Troegs is a top tier micro-brewery and I enjoy almost all of there beers this is probably the only one out of 7 of their beers that I'd had that I wouldn't highly recommend.
A-Gold, average frothy head
T-grassy, then metalic(yes metalic), then very slight hops
M-smooth on the palate and good fermentation
D-not my favorite. Not really sure when I'd recommend this beer. I'd opt for a Heineken over this but #1 choice for easy drinking summer beer is Harpoon Summer (Kolsch)

On 2014-04-07, I did a side-by-side with Troegs Sunshine Pils, Pilsner-Urquell and Firestone Walker's Pivo Pils.
The Sunshine Pils has a more robust bread flavor than the Pivo Pils, which is dryer, a bit herbal and equally bitter. The Pilsner-Urquell is more like the Sunshine Pils but with even more of a bready taste, a bit less bitterness than the other two, and more of that famous mineral/sulfur presence. The Pivo Pils is the most refined but I miss the more forward bread flavor of the other two. For today's tasting, I'll put Sunshine Pils first, Pilsner Urquell second and Pivo Pils third but this is really just splitting hairs. They're all really good and suit me well.
Tasting notes (and corresponding ratings) from 2013-05-26 are as follows:
A - Clear yellow with a 1.5 finger very white head and decent lacing.
S - Light malt, lemon, flowery hops. Inviting.
T - Much like the smell. Bready malt up front then the citrus, light herbal and white pepper, followed by a surprisingly big hop presence with good bitterness (much like Victory's Prima Pils).
M - Light-medium body and medium+ carbonation. Soft at first then crisply refreshing as it dries.
O - I've had this in year's past but I must say, this is the best it has ever tasted. I think they upped the hop/bitterness level a bit. At 4.5% with a flavor I really enjoy; this will be a summer staple. Well done.
