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.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Draft sample. Poured clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2012
Tap. Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is of grassy and floral hops, sweet malts and some biscuitty notes. The flavor follows the nose, super grassy and floral with the biscuit and sweet malts. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall a solid Lager.

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Pint @ Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY. This is a solid pilsener with some surprisingly strong hop flavors than your typical pilsener. Clean, refreshing with floral and citrus notes. Good session beer.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Sampled at Brewvival 2012. Clear golden yellow pour. Aroma of sweet corn. Decent sazzy noble hop flavor with a big bitterness. Good for the style I’d guess, but it didn’t really do much for me.

Draught @ Green Flash. Looks as it’s named. Malts, nuts, bread, hint of hops, grass. Unbalanced, perhaps, profiles unmatched.

BrewBoxer (2001) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Draft. Gold color with a light head that remains thin. Taste is not as light and crisp as I’d expect but pretty flavorful and well balanced. Pretty good

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Shortlived white head over totally clear metallic golden beer. Pure malty nose, pale malts’ galore, dry. Hopbitter, no USA hops; dry, again pale malts but in coherence with the hops. Dry, light bodied, grist slickness. Very convincing Bohemian pilsener, even if the nose seems a bit hopdevoid.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet bready malts, grassy hops and a bit of nuttiness. The taste is grassy hops, bready malts and slightl graininess. Assertively hopped and carbonated, medium bodied.

nearbeer (3711) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2012
Draft pint. Golden with a lasting creamy quarter inch of head and some bubbles as advertised. Big nose is dry grass, resin, citrus, crackers and honey. Flavor has the same assertiveness, with the honey and crackers on front and the hops on the long dry finish. Medium body is smooth and well to the dry side. Got better towards the end, and seems like a decent session lager.
