COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy-drinkin’, golden all-malt lager. Brewed with six-row and specialty malts and hopped with Cluster and Perele to give it a smooth crisp flavor, with just a hint of malt sweetness. Select Golden Lager is brewed at both Steven Point Brewery and Dave’s BrewFarm locations.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium balancecd aroma. Light to medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

Can… Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. The aroma is of toffee and butterscotch malts; perfumy and peppery hops. Medium to full-bodied and oily with tickling carbonation. Decently balanced – bittersweet. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of mashmaster!

JorisPPattyn (7810) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2010
Yellow-golden, clear beer with a very even formed, medium, just yellowish tinted head. Faint sweet, sweet-spiced (coriander??) nose, pale malts and some honey. Much drier taste, bit metallic, but ending in a rather dull malty finish, contrasting with the hoppy(ier) onset of every sip. Quite slick, light to medium bodied; metallic thing hangs on in the aftertaste. Ubiquitous lager. Not the thing what I expect from Dave’s BrewFarm.

Canned. Poured crystal-clear medium golden with a tall, well-retained white head.. looked great in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted grainy notes and honey with crisp, fresh grassy hop accents.. balance was quite good. The flavor found honey and pale malts again at the core.. fresh, bright grass and lesser earthy bitterness around.. sticky-sweet toward the back.. almost crisp, but a little too tacky on the finish. Light-bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. balance was solid, and this was very drinkable.

Like a Point Special but replace the corn with malt. Brewfarm select is perhaps unnecessary, but it is pleasant.

Can from a trade with someone at some point in time. It’s been in my beer fridge for a long time so this probably won’t go well for me. Pours a somewhat clear gold with a large frothy white head. Sweet old grain right away, even while pouring from the can. A touch of paper and sweetness. On the thin side of medium bodied, grainy but overall just empty. There’s really nothing there at first. Drinkable I guess, but not anything I really want to drink. A touch of spicy bitterness into the finish. Dumped this and then had a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp beer instead.

deyholla (6505) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Can. Pours a clear deep gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of malts with notes of bread and wet grain with a hint of backing crisp hops. Flavor is mainly wet bread/grain with just a bit of hop presence. Nothing special.

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2012
Can. Wow - outstanding for a pale lager. Dave, you gotta educate the big boys on how this is done. Husky grain and cereal notes, plus a bit of honey sweetness.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this can. The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with some citrus and pineapple. The flavor is a mix of pears, oranges and apricots. The beer is very juicy tasting. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely the best pale lager I have ever tried.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malts, grainy, bready, with just a splash of honey; pretty much what I would expect from a pale lager. The flavor is sweet malty, grainy, mild grassy notes with a hint of bitterness at the back. This turned out to be not as bad as I originally expected.
