Sunshine Pils is a hazy light yellow liquid wiht a fine head of small white bubbles and a lively body. bubbles rise constantly through it. Nose is crisp hops and maybe just a slight metallic hint. Taste is a light citrus with a defined hop presence. Finishes clean. body is lively and light. Refreshing beer.

12 oz. Bottle from craft 12 pack by distributer. Pils usually do not have much aroma but the back end is very nice. Drinkable pils indeed.

Transfer from BA review on 7-14-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden-yellow color with a big fizzy white head of 3 fingers. The head fades relatively quickly initially but slows in its receding as it gets smaller. After about 5 min. it is nearly completely gone leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is a combination of a grainy and bready smell mixed with a lemon citrus. With these aromas is a light sweetness of a grape and some pear. There are also some light grassy and herbal hop smells giving it a clean aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and malty taste that has a small amount of orange sweetness. The sweetness is light and fades fast producing a crisper taste overall. The drying of the taste is joined by some lemon in the middle and some grassy flavors more toward the end. At the finish there is a dry and crisp lightly hoped and clean taste left on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is very light and thin with a carbonation level that is slightly above normal. Both are good for the style and make for a refreshing feel overall. Overall-Crisp, refreshing, light and very easy drinking. This is a great summer day brew.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark bubbly yellow with a white head and lacing in the glass, aroma has some grass and lemon on the nose, flavor has a grassy front end with a finish that isn’t all that pleasant, kind of muddled, meh.

TheJester (1883) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at Skewed Brewing. White gold with a small white head. I get the pilsner malt in the nose, but no noble hops. And there is an odd, sweet citrus note. Almost like a wit. It’s there in the flavour as well. The finish doesn’t have the typical dryness. Nice beer, but an odd pilsner.

Clear straw with a big foamy head. Aroma sweet and bready, hint of flower hops. Taste clean and bready, with a hint of bitterness. Just a simple enjoyable pils

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.

12oz can. Wow, can’t believe that I haven’t raked this one before. Pours a very pale straw color with a larger pure white head that lasts. Aromas of citrus and skunky (noble) type hops. Taste is semi dry and very lightly bitter. Not a huge amount of hops used here. Very fittingly classified as a pils, as anything more would be a stretch. Kind of creamy, kind of spritzey but no adjuncts detected. High carb, low boost, low hops. What the fuck do you expect. A drinkable beer that is best suited for duct taping a 12 pack to your riding lawn mower at 8am and just cutting the grass with reckless abandon.
