Tag line says it all "fine beer" It’s fine, not spectacular but easy drinking with a nice creamy slightly sweet after taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a single 12-oz can from Summer Sun Garden & Brew in Missoula, MT. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that leaves behind spotty lacing and a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain, honey and some grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of golden grain, multi dry hop profile and some resin. Finish is semi-dry with a light grassy hop aftertaste. The original Great Falls Select back in the early 1960s was a pale lager. The current Great Falls Select is more like a golden ale and pale ale hybrid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A surprisingly bitter American Pale Ale out of the burgeoning Montana beer scene. A little pricey for a 12-pack of cans (I believe the only way this beer is available), but well worth it if you can find it on sale. Slightly sweet aroma. It pours a little cloudy with a strong, fluffy head. Tastes of grains up front, with a very dry aftertaste. This must be a fantastic draft beer. Hope I find it on tap somewhere.

Can, enjoyed while at the lake. Medium golden colour. Lightly toasted pale malts, light caramel, mildly bitter finish. Decent for a session for sure. Not sure about the Pilsener designation for style though...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at the 2nd annual Montana Brewers festival. I wrote this down as Select Pale, in the sheet I got that lists the beers at the festival, it’s called a Cream Ale, so who knows. Anyway, hazy light gold/yellow, thick frothy white head. Aroma of butter and mild hops. Taste is buttery again with plain mild hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Mackenzie River Pizza Co, Great Falls. Clear, pale gold. I really couldn’t distinguish an aroma. Taste is honeyish malt with a nice bittering of grassy hops. Palate is light and watery. Pretty flavorful lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft @ Harvest Moon. Pours a nice light golden amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one. Stan (Harvest Moon owner/brewer) said it is similar to the Mulligan (retired) recipe.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - U-Bet Casino. New beer by Harvest Moon Brewery. Do not know much about it, or its particulars. Will send Corrections shortly.
Nice Hops Aroma, no fruity-all about the Micro in this glass. Pours a short head, and has a nice light amber appeal. Not over powering or over-done, and is a good pour if you want more then one or two. Not filling at all.
