Point Classic Amber

Point Classic Amber Wine Details

Description: Point Classic Amber is a handcrafted amber-style lager. Roasted caramel malt gives the beer its subtle caramel character and reddish-amber hue. Combining four distinctive hops with a longer brewing and aging process creates a remarkably smooth, distinctive flavor.

Varietal Definition
Amber Ale:
This is a more modern, non-traditional style, and many of these beers borrow heavily from the characteristics associated with more classical styles such as "Pale Ales" or "Bitters." Amber ales are light to medium bodied and can be anywhere from light copper to light brown in hue. Flavorwise they can vary from generic and quaffable to serious craft brewed styles with extravagant hoppy aromas and full malt character. Typically amber ales are quite malty but not heavily caramelized in flavor. For our purposes amber ales will also include ales commonly identified as "Red Ales," and "American Ales" as, from the consumers viewpoint, the dividing line between these styles can often be a more a marketing concern than a consistently observed brewing convention.
