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.

Maxbier (256) - Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Can; medium amber color, big tan head. Bready slightly malty aroma. Close to medium malty flavor with a hint of doughyness in the middle, sweet finish. Hops are barely there. Friendly beer, nothing off-putting about it. As a pale ale this beer is not impressive, but as a session beer it has my attention. It has the same calorie count and ABV as the top selling adjunct lagers and as an alternative to one of them, this beer is good.

Can sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Ariel. Hazy amber with white wave. Hoppy, a little skunky aroma, skunky bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, slightly bitter finish.

330ml can into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden with a light fluffy white head and some lacing. Basic light citrus nose with a mild malty flavor, and a bit of caramel. Not much to it.

Kita (1074) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 21, 2013
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, excellent lacing and average visible carbonation. Aroma of grainy and caramel malt, mild citrus hops and spices. Taste starts with light sweet malt, following is refreshing lemony, mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is light to moderate bitter. Medium to full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty cool ale...

estover (55) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A citrus black end with a lasting hop finish is preceded by a very watery thin lightly mated ale. I don't get any farmhouse in this, it's more of a pilsner. The color is golden with nice lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great malty pale ale. Yellow amber color with about an inch of head. Great pale ale for tale gating and out door events. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
