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 is an excellent summer pilsner, light and refreshing, good hoppy taste, nice biiter toungue feeling with a sweet dry finish, Been a big fan of Troegs for a while and this beer is no exception to the great lineup of beers from this Harrisburg Brewery

Excellant Czech pilsner style. Crisp, light, full flavor. Great for a hot summer day.

Pours clear yellow with a small soapy white head. Smells crisp, lightly spicy, hints of grain. Taste is clean, light bitterness, hint of earthiness. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Tröegs Sunshine Pils finishes with a crisp cleanness.

It’s a great beer! (He agrees). I sense some kind of Mexicano with fruity lime and other citrus. I like the aroma, especially. It looks golden, but has a heavy long-lasting flavor.

Pale yellow with foamy white lasting head; aroma is sweet yet sharpgraina be hops notes true pils aroma; Flava is truly pils grain hops with some slight sweetness dissipating into a dry hoppy crisp finish; quenching feel as it is light in body and fizzy

Hops are very apparent, very nice light yellow color. Does not have the hop punch of the Prima Pils from Victory but the Sunshine is a very nice Pilsner with American IPA level hops. Very slight metallic aftertaste with nice maltiness.

Marvelous thistle, sweet grapefruit, and honey aroma. Very pale yellow color, medium snow white head, coats the glass fairly well. Hoppy flavor ringed with honey, great balance and strength. Rose petal finish. Easily leaves a smile on my face. Mmmmmm beer!

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Pilsener glass. Appearance: Its body bright golden color with some cool sparkling carbonation. The head is small, about one finger thick, bright white in color and slowly fades down to a small slick ring of lace. Smell: There is a full bouquet of mostly floral/spicy hops with light pale malt and just a slight hint of sulfur. Taste/Mouth: The flavor is very crisp and clean with a solid medium body. Hop flavor is bright, floral, and clean with a pleasing level of bitterness. Just under the hops there is a modest level of crisp, dry, and pale white bready malt. The finish is quick, dry and fairly clean with some light hop bitterness. Its carbonation is quite active which gives it a lively and refreshing texture. Notes: This is a great refreshing beer with excellent Pilsner Flavor.

pours nicely with big upfront hoppy aroma as a pilsner should, I’m guessing czech hops. subtle bitterness and hints of caramel malt. very good pilsner.

I discovered this beer while passing through Harrisburg. Didn’t know they brewed a Pils, but I’m glad I tried it. Very clear(almost too), straw colored, nice hop flavor with soft maltiness. Finished a little dry with good bitterness.
