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!

ben4321 (4781) - 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.

bottle. a cloudy pale gold with no head. no aroma. super subtle. a hint of vanilla and one drop of bittering hop in a bottle. light, dry, and fluffy. like drinking cotton balls.

Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is malts with a hint of hops. Mildly sweet with medium bitterness. Solid body for the style with a slightly bitter finish. Overall pretty good for the style. I certainly prefer this to most all others in this style.

slightly hazy, not much foam, visible carbonation. Malty grain in the nose. Grainy malt flavor, dry hop bit. A bit muddied

Bottle pours gold with a white head. I had to double check the date on this after first whiff, but it was ok. Nose was extremely stale with a subtle hint of citrus. Flavor wasn’t any better.

12 oz. bottle in a shaker. Thin golden pour with small head. Grassy, citrus aroma. Spicy hop flavor, with a mildly sweet finish. More enjoyable than your standard macro, but not by much.

This beer wasnt as terrible as some ratings but it wasnt very appealing. Slight hops taste with a thick kind of stale finish.

Genuinely unpleasant, this tastes like an adjunct-heavy pale ale rather than a pale lager; predominant flavor of sandpaper, little else. Am hoping for better with this brewer
