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.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.
