Finch’s Fascist Pig Ale has a thick, cream-colored head, a murky, rust-red, bubbly appearance, and lot of heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spicy (from the rye, I suppose), bready, malt and hop resin, with some background citrus. Taste is of sweet, spiced bread, hop resin, black pepper, and noticeable, yet, not harsh, bitterness. There is also a tannin note. Mouthfeel is medium, and Finch’s Fascist Pig Ale finishes smooth, easy-going, semi-dry, and highly drinkable.

A great beer from beginning to end. Starts off hoppy and ends malty.

2/11/15 - Monk’s Pub (Chicago) - Draft - Unique colour and smell of lemon and cinnamon. A little sweater than I prefer, but I enjoyed it none the less. The texture was very light, the taste good, not very strong. Good beer and I’m glad I tried it.

Did not see a date on the can. Tasted like it was old. Did not like it much.

Light brown, burnt orange in body with off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, bread, cinnamon, some lemon/grass hop scent as well. Tastes of lemon, grass, pine, caramel, cinnamon, bread. There's a strange nail polish flavor towards the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
