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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Yellowish straw, thin to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Dank grassy nose, a little musty straw/hay.   Soft dry straw/hay on the tongue.   Could stand to have a touch more sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not terribly crisp, but it is clean.   Lingering straw and hay.   Very much middle of the road.   Wished it were a bit sharper.   Average.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
651mL from Whole Foods Bend, OR. Pours a clear straw. Thick, sheets of lacing. Nose is heavier biscuit is thick marmalade, chamomile, clover honey, freshly cut grass. bright tangerine/grapefruit. Taste is dry, hoppy, grassy, thicker honey and biscuit balance. Longer grassy hop finish with thicker honey and biscuit malt to balance. Seems like a solid MrChopin and 3fourths style pilsner that gets the thumbs up from a big pilsner lover.
