4.25/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Bright yellow with a pure white two finger head that fades quickly and leaves behind a slight lacing.

S- A light hoppy aroma along with some sweetness. Its profile reminds me of a fresh crisp beer.

T- I love the character of this beer. The hop bitterness is pronounced throughout the entire sip, but its not overpowering, and fades nicely. There is also a hint of a very light sweet and malty flavor.

M- A very light and low carbonated mouthfeel.

D- Highly drinkable. Could easily kill a six-pack every summer night.

This is one of my favorite warm weather beers with character, if not my favorite. The hop character of this beer is excellent. It is highly drinkable. Victory Prima Pils definitely has more hop character but can be over powering after a few. Sunshine Pils is a lighter version of Prima Pils, perfect for late spring or summer night. I remember having this for the first time at a local beach themed bar on a hot summer of night, I fell in love instantly after the first sip.

Serving type: on-tap
