A decent lager but nothing memorable. Looks good, tastes good, feels good, but just that. Good.

Tasty for a Lager which is not my style but this one is decent. Good flavor and very drinkable. Nice session type lager perfect for the warm weather.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle acquired in trade from a non-Beer Advocate member. Sampled on July 3, 2015.

The pour is a slightly cloudy golden yellow tone with a nice, foamy head.

The aroma has pale roasted malts, a touch of moss, and grassy hops.

Light to medium body.

Sweet light malt flavor to start balanced with mildly dry bitterness to end. It is your basic no frills lager.

On-tap @ Cricket Hill Brewing Co. in Fairfield, NJ.

Light gold in color with a small white head and great clarity. Light grainy malt aroma and the hops are faint as well. Light sweetness in the flavor. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Very clean and drinkable.

Billed as a Helles lager, it lacks the malt sweetness found in some of the better versions of the style. When speaking with Cricket Hill Founder, Rick Reed, he mentioned the East Coast Lager is pretty much all he drinks at the brewery. It is easy drinking and crisp, so I can see why.

Always the first thing to start with for the beginner at Cricket Hill. Better than any Budweiser, Miller Light, or Coors you will ever have

10/26...pours clear light gold, mostly see through. Wisps of foam, little else. Mild straw, bread, grassy smell. Light taste, small hop bite. A touch chewy. Smooth flavorful lager. When compared to the style, real good.
