Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

3.33/5  rDev -8.3%

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Standard glass
From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $1.67 (I think)
Purchased: July 26, 2014
Consumed: July 26, 2014
Misc.: Appeared to be born on May 30, 2014, but it was tough to read

Poured a golden, pale clear color with1-to-2 fingers of rocky white head, which settled rather quickly. Decent stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top and on the way down.

Smelled sharp Czech pilsner notes, corn, honey, caramel, grass, wheat, peas, green beans and slight butterscotch.

Tasted not quite as what I was expecting and as the smell. Got corn, honey, caramel, grass, wheat, faint butterscotch, buttery malts and maybe some rye.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, earthy finish.

Just an average pilsner.
