Bottle from liquor express. Pours light brown with two fingers of white foam. Aroma smells a bit of corn. Taste is fairly bland with a slight hint of malt on the tongue. I was hoping for some hoppiness but it wasn’t there.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at GABF 2011. Yellowish-orange pour. Light hoppy aroma with a lot of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same and treads a thin line between a pale ale and an amber ale. Just ok.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh bottle thanks to Jason & Trip, Thanks! Golden pour with a nice white head. Neat carbonation. A bit of bread and caramel in the otherwise floral and citrus noted aroma. Soft hops right there at the beginning of the taste. Grains moving to a pillow, yes a pillow, of spicy, pine hops. Only at the end does the bitter set in with a final lingering hoppy finish. Soft round mouthfeel with a light to medium body. This is truly the best bottle of this if had. Who says freshness makes no difference...

12oz bottle. Rating #51. Medium golden pour with a slight haze and a pretty big white head and some decent lacing. Very light aroma, a touch of hops and some malt. Flavor is pretty mild although it did have a nice hop bite that came through in the finish. (1573)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Pine Bar in Montgomery. Very light golden anger with a firm head. My initial impression is heavy on the malt. The beer does have a nice creamy consistency and a moderately bitter finish, but this is outside the expected range of an APA. (#4083, 2/26/2010)

Thanks goes out to the guy who looked at the label and thought " i wanna bbq that fuckin naked pig (and not bbq that pig fuckin naked)..", Lou!! .. . Pours a deep tan, with fantastic foam features.. . has a complex mouth for a pale ale- biscuit, light resin, light hoppy syrup, and pig dreams .. .man, i wish i had actually gotten naked for this beer- be one with the pig, oh well- next time .. . I really dig this, a great session and a great beer to come out and give alabama a push into the craft beer scene! .. .
