Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Blue Point - Toasted Lager 

Blue Point Brewing Company
161 River Avenue 
Patchogue, NY USA
Est. 1998

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.3 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 4.0 (On Tap - Flight) 

Postmortem Brew Review
Copper color with orange tinges.
Caramel malt with bittering hop scent.
Two finger off-white head.  Lots of bubbles in the glass.
Tastes like the aroma; malty and bitter medium hops taste.
Fair amount of stringy lacing.
Medium bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
The third of the four* in the flight, and no surprise here.  A good drinking, easy to handle lager from Blue Point.  I had found them first with the Rastafa Rye about a month ago,  I didn't like this lager as much as the rye, but I did find it a great example of what makes a good drinking lager.  Guess I'm just partial to the rye. 

Stone Cold Fact: Blue Point Toasted Lager is a Great American Beer Festival medal winner for Amber ales.

Anyway, do yourself a favor and put down your regular-ass lager and pick up one of these, instead! 

* - In case you are playing the home game, number 4 in the flight was Stone's Arrogant Bastard.  I have reaped and reviewed earlier date.
