In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Tröegs Brewing Company Sunshine Pils

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.”
