look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a tallboy can into a standard pint glass. Moderate hand. No clear identifiable date on the can, but there is a presumably fascist pig depicted.

A: Cloudy, iced tea-colored body with scant head. Poor retention. Small amount of visible sediment clumps. Minimal lacing.

S: Sweet, slightly spicy malt with hints of apple, brown sugar. Hops are present with touches of indistinct citrus and lighter pine elements. Dough.

T: Bittersweet opening with hops and malt battling for dominance. Rye makes a transient appearance midway. Finished semi-dry with some linger hop bitterness in the aftertaste. A faintly aspirin-like quality hits the back of the throat. Alcohol is relatively well hidden for 8% ABV.

M: Low carbonation with a medium body. Would likely benefit from a bit more effervescence.

O: Middle-of-the-road DIPA/hopped-up amber that struck me as a bit under-carbonated. Kudos for the tallboy can format, though.

Prost!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: Amber (creative huh?). Somewhat hazy. Smattering of messy off white head. Fits the bill for an amber.
smell: Pleasant nose with a nice balance of malt and a little biting hops. Nice sweet edge.
taste: Hops are more prominent here. Still a good bit of sweetness but the hops are right there and the finish has a little bitterness.
overall: Fine example of an amber, w/o either sweetness or maltiness or hoppy bitterness dominating.

Fascist Pig poured from a tall can into a small tulip.

Hazy dark amber with s fine light beige head and excellent lacing.

Aroma complex and semi-sweet.

Flavor. Nice balance and complexity wWith a touch of smoke. Sweet and darker roasted malts mix with a near equal hop component.

O flavorful yet not challenging beer.
