Clear golden yellow, medium white head fades into a thin layer and leaves some wispy lacing behind. Aroma of grains, grassy hops and sweet malt. Taste is sweet with a bit of grassy hops, honey and malt. A touch of corn and mild bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink and even easier to forget. drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
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, m’self. LinusStick (3532) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
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. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2012
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.

12 oz. can, brewed in Stevens Point. Clean, hoppy, floral, dry, fresh, grainy, appetizing aroma features green apple and celery scents. The smell dissipates as one drinks. Pours a pale gold to straw color. The liquid is completely clear. Small to moderate amount of small, slow-rising bubbles. Large amount of thick, fluffy, long-lasting, nearly white head that appears more like the head of a Belgian pale ale than that of a typical pale lager. Nice, surprisingly extensive lacing. The taste features sweet, fruity (especially peach) malts as well as a dry bite in the back of the throat from the Cluster and Perle hops (according to the can). Pleasant taste but low in flavor by the standards of craft brewing, though quite flavorful for the style. Just a touch of metal in the finish, but it is only a minor detraction. Alcohol taste slightly noticeable, surprisingly. Light body, but not extremely light. Easy drinking and refreshing, as the can states. Not as crisp as one might expect for a lager. Dave’s BrewFarm Select Golden Lager is more like a good German Helles than a typical pale lager, but if one does consider it a pale lager, it’s pretty much as good as the style can get. I’m impressed. I’m a tough rater, so a 3.3 for this style is pretty darn good.

My last can, damn I’m going to miss this stuff. Normally I’d be drinking it straight from the can but today I pour. Color is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma of faint hops, honey, slight fruits, and malt. Taste is clean, grains, honey, nice hop presence, and sweet bready malts. Clean and refreshing. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2010
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. r464 (2377) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Quite malty in aroma and in flavor. Nutty, perhaps a bit sweet, with a smooth body and lingering finish. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2012
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. I’m not typically a lager guy, but this is top-notch. Almost perfect.
