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!

Kuzo (115) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Pours a light gold with virtually no head. Aroma is light but has hints of bready malt and citrus hops. The taste is grassy hops with a balanced bitterness and a touch of biscuit. Very light bodied but doesn’t taste watered down and is easy to drink. The carbonation brings out the hops nicely. At only 4% you could drink this all day...literally.

BigBeerDaddy (7) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011 does not count
Clear-amber with large gatherings. Very odd old lime lemon smell. Slides down the throat without indifference. Grassweed medicine? With as pure and fresh as it is our family loves this beer for what it is worth...a lot!

Radek Kliber (6594) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle 355ml
Aroma straight pale malt , toasted feel , malty base with light hop notes. Old traditional continental lager like.
Appearance amber gold with white top. Some lace is shown.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied, toasted malts behind. Generic malt feel with almost no hop presence in profile. That would be fine if malt was better (wet cloth issue). Average. Note – reminded me of many old school Russian pale lagers.

markwise (4624) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2010
12oz bottle from jcwattsrugger. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is slight malt, sweetness, and some more sweetness with a hop or two. Flavor is similar with sweet, malt, and a few hops. Clean finish, not a lot of yeastiness. Good starter, very sessionable.

phaleslu (7226) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle as a trade bonus from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, straw, sugar, corn, grains, and grass. Flavor of pale malts, sugar, mineral notes, grains and corn, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a grassy, mineral mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it, but certainly one of the better pale lagers I’ve had.

Bottle. Amber pour with a short, off-white head. Grassy and floral hops in the nose with sweet malt, grains and light lemon. Taste is light lemon, grassy hops, floral notes, soft biscuity malt, grains and a hint of honey. Body is medium with bubbly carbonation.

bhensonb (12130) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy gold with a foamy 2 finger white head. There’s a very light toffee note with a large amount of floral hop. Medium plus body with sharp, foamy carbonation. I’m getting a mild toffee flavor with a lot of floral hop. It’s lightly sweet and pretty bitter all at once. Finish seems grassy bitter. Drinks very well.

Bottle pours a clear yellow. Nose of pine, hops. Taste of bitter hops, pine and light malt. Rather good for the style.

Capa (2237) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Clear golden with a white head. Malty, light fruits, and some grassy, hoppy notes int he aroma. Bubbly mouth. Flavor is much like the aroma. Really not much in the way of flavor, this one seems like Cricket Hill’s shot at BMC. Decent.
