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!

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Gold, thin white head. Musty, earthy aroma. Surprisingly bitter up front - kind of woodsy - followed bu a definative cereal flavor. Finishes clean. Nicely drinkable with enough bitterness to keep it interesting.

Patrickctenchi (6028) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a short, off-white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and malt. Taste is a doughy, leafy, bitter. Not exactly pleasant.

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.

thanks to jcwattsrugger for this one. Aroma of corn dominates but has hints of maltiness in there as well. Pours a golden clear. Flavor is cornish as well with some an almost straw or hay flavor. Medium palate for the style and a tad on the foamy side. Not the best PL I’ve had but not the worst. In my book it is very drinkable if your gonna drink a PL.

Rather good aroma for a pale lager, bready and slightly sweet. It has a rather simple but effective pale lager taste to it, it has a light bitterness to it, the label doesn’t lie. Pretty good pale lager.

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.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Slightly pale golden coloured body with a medium sized dense white head. Aroma of cardboard, light skunks, some fresh hops and a stale lemon scent. Light-bodied; Sharp taste of fresh hops along with some nice pale malt. Aftertaste showcases the bitter hops along with a faint sweetness, mainly from the citrus. Overall, a nice lager that would be great in the summertime, but I’m sampling this thing near the beginning of Winter. Good to try if you can find it! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 28-November-2005.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was dough lagerish and fruity. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and was very typical. An OK brew just nothing special.

obguthr (5645) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Draft at Southwind Cafe Mathews VA: Weak corn aroma. Clear amber, medium light yellow, some glass adherence. Grainy with lemon zest at midpalate. Better than the macros, but still rather weak.

75th rating for this brew, and my personal 25th from Jersey. I’m beginning to like this brewery. Bottle. Sweet floral hops nose, malty. Pale, pale golden pour with a soapy off-beige head. Taste is lightly sweet, touch of grass and honeyed bread, citrus and light hops in the bg, but there’s a slight (non-grainy) )off-note. Low bitterness. Crisp body but not harsh, light but not too watery. Nice soft malts. Clean and gentle, refreshing and harmless; yes indeed one of the East Coast’s best lagers - which is actually saying something!
