Tröegs Sunshine Pils brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.50% This German Pilsner pours out a nice golden amber color with a nice white head. There is also a decent amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. So far this brew has the look of most German Pilsners on the market, not saying that is a bad thing . The smell is rich with mild sweetness, grains and malts. You also pick up on some nice mild hops in the smell as well. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with mild earthy grains and malts. Then you pick up on a nice bite of hops at the end. There is a lot going on in this brew. The body of this German Pilsner is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. I like how smooth this brew goes down. There is a lot flavor to this brew. The mouth feel is Bold, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Tröegs Sunshine Pils a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Tröegs Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this German Pilsner.

Tröegs Sunshine Pils | Tröegs Brewing Company. A canned varient, this was poured into a pint glass, with a three finger thick head, with lateral lacing, and a clear golden body.

Smells like bright, grassy grains and lighter, more delicate hops.

This also tastes like bright, grassy grains and light hops. Greatly refreshing finish.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll choose to rate Tröegs Sunshine Pils | Tröegs Brewing Company with an overall 4.25.

Pours a clear pale straw color with bright white fizzy head
. . . less than one finger. Little lacing. Aroma is light lemongrass. Taste of light malt, grass and a hint of grapefruit. Light bitterness on the tail end. No aftertaste. Very clean and crisp. Moderate-light feel and carbonation.
