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!

bottle from lmgraz1. pours a clear pale yellow. a delightful light lager. similiar to a pale German weise beer but this has a slight dry hoppy finish. this would make a great summertime thirst quencher. Thanks Lou.

Bottle. Pours clear, light gold. Light malt aroma, some cracker and caramel. Sweet flavor, with more caramel, biscuit and some nice floral, grassy bitters to finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nothing to complain about here.

Dark Golden light amber no head; semi sweet malty aroma; Flava is fresh grain malt with notes of some hops and citrus(orange?) very robust full flavor; feels light crisp decent fizz; finishes dry and malty slightly roasty grain and a tart hint of lemon

not sure why this one got such low ratings from others. pours out of the bottle a clear golden-yellow hue complimented with mellow bubbles. a frothy, white head dissipates quickly to a minimal cover. aromas are subtle - roasted malts, hops, florals and citrus. flavors are equally well balanced and include sweet hops, coffee beans, florals, lemon and honey. slightly bitter during with a sweet finish - almost like dough sprinkled with brown sugar. medium-bodied, medium-carbonation. goes great with light fare and sweet treats.

jgb9348 (4739) - 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.

Had this on draft recently-poured a golden color with a small white head.Aromas were of some floral hops and also some toasted malts.These were also reflected somewhat in the taste as well as some caramel and bread.This is an easy drinking New Jersey Lager,not too bad.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Thanks John. Pours clear deep gold with white head. The aroma is solid for the style with ample amounts of floral and spice hop notes to go along with a malty sweet backbone. The taste has up front spicy, floral and lemon like hop bitterness that refreshes and gets your attention. It then smooths out and thins out to midway. As the finish approaches notes of sweet malts and touch of lightly roasted malts round things out. The hops persist into the after taste. If I were to have a refreshing lager on a hot day this would be a nice choice.

Pale golden colour. The nose is lightly grassy with a touch of pale malt character. Very fresh-smelling with a little bit of wheaty spice as well. Clean yeast. No sulphur but a nice fresh character. Solid lawnmower beer.
