This beer is sold at the Piggly Wiggly stores under the name "Pig Swig". It's brewed by Thomas Creek.

Relatively clear, and a pale yellow color. White one-finger head melts into beer after a few minutes. Some lacing.

Nice, crisp pilsner malt aroma. Nothing outrageous, but nice smell.

A nice pilsner. Malty, yet adequately bitter. The bitterness sticks to the tongue. Crisp, refreshing, yet slightly sweet. A softer, yet more flavorful than most pilsners I've had.

Light bodied. Appropriate for style. Medium carbonation. Not much else to say here.

Don't be turned off by the pig gimmick. This is a good beer.
