COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The East Coast Lager is an easy drinking ďgoldenĒ 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 gentlenessÖ this beer is magnificent!

Bottle to pint (thanks John). Looks good for a lager; gold with fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and a little skunky, but in a good way. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

jcos (1527) - Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on October 28th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange yellow, darker than the standard "pale lager".
Aroma: Aroma of faint floral hop, some cereal malt but not bad like other pale lagers.
Taste:Some floral notes, citrus, light bitterness, light malt
Palate:Light body, quick aftertaste.

Summary: First off, thanks Ben! I figured it was appropriate to drink this "East Coast Lager" while the East Coast is about to get drenched by Hurricane/Whatever Sandy. To be fair, I see pale lager donít think very much of the beer. However, Iím impressed with this one. Nice lighter beer, nothing outstanding but it might be the best of itís category Iíve had. Oh, and Ben, if you are still reading, whatever bad finish you tasted on your sample of this beer is not on this one.

Pours pale gold with a thin, soapy, white head that has decent retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is grass, spice, hay, toast, bready yeast and cereal grain. Flavor is mostly a sort of sweet breadiness up front with some toast coming in toward the finish along with the spicy, planty hops. Palate is thin throughout, starts a little oily and finishes off dry with a moderate strength, sharp carbonation. Itís odd, the hops donít really come in until near the finish, but fade very quick and the beer finishes pretty clean, despite starting sweet and finishing hoppy (relative to the style in both cases), I would imagine this could appeal to many BMC drinkers. Seems more like a premium lager, as is is pretty well hopped and fairly malty, though it may not be all malt.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle from wine warehouse Charlottesville. Pours dark golden with a quarter inch of white foam which leaves a slight amount of lacing. Not much on the nose except for a faint malt smell. Fairly thin on the tongue witha bit of a citrus thing on the finish. Not as crisp and clean or as flavorful as Iíd hoped.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2012
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a medium to thick white head. Sweet corn and grain on the nose. Weird grain. Strange, almost chalky bitterness. Sweet and grainy on the finish.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Itís got the slightly sweet maltiness of a lot of lagers, but is fairly easy to drink. Pours cloudy with no head. OK, but nothing remarkable.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
From notes: Poured hazy straw color with a small, thin white head that was gone quickly. Aroma was light, with grassy and yeasty notes. Body is a touch on the thin side. Flavor was very light. Grassy, with a touch of yeast and maybe a touch of citrus.
