"Torpedo Pilsner is a hop-forward take on the crisp classic lager. We and the folks at Firestone Walker share a passion for New Zealand hop varietals, so we loaded our legendary Hop Torpedo with southern hemisphere hops for a fruity, floral twist on the pilsner style."
"Torpedo Pilsner ditches the traditional German “noble” hops and heads south of the equator for inspiration. With a traditional golden malt body, this “kiwi” pils features intense fruity and floral New Zealand-grown Motueka and Southern Cross hops, making this an alternate and delicious take on the classic pilsner."
My take on this beer is; that it has a pale wheat coloring and good carbonation with a great head when it is initially poured out of the bottle. I would even go so far as to say that it is frothy. This is a hoppy beer that feels thin and crisp and it nips the sides of the tongue as you drink it. It reminds me of the classic lager somewhat but with enough of a difference to make it interesting. Classic lagers don't tend to be my favorite beers, I will drink them if offered but typically won't buy them myself. This is a better version in my opinion, and of course it is a pilsner after all. It is not however the best beer in this 12 pack, that being said it is definitely a worthy addition. My overall impression of this beer is that it was a good beer and if I purchased this 12 pack again I would not hesitate to drink it. This beer also had a respectable ABV of 5.2%, so it has a little more kick than your average beers. This 12 pack was $30 at Lewisburg Spirits and Wine. I still say though if you average it out it is still cheaper than going to the local pub. Good work as usual Sierra Nevada and Firestone Walker! Thanks for a memorable 12 pack of killer beers!
