COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The East Coast Lager is an easy drinking “golden” lager with a wonderful balance of crisp malt flavors and flowery hop finish. Built specifically with very low bitter aftertaste, the aroma is as clean as the taste. A difficult beer to brew because of the gentleness… this beer is magnificent!

DYCSoccer17 (3603) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Bottle. Fruity, floral sweet aroma. Bready, yeasty sour aroma as well. Definitely some funkiness in the nose. Transparent yellow color with small mildly frothy white head. Bready, doughy start turning very very very metallic. Holy crap. It’s like drinking pennies. Quite sweet without much in the way of hops. A half a step up from BMC.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2005
12z bottle. Hazy, dull golden hue. Minimal white head. Grapefruit and straw in the nose. Bread and apples. Light but crisp. Easy drinking, yet with character. Definite bubblegum flavors, along with citrus hop finish. Grapefruit and pine. Crisp and bready. For being light and pale, it has a big taste.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2005
not sure why this one got such low ratings from others. pours out of the bottle a clear golden-yellow hue complimented with mellow bubbles. a frothy, white head dissipates quickly to a minimal cover. aromas are subtle - roasted malts, hops, florals and citrus. flavors are equally well balanced and include sweet hops, coffee beans, florals, lemon and honey. slightly bitter during with a sweet finish - almost like dough sprinkled with brown sugar. medium-bodied, medium-carbonation. goes great with light fare and sweet treats.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Mild citrus and herbal hops over bready malts in the aroma. Brilliant, clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting white head. Soapy, floral, herbal character to the lightly grainy flavour with fair bitterness and a hint of sulfur. Light body is refreshing with lively carbonation. Sampled at Kennett Sqaure Brewfest.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle... Clear, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Citrusy aroma with notes of lemon peel and a whisper of chicken broth. Malty, sweet flavor up front followed by very litght bitterness from modest hopping. Lemon, tea and light grapefruit. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2005
Diminishing white head topples a hazy light gold dye. Unassertive pils malt requests at graininess to compensate its lack of honeyish and bready substance. Slightly sulfury nature boosts the soapy feel. Light bodied, biting carbonation, rather tart and citric nature that does not please me much, but gently floral aftertaste. Very average ultimately.

FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2005
The beer pours a brilliantly clear, straw-gold color that sits beneath a frothy pale cream colored head that is an ample 2.5 fingers thick in my small tulip glass. The aroma is fairly clean with some spicy herbal notes, a bit of lemon and a clean, sweet grainy maltiness. For a pale lager the aroma is pretty nice, makes it seem refreshing and inviting to drink on a warm summer afternoon. The beer is quite crisp, with an astringent herbal hoppiness that moves to a nice bitterness as the beer passes through my mouth. This beer is quite refreshing; this would be nice on a hot summer’s day. It is certainly a big step up from your standard BMC; I really like the spicy, lemon tinted, herbal hop notes in this beer. The key to this beer is to drink it pretty cold, I can’t see this tasting nearly as well if I allowed it to warm up to even ale temperatures, as is it is a good rendition of the style.
