COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the beer you want if youíre working in the yard or garage, camping on the river or lake or after the weekend softball game. Thatís why we call Idaho Select Lager our lawn mower or recreational beer. Itís light clean and crisp thirst quenching and satisfying without filling you up. Brewed with Idaho grown Pilsner malt that gives a clean light malt flavor, finishing with a crisp hop sparkle to make a refreshing light lager. Only 124 Calories,

Unsure of the previous disses against this, a near perfect lager. Medium golden body with thick, pillowy head. Pure grain aroma, sweet corn, cooked vegetables. Taste brings more grain flavor, slick mouthfeel, medium weight. A touch of hops bitterness on the tail end. Beats any of the commercial macrobrews hands down. Well done!

This beer is bad beyond belief. Itís like they are getting the grain (malt, if any is used) from the truck that was taking a spoiled batch to the pig farm. This product is right up in price with the quality offerings from Deschutes and New Belgium too. Itís amazing what some people will drink.

12 oz bottle- Pours pale clear golden with one finger head and limited lace. Aroma seems to be off, creamed corn and almost funky, but in a odd way, even if it were in some bretty type beer I donít think iíd like this, just kind of Weird. The taste is worse than the aroma, creamed corn that came straight from a tin can, and sat in the sun for a year or so. What is wrong with this beer? Did I get a old bottle from the old brewing days when this brewer brewed some of the worst beers on record (from what I hear they have a new very experienced master brewer), or did I get a bad bottle, or even worse is this is actually how the beer is supposed to taste? Was questioning whether I should post this, but I did get it out of my beer club, so I wouldnít think it was old. If I do ever get a chance to try this again and am somehow impressed then I will rerate it.

On tap at brewhouse Light, light yellow - really light. Hints of white foam. Nose carries diacetyl and corn, not much else. Flavor is of maize, and a hint of salinity - really thinned out. Empty body with hi carb and semi dry finish. I guess itís better than Keystone, but not much. Serving type: on-tap 05-19-2012

12 oz bottle thanks to Chris at Caddyshack. Aroma is bready malt, creamed corn. Pours pale pale yellow with a medium white sustaining head. Taste is lightly sweet with faint bitter dryness in the finish. Has a strange, almost vegetal character (bell peppers?)--itís not a bad taste, just kind of odd in a lager not touting any added vegetables. Carbonation is fairly soft, body is thin. Not too bad, but itís kind of strange.
