3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is clear light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers).
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
A clean, serviceable north German rendition, a la Bitburger....very light and delicate. It falls a bit short on character and charm, but it has no flaws and the nose is attractive.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Clear straw hue with delicate white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is grassy, wildflower honey, cereal, floral, slight peppery, slight sulphur. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice light bitterness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a decent pilsner.

Draft at churchkey. Pours a clear medium gold with a loose white head. Mild grassy crackery nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, crackery mid palate with a light resiny finish. Hoppier and heavier than expected, but in a pleasant way.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub, Seattle
as Breakside Liquid Sunshine Pilsner, 5.3% ABV
Hazy pale blond color with creamy head. Aroma of straws. Dry mouthfeel; some flavor of corn; ordinary bitterness, a bit lemony, with a hint of grass, but without a clear Hallertau hops evidence.
Not what promised.

It’s just okay. I like the flavor, but it’s a little too much for my preference.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Nose brings out grassy hops, grains, and biscuity malt. Flavour is similar, with really nice grassy hops, biscuity malt and grains. Very grassy, fairly hoppy and dry, with very high drinkability. Great stuff.

I enjoy a good crisp and clean Pils but unfortunately this is not it for me. I find it sweet and over hopped almost resembling a common ale at times. I gave this pils a second chance and I Love what Breakside is doing but this one is not for me.
