Case purchased today at Westy's in Camp Hill, PA

Appearance - clear golden body; 3-finger thick white head to open with good retention; very good lacing

Smell - a smell of summer; grainy and a bit hoppy/metallic; great nose of a pilsener

Taste - big on grains; somewhat spicy; level of hops doesn't bowl me over but I wouldn't expect this from a pilsener; great grainy, hoppy, slightly lemony close; overall it's a nicely flavor-packed pilsener

Mouthfeel - zesty carbonation combos nicely with the flavor pop for an opener; medium moves to light; reasonably dry close

Drinkability - Sha-pow! Extremely quaffable

What an excellent summer brew. Vacation beacons; thus my ratings may be a bit skewed but if its leading to summer and the beer takes the mind there and its deemed by the tongue and palate as highly acceptable for sessioning in the heights of summer, I'd say Troegs' intention and resultant product are 'spot on'. A sixer of Sunshine Pils may last until the trip to OBX in 3 weeks.
