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.

Draft. Gold. Big white head. Soft hop nose. Big hop front and middle. Pepper. Sweetish aftertaste. Very nice.

Cloudy golden color. Chalk white head. Very grassy, huge hoppy nose. Massive grassy hop attack in the mouth. Full on hop assault and one of the hoppiest palates I’ve come across. A touch of diacetyl, that somehow adds to this beer! Bitterness is unfathomable to any regular drinker of yellow fizzy beer. IBU stands for I Beat U with hops sucker. This is a Bohemian Pils on ’roids. Marion Jones drinks this shit everyday I am sure!

I love that this beer is a dig on Greg, the owner of Stone. Don’t get me wrong, I love Stone beers (well, a lot of them anyway), but I am not into the whole Arrogant Bastard, gargoil devil schtick. It’s a pilsner and a pretty darn good one, especially for SoCal where everyone is trying to make them bigger and heavier. I put it a notch above Mama’s Lillte Yella Pils from Oskar Blues and a healthy notch below Prima Pils from Victory.

Hazy yellow-orange hue, very thin white ring of foam. Nose is spices, pale malt, grass. Flavor is pale and toast malts with a big bitterness amped by the carbonation, grassy hop flavor and high bitterness, finishes dry. Light body, high carbonation, slick texture. A flavor packed Pilsner, just outside the session abv range, still quite drinkable and a nice variation on the style.

On tap at Growler Guys CDA. Pours clear golden with a thick white pillowy head with great retention and sudsy lace. Aroma is light wet hayfield, floral, wheat cracker. Taste is pleasantly bitter, a bit grainy. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Good pils.
