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). Its 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.

Porkslap is a real weird and funny name for a pale ale. Nice smooth taste, Lazy-Boy easy drinking, some hops but balanced, open one up and relax, DON"T think about complexities or aroma or yeast, just drink it - it is that kind of beer.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 Fabulous label drawing of 2 pigs about to slam bellies, front legs raised in joyfully skyward. 12 ounce can. Dark tan brew with a modest head. Nice citrus aroma. Goes over the palate like an afternoon in the countryside - well balanced with wheat, hops, and fruit notes, but could use a little more "ooomph!" Makes my nose clog up - could that be high sulfites? Nice overall.

12 oz can purchased in a mix 12 pack from Spirits RB. Pours a rather ugly looking rusty reddish/orange with lots of floating chunks and a fairly decent white creamy head. Spicy hoppy aroma as if someone combined a pale ale and an Octoberfest together. Flavor is not bad with a nice malty character finsihed by a mild biting hop bitterness. Not the best beer out there but far better then I rembered it.

Can at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Orange amber color with small head. Lemon, orange, marmelade and cardamon in the aroma with malty background. Malty, worty, minerally and orangey flavor. Fairly low bitterness and low carbonation.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2007
[604-20070910] 355mL (w/ jerc). A bit of fruity hops aroma with light grape and a hint of citrus. Clear, red amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Mild citrus hops in flavour has a bit of malt, ginger and juniper or bush berry. Medium body. Surprisingly not-unpleasant brew could be more carbonated -- hey, Id slap smore of this pork belly, but maybe later rather than sooner.

A bit hazy nut brown color. Citrusy spicey (but mild) nose, hints of cardamon. Pale malts, some hops, spices. Spices (cardamon) in the aftertaste. Unbalanced, light, no good.

Pours a clear amber with some head that doesnt really stick around. Nose is hopped. Flavor is slightly bitter and for some reason reminds me of pork rhinds. Hmmm. It does have a slight sweet tone on the end of it. Feel has a decent character to it. Overall an okay drinking experience. I guess they are trying to jump on the canning bandwagon. But as far as quality goes, this one falls pretty short.

Pours copper with a bubbly light tan head. Almost no aroma save a hint a hint of sweet floral hops. Flavor is average with some light floral hops, and some barley malt. Palate is watery with almost no finish. Average, not bad, reminds me of yuengling in a way.
