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 ounce bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with an average white chunky head. Aroma of grain, malt and floral hops. Not much bitterness. Not your typical lager.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/21/11

Aroma: The nose is mostly made up of floral, citrus, yeast, and grain notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a foamy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid sweet up-front, transitioning into a later bitterness; aftertaste is quite off
Palate: The body is light, the mouthfeel is crisp and clean, and it ends with a lengthy, poor finish
Overall Impression: This one was a basic, rather unexciting, attempt at a lager. I thought the components were pretty decent overall, but that finish really damages my opinion of the beer. It just doesn’t leave a good taste in your mouth, and, since it is your final impression, it doesn’t leave a good feeling about the beer. Still, that is only one component of the beer, and so I will try not to let it completely affect my opinion/score.

Draft at Southwind Cafe Mathews VA: Weak corn aroma. Clear amber, medium light yellow, some glass adherence. Grainy with lemon zest at midpalate. Better than the macros, but still rather weak.

Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Gold, thin white head. Musty, earthy aroma. Surprisingly bitter up front - kind of woodsy - followed bu a definative cereal flavor. Finishes clean. Nicely drinkable with enough bitterness to keep it interesting.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 12 oz bottle. Poured a golden/yellow with an average white head that quickly faded. The body on this one had barely any visibile carbonation and looked flat. Aroma was very simple with a malt base and a slightly noticable floral hop aroma in the background. Flavor was mostly malt dominant with a medium mouthfeel. Nothing special about this brew.

jgb9348 (6392) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Slightly pale golden coloured body with a medium sized dense white head. Aroma of cardboard, light skunks, some fresh hops and a stale lemon scent. Light-bodied; Sharp taste of fresh hops along with some nice pale malt. Aftertaste showcases the bitter hops along with a faint sweetness, mainly from the citrus. Overall, a nice lager that would be great in the summertime, but I’m sampling this thing near the beginning of Winter. Good to try if you can find it! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 28-November-2005.

Pours gold with a thin white head that dissipates rapidly. Smells of grapes and pepper. Taste is watery with some hop notes.

thanks to jcwattsrugger for this one. Aroma of corn dominates but has hints of maltiness in there as well. Pours a golden clear. Flavor is cornish as well with some an almost straw or hay flavor. Medium palate for the style and a tad on the foamy side. Not the best PL I’ve had but not the worst. In my book it is very drinkable if your gonna drink a PL.

thedm (6279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was dough lagerish and fruity. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and was very typical. An OK brew just nothing special.

TheBeerGod (6241) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Amber pour with a short, off-white head. Grassy and floral hops in the nose with sweet malt, grains and light lemon. Taste is light lemon, grassy hops, floral notes, soft biscuity malt, grains and a hint of honey. Body is medium with bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grains, grassy hops, light lemon and sweet malt.
