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.

From Wisconsin’s first wind powered brewery. Pretty cool stuff. I picked up a 12 pack this past weekend when I was up in Hudson,Wisc. Pours into the glass a clean, clear golden colour with a finger sized white head. Aroma has some corn, slight graininess on the nose. Taste is pretty malt forward as one would expect. I pick up this tiny sweetness near the finish, which is fruity like then it quickly fades into a soft crisp bitterness. This beer is what it is. Glad I got a bunch of it!

Golden color out of the can with a fizzy white head. Nose of yeasty dough with some citrus. This is a sweet beer with thick honey, some corn, pepper spice, buscuit and lemon citrus in the finish. Tingely on the tongue. Not bad.

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

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!

Can (Brewed at Stevens Point) Gold pour with a medium white head. aroma is pretty standard lager stuff. malty light sweetness, minimal grainy presence and a hint of grassy hop. flavour is light and clean, with a malty sweetness through the middle and a touch of grassy hop bitterness that plays back and forth with a light residual sweetness in the finish.

12oz can courtesy of Buebie. Pours a clear straw with a big frothy white head that recedes to a thin cap and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts and corn syrup (not in a bad way). There are some toasted grains and hints of lemony hops as well. The taste starts out with a crisp lemon zest kick before the bready malts and sweet cereal grains take over. The finish is slightly dry with lemons and toast. Mouthfeel is clean, crisp and dry, extremely good for the style. Definitely one of the better pale lagers I’ve ever tasted. Flavorful for the style and very drinkable.

Pours nice golden color with light carb throughout. Enjoyable flavor for its style, little aroma, but a good clean finish. Not the best, but got it at a super good value (under 1$ per can) so cant complain. A local beer with good intentions, for the price, has a decent re-buy appeal

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.

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.
