COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Porkslap is a new interpretation of the English Pale Ale with a hint of fresh ginger spices (and without their tendency toward cross dressing). It’s balanced, not overly bitter, easy to drink and incredibly refreshing. We brew PorkSlap with two row barley and a little chocolate malt for color. It pours orange and crystal clear with a frothy white head. If your nose is working, you might get a little malty whiff that soon gives way to pure thirst quenching goodness and happy satisfaction. The finish is clean, crisp and dry, and it plays really nice with spicy food like tex-mex, bbq or hot wings. Go ahead. Slap that pig.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly subsided and barely left any lacing. The smell had some light English malts with light caramel and toffee notes and left out the normal "soapiness" found in most EPA’s. The taste was mainly sweet through the malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Overall, I am glad to be ending my Butternuts beers on a better note than the first two. Luckily, this one was more balanced and acceptable of having again.

330ml can while in New York in September 2013. Awesome looking can and as a bonus the beer was pretty good as well.

can - also labelled as farmhouse (!). pours hazy nicely golden orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. soft and faint citrus and pine, fruity - tad awkward - slightly rotten small red and yellow fruits - cherries perhaps, sweetish toasted malts and spicy sweet graininess, caramel, brett infection, spices. moderate carboantion, light body, very lightly tart, semi-sweet and short grassy-spicy-piney-citrusy finish. calling it farmhouse to camouflage and confirm lack of control? or maybe i’m misunderstanding.. blah.

Dark golden thin malt bodied Pale Ale with faint aroma. English ale tendencies in this session beer. Why the beer is named ’Porkslap’ or label says ’Farmhouse Ale’ is a mystery to me.

Very faint malt aroma, pours a clear amber with a finger of white head. Some roasted malt flavor, with minimal hop notes. Light bodied, with a crisp finish. It’s drinkable, and beer, but there’s not much going on here.

Can- reminds me of honey nut Cheerios and throw in some malt. Light amber in color. Overall very unique to the pale ale family.

Bought this one on name alone. From a can. Light amber in color. I think someone else said the aroma was like cherrios. I smelled that too. Somewhat bland in taste. Not a favorite.

Can. I tried this because of the can. It was a nice a little quaff. With hints of honey, butter, and roasted malt, but all the just in the faintest. I wish I could have tasted the ginger more, but I guess that might ruin the style. It went well with the big greasy burger I had, very refreshing.

First review. Aroma is slightly floral, with bready character mixed in there. Nothing jumps out, kinda simple. Copper color. Light sweetness, light hop character. Nothing great, but it’s not terrible. It’s drinkable, but I won’t be running out and buying this one again. I had it on tap a few weeks ago, and the malt character was significantly more pronounced then.
