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.

Very slight golden color that retains a good head upon pouring. It offersa light malty aroma which leads to your standard pilsner taste. Nothing overly special whien compared with other beers but a good beer to try.

This pours out a slightly cloudy golden yellow color with an inch of white foam sitting atop. Scant lacing is left around the glass each time this one is sipped. Fresh grassy and citric hops come forth in the aroma with a strong bready malt backbone, a very clean smelling brew. There is a bit of spice to it as well. The taste start off with a malt flavor before giving way to a crisp slightly bitter citric hop flavor on the backside. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and this has excellent drinkability. I could drink these all day very good taste and very refreshing, another great brew from Troegs.

I really enjoyed this Pils. A clear light golden color with a snow white head that laced nicely. Very hoppy aroma for a pils. The body is creamy and not as crisp as a traditional Pils but nice just the same. Flavor is slightly sweet and hoppy. A pleasant surprise!

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Pours a mostly clear golden with minimal white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some grassy, flowery hops. Flavor is light bodied and crisp, but with a robust hoppiness that more than fills the palate. Mouthfeel is dry, sweet, and a bit fruity. Very enjoyable!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2004
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 (6385) - 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.
