Tröegs Brewing Company Sunshine Pils

What the brewers say

“The sun’s role dominates the hops cycle as vines grow before the human eye and budding hops cones reach sticky maturity beneath the sun’s rays. In Sunshine Pils, we combine the refreshing finesse of a Bohemian-style Pilsner with a bright noble hops character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong cotton candy and bubblegum, very sweet, with a strong floral—almost soap-like—note on the nose. Some sweet biscuit malt character and slight orange creamsicle and lemon citrus notes. Low earthy, sulfur hops notes.”

Flavor: “Very sweet up front, but fades to super bitter and is champagne-like on the finish. The same bubblegum and cotton candy tones linger throughout, but are lost in the bitterness at times. Malt almost balances the spicy bitterness of the hops and is slightly sweet.”

Overall: “A decent Pilsner offering, although the malt and hops are somewhat unbalanced. It’s a solid, refreshing German-style Pilsner.”
