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!

What an incredibly Lager. I wasn’t expecting this at all. It has an out-of-this-world hop aroma almost akin to a Pale Ale. I love it. It is creamy and has a wonderful body, not too light or crisp as some Lagers get. It’s pale in color, like a bright straw yellow with white head. Super easy drinking but very flavorful at the same time. Might be my new favorite.

Very smooth, very clean and delicious. It’s not overly hopped like so many beers today and contains no rice or corn or other adjuncts that make beers taste watery.

12oz bottle. Pours straw yellow, decent white head. As expected. Welcoming aroma of bread and grassy hops. Amazing flavor! Malt body puts me back in my seat. Full of bread and malts. Perfect malt character, perfectly lagered. Three sips and the pint was gone! Amazing. I loved this Lager tremendously.

After touring the brewery, I had to try this beer. Real nice. Easy to drink lager. Was a big hit at my Superbowl party. I got a 1/6 keg of it and enjoying every glass.

The beer is very nicely brewed, well balanced, very good malt flavor. Very little bitter after taste for a nice smooth finish.

A nice blond lager. Hop aroma is a balance between noble and floral American type. Nice light finish, but not too dry. A unique and interesting American lager.

@Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - clear golden colour with a little white foam left; some cream and aromatic hoppiness; medium to full-bodied, some decent bitterness lasting long in an aromatic hoppy finish - very nice

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 Updated rating based on tap and bottle consumption: Clean crisp German helles like brew. No flaws and nice malt character with gentle hops. Nothing that will impress an ale drinker, but a really nice all-malt lager that is great for binge drinking. New Rating.

Clear and golden, not much head. Aroma has very little amounts of everything, with some distant fruity notes, malt, and maybe a touch of corn. Flavor is malty, and crisp, but no hop character. Basically well made, but a bit on the bland side. 5-4-5-4-10

They aim for the cross over point, from the mass produce to carft. considering, this is a highly drinkable larger. Rick is a great brewer, Try this,.
