In the summer of 1858, Main Street in Kansas City was overrun by hogs. The city passed a "Hog Law" authorizing the city’s marshall to catch any of the porkers found roaming in the streets and throw them in a "Hog Pound". Hundreds of swine were apprehended and there owners had to pay fines for their release. A traditional English style Brown Ale, Hog Pound is a slightly sweet and mildly hopped with a smooth , pleasent flavor reminiscent of the Great Brown Ales from England.

Average brown ale at best. Aromas were a faint roasted malt. Brown color that appeared light. Palate was somewhat watery with a little smoothness and average carbonation. Flavors of roasted malts and some earth-like grains. I didn’t detect the normal nuttiness. Hops were mild. Drinkable and light.

Too thin & watery for a brown! Not much complexion or taste. I’m not a fan! Watery pour & weak aroma. Ehh, disappointing!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Tap at the KC location brewpub. Clear amber to cola pour. Medium white foam. Sweet cherry juice box nose after a big vegetal / DMS whiff typical of their house beers. Taste is not so bad, mild hop and sweet cherry juice, clean cherry and berries in finish. Not bad. Suddy, peroxide mouthfeel. Probably their best beer.

Pours a hazy brownish amber with a smaller creamy off white head. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts and citrusy hops. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and hints of pine.

February 27, 2013 - on tap at Foundry. Clear brown pour with limited head and spotty lacing. Aroma and taste were malty and mild hops. Maybe some nutty aroma and flavor as it warmed.

jandd1983 (3832) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2012
It poured a medium brown color with a tiny off-white head. The aroma was of light toffee with some chocolate and maple. The taste was toffee with a hint of iced tea and had a light body with some woody character. Not my favorite.

Draft at the source. Clear brown color, small white head. Aroma of nuts and subtle toast. Nuts are more prominent in the taste, with a bit of caramel.
