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.

Derek881 (1047) - Prague, - SEP 14, 2012
Enjoyed a pint of this beer on tap in San Diego. The beer had a clear solid gold color with a good-sized foamy white head with good retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma was a light mix of sour grainy and earthy notes with subtle bits of yeast, floral, and straw components. The taste was crisp and had a lightly sweet fruit effect with a touch of lemon and a very light grainy bitterness. The body of the beer was light and zesty on the palate with low carbonation, and was a touch watery with a thin and light mouthfeel.

radio_nowhere (1113) - Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Draft at Frisco Taphouse in Columbia, MD served in a pint glass. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma notes of lighter bread/straw malt and sharp pepper/grass hops. Taste adds more bready malt sweetness and spice hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with light earthy/grass finish. Pretty tasty pils, more noble hop forward than average.

The flavor starts with dry malt, bready pils, sulfur, grass, herbs and some spice. The finish has crackers, light fruit, grass and leaves. Great pils.

Marheb (3051) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2015
De la paille et de la citronnelle roulés dans des malts miellés collants. La finale herbacée est bien déposé et l’amertume en harmonie avec la sécheresse.
