East Village Pilsner - 
 What Fizzy Yellow Beer should be!

I believe that "Fizzy Yellow Beer" can and should be full of life and flavor unlike domestic mass produced, mundane, lifeless, boring, bland, fizzy yellow, insipid swill that takes up cooler space and tap handles at our local markets, pubs and restaurants. San Diego’s East Village is full of life and Green Flash is adding flavor to this burgeoning neighborhood with "East Village Pilsner". It’s made from premium European Pilsner Malt and Noble Hops. Traditional Pilsner lager yeast ferments the beer and imparts a clean flavor, yet unique character during the one-month lagering period. Of course our East Village Pilsner has a bit more hop than even the best European examples, which makes it truly a Green Flash Original. 5.3% ABV – 35 IBUs.

Sampled at AOT Wilmington. Poured a hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of starch, hops, lemon, spice and malt. A bit funky. Well balanced and held its own well among all the hop-infested and fruity bull shits.

Taste adds more bready malt sweetness and spice hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with light earthy/grass finish. Pretty tasty pils, more noble hop forward than average.
