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.

Although the aroma had a nice citrus and floral hop character, the taste was too sweet.(I see I’m not the only one that noticed that) I was looking for some peppery saaz.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a very thick white head. Hoppy and citrucy aroma that was reminiscent of a good IPA. Initial taste was mainly hops and a good blend of citrus and sweet. I’d swear this tasted more like an IPA than a pilsner.

Sparkling golden in color. A vigorous pour produced a nice white head that lasted for a long time. Slight citrus notes in the nose. A bit hoppier than most pilsners I have had, but it added points for me.

Great looking pils. Sweet hop taste with a pine hop finish. Very well brewed.

Pours well, gorgeous straw color, odd aroma though. Tastes good and the aftertaste is even better.

HighlanderOne (983) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Unusual - not your average pilsener. Very light in appearance, slight hop smell, and a unique, almost sweet hop flavor. Kind of a hybrid pilsener/summer beer.

Sample draft at N. Third. Too sweet for me - prefer a drier and hoppier pils. Moved on to a Paulaner.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
Just tried the new 2004 vintage at the Beer Yard Troegs tasting in Wayne, PA. Very deep canary-yellow color, with medium head. Good aroma of citrus, hops, and slight yeast. This one is much hoppier than most pilsens, and finishes suoer smooth, crisp, hoppy, and citrusy. Hall of Famer. Right up there with Victory Prima pils and Lancaster pils as far as I'm concerned.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 9, 2004
Cloudy yellow body. Medium ivory-white head, good head. Lots of carbonation. Smells of lemony hops and sugary malt. Taste is sweet, bright and hoppy. Sweet cake spices too on palate. Aftertaste is mild hops.
