COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Grainy and floral, grass, dandelion, and lillies on the nose. Clear yellow, medium sticky head. Flavor is lightly sweet, slightly vegetal, tinny. Grass is dominant, but lesser floral notes remain. Alcohol is fairly evident. I may be being too hard on pilsners lately, but this pilsner, while enjoyable, was lacking a certain clean quality I look for in this style.

unclemattie (4169) - Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2012
22oz bottle. GreenLife, Asheville. Golden yellow pour, with creamy white foam. Aroma of straw\hay, hearty malt scent. Flavor of cereal along with some grassy notes. Flavor is dominated by the rich pale malt character. Finishes with a bold grassy hop that leaves an herbal flavor in the end, and a touch of white pepper tingle. A very nice, bold, Pilsner, full flavored. Heavier bodied for the style. (3433)

Bottle. Golden colored with a white head. The scent is mild, consisting of cereal, grain, and grass. The flavors are a tad sweet and heavy (for a Pilsner) initially; malt, hay, cereal grain, corn, with some bitter herbal hops eventually creeping in there. It could stand to be a touch more dry and crisp on the palate. At first I thought this was a bit underwhelming but it did grow on me. Pretty good.

maxwelldeux (3601) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours an extremely clear and light golden color with a fairly large head. Easy drink that’ goes down very smoothly. Not a lot of taste, though.

tkrjukoff (4053) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2012
Tap at the brew pub. Pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, hoppy, grassy and a bit sweet. Flavor is clean pilsner, malty, slightly sweet, has nice fruity touch and is quite well bitter with a touch of tea at the end. Finishes bitter and a bit fruity sweet.

IrishBoy (3825) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bomber from Ross. Nose is light amounts of caramel and hints of grassy hops. Clear orange yellow with a medium yellow head. Flavor is moderate bitterness with some slight sweetness and caramel. Would be a decent session beer at 5.3%.

sherm1016 (1140) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2012
22oz bottle received in trade from ASUBeer. Thanks! Pours a bright, clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is bready, malty. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malt, bready, corn, spicy, light hoppy bitterness, with a clean, bitter finish that lingers a while. A nice pilsner.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. The grainy bouquet offers both pale malts and honey. Full-bodied and creamy with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and bittersweet. Tannic lupulin and honey malt are predominant. Finishes bittersweet and then dry. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
