12oz can. Golden-bronze, filtered. Thin, oily head. Sweet, sugary, beer factory aroma. Pretty shabby, with that sugary sweet six-row thing going on. Tastes more in line with something Minhas/Berghoff would do. There is a bit more hop character than your typical macro, but the six-row just cheapens the experience. There is some malt toastiness in it, and it doesn’t suffer as bad as other macro lagers when it approaches cellar and room temperatures. JPDIPSO (6261) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Clear golden color with a small off-white head. Hints of grain and generic hops, much akin to a light malt liquor. Light sweetness, with grain and mild caramel. Bits of herbal, to earthy hops. Just another stronger, industrial tasting lager. 3/10

A good looking, golden colored lager with a very thick, tall head that lasts a long time, and a thick lacing on the glass that would embarrass many Belgian ales. Standard lager aroma, reminiscent of Blatz as a child, when I would take a sip from Grandpa’s glass. Smooth malt flavor and very light hops, but definitely some sweetness to the point it would be hard to drink many of these. Unusually thick palate. A well constructed beer that delivers on the palate and appearance, with a bit more to offer than the ordinary yellow lager. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this can.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with some citrus and pineapple. The flavor is a mix of pears, oranges and apricots. The beer is very juicy tasting. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely the best pale lager I have ever tried. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Stevens Point version: The first packaged beer from Dave’s Brew Farm arrives in Minnesota. Picked up a 12-pack at Zipps in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a decent white head that has some nice retention and leaves behind a pillowy foam head. Some spotty lacing too. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of apple, some floral and spice hops and a touch of white bread. Taste is medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Flavors include some light apple, golden grain malt, a hint of allspice and some light Mozzarella. Why do all of the sudden have a craving for a Chicago style pizza? Finish is quite balanced with maybe a notch towards the sweet side. Mild bitterness at first and then a smooth aftertaste. Not your typical average macro-made lager and definitely not a lawn-mower beer. I can see this lager satisfy both the craft beer and lager drinking crowd.

Nice pour for a lager, slightly hazy with a decent head that fades after a few. Smell is just plain clean, perhaps a slight olfactory of high gravity. Oooh, quite strong personality for a lager, reminds me a bit of that pig’s eye I just rated. Yes, comes across more like a high gravity pale lager brew in flavor. Difficult at times. Same with finish. badgerben (5281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Can. Gold color with a thin head. Light marshmallow and dusty grain aroma. Easy malty flavor, moderate bitterness that’s in the earthy and floral realm. Not complex, but an easily drinkable session beer. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 5, 2010
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. jsquire (4559) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2010
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. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Can, thanks tytoanderso. Nose is corny and sweet, a little plastic/rubber. Flavor is sweet and with some very mild hop bitterness. More flavor than most shitty pale lagers, but still pretty shitty.
