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 Green Flash. Pours a clear golden with a foamy white head. Aroma of grass, hay, and some light citrus. Thin body with a light mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Bready, grainy, and cracker like malt character with a dry clean finish. No hops to speak of.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Sampled at Blind Lady Ale House; July 2012
The beer has a nice, bright gold color to it and it is topped by a frothy, pale head. Lemony hop, some sweet grain / corn aromatics that mix with an interesting herbal component. The DMS (?) is a bit too much in the nose, and it seems to get in the way of the rest of the aromatics.

Nicely bitter, with a soft, grainy and cracker like malt character. The hop character is quite herbal, a bit floral, and even a bit spicy. The body has some texture to it, enough to make this interesting, it certainly doesn’t come off as being watery at all. The pale malt character is quite nice; there are herbal honey like notes to it, as well as a nice, sweet, chewy pale maltiness.

A fairly nice example of a pils; the only detraction is the touch of corn-character (perhaps a touch of residual DMS), but this really doesn’t detract too much and the hop character, and especially the rest of the pale malt character helps this to recover quite a bit. The texture is also just about perfect, light with just enough malt fullness to keep it balanced.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Grainy malts, some weird diacetyl-like sweetness, and some light floral-ish old hoppy notes. Bad batch? This was pretty bad.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is biscuit, hops, and grass. Taste is very much on the bready side of pilsners. Hops were present, but were more subdued. The body was most excellent. "Twas quite a good pilsner methinks.

JPDurden24 (1626) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Pretty much, its what it states a fizzy yellow pilsner with decent grassy and yeasty flavor. Better than a lot of pilsners, but decent overall.

On tap at Green Flash as East Village Pils. Pours with a crystal clear pale golden hued body with a white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are floral, bready, grainy malt. Some honey notes, medium hops. Pils like malt character. Flavors are grainy, grassy, herbal hops, bready. Dry and extremely clean with a slightly bitter balance. Lively bubbles, dry, crisp and bitter. As it should be; a good pils.
