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!

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.

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 don’t think very much of the beer. However, I’m impressed with this one. Nice lighter beer, nothing outstanding but it might be the best of it’s category I’ve 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. It’s odd, the hops don’t 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.
