I would imagine that drinking bear urine "straight from the tap," as it were, is a god-awful, mind-scaring experience. Drinking Torch Pilsner by Foothills Brewery is not as bad as that. I'd say this is 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 so that I can name them and then grimace. There is very slight, malty taste up front with a little hop in the finish. Mostly this is watery, a little stinky, and not fun to drink. "Slight" is a good word for this.
