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.

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

HighlanderOne (1024) - 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 (8054) - 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.

Cloudy yellowish straw color, medium white head. Yeasty lemony and herbal aroma. Wonderful! Almost looks and spells like a witbier actually. No matter. I could sniff this all day. Lemony flavor, clean light palate. Spicy hop finish. Interesting and zesty. Nice one.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Ahhh nothing like kicking back in the middle of January when it is 10 degrees Farenheit outside and drinking a nice Pilsner. Hazy golden body topped by a nice white head that clings to the glass nicely. Floral hoppy aroma with some light citrus. The flavor is more lemony then expected, the hops are more subdued then I prefer for this style. Very crisp finish with lingering bitterness and lemon flavors.

Pleasant, musky ale-like aroma with hints of mown grass. Deep, dark yellow color with a tight quickly dissipating head. Tart, spicy flavor leaning more towards a pale ale. Citrus like notes. Nice bitter hoppiness on the back end. Very decent pils.
