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. Color: 5 Lovibond;IBU:35

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Sampled from a growler thanks to boboski on 7/2/06: Pours a clear pale golden with a nicely-lacing thin white head. Has a good, fresh Saaz hoppy aroma with a pale malty sweetness. Body is smooth, lightly toasty and well-hopped. Very authentic, fresh and drinkable. One of the best pilsners I’ve had.

bubbleflubber (1896) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Light golden pour, with initial foam, but no retentive head nor lace. Faint sour grains to the nose. Light citrus, lemon zest and dark grains with a bitter finish. This does have a substantial mouthfeel to it, not watery or too thin. Decent brew.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Clear golden color, nice efferrvescence, a good inch and a half of acid white foam. Good head retention and a little bit of lacing. Mild grassy hop aroma. A mild pilsner, but quite drinkable. A drier grainy malt flavor is complimented by a grassy spicy hopping. Tastes very fresh and authentic, though definately on the mild side. Light body, thirst quenching. But ultimately a bit too mild for my preferences.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Slightly floral, slightly fruity malt aroma. Very cool tap handle, but standard gold brew. There were a few off flavors in the mix - some malt liquorish notes, but they were minor and generally it was a smooth ride. No major flaws to the beer. Medium body. On tap, Mellow Mushroom, Blowing Rock, NC.

Golden colored beer with a fairly large white head. Aroma is somewhat grassy. Flavor has some nice spicy hops. Great thirst quenching quality. A good hoppy pils.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2006
on Tap @ FH 6/30/06: Very little white head on a deep golden clear body. I think the sample glasses are not "beer clean" as all the beers I tried did not keep the head. Strong toasty malt aroma w/ a bit of caramel and floral hop in the nose, pretty clean otherwise. Clean, crisp w/ a grainy malt flavor, a bit husky milled grain. Clean flavor overall w/ a dry bitterness at the finish. Some light floral hop flavor throughout into the aftertaste. Highly carbonated w/ a hefty carbonic bite. Lighter body, but not watery. Crisp, refreshing & clean, very enjoyable for a pilsner after a 6 block walk to the brewery!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Poured a clear light yellow color with a medium white head. Malty and grainy aroma with a fair amount of grassy hop. Very long moderately bitter finish with a malty base.

SpringsLicker (3213) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Poured from a growler at kp’s cellar party. Dissipating, but decent white head over a clear gold body. Strong hop aroma. Hoppy, overly bitter for the style with a long bitter finish. The malt never gets a chance here. Good Bohemian Pilsners are favorites of mine and this needs just a bit of tweaking to get it all the way there.

decaturstevo (5337) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2006
From a growler thanks Larry or KP? Not my favorite style of beer. This one had that familiar skunky wet paper smell but with a hint of malt and a tickle of hops? Was a clean clear ggold with a nice white head. The taste was quite the surprise. It had that familiar pils flavor but it actually had some malt coming through and a bit of hops kicker. A clean smooth easy beer to drink. I will track it down and drink 2 back to back and re-rate. Don’t tell anybody I said this but I kinda liked this nugget.
