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!

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head, a lot of lacing and carbonation. Aroma is of pale malt and grassy hops. Medium, crisp body. A good amount of herbal hops is balanced by biscuit malt on the palate. Finish is long, clean and hoppy. I did not expect much from this brew, but I actually enjoyed it.

Brewer said this was brewed in the helles style. Pale gold with small head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is initially much more hoppy than a traditional pale lager or helles. Slightly floral and earthy hops, but then a firm toasted malt aroma is noticed. Flavor is balanced pretty well between hops and light malts. Slightly toasty, sweet, light caramel, and bready pils malt. Moderate crisp and bitter finish.

Mild citrus and herbal hops over bready malts in the aroma. Brilliant, clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting white head. Soapy, floral, herbal character to the lightly grainy flavour with fair bitterness and a hint of sulfur. Light body is refreshing with lively carbonation. Sampled at Kennett Sqaure Brewfest.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale gold, with a very fluffy white head, and soapy, sticky lacing. Aroma has some cider notes, very distant chocolate, grainy malt, and a light hoppiness. Flat malts in the flavor, slight starch, very distant smoke. Crisp, easy drinking. Expected worse from this.

Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, corn, and hops. Flavor is hops and malt. Crisp and refreshing, with a medium body. This is a simple beer, but pretty good.

Bottle pours a clear yellow. Nose of pine, hops. Taste of bitter hops, pine and light malt. Rather good for the style.

Bottle received as a gift at RBWG -- thanks! Pours a filtered golden color with a fleeting white head. Smells of potassium and mint leaves -- odd. Nice malt backbone in the flavor with notes of salt and waxy grapefruit rind from the hops. Not bad at all.

drank last day of August out east on LI, 12 fl oz brown bottle in a beer koozie, slight sample of aroma, definitely deserves to be poured into a pint glass if available, lingers on your palette, solid lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
