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!

phaleslu (6204) - 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.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Golden straw, slight haze, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft hops on the nose, a bit of barnish wheaty malts as well.   Soft citrusy notes, pale hops, with a musty wheat background.   Seems more of an Ale than a lager.   Has a faint soapy dishwater or floral soap like backside.   Again, this feels a lot more Ale like than Lager like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms the nose becomes a bit more floral.   Smells like an Ale, feels like an Ale, finishes a bit like a lager, fairly smooth.   Still kinda up in the air on this one.   Its decent, even if a little bit of both worlds.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2005
Diminishing white head topples a hazy light gold dye. Unassertive pils malt requests at graininess to compensate its lack of honeyish and bready substance. Slightly sulfury nature boosts the soapy feel. Light bodied, biting carbonation, rather tart and citric nature that does not please me much, but gently floral aftertaste. Very average ultimately.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2012
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.

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet grainy aroma with a hint of hops. The flavor is rather bland but balanced, with grainy malts and grassy hops. Not bad.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden body white head. Thin body sweet and lightly earthy, grainy and a hint of malt. Simple and sessionable but not for me.

PorterPounder (5346) - 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.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Tasted at Noogfest 4.0 (2008). This pale lager pours a light gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grass and grain, touch of corn. A medium to light bodied lager. The malts are grass and grain, with a hint of corn. The hops are mild and slightly spicy. Lively carbonation. A crisp and clean tasting pale lager. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle split with Tony. Pours a clear yellow small white lacing. The Aroma is light hay. Taste is smooth, flavorless, but not offensive. Decent lager.
