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.

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.

Lemony and sweet not expected for a pilsner beer. Troegs is a superior beer company. Not a big Pilsner fan but this again is very very good.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2004
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.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2004
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.

hopnpop (69) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Pours well, gorgeous straw color, odd aroma though. Tastes good and the aftertaste is even better.

HighlanderOne (1047) - 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.
