Sunshine Pils by Troegs Brewing Company

Hot enough out there for you today?  And to think I just got back inside after mowing the front lawn…I feel like I lost 10 pounds from sweat alone.  Lets see what is on tap for tonight…shall we?

Beer #226 is Sunshine Pils by Troegs Brewing Company.  Troegs, one of favorite craft brewers, hails from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  This German Pilsner has an ABV of 5.30%

Well lookee here, I actually have a Troegs Sunshine Pilsner pint glass for the pour.  The color of this brew was a clear pale yellow, maybe gold, with just the tiniest white ring of a head.  Try as I might with deep sniff after deep sniff…I didn’t get anything in the nose.  I swirled and agitated the beer to no end and only before I was about to give up did I get an very, very faint aroma of grass.  I gave it a taste, it was grainy and sort of bread like.  It had just a hint of a lemon peel like taste and bitterness near the back end.  It had a light body, was kind of crisp and had a ton of carbonation.

In a word…disappointing.  I don’t think I will ever be a fan of Pilsners and this did nothing to change that.  Now to go find me a Hopback Amber or maybe see if I have any Nugget Nectar left.  Ah well…they can’t all be fit for a King.
