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!

Moderate old grain aroma. Hazy golden color with a medium white head. Mild bitter beginning that fades in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Outstanding for the style - deep yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste feature some grassy hops and a touch of sweetness - excellent alternative to BMC.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz can. Murky medium gold pour with a rocky white head. Wort-like aroma with some grainy notes. Flavor has some grainy notes, cereal like blandness, pretty plain lager but not bad tasting - does not have the adjunct notes that the big macros have. Smooth mouthfeel, overall, decent.

BrewBoxer (1871) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle. Pale yellow color. No flavor, smell or characteristics really. Just a better choice of a session beer over a Macro

badwhale (345) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow with a moderate white head. Lots of effervescence, and a scent of lemon. Has a pretty bland mouthfeel / taste. Malty notes, and pretty bland. Not offensive...just....there.

mike67 (767) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head, a lot of lacing and carbonation. Aroma is of pale malt and grassy hops. Medium, crisp body. A good amount of herbal hops is balanced by biscuit malt on the palate. Finish is long, clean and hoppy. I did not expect much from this brew, but I actually enjoyed it.

MadIndian (2342) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2011
A simple beer. Gold pour mild malt, floral hop aroma. A clean midly hop bitter finish. Very plain.

ben4321 (3749) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/21/11

Aroma: The nose is mostly made up of floral, citrus, yeast, and grain notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a foamy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid sweet up-front, transitioning into a later bitterness; aftertaste is quite off
Palate: The body is light, the mouthfeel is crisp and clean, and it ends with a lengthy, poor finish
Overall Impression: This one was a basic, rather unexciting, attempt at a lager. I thought the components were pretty decent overall, but that finish really damages my opinion of the beer. It just doesn’t leave a good taste in your mouth, and, since it is your final impression, it doesn’t leave a good feeling about the beer. Still, that is only one component of the beer, and so I will try not to let it completely affect my opinion/score.

very substandard with a weak malty presence and a very grassy hoppy after taste. weak palate and little fizz to the beer. its good only for social situations.

The aroma is dusty and metallic with malt and hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not a very good drink.
