Poured a semi hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, herbal hops, and booze. Taste is pretty standard asa, lots of malt and hops and booze.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Doughy, bready malt smell with knotty hop background. Creamy looking bright amber color, features some slimy lace. Semi-sweet malt taste, bitter in a way that is chalky or stoney. Could be labeled as a ’double red’ IPA, the style that’s malt forward bit still on the bitter side. Thick coating bodied beer, had the feel of coffee with cream. Plus .1 for the awesome can design with a literal fascist pig.

Can. Cloudy amber color, scant edge head. Aroma of pine, flowers. Taste is very bitter pine resin.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
can. pours slightly hazy red with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. fruity caramel, toasted, spicy and doughy malts, grass, strawberry-like hops, warming alcohol, citrus. average to moderate carbonation, medium body - oily but not too heavy, bold spicy-citrusy finish. tad too sweet though. actually enjoyed this caramel-forward brew, maybe because of rye presence and assertive hoppiness.

Daytonbeer (665) - Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours cloudy and red with an off white head and no lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, and cotton candy. Taste of light malts, burnt sugar, and light friut. Enjoyable brew.

Not a fan. Overly malty and unbalanced. A friend and I split a can, and found it chewy, and incredibly average.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
$2.99 16oz can with no bottling date poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Appearance: A super hazy, red-orange brown color. More simply... copper colored. There’s a finger or two of a light brown head. It doesn’t last too long, but bubbles float on top and to the sides of the glass throughout the glass. A lot of sediment at the bottom of the can that I poured into the beer made it even hazier, and some particles started floating around. Smell: I figured this beer was probably dry-hopped, and it turns out that it was. A surprising hop nose on this one. Subtle, sweet, piney... pleasant. Taste/feel: A bit weird for me. The flavor of the beer itself is pretty solid, but it changes dramatically between sips. One moment it’s immensely bitter, and the next it’s super sweet. It changes a lot throughout the same sip, as well -- sweet start, super bitter finish. I like a subtle change to add depth, but this one’s pretty big. A good malty sweetness is generally at the front though, followed by a decent brunt of bitterness, with only a little bit of hoppy flavor. It’s like Finch’s tried to balance this beer, and it just backfired. The label also mentions rye being in this beer -- now that I’ve read that fact, I can sort of taste it. It’s definitely in the background, though. The feel on Fascist Pig is creamy smooth, with a pretty light carbonation, which is good -- a prickly carbonation with this kind of bitterness would be killer. The can says this beer is 72 IBUs, but it tastes more like 100. I like, but don’t like this beer ... I like the name and label of Fascist Pig, and in an ODD way, it somewhat explains the beer. On one hand, I love the way that this beer smells and feels, but on the other, the balance is out of whack and just unusual. I’d definitely drink it again -- it’s interesting, pretty fairly priced, and most importantly, pretty tasty. Strangely compelling would be the best way to describe Fascist Pig.

Unknowledgeable bartender told me this was an amber ale. The taste characteristics immediately indicated that he had led me astray. Should have been that tool who checks every beer on his phone. Pours amber with a slight haze and decent white head. Scent is sugary with a touch of citrus. Flavor is boozy and sweet with a mild bitter finish. A touch overcarbonated for the ABV.

MrBunn (2511) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Can. Pours a murky reddish brown with a thin head and aromas of figgy brown sugar with a little leaf litter and very faint resin. First sip reveals a thick and sugary beer with a decent hop bitterness, but not a lot of direction in either. Brown sugar, dates and figs drive the malt, while the hops profile plays second fiddle with a bit of non-descript bitterness. Stick and sweet, but I am left wanting a bit more direction.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Can. Solid, sturdy pour of furniture-polish red, the head thin but stoic. The aroma gets back to the varnish theme. And although the 8% alcohol is readily apparent here, this is a relatively easy-going drink, with a nice robust-yet-pleasant caramel malt backbone of iron. Well done. (#5207, 8/23/2013)
