Blue Point Brewing Co. - Toasted Lager

This amber lager from Long Island's Blue Point Brewing Co. won gold at the 2006 World Beer Cup.

5.3% ABV

Jewel clarity, brassy amber color. Significant carbonation. Bubbles are sporadic, but large. Pillowy white head. Light lacing.

Rich caramel malt. A sweet, dried fruit essence balanced with a light, but crisp toasted character.

Taste & Feel 
Medium body. Smooth, clean feel. Light toasted malts, Apples, white raisins and caramel. Slightly dry finish.

A very drinkable and versatile beer. Light, yet flavorful. I'd give it a "B+."
