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!

blipp (9151) - 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.

Bottle to pint (thanks John). Looks good for a lager; gold with fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and a little skunky, but in a good way. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2009
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.

jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle split with Tony. Pours a clear yellow small white lacing. The Aroma is light hay. Taste is smooth, flavorless, but not offensive. Decent lager.

PorterPounder (7892) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz can. Murky medium gold pour with a rocky white head. Wort-like aroma with some grainy notes. Flavor has some grainy notes, cereal like blandness, pretty plain lager but not bad tasting - does not have the adjunct notes that the big macros have. Smooth mouthfeel, overall, decent.

Sledutah (7488) - Utah, USA - JUL 22, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to eelbasher
Clear golden with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma and flavors of sweet grains, wheat, corn, grassy and honey
OK, but too sweet for me.

Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle 355ml
Aroma straight pale malt , toasted feel , malty base with light hop notes. Old traditional continental lager like.
Appearance amber gold with white top. Some lace is shown.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied, toasted malts behind. Generic malt feel with almost no hop presence in profile. That would be fine if malt was better (wet cloth issue). Average. Note – reminded me of many old school Russian pale lagers.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Golden straw, slight haze, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft hops on the nose, a bit of barnish wheaty malts as well.   Soft citrusy notes, pale hops, with a musty wheat background.   Seems more of an Ale than a lager.   Has a faint soapy dishwater or floral soap like backside.   Again, this feels a lot more Ale like than Lager like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms the nose becomes a bit more floral.   Smells like an Ale, feels like an Ale, finishes a bit like a lager, fairly smooth.   Still kinda up in the air on this one.   Its decent, even if a little bit of both worlds.

wlajwl (6742) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Rather good aroma for a pale lager, bready and slightly sweet. It has a rather simple but effective pale lager taste to it, it has a light bitterness to it, the label doesn’t lie. Pretty good pale lager.

Patrickctenchi (6552) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a short, off-white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and malt. Taste is a doughy, leafy, bitter. Not exactly pleasant.
