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!

Location/Date:Bottle on October 28th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange yellow, darker than the standard "pale lager".
Aroma: Aroma of faint floral hop, some cereal malt but not bad like other pale lagers.
Taste:Some floral notes, citrus, light bitterness, light malt
Palate:Light body, quick aftertaste.

Summary: First off, thanks Ben! I figured it was appropriate to drink this "East Coast Lager" while the East Coast is about to get drenched by Hurricane/Whatever Sandy. To be fair, I see pale lager don’t think very much of the beer. However, I’m impressed with this one. Nice lighter beer, nothing outstanding but it might be the best of it’s category I’ve had. Oh, and Ben, if you are still reading, whatever bad finish you tasted on your sample of this beer is not on this one.

12 oz. bottle supplied by jcwattsrugger - many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a clear deep orange with which a snowy white head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of seaweed, LME, Bible paper, straw, noble hops, and cotton. Tastes the same with the addition of wet cardboard, banana peppers, and dry bread yeast. WtF is this?

Appearance: Slightly to moderately hazy golden body with a tall and dense white head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: The smell is of corn and malt sweetness, hints of florallnes, but overall like a poor unfinished homebrew.
Taste: Mildly sweet, tastes underattenuated and very poor quality homebrew like. Malts are prominent, but that’s not saying there’s a lot of flavor in it. There are no flaws but this is pretty bad.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated. Not crisp at all.
Overall: I am sorry dudes, but I can’t find a redeeming quality in this. If I spent $11 on a six pack of this I’d be very pissed.

Usually a fan of both lagers and Cricket Hill, wasn’t a huge fan of this one. A bit on the too hoppy side for a lager. Good golden color. This one just didn’t do it for me.

Golden pour with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with some grassy notes. Flavor is predominantly sweet malts with some subtle floral hop notes in the finish. Not too shabby for a pale lager. Thanks to Mikeq215 for hooking me up with a bottle!

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
