COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Engine 15. So-so drinking beer. No aroma. Light yellow with a lace sheet. Bland though a dry lightly hopped finish was pleasant.

rbrazell (1634) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Clear yellow pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of grainy malts, yeastiness and floral hopiness. Flavor is crisp and clean with some backing bready sweetness and floral hopiness. Clean quick ending and medium light bodied. I can get down with this.

jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours a pale yellow on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of pilsener, munich, and shitty corn malts. Taste follows, slightly dry finish. Decent for the style, but I hate pilseners.

DrSilverworm (6317) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
On tap from a keg labeled "East Village Pilsner". Clear yellow color. Good foamy big white head, leaves good lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Not as fizzy as the name might lead you to believe, definitely nothing like the macros, actually kind of a nice texture. Medium body, more dry texture. Aroma is bready and lagery. Not over-hopped, pretty clean aroma, light bitter, hint of skunk, light metal. Pretty drinkable and inoffensive overall, that’s the best I think I can hope for from fizzy yellow beer.
