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.

Always surprised how low Butternuts beers are rated. As a fan of ginger I found this beer a refreshing light bodied pale ale. Somewhat traditional in a sense there are no bold flavors but rather a good balance of lighter flavors. The dominating flavor is certainly ginger which hits after a small dose of pale malt, yeast and a pleasing carbonation roll across the tongue. This is a go to pale ale when I’m looking for a session brew at a fair price.

jmcgavin12 (427) - Madison, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Darkish amber pour with lots of malty notes on the nose. A bit of crisp citrus complements the sweet tones. A very refreshing beer and overall very enjoyable happy hour beer

trapped (603) - TURKEY - APR 16, 2013
Can. Very entertaining packaging (!), light amber color, very little hops aroma, fizzy, sweetish taste, long bitter finish. A bit weak for a pale ale.

Really funny name and can. good for collectors. This is also a very decent beer with a nice spicy finish. I tasted some earthy herbs and some grass in the finish. A reddish yellow pour and a pretty decent session beer

It’s inexpensive and crisply carbonated and it contains alcohol. It can be slammed back cold. On the downside not much flavor or body yet at the sametime not as drinkable as Budweiser

HeistAlmighty (1040) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
355ml can. Orange/amber pour, not completely filtered, small white head. Light fruit, apple and mild hops aroma. Taste was mild herbal tea with a very mild earthy hops finish. Body is watery and creamy. Overall, it will do. I guess.
