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!

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,.

Dorwart (2375) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2004
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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2004
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).

100th rating with Jine. Now we gets our crowns, baby. The beer was unique for such a celebration. Very pale for a special brew. Hoppy, but a mellowed hoppiness. Grainy without hurting the throat or being wheaty, very slightly nutty. The bar is fantastic, one of the few bars left in North New Jersey left for live music and just rocking and chilling a Friday night away at the same time. Very real, very nice.
