September 9th, 2011 - Green Flash’s cover of the Bohemian Pilsner is a hopped up, souped up take on a classic style. I had this sample from the taster room, and it made for a great opening round in a fun evening of beer tasting in Green Flash’s capacious brewing facility. Like most other pilasters, it pours with a generous and enveloping ashen white head, and perfumes the top of the glass with a dry pilsner malt scent. The flavor is anything but traditional - lots of pilsner malts offers a deep, rich flavor that the style sometimes skimps on. I also like that I can’t taste any of the corniness I often detect in pilsners. However, like many other beers in this vein, where the Fizzy Yellow Beer offers a wonderful alternative to adjunct beers or any of the macro selections, it is still best enjoyed while paired with either a big, bold meal or a hot day. By itself, the Fizzy Yellow Beer is not especially engaging. A sampler size was enough to whet my palate, and motivate me to move onto greener, or browner, pastures along the Green Flash’s line of offerings.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 On tap at the brewery, decent pils, not my favorite but i’m not a huge fan of the style. Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
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. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Clear yellow pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of grainy malts, yeastiness and floral hopiness. Flavor is crisp and clean with some backing bready sweetness and floral hopiness. Clean quick ending and medium light bodied. I can get down with this. jbruner (5285) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours a pale yellow on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of pilsener, munich, and shitty corn malts. Taste follows, slightly dry finish. Decent for the style, but I hate pilseners.

From a tap, looks like water with a hint of yellow,clear, i really do not care for this beer even if it is for a good cause. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
On tap from a keg labeled "East Village Pilsner". Clear yellow color. Good foamy big white head, leaves good lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Not as fizzy as the name might lead you to believe, definitely nothing like the macros, actually kind of a nice texture. Medium body, more dry texture. Aroma is bready and lagery. Not over-hopped, pretty clean aroma, light bitter, hint of skunk, light metal. Pretty drinkable and inoffensive overall, that’s the best I think I can hope for from fizzy yellow beer. sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2012

On tap at Birch and Barley. Pours a bit of a deep gold with some spitty, white head. Nose is nice, yeasty, bready, some citrus punching through, grass. Flavor was the same, grassy, meyer lemon, white bread crust, yeasty dough. Medium bodied, clean dry finish. Very nice.
