitter hop finish. Good job Blue Point.
