Pours a deep amber with big red hues. Head is about one finger off white and retains nicely.

Smell is great. Very crisp fruity aroma is forward that turns to a more herbal earthy hop aroma. Very nicely blended and works surprisingly well. Malt comes near the end and there is lots of nice grainy slightly roasted specialty malt.

Taste is great and follows the aroma. More earthy herbal hop flavors are forward in the taste but there is a mild hint of fruitiness. There is a also some slight piney resin and bitterness. Malt is good, slightly toasted malt gives it a nice grainy flavor near the end.

Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied. Lots of hop oil resin and bitterness help balance the body and gives it a super sticky finish.

Big red cherry cider with ample inch and a half inch head with great spread on the sides.

Extremely mild aroma of caramel malt, hop cone and toasty grain.

Taste begins with biscuity malt carrying an earthy hop leaf bitterness. Not so sweet and finishes with a tincture of minerals.

Medium body that is creamy.

Not able to cuuursh this. Nothing offensive but I'm left craving for something more-yea I'm a spoiled brat. It's ok.

The Axe Scar Pig is a good Amber ale. The beer poured a clear rich amber with thin white head that did not lace. The scent was typical of most amber ales...slightly malty with caramel undertone. The taste was sweet malt base with enough bittering hops to make it interesting...there is also a touch of spice. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer is solid and a good offering from Solemn Oath.
