This was a refreshing pilsner. It was different from a lot of pilsners I have tried, which is a good thing. Foothills is a great beer maker. They have a good variety of styles, and the Torch goes well with their lineup. This beer complimented my dinner well. I had a great burger, and homemade chips.
Serving type: on-tap

Brown bottle into a 14 oz. pilsner glass.
A: Slight haze to the dull straw yellow color. 1.5 finger frothy loosish white head quickly subsides leaving a very nice lace "pattern". Big bubbles!
S: Strong bready/cracker malt smell with a light but noticeable hop background. Cut herbs and crackers. Crisp, snappy and lively.
T: Dry crackery malt hits first with enough crisp herbal hops coming through to keep the beer interesting. Hops almost exactly same in strength as the barley. Well balanced is an understatement. I expect the malt not to be obscured by hops in this style and this is practically perfect, as the 2 compliment each other beautifully.
M: Not much to comment on here, but the carbonation is nice and fine textured on the tongue.
Great finish! Dry hop remnants with still that crackery "snap"plus a slight chewiness.
O: One of my very favorites recently, this is a go-to for me. It may be obvioius that I'm a pilsner guy but this is extraordinary IMO. And when it's on sale for $8/6 (which is pretty frequently here in Durham NC) it's hard for me to choose anything else. I love Torch!
