Not so much for me, to IPAish - part of a flight at the brewery with Bro and Bob on the way to Cheaha State Park in Alabama. Carrie the production manager opened early for us to taste and tour.

My backlog is such that I CAN't tell you where this one came from. It may have been Uncle JedI or someone else. I don't know, but I thank whoever got it for me.

From the CAN: "Craft Brewed Liquid Folk Art"; "Recommended Food Pairings [depictions of ham, steak and pizza]"; "This medium-bodied Ameri[CAN] Pale Ale is delightfully crisp and hand crafted. The Munich malts provide a perfect balance to the five fresh hop additions that go into every batch. Smooth enough for any craft beer newcomer, yet complex enough for even the most discerning [CAN]noisseur. SO, GET NAKED AND ENJOY!"

I Crack!ed it open and CANducted a gentle Glug due to its age. I still got a finger of foamy, bone-white head with moderate retention from it. Color was a slightly hazy Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose had a grassiness underlain with a biscuit maltiness. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was initially citrusy, like sweet mandarin oranges, but as the biscuit maltiness kicked in, it became more like a liquid muffin. It was certainly tasty and the finish was semi-dry. It is like I remarked in an earlier review of the same APA style - it was not knock your socks off in terms of its hoppiness, but I find that to be a pleasant change of pace. I probably would not want a steady diet of this Pig, but it was a nice enough beer.

Bottled a month ago. Pretty good. Amazing color and taste. Not much in the nose. Great lacing.
