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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a vibrant orange-caramel color with an enormous creamy-fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was tagny and sweetish with notes of phenol, chalk , citrus and perfume. The flavor was tart, tangy and semi sweet with a bit of chalk and notes of lemon and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

Jabah (283) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Can says "Farmhouse Ale"...but this definitely tastes more like a pale ale. Has a slight Belgian feel...extra carbonation like a saison, but the flavor is mostly APA. Cloudy medium orange appearance. Flavor of caramel malt, mild citrus and hops. This is a good year round beer and works for anytime of the day.

Oddly the stags head draft line was done but since I was here grab a quick brew and leave. From a can Light creamy orange pour soapy head. Nose is malty and Bready. Tastes of malt, toast, straw, some tea. Thin watery palate. Odd aftertaste.

Orange can. Gold top. Served cold. Nose is caramel with light toast. Taste is like buttered toast with a grassy hop flavor. Very bready and toasty as it warms. Less butter. Decent but not great by any means.

BOD 9/26/14. Pours a slightly hazy orange, the same color as the can. World class head volume, retention and lacing. Light nose of biscuit and a hint of grassy and floral hops. As it warms, a bit of orange is noted. Medium body that approaches a creamy texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescence in the middle and a prickly rush in the finish. The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. It is reasonably intense, slightly complex but is perfectly balanced. It begins with a nice blended flavor that slowly separates. Grassy hops lead then flow into a very mild bitterness. Under the bitterness is an orange flavored background. Biscuit malt proves a subtle balancing sweetness at the end of the middle. The finish has a ginger note that exhibits itself in both flavor and a lingering light spicy bitterness. The finish is dry and a ginger bitterness lingers.

Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, biscuit, caramel and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium sweet with a long malty, caramel and floral finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Can. A hazy, pale amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather malty, with a light fruity touch. Some grass and pine cones too. It’s medium to full-bodied, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, some pine cones and grass as well as caramel, bready malts. Long finish with a touch of pine cones and orange zest. Too malty for my likings, but a decent beer anyway, and after five hours of driving it felt nice. 150614
