Bottle. Golden amber color. Minimal white head that fades out and leaves no lacing. Cornish aroma, light hop scents also. Fairly crisp. Uninspired flavor, light hop finish. Fair. Thanks Lou!

bottle from lmgraz1, clear pale amber pour with basically no head, Different label from the one pictured...I like the one I have better. Mild hoppy nose, with some malts evident also. Corn flavor to start...a little hoppiness in the middle, finally finishing with some maltiness to finish. This is a basic lager and not very distinguishing. Maybe if they added a bit of citrus to brighten this up it would take off...just a thought.

lmgraz1 is my hookup for this one, which pours a golden tone, with light white head, that is pretty thin. Nose is pretty light as well, with some hop tones. Body is very crisp, the hops come out at the very end of the flavor, but not to the extent that they make the tail bitter. Top end of the taste is almost sweet, but again, it is very well balanced. This was the last of my CHBC brews, and I enjoyed every ounce of their brews.

Very smooth, very clean and delicious. It’s not overly hopped like so many beers today and contains no rice or corn or other adjuncts that make beers taste watery.

They aim for the cross over point, from the mass produce to carft. considering, this is a highly drinkable larger. Rick is a great brewer, Try this,.

Thin, wispy, white head with good carbonation. Light crisp aroma that is mainly malts. Light gold in color. Light crisp flavor with a good helping of corn. Pretty bland though. Slight dry finish. Not recommended.

Average golden colored easy drinking lager. Medium bodied, sweet malt flavors and a light dusty bitterness. Finishes with a short sweetness.

small white head on a golden yellow beer. LIght grain aroma, some malt flavor met by bitterness, but neither are very strong. Light body, finishes on the sweet end

With the name "East Coast Lager" I atuomatically thought this beer would be a red lager in the vain of Yuengling Lager. I was wrong; this beer had a yellow Schaeffer beer appearance. Hollow craft brewed lager, reminded me more of a New York state beer (Koch’s Golden Anniversary) than a New Jersey beer (Flying Fish).

Drinkable - I had this one on tap at Sippin’ by the River last Sunday (I think). It doesn’t stick out in my mind as one of the more memorable beers that I had that day, so I can only assume that it wasn’t the best (nor the worst).
