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.

Gift from Maxbier, poured from a can. English Pale Ale with ginger. It pours orange and clear with a frothy white head. The flavor is clean, crisp and dry. Decent, would be good with summer type foods.

12 oz can at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, light caramel, floral, earthy hops, grass, somewhat dry, bland pale ale.

A fairly dry-tasting pale ale, which is surprising, given the very low ABV. Pours a cloudy amber with a persistent head and an aroma of spice, mellow malt, and some hop tingle. The flavor starts with the tingle, has little bit of citrus at the swallow, and finishes a little ripe. This beer is pretty OK.

Can. Love the way Butternuts make their beer. It’s always wonderfully balanced with the right amount of hops and malt without it being too dad gum hoppy. Another great job.

Hint of hops on the nose. Otherwise largely nothing. Looks good. Carmel color. Nice head. Tastes like.... Well nothing. Hint of hops at the front. Very watery. Finish has some lingering hops as well but very very subtle. Palate is watery. Carbonation is smooth tho. Overall this beer is super boring. A little malty with a hint of hops and very watery. Drinks like a bad esb.

Ginger and subtle bread on the nose. Clear orange-amber with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, spicy, ginger flavor is a little obnoxious. Light bodied. Not too much going on, which, in turn, makes the ginger way too dominant.
