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.

Apparently not retired. It’s a good noble hoppy (and very hopppy) and smooth drinking amero-pils.

On tap at brewery. Pours a light yellow with a small white head with some lacing and nice looking carbonation. Aroma is of pils malt, bready malts, grass, and some light spicy saaz hop. Taste is similar to aroma but also has some light fruits and pine. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel an a dry, slightly bitter, moderate-short finish. Overall, a nice pils that is a nice change of pace from green flash’s typical offerings.

This was billed as Green Flash East Village Pilsner on tap at Maxs on Broadway in Baltimore. Very nice clean refreshing pilsner, with good flavor. Recommended for a pilsner on a hot summer day.

September 9th, 2011 - Green Flash’s cover of the Bohemian Pilsner is a hopped up, souped up take on a classic style. I had this sample from the taster room, and it made for a great opening round in a fun evening of beer tasting in Green Flash’s capacious brewing facility. Like most other pilasters, it pours with a generous and enveloping ashen white head, and perfumes the top of the glass with a dry pilsner malt scent. The flavor is anything but traditional - lots of pilsner malts offers a deep, rich flavor that the style sometimes skimps on. I also like that I can’t taste any of the corniness I often detect in pilsners. However, like many other beers in this vein, where the Fizzy Yellow Beer offers a wonderful alternative to adjunct beers or any of the macro selections, it is still best enjoyed while paired with either a big, bold meal or a hot day. By itself, the Fizzy Yellow Beer is not especially engaging. A sampler size was enough to whet my palate, and motivate me to move onto greener, or browner, pastures along the Green Flash’s line of offerings.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 On tap at the brewery, decent pils, not my favorite but i’m not a huge fan of the style.

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.

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.

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.

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.
