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!

blipp (6959) - San Diego, California, 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.

Radek Kliber (6681) - 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.

b3shine (6581) - Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2012
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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Pours gold with a thin white head that dissipates rapidly. Smells of grapes and pepper. Taste is watery with some hop notes.

5000 (6300) - 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.

jredmond (6297) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2009
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.

PorterPounder (6215) - 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.

Rastacouere (6159) - 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.

Sledutah (6040) - Utah, USA - JUL 22, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to eelbasher
Clear golden with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma and flavors of sweet grains, wheat, corn, grassy and honey
OK, but too sweet for me.

TheBeerGod (5570) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2010
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. Ends with more grains, grassy hops, light lemon and sweet malt.
