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.

A: The pour is a lightly hazed golden color with a big white head. S: Like many good lagers, this one starts off with a sweet bread note and a touch of hops. The hops are floral and earthy with just a mild grass note. A bit of lager yeast and biscuit malts, perhaps a light adjunct note. T: Unfortunately, not quite as good of a flavor. It features a mild bitterness as well as some straw and grass. There is a light fruitiness of esters as well as some actual yeast. The base is sweet bread, but it lacks the biscuit quality of the nose. M: Light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: It’s too bad this didn’t taste quite as good as it smelled. Overall, though, a pretty decent beer.

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.
