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.

From notes. Tasted on 5/17/13 on draft at Three Crow. Pours clear light yellow with an average white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is light bread malt with tons of spicy, peppery hops, very clean and fresh. The flavor is fairly aggressively hopped for a pilsener, very fresh, crisp, and plenty of spicy bitter hops. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a long spicy, bitter hops finish.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Green Flash ][ $1 ][ Taster ][ 11.22.14 ]
>> Clear straw pour, good white foam, weak retention. Nose is lemon and sugar, green apple/acetaldehyde. Taste is sugary, lemon, thicker white biscuit, honey roll, bitter honeydew rind. Grassy hoppy finish. Huh, feels papery. Doesn’t come together super well. Good, but aroma is the low point.

Tap at Buster’s on 28th. Very slightly hazy yellow pour with a white head. Really nice pils - bready with good sharp grassy hops. Lively and dry on the tongue. Good stuff.

Aliased as East Village Pilsner in their local series. Kinda boring in context of their pretty awesome line-up, but not bad. Crisp and light...I was hoping for a little livlier hop note, but the malt kinda carries this one. Just ok."

Hazy deep blond color. Light grassy and hay aroma, dry and simple mouthfeel, with light grassy final. Very ordinary.

On tap at the Forge. Appearance: golden straw color, white head, clear, great lacing. Aroma: rice, light wheat, sweet but light fruit.

Draft. Pours a nice slightly hazy hay. Aroma is grass, bit of white bread, faint citrus. Taste is crisp, grassy, slightly bitter, light floral notes, cracker. Incredibly drinkable, pretty refreshing. Great American example of the style.

northropfrye (2303) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
On tap at Brick and Barley, Grand Forks. A very good pilsner. Looks pretty average, pale golden yellow with white head. But has a nice bitter hoppiness to it which makes it a true pilsner rather than the crap masquerading as "pilsner". Not bad.

A really nice pils. Great toasted wheat aromas and flavors with a wonderful hoppy bite that lingers.
