COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We always wanted to make a year-round German-style Pilsner. Both because it tastes great and it’s a favorite of ours. We import bagged German Pilsner malt and manually add 3,300 pounds to each batch because we believe that’s what it takes to make a great German pilsner. We source all Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, which we prize for their mix of floral and “Noble” notes. Then we wait. This beer is unfiltered, so we rely on natural lagering techniques (i.e. long times and cold temperatures) to get this beer as bright as sunshine.

Bottle. A little passed its prime. Straight up pilsner. Nothing special. A little fruity. High carb and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gnoff (8746) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2015
As "Breakside Liquid Sunshine Pilsner" 22 oz.
Bottle on June 26, 2015. From Hillsdale Liqour Store in Portland, Oregon.
Clear pale straw yellow color, huge white head. Bottle keeps pouring head/foam long after opened. Light acidic, malty scent. Malty, light acidic taste. Acidic aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Could pour as slowly as possible into two glasses, still getting only a minute amount of beer in the bottom of the glass, the rest was head build-up. Bottle kept foaming over even though I poured from it as often as possible, until there were less than 25% left in the bottle.
The way the bottle behaves, mixed with the character of the beer, I’d say there is a mild infection in this bottle.
Still taste and smell decent enough.

brokensail (13243) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap @ Breakside. Clear golden pour with white foam. A little sweeter than I’d really care for. Slight citrus and floral hop notes, but really an odd note of white grape, some apple, and bready malts. Pretty sweet tasting and not anywhere near as much hop character as I would have hoped for. Kind of a let down.

drpimento (2482) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Good appearance with lots of lace and a clear, bright gold color. Taste had an odd, out of place fruitiness at first which gave way to more traditional pilsner characteristics. Good body and finish.

Atom (1777) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bomber pours a clear golden/yellow with a large white head. Grainy almost yougurt like aroma, sweet malt, with light grassy hops. Taste of sweet pils malt, bready yeast, lightly fruity, grassy bitter hops hitting on the finish. Nice!

djd07 (6056) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is wheat grass and herbs. Thin mouth, herbs, grass, mineral, decent.

Bottle thanks to GCurlow. Love a good pils. Poured slightly hazy, golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma was grainy, bready malt with some grassy, floral hops. Touch of citrus. Flavors were grainy with some grass and cereal malts. Nice crisp finish, slight bitterness. Good pils.
