COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Troegs Sunshine Pils is hand-crafted in our small brewery using only malted barley, noble hops and bottom-fermenting yeast. This pilsner delivers a refreshing hop bitterness and a zesty, vibrant finish.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial, from 12 oz bottle. Very clear, pale yellow-green, with a lasting dollop of tiny foam...lemon-butterscotch (diacetyl? yes) nose isn’t overwhelming bad, just boring...fairly crisp, sweet honey-touched, with a lively mouthfeel, but the malt isn’t full enough and the grassy character is lacking. Wow, I’m the lowball on this one...but I gotta call it.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Clear lightly carbonated golden. Gentle cover of white foam lasts on top of the beer. Highly floral hops hugs bright grainy, toasty malt. Faint diacetyl notes are a good match to the tea-like herbal undertones, reminiscent of dandelions and lemon. Grassy, floral and citrusy palate. Cuts short with a firm bite of bitterness that refreshes the palate a lot. Intense dry lemon character. Smooth palate, but perhaps a touch too little carbonation. Medium bodied. Good.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2005
The Lure:
Herbal hoppiness and light straw combine for an interestingly attractive aroma. If it weren’t filtered, this would probably be much more of a countryside.

The Festivities:
Citrus drops over crushed grain. Lingering grassy hoppiness dominates the German-like pils malts. Simple and well-done, an aptly named pils.

Transcendence:
Sunflower fields are fun to watch.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Slight hops in the nose and taste, but hops adds more to the bitterness than to the nose or taste. Bitterness in turn takes a little away from the summer nature of this brew, though a little honey does sweeten it out. Overall, a mildly delicious pilsner and for a hoppy pils not anywhere on par with PrimaPils!

A slightly hoppy pilsner (is there such a thing?) I’m not a big pilsner fan, but this one does it for me.

This is an excellent summer pilsner, light and refreshing, good hoppy taste, nice biiter toungue feeling with a sweet dry finish, Been a big fan of Troegs for a while and this beer is no exception to the great lineup of beers from this Harrisburg Brewery

Sammy (8551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
lightly lemony citric fruity but bitter and grassy and moldy and herbal tasting. Grassy aroma, golden colour and bit of head. Sweetness, light bodied.

From a growler picked up from the brewery April 9th, the first week Troeg’s started filling growlers... Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a thick snow-white head. Smell is grassy malt, fresh mowed grass, some light citrus and just a hint of bitter hops. Not very bitter, in fact I had expected just a bit more of a hop bite from this pilsener. No matter, it is crisp and tastes of light grassy malt. Better malt profile than you would expect. Grapefruit and lightly fruity in the finish. Not too fizzy. Well balanced. A great job on a style that is pretty easy to screw up.
