Notes / Commercial Description:
Crack open an Island Coastal Lager (ICL) and you’ll know. This beer was made for easy drinking.

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, ICL is an American Craft Lager created to be your alternative to those mass-market brands that are made with corner-cutting fillers like, rice, corn and preservatives. ICL is craft brewed with only the freshest, highest quality ingredients. Perfectly balanced with a smooth taste, light body and crisp mouthfeel, it’s a perfect year-round, everyday easy drinker in the cooler or on your tapline.

This fine American Craft Lager should be served super cold and enjoyed at one’s leisure. Pairs well with a wide array of delicious food, from tacos and burgers to grilled fish and steak

Terrible. What a waste of a $10 six pack. Love some quality micro lagers. This ain’t one of them.

Tasted straight from the can from the 2 6 packs I've purchased of it. Slightly sweet smell with a bit of a soft biscuit on the nose. Taste slightly sweet, that is balanced with a slight hint of hops and a clean crisp finish. Smooth drinking beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi-clear golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma is light grain, malt and hops. The taste is clean and crisp. A very good southern summer session beer.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate honey orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy foamy off-white head that reduces to a small to medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of slightly sweet cereal grainy malts with hints of toasted + caramel malts. Very light aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of cereal grain + toasted + caramel malts with moderate amounts of grainy sweetness. That is followed by very light flavors of grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades relatively quickly leaving a lingering grainy malt sweetness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A more flavorful alternative to macro lagers but a touch sweeter than I would prefer to make this really easy drinking. Enjoyable and refreshing after being out by the pool with the kids for a few hours in the middle of the day. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.
