Quite malty in aroma and in flavor. Nutty, perhaps a bit sweet, with a smooth body and lingering finish.

Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed after a long run on the hottest day of the summer so far, figured this would be good weather for a nice lager. Appearance a golden lager with little yeasties and visible carbonation that bubbles to the top, also a white ring around the glass. Aroma mostly malty, not really watered down but they donít jump out at you, maybe the most prevalent of malts Iíve seen in a lager. Taste is surprisingly unique. Itís very malty for a lager, but there is almost like a dark fruit finish. This stuff is pretty good, I would definitely pick this over any mass produced lager any day.

My last can, damn Iím going to miss this stuff. Normally Iíd be drinking it straight from the can but today I pour. Color is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma of faint hops, honey, slight fruits, and malt. Taste is clean, grains, honey, nice hop presence, and sweet bready malts. Clean and refreshing.

Thanks to Solan and Mcbackus. Solid pale lager with crisp flavors and nothing skunky or offensive about it. Light, easy drinking and still full flavored. Solid, for what its worth.

(can shared by MatSciGuy) Pours a clear light gold with a thin white head. Aroma has some light pear, is floral, and possesses some must as well. Flavor is fruity (which ones I canít identify) faintly grassy, light caramel and a mineral component as well. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. A simple beer that would be great to drink in the summer.

12 oz. can, brewed in Stevens Point. Clean, hoppy, floral, dry, fresh, grainy, appetizing aroma features green apple and celery scents. The smell dissipates as one drinks. Pours a pale gold to straw color. The liquid is completely clear. Small to moderate amount of small, slow-rising bubbles. Large amount of thick, fluffy, long-lasting, nearly white head that appears more like the head of a Belgian pale ale than that of a typical pale lager. Nice, surprisingly extensive lacing. The taste features sweet, fruity (especially peach) malts as well as a dry bite in the back of the throat from the Cluster and Perle hops (according to the can). Pleasant taste but low in flavor by the standards of craft brewing, though quite flavorful for the style. Just a touch of metal in the finish, but it is only a minor detraction. Alcohol taste slightly noticeable, surprisingly. Light body, but not extremely light. Easy drinking and refreshing, as the can states. Not as crisp as one might expect for a lager. Daveís BrewFarm Select Golden Lager is more like a good German Helles than a typical pale lager, but if one does consider it a pale lager, itís pretty much as good as the style can get. Iím impressed. Iím a tough rater, so a 3.3 for this style is pretty darn good.

[Can] Pours a clear honey gold with a small white head. Aroma is grainy and floral with a light malt sweetness. Flavor is smooth and creamy, light lager yeast, light floral and noble hop, and a light bitterness on the finish.

Can into Boulevard tulip. Looks like a pale lager, generous head. Smells really yeasty, not hollow like most pale lagers. Taste is clean, drinkable, pretty good for the style, even a hint of hops. Palate is a bit flat if Iím honest, but overall, very good pale lager.

This was a really nice beer. Grainy, grassy with a spicyness that reminded me of Dales Pale Ale, just lighter but not thin. Very Pleasant.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Pours a clear honey yellow with white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is earthy with notes of high and undertones of a caramel sweetness. Flavor is malty with sweet caramel notes. Some bready flavors as well. Body is light with quite a bit of carbonation. A little creamy on the tongue
