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.

Bottle. Hazey golden pour with a white head. Hangs out for a while and there is some lacing. Aroma is bready, yeasty. Taste is hoppy, citrusy and it’s nice and crisp on the tongue. I’d drink this any time....it’d make a nice session choice.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Sunshine Pils is aptly named because this does look like liquid sunshine in the glass. It’s a light golden in color, and with the significant haze, the translucence makes the beer look brighter. And the creamy, white cap atop the beer shows solid retention, maintaining a thin layer for the session, and it leaves a fancy-looking foamy ring around the top of the glass. The beer smells bright, citrusy and hoppy, with a mild grain aroma getting some time as well. Flavorwise, the moderately bitter and citrusy hops is the first (and last) thing I notice when I take a sip. In the background, a minimally sweet and lightly grainy maltiness tries to set a nice base, but hops tends to dominate from start to finish. And speaking of finish, this light-bodied beer is clean throughout, and finishes very crisply. Truth in advertising here. This is indeed a crisp, hoppy pilsener, and while it’s not my favorite style of beer and not even my favorite style of pilsener, drinking this beer has been a pleasant experience.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 12 oz bottle. Great looking clear, gold pour into a tulip and holds it’s big bubbled white, head nicely. Aroma is a nice, rich dough with flour and spent grains. Hoppy right away, bitter actually. Lots of grains in a nice mouthful. I cant believe I’m saying this but it’s too hoppy. Wtf kinda HopHead am I? Good stuff though.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 On draft at KClingers <<edited later from bottle>>: Bright yellow with a very thin head. Cookie-malt consistency, silky feel. Little aroma. Sweetly bitter in ther German fashion. Light and refreshing and nicely hopped for an American "yellow beer" --- great summertime beer.

Somewhat of a slight hops aroma, appearance is light golden in color, very clear. Head was average, off white and maintained itself while drinking. Flavor was moderately bitter, you can taste the hops throughout, with medium carbonation. This is what i would consider a moderately good tasting pilsner.

A pretty decent pils. Not as good as my favorite, Victory. Lacks the little bit of that something special that Victory had, but solid nonetheless. Perfect for a nice summer day or night. Very light colored and light taste with a mild amount of hops. A fine overall beer.

Bottle. Had it on a hot summer afternoon, perfect! Nice white head that lasted a good long time, light yellow color. Slightly bitter, malty, I really enjoyed it!

Pours a nice light yellow with a very large amount of fluffy white head. Aroma is very grassy, hayish, crisp and clean. Flavor is very light and fresh with a faint citrus flavor. Overall, this may be my most favorite pilsner to date.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle. Very light golden color, bubbly. Foamy white head diminishes quickly. Very fresh on the nose-- faint citrus (lemon mostly) and hints of grass/outdoors, also some alcohol. Light body, very crisp and clean, slight hop bouquet and lemons in the initial taste. Finishes light and clean. Refreshing.

bottle. I really liked this pils. Crisp, spicy, good looking with a nice puffy head and light golden color. Quenching. I should note that this was a very fresh bottling, < 10 days, and didn’t seem to exhibit some of the low-points I’ve seen in the reviews, but to each his own.
