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

Great, damn clean all pilsner aroma. Admittedly, Saaz are mentioned on the label, but they’re clearly well used, even before you sip it. Just so clean. And all the same could be said of the flavor. More spice than expected, but enjoyably. Soft liquid gold appearance. Some residual hardness on the palate. Overall, a damn good pilsner.

spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s, Chapel Hill Ar: Light grassy hop aroma, a bit of light honey. Fairly muted. Ap: Pours a perfectly clear and sparkling straw gold with a 1/2" fizzy head that dissipates immediately. T: Hits on all the right notes. Light malty sweetness up front. Clean, refreshing finish with a nice bitterness, and notes of primarily grass. P: Medium-thin with assertive carbonation. O: Very well-made Pilsner from Foothills.

GTAEgeek (1226) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pale yellow color, with a medium, bubbly, off-white head. Lots of pine and resinous hops in the nose, with some grainy and musty notes and coriander. Very bitter for a pilsener, with some coarse, herbal sweetness. Medium body, very astringent, and crisp. Long, bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is too strong and too hop forward for a good pils. This would be okay, but the aroma is brash and the aftertaste is unpleasant.

Darwenus (552) - Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
A pleasant enough looking beer. Average head, bright yellow body. The aroma has that cooked cabbage quality that I associate with certain hops, and someday I hope to be able to identify the hops in question by name. Very slight, malty taste up front with a little hop in the finish. Overall, I think "slight" is exactly the word for this beverage.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from CBX. Super bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was bready, slightly spicy noble hop character. Nice. Flavors were so fresh and clean, spicy, noble hops, bready malt. Perfect, smooth bitter finish. Slightly sweet. Plus carbonation, light yet slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Great pils.

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
Aromas of bread and grassy, noble hops. Clear gold with a mostly fading, white head. Dry, bready, and with well-balanced bitterness. Light bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean, bready finish.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2013
From tap. Golden in color with nice head. Aroma was interesting with a spicy hop and earthy aroma. Taste followed with bread, biscuit and light malt. Nice finish. Clean.

Drank from 12oz bottle. Taste almost like a pale ale. Slight hoppyness to it.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Herbal hop aroma. Crystal clear light gold color with fine bubble. Little lacing, no head. Taste is dominated by saaz hops followed by bitterness. A crisp, clean, well done czech pilsner. Would drink again.

Bottle. Looks like your classic beer- clear golden with a pillowy head with decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of cereal and honey with the sweetness cut by a dryness- maybe a hint of a vegetal smell. Flavor is lightly sweet, a touch grainy, then dry. Nice dry/lightly bitter finish, seems well-balanced, fairly high carbonation. A nice lighter beer.
