Bottle. Wow. Wow, wow, wow. Aroma of dank, leafy, eucalyptus-like hops, lemon, light berries, hay, fresh cut grass, fresh cut thyme, all sorts of herbs and grains, a touch of sweet, light cake maltiness sneaks out behind all the grains. Flavor has unbelievable biscuit, bread, and most notably angel food cake malt with more dank hops, more grass and herbs, the fruitiness blossoming into a champagne character. This could be my new water. Please, Troegs, screw Sunshine Pils, make more of this one! Please! Awesome, awesome, awesome. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Aroma is huge on some citrus (but not C hops) and a big floral note. pours golden with a slight haze, and a pillowy head that laces nicely. flavor is softly malty, with lots of crisp bitterness, and a floral flavor, as well as a citus the is reminisent of mandarin oranges and other citrus. body is medium-lean, and dangerously drinkable. Awesome pils, I could probably drink one of these everyday. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Thanks to Dim for another in the scratch series. I poured this one into my new Prima Pils glass, it produced a fingers worth of white head that lasts. The body of the brew was a slightly hazy pale yellow.
The aroma was a nice bready grassy and lemony hops, it was right on target for the style in my book.
The flavors of light refreshing citrus just bounce around my tongue, along with a summer grassy taste. You know when you were a kid and stuck a piece of grass on you mouth like a farmer. Nice and light in the mouth with great carbonation
I must say this is perhaps one of the easiest drinking brews I have had in a while. I could suck back quite a few of these and find it an enjoyable experience. This is one of the better scratch brew I have had great job Tröegs biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2009
My mom was holding a 6 of this since it came out for me. Very tasty pils, very creamy in the mouth and delicious. I guess this was more like a Czech pils? Either way, big thumbs up. GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of sholland119 poured into a pilsener glass.
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with tons of bubbles streaming to the top and hedding a smallish white head that hangs on as a cap and leaves spotty lacing.
The aroma is a little sweet for the style with a bit of honey sweetness on top of the toasted grains with hints of lemon and plenty of bready dough in the nose. Hints of light fruit sweetness in there too.
The taste has a little bit more lemon up front and has a definite toasted malt presence for the back but with some honey sweetness.
Mouthfeel is very creamy and smoother than most pilseners with soft carbonation.
Another solid pilsener from PA and one of the best I’ve had in the style recently. Highly recommended.

Bottle acquired in a trade with machfive55, a huge thanks to Rich for getting me these Scratch beers. Served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours a clear light gold topped by a nice lasting head of finely packed little bubbles. Smells of honey, lemon, and cereal. Has a clean crisp flavor that is lightly sweet with hints of grass and honey. Very nice spiderweb-like lacing. Finishes a tad weak but that is the only real flaw I can find. This might be my favorite Scratch beer so far. kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2009
12oz bottle, from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Pours hazy golden, with a medium sized white head. Aroma of citrus, lemongrass, and grain. Crisp floral hop flavor is nicely balanced with bready malt, grass, pine and honey. Citrus and floral hop finish. Nice Pils. BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2009

Nice golden/slightly unfiltered look to this one with a pleasant aroma of pils and floral hops. Flavor is well hopped with some biscuit and dry yeastiness. Nice pils.
