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.
