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.

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.

On draught at 2014 LagerFest. Clear, fizzy golden color. Aroma is golden corn, light grass, and sweet caramel biscuit. Taste is sweet biscuit, grass, and a touch of spice. Very smooth.

7/11/14. Draft at surf club. Exactly as described. Classic Pilsner pour, look, and nose. A little bit of a hop kick makes this a great session beer with a bit of a hop profile but none of the astringency of most of the session IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...very pale straw with a corpulent white head. Nose...much more hoppy than I expected for a pils, with notes of honey and kiwi skin. Palate...frothy, crisp, and husky with fresh cut hay, jasmine flower and hop crisp. The bitterness is evident throughout and the noble hop character predominates. The finish is clean and honeyed with notes of cut grass.

Pours a fuzzy yellow color with a corn and hay aroma. Taste is simple with a light malt and minor earth flavor. Some remnants of hops in the aftertaste but it dissipated rather quickly. This is a simple easy drinking pilsner that has some farm like flavors.

Type: Draft Glass: 0.5L (16.9 oz.) glass From: Blind Lady Ale House in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $4.00 (with progressive Friday) Purchased: Feb. 21, 2014 Consumed: Feb. 21, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a golden yellow hazy color with three fingers of frothy white head. Lots of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention all the way down. Smelled cereal, sourdough bread, honey, grassy hops, wheat, corn, bubblegum, light citrus and lemon. Tasted similar to the nose, but a bit stronger. Fairly dry malts. Honey, sourdough, bread, grass, corn and faint booziness. Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Semi-abrupt finish. This was a very good pilsner. I’d have it again for sure if I was in the mood.

Crisp and dry pilsener, pale golden with small foamy head. Taste is grain,mild hops. Lingering finish leaves mouth dry.

one of the best American pilsners I’ve had. Haven’t checked to see if my rating reflects it, but this one is pretty nice. Not overly hoppy. It pours very pale with a thin head- so much so that it could be mistaken for a Budweiser at first glance. Fortunately the comparison stops there. Not too far from a true pilsner.

Growler from Whole Foods. Pours a light gold, nice head, very slight head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy, with a bit of grain. Flavor is a match. Sort of a German style pils in the hopping, but has just a bit of lingering sweetness on the finish that is more Czech in nature. Thoroughly enjoyable, love a good pils.

Tap. Nice and mild. Pretty decent. Not my favorite style, but smooth. San Diego super chargers.
