3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

Single bottle from HyVee, Davenport. Hm, pours a golden color when my impression of an "East Coast" lager is shaped by the more amber colored Sams and Brooklyns and Yuengling. But okay. Sudsy head, lots of bubbles clinging to side, and a pronounced papery oxidation smell under the cap make this look like a bowling alley beer. I can catch a small amount of malt on the nose, nothing huge. But then, an agreeably malty taste with some peppery German hops right up front. Thought I caught a bit of extra saccharine, but it slipped away again. Finishes up nice and malty, just don’t know what this has that keeps it from being called a pilsener.

Bottle. Golden yellow with a white head. A bit on the bland side, yet drinkable. Malt, grass, yeast and floral aromas.
