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.

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.

Can. Pour is clear yellow with white head. Aroma of grassy notes, corn, bready malt and citrus. Flavor of the same, dry and crisp but pushing thin. Not complex, but an easily drinkable.

Poured from the can to a Leffe chalice, how fitting. Pours a nice looking honey gold with a thin white cap that falls off quickly. Smells of lightly toasted grains, sweet bread, just enough hops to provide balance. All these notes carry through to the taste - refreshing, drinkable, spot on.

Brew Farm, party time, excellent. Can. Pours a......I have no idea. Who the hell pours a canned lager into a glass? Flavor is slightly sweet malts and mild American hops. Medium bodied. This tastes like what I imagine to be the pale lagers of our grandfathers days, before they became watery and full of corn and fusels. Easy drinking but too sweet for extended sessions. Not bad.

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.

Can. Pours a gorgeous clear glowing copper with a thick frothy white sudsy sticky head. Aroma is sweet, candy-corn like, lightly buttery. Flavor follows, rich candy corn, bit fruity, touch of warming alcohol, sweet with a funky grassy finish, rich candy corn kick.

A nice pale lager. Definitely better than the other crap that’s out there in this category. Aroma was a little thin. Light pilsner malt with not much else going on. Pour was a nice medium gold with a huge 3 finger white head. Taste was sweet but crisp. Light malt with a little DMS and an off corn flavor (which I know the beer is all malt so that makes it weirder). Nice and crisp with heavy carbonation and no aftertaste. Would be great in the summer on the deck.

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 I’m honest, but overall, very good pale lager.

12oz can from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma has some thin pear and melon fruits with a grainy, lightly sweetened, corny malt backing. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, grainy, corny malts with a bit of a melon fruit and a touch of grass. Finishes mostly dry with a light, corny sweetness and a very light, grainy and grassy bitterness. Short aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not the worst pale lager, but certainly pretty boring. Corny, grainy, lightly sweetened, and somewhat fruity. Eh...

Pours a lightly hazy golden with orange notes and a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of grassy notes, corn, bready malt and citrus. Flavor of the same, dry and crisp but pushing thin. Too much like a macro lager for me. Nothing to help set it apart.
