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 (1228) - Denver, Colorado, USA - 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.

Draft tonight at the GF tap takeover at Bittercreek... Pours clear polished golden with a nice rocky white head.. I would guess Saaz hops and a heavy hand on the flavor and aroma.. bittering is also pretty good... Seems more pale malt than pils malt, but not a big complaint... Nice and clean and a great change of pace from the hop and sour monsters we’ve been enjoying tonight.... I’d happily buy this again, may not be perfectly to style, but still nice when a brewer tries to make a cool lager.

Sampled at AOT Wilmington. Poured a hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of starch, hops, lemon, spice and malt. A bit funky. Well balanced and held its own well among all the hop-infested and fruity bull shits.
