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.

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.

average pils in my opinion. a very bright yellow color with a short-lived white head. No real flavor that i picked up until a small charge of hops after taste

Blond body with a medium white head. Aroma is tart and citrusy with some grassy notes. Taste is semi-sweet with orange and lemon blending withmalt and grassy, crisp hops. Nice surprise! Palate is silky smooth with a pleasurable citrus and grassy finish. Nice beer! Very drinkable!

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Pale gold with a decent fluffy head that fades to a thin solid layer. Aroma is tart and grassy. Flavor is of grassy hops with a slight tartness in the finish that may be a very slight skunking of this sample but I am not sure. Finishes clean with a mild slightly tart grassy aftertaste. Nice but not my favorite pils.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2004
This was a really good pilsener. It poured a golden color with a nice white head. The flavor was not overly hoppy, but just balanced enough to make for a really crisp and enjoyable beer. Recommended.

Draft. I don’t usually go for a pils but this is good. Very crisp with a nice hoppiness. Looks and tastes good, definitely a quality pilsner. Worth a try for sure.

Hoppier and sweeter than I expected. Drinakable pilsner on draft. Great pilsner for the summer weather.

TAR (2475) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pale yellow. Sticky, fluffy white head. Zesty hop nose with hints of fresh flowers, perfume, lemon zest, and straw. Scarce, yet sharp, malt presence and slightlty airy underneath. Round body with soft carbonation. Becomes pillowy-fluffy as it breathes. Flavorful balance of sweet pale malt hulls and grassy hops. Feathery malt layers fade into the background as the candied lemon sweetness, honeydew, and juicy hops gather steam and balance the malt sweetness. Hops lose their snappiness but retain their juicy, round, complexity and take on more of a soft bushy earhiness. Finishes moist and less snappy than when it started, yet with lasting lemon zest bitterness and a touch of sweet malts. Extensive dry-hopping yields tasty hop belches. Every aspect of this is remarkably polished. One of the most elegant Pilsners out there.

Light yellow clear in color. Citrus hops. Crisp and clean. Good beer. Smooth palate.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 12 oz bottle. 06.09.04 Pours a radiant, slightly hazed, golden straw. Mammoth, rocky head of pure white. Aroma is typical grassy, grainy, and malty; also a peppery-spicy note to the nose. Flavor and palate are clean, unassuming, and light. Slightly sweet and vegetal, but pepper notes from aroma do not carry into flavor. Crisp bitterness to close the deal. Refreshing. 20100424 - bumping up the score. This really is one of the very best bottled American pilsners. When it’s fresh, the hops are snappy and beautifully done. Just clean, solid, beautiful pils.
