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.

A clear brown amber ale with a thick off white head. A light floral hops aroma, very sweet malt comes out, pretty decent. In mouth, a light nutty pale ale with light floral hops, a bit light but honest. Extra points for the can, since this would be a good one to bring on a hike. Bought at BOTW, 6 pack split with Probstk.

Clear pale amber pour with a small white head. Funky, sour aroma. Can says its a farmhouse ale. All malt - kinda puzzling how an all malt beer can be a pale ale? Well, how about water with a splash of crushed corn. Horrible.

Weird tasting bra. Has a sour bitterness to it. The fact that you are wandering if there is actual pork in the beer while you are drinking it does not help the cause.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 Unusual easy drinking session pale ale. Thin bodied and over all had a "fakeness" about it that I could not quite put my finger on. Perhaps some adjuncts in here? The best that can be said is that it is not offensive, and has a hella-cool can.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Can. Slightly hazy orange body, not much head. Slightly musty pine needs and grapefruit rind over toasty malt in the nose. A differently-hopped pale ale: it goes with a zingy lime zest and grass clippings over light pale malt. Dry, hoppy finish marred by a metallic thing.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a medium colored amber but completely transparent. Thin white head. Spotty lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy with some citrus notes. Pretty bland, but not appalling. The flavor is lightly malty with light grassy/citrusy hops. Decent palate finishing clean. Very drinkable for what it is. I’d pick this over nearly any BMC product.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Dusty copper color. Also dusty off-white head. Herbally grains aroma. As I swirl it in my snifter, it is slightly offensive. Taste is stale snowball water (eating a snowball). Stale grainy malts with some sweet malt liquor character (maybe its the can). Meh...

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Can: Pours to a clear amber colored body with a medium eggshell-colored head that leaves a bit of lacing and lasts for a bit. The aroma is light earthy malts, caramel, and very mild hops that almost smell spicy. The taste shows a bit of bitterness, though not much fresh hops, there’s some grapefruit hops midway through but they’re dull, not bright, and some floral/grassy bitter hops throughout. There’s a bit of allspice, earthy caramel malt, pale malt, honey-biscuit flavors, and a tough of bread. Light bodied, medium carbonated, finishes without much aftertaste, though there is a bit of residual bitterness left from the hops on the tongue.

12oz can shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Cool looking can. Poured a medium amberish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of some earth, light citrus and some peppery spices. Tastes of caramel and light earth. Thinner body.
