Chris and John Trogner have been working hard to get Central Pennsylvania on the brewing map. Since 1997, these two Mechanicsburg natives have been handcrafting world-class beers that combine traditional English brewing techniques with eclectic American brewing style. Best known for their Mad Elf, the Sunshine Pils is a classic German style Pilsner and 3 time medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, including a Gold medal in 2012.
ABV: 4.5% IBU’s: 45
Pour: A golden hue, very clear and clean looking with lots of carbonation.
Head: A thin white head forms and disappears quickly, leaving lacing around the glass.
Nose: Notes of wheat and malt with very light fruit notes. Green apples and maybe a little lemon too.
Plate: Light bodied and airy. Very easy drink with just hints of wheat and a clean crisp finish.
Overall: A solid Pilsner, light and easy to drink while still having flavor behind it. Try it for yourself and see why this has been a flagship in Troegs line up for years. This would play nice with bratwurst, cheddar cheese or lemon short bread with fresh fruit.
