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 pours a slightly hazy yellow, small white foamy head, good carbonation, with so-so lacing.   Malts and sweet grass on the nose.   Forwardly malty, quite grassy, with a notable cooked vegetable flavor.   Good mouthfeel and body.   Finishes with a slight grainy bitterness.   Not bad, but not my idea of a real good pilsener.

I don’t understand all the high ratings on this one. High carbonation quickly turns to moderate bitterness which turns to a vaguely grapefruity flavor that I don’t care for.

BBB63 (6368) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Bottle: Clear straw hue with a fizzy but lasting head and little lace. The aroma has notes of grassy hops, pale malts, lemongrass, and earthy yeast esters. The taste is crisp and citric, lemony flavor on top of bready and grainy tones. The finish is slightly spicy and lightly bitter. The feel is lively and crisp. Overall a good pilsner a worthy of another. Thanks Doclock.

Bottled, first beer from my shipment from DocLock! This may not be the right time to rate this, after my writing down my impressions of St. Pauli Girl. But here goes. Pours very light straw color, with a nice foamy head. Chewy, grainy malt taste gives this much more oomph than any major beer in this style. I could not find the expected Saaz hop profile this needs, though. There are some ticklish hops down the back of my throat, but just not quite what I’d have thought to find.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Re-rate, from last of the six pack. Hazed liquid this time. Smells similar, but in a plain lager way. Fell is thin and flavors start to get watery. Now a cross between a german pils and any of many pale lagers. Bright straw color with a thick dense head of ultra white bubbles. Light sweet malt coupled with a lightly floral/herbal noble hops nose. Perhaps a touch too sweet. Nice sweet malt profile up front. Lightly thin in the middle. Bitterness comes in the finish to keep things in czech. Hint of alcohol and pale malt in the linger. A refreshing brew. A cross between a classic german pils and an pre pro lager. Thanks DocLock.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Pours a very pale golden with a big frothy white head. Lightly grassy herbal aroma. Taste is crisp, refreshing with that pleasant grainy pils malt character and then lemony herbal noble hops. Moderate bitterness, not super-assertive. Mouthfeel is medium and drinkable with lively carbonation. Good head retention and lacing.

I am not really a Pils man, but this was good. Traditional look, but a much batter brew then ten your typical pils. Troegs is a name to trust

Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Fruity, spicy hop aroma, fresh, lemony and slightly minty with some lightly buttery, pale, doughy, sweet maltiness underneath. Light golden color, slightly cloudy, with a white, creamy, lasting head and copious amounts of lacing. Hoppy, leafy, citric and moderately bitter throughout, with a twinge of sweetness emerging late. Very juicy and refreshing, plenty of hop resins here. Body is light-medium, mouthfeel is appropriately effervescent for the style. Quite summery and drinkable, appealing flavor profile. Excellent Pils. Cheers, Bill!

This pilsener pours with a pale golden body topped by a thick, foamy, lasting white head with a good amount of lacing. The flavor is sweet, flowery and slightly yeasty with slight fruity notes and a nice maltiness. The flavor is sweet and flowery yet bitter and woody yet well balanced with a touch of fruit. Lightk, crisp, smooth and slightly tingly.
