A- Like a macro lager. Clear, golden yellow. Typical looking for a beer.
S- Floral hops and musty grains! Not a clean smell, if you know what I mean. Very different for a lager, even a German Pils.
T- The hops imparts a spicy quality to the beer. Moderately bitter finish. Carbonation is very tingly on the tongue.
M- Almost a medium mouth feel. But overall this is an easy drinking beer. The bitterness is a bit harsh
This was an OK beer, Nothing special. I don't think I'll buy this beer again. It's a little bitter, and not refreshing enough for me to warrant keeping this around.

Had this on tap in a pint glass at Coopers in Greensboro.
A - Looks like most pilsners. Bright yellow, nice 2 finger head with moderate retention and some lace.
S - Not much here. Bready malt, slight biscuit aromas, and if I strain, an actual hop presence.
T - More like a macro lager or all malt lager. Grainy, one dimensional malt comes with a smidge of cheesy/skunky hops. Metallic aftertaste.
M - Light and crisp, on par with a good pils.
D - This wasn't a horrible brew to drink, but if I wanted something more I'd pick a German pils or an APWA; if I wanted something less I'd opt for a Brooklyn Lager or even PBR. Not particularly suited to etiher crowd.

Torch is my favorite of the regular rotation at Foothills, but that is more a result of my taste than its. I love a great pilsner and can make do with an average one. Unfortunately, Torch is pretty average, but it is not bad by any means...just average. The individual parts of the beer all are fine, but seem to add up to less than the sum, making the beer less smooth and drinkable than it should be.
