Porkslap is a new interpretation of the English Pale Ale with a hint of fresh ginger spices (and without their tendency toward cross dressing). Itís 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.

Ugghh...What a mess. I love the can and the name, though. Aroma was weak but could pick up some hops in there if you search for it. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was very soapy. A hint of pale malt and some bitterness in the aftertaste but the strong soap-ness could not be overlooked. Oily soapy mouthfeel. All in all, not unenjoyable but close.

Awesome simple pale ale in a simple can. Perfect for barbecues, a nicer beer than the average rating implies. Itís supposed to be mild, people. Not every beer is best when itís "imperial-"ized or "doubled."

First off, This Can rocks. With that said for a canned pale ale itís not bad. Some nice hops balance out a sweetish malt flavor. Not bad

12 fl oz. can. Dark golden colour. Clear. White medium-sized head. Fruity raisiny cinnamon aroma. Feels light when it enters the mouth. Quite a bit of aroma. Crisp drying hop bitterness. Notes of raisins and cinnamon towards the finish. Aftertaste is dry.

ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a thin, wispy white head. Smell: Middling malty aroma with a bit of sourness and a squirt of fruit juice. Taste: Pale malts with some sweetness. Lightly hoppy with a mild bitterness. Slight sourness. Hint of fruit. Sheesh. All the flavors are pretty bland and come across as half-hearted, like the beer equivalent of a shrug. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Moderate carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks! Those smug, giggling pigs on the can giving each other high-fives certainly donít help at all.

1/31/2008: Porkslap Pale Ale has a hazy brownish-orange color with a frothy off-white crown. It smells a bit like cinnamon applesauce and honey (actually it smells a lot like my friendís Apple Butter Cyser that he made). The flavor starts much like the aroma and then finishes with a dry, light caramel maltiness and flavors of tea and floral hops with an accompanying mild to moderate bitterness. The bitterness sticks in the back of the throat for awhile along with a decent spiciness (cinammon?, nutmeg?). This beer has a medium-light body and an unexciting palate (reminds me of water). Overall it isnít as good as I had hoped, but it does have a funny name and label!

12 fl. oz. can (6 12 19 A 3 BH) from some little store in Astoria, New York. Rating #79 for this beer...

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of mildly citrusy, but stale hops and grainy pale malts. Body starts lightly sweet and toasty with some bitter hoppy notes and a slightly drier grainy finish. The hops seem muted, but I canít tell how old this can is.

jgb9348 (5686) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Nice clear amber coloured body with a nice sized tan head. Aroma of clean malt, cardboard, soap and a tiny bit of hops - a bit off, definitely. Light-bodied; Soapy flavour with a bit of malt, some cardboard, light sugar and very little else - no hops at all. Aftertaste super mild and flavourless. I sampled this 12 ounce CAN purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 13-January-2008.

beerbomb (222) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours honey amber with thick white head. Very nice toasted, caramelly malts and floral, woody hoppiness in the aroma. Flavor is very well balanced between citric, floral hops and sweet, toasty, nutty malts with some vanilla and earthiness. Almost creates a fruity balance like in good ESBs. Dry, crisp palate with nice lingering flavors. Very enjoyable and a good value.
