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!

Single bottle from HyVee, Davenport. Hm, pours a golden color when my impression of an "East Coast" lager is shaped by the more amber colored Sams and Brooklyns and Yuengling. But okay. Sudsy head, lots of bubbles clinging to side, and a pronounced papery oxidation smell under the cap make this look like a bowling alley beer. I can catch a small amount of malt on the nose, nothing huge. But then, an agreeably malty taste with some peppery German hops right up front. Thought I caught a bit of extra saccharine, but it slipped away again. Finishes up nice and malty, just don’t know what this has that keeps it from being called a pilsener.

Bottle. Golden yellow with a white head. A bit on the bland side, yet drinkable. Malt, grass, yeast and floral aromas.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Golden straw, slight haze, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft hops on the nose, a bit of barnish wheaty malts as well.   Soft citrusy notes, pale hops, with a musty wheat background.   Seems more of an Ale than a lager.   Has a faint soapy dishwater or floral soap like backside.   Again, this feels a lot more Ale like than Lager like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms the nose becomes a bit more floral.   Smells like an Ale, feels like an Ale, finishes a bit like a lager, fairly smooth.   Still kinda up in the air on this one.   Its decent, even if a little bit of both worlds.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours light golden with little to no head. Aromas of grain, old socks, and light floral notes. The flavor is much of the same but with a odd finish. Ehhhh not feeling this at all.....here ya go drain!

Not as bad as some of the reviews would show. It is a basic american lager with a little bit of hops. Nothing great but not bad.

Piss colored with fluffy yellow head. Belgianesque aroma. Taste is fruity hoppy and metallic. Kinda gross. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (4710) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a short, off-white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and malt. Taste is a doughy, leafy, bitter. Not exactly pleasant.

Bottle. Sweet citrusy, slightly rancid aroma. Hazy golden with an excessively large foamy white head. Citrus peel, light bready malt, fruity flavor. Light body, lively carbonation.
