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.

on tap at uno’s. Slightly better than the previous beer (Spellbound PA).

Hey, got a free pint glass with it. Shared with wife.

On tap at Citizens Bank Park.

20 ounce plastic cup in the 90 degree heat is not a great combination, but this did fine washing down some Bulls BBQ Pulled Pork.

Hot day, friends over for pool party. Good way to start. Refreshing.

Appearance - clear golden/straw color with eggshell white head

Smell - grains, biscuit, fresh cut grass

Taste - biscuit, pale malts, slightest of corn sweetness on the back

Mouthfeel - lighter end of medium bodied, medium plus carbonation, crisp and clean upfront, well hopped and slightly sweet on the back end, dry finish

Overall - good American rendition of a Pils. Worthy of a re-visit. I want to say this is the best U.S. version of a Pils that I can remember consuming

Price Point - $2.29/12 oz can

I poured this into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice golden clear yellow color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that must have maintained itself for a good full one and a half minutes before it started to slightly die at a decent pace. The smell had the German pilsner malts coming through hard up front and then gently allowing a nice light spiciness coming through as it warmed a bit. The taste was sweet and let the light spiciness come back again. There was no aftertaste. On the palate, it sat pretty light and had a great sessionable quality running about it. The carbonation is there but not overbearing. Overall, this is just another great beer made by an exceptional brewery.
