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

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.

Inoffensive and sweet. No head at all even in a glass I've been using all afternoon with various beers.
Weird to me is the eerie effect of no bubbles but has a bit of carbonation.
Malty and thin. 4.5 ABV, Not bad. Very easy to drink.
Although, having had 3 it is very easy, too easy, to chug about 10 or 12. Not recommended for real alcoholics.

Goes down like water when cold.
