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...

A nice pale lager. Definitely better than the other crap thatís 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. 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.

BrewFarm Select Golden Lager, All-Malt, 12 oz. can Disembarks the can and boards the glass with hefty head holding firm on top, lacey and white, clear and golden-hued below. Light, malty nose, cereal husk, with a little honey-ish sweetness. Lean and clean. Taste: malt and water. Very clean, light, and just enough flavor from the malt, with a tidy little blast of hops, to keep it interesting. Incredibly easy to drink, with appreciable flavor. Quality lager, all the way. Iím not typically a lager guy, but this is top-notch. Almost perfect.

Poured with a nice foamy, frothy off white head that lasts a little while and a little lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is fresh beer, malt, a little hop, fresh baked white bread, cereal, and a little fresh mown grass. Flavor is like aroma and a little on the sweet side. Decent body and carbonation. Short finish like flavor. Inoffensive and mostly forgettable. Prefer the crisper pale lagers, míself.

From Wisconsinís 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!

Can. Clear yellow pour, quickly dissipating carbonation and a light caramel and malt aroma. Flavor starts is mostly sweet malts and slightly fruity and lingering on the finish. Not bad, would be a good summer beer.

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 Iíve ever tasted. Flavorful for the style and very drinkable.

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