Torch Pilsner
A well structured, Czech-style pilsner. Torch is strong in alcohol with a rich, full finish. Good mouth feel and well-balanced Czech Saaz hops ensure that Torch is not your typical pilsner.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a nice fluffy head; good retention and a nice lacing pattern

Smell: Shortbread malt, with hints of lemon, grass and mineral tones

Taste: Like it smells, with the shortbread arriving first, followed by the grassy hops; subtle hints of lemon and mineral tones

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nicely hopped, but a little sweeter than I would otherwise expect; nevertheless, I really enjoy this beer and have had it many times as it is often on the menu at local restaurants - surprised I haven't rated it before

12oz bottle poured into a pint

A: Clear, pale straw. Nice head leaves behind an even cap and modest lacing.

S: Big citrus hops. Some grass. Almost smells like a cider

T: Lots of honey and a touch of sweet biscuity malt. Slight green bitterness gives way to a clean finish. More honey in the aftertaste. A little corn.

M: Lots of bubbles. Pleasing but almost too much

O: Very drinkable pilsner.
