COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What the classic American beers would be like if the major brewers put some soul into them. An all malt beer with light hop flavor and a delicate aroma. The perfect beer for summertime refreshment.

On tap at Skagit River, pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of corn and light biscuity notes. Flavour is clean and crisp, with notes of corn and biscuity. Smooth and drinkable. Obviously not exciting but it’s well-executed.

Draught at Naked City, Seattle, as Delrio Lager
Pale blond color, hazy. Very nice aroma, delicate, corn and cereals, crispy. The flavor tends to be similar but less interesting, with a papery edge; dry mouthfeel, with correct bitterness.
A respectable Lager; and at this gravity, a good choice.

poisoneddwarf (1761) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at the Radiohead concert in Seattle last night. Yes, I rated a beer at a concert. I am that beergeeky. Aroma is corny, grainy, dull. Pours clear gold with a quickly dissipating medium white head. Flavor is pale lager with a bit more hop character. Lightly sweet and finishes faintly bitter. Tastes a little grainy. Starts out highly carbonated but goes completely flat towards the end of the glass. The brewery claims this has more "soul" than the major brewers, but I would be hard-pressed to differentiate this from those macro beers in a blind taste test.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Clear piss yellow color/ white head. Dusty pils malt, salty peppery smell. light bodied with average co2. Very light dry hay flavor with a touch of honey and berry fruit sweetness- and i may be embellishing this a bit. Barely better than bmc macro crap.

Good color, clarity and head. This had the lager aroma and was tasty with a good finish. This was a nice average lager.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Mt Vernon, Washington. Pours a clear, pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and thin white ring. Aroma of golden and crystal malt, light citrus zest, some fruity character and a touch of honey. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of crystal malt, fruity, white pepper and a touch of honey. Finish is semi-sweet with a light citrus and fruity malt aftertaste that quickly disappears.

On tap at Skagit River Brewery in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a clean golden yellow body with a small dense white head. Grainy, biscuity, cereal nose. Honey sweet, grassy flavor and smooth, standard finish. Very light and true to style.

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Crystal clear pale yellow with a dense and slightly creamy white head. Neutral, slightly yeasty/bready nose. Body’s slightly heavier than light, but not too much so. Super biscuity and toasty mid-palate, lots of grain husk in there, too. Even a little leafy toward the end. Tons of flavor for the abv.
