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!

Sammy (12600) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2007
Fresh bottle. Pale yellow with initial white fizzy head. Gazzy overcarbonated, with metallic in aftertaste. The lagerish taste is overwhelmed by the process, much like a macro.

pours a thin, white head with good carbonation. aroma is light and crisp-mostly malt. Light gold/yellow in color. flavor is crisp with a little sweetness. A bit bland though.

Bottle. Mildly sour barley malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with giant head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter weedy flavor. Not so good.

BVery (11209) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Outstanding for the style - deep yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste feature some grassy hops and a touch of sweetness - excellent alternative to BMC.

hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle... Clear, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Citrusy aroma with notes of lemon peel and a whisper of chicken broth. Malty, sweet flavor up front followed by very litght bitterness from modest hopping. Lemon, tea and light grapefruit. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2011
Clear gold pour. At first i thought this kinda smelled like shit, then I realized with some help from Walter that it actually smelled like STALE shit. Tasted not much different. Why bother lager should be the name. I just dont get it.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2004
An average score is 2.75, and this is an above average lager. Pours canary, with a good head. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Tastes malty, with some slight honey and citrus at the finish.

phaleslu (10547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle as a trade bonus from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, straw, sugar, corn, grains, and grass. Flavor of pale malts, sugar, mineral notes, grains and corn, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a grassy, mineral mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it, but certainly one of the better pale lagers I’ve had.

2.7
blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet grainy aroma with a hint of hops. The flavor is rather bland but balanced, with grainy malts and grassy hops. Not bad.
