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.

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.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2008
Amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is very fruity with loads of cherry and raspberry. Lean pale malt with just a kiss of caramel and toasted malts. A hint of spiciness and light earthiness. Flavour is also quite fruity and spicy with loads of berry and light peachiness as well. Fairly assertive spicy/herbal bitterness. Much better than I would have expected. Fruity and spicy but sufficiently dry to drink more than one. I wasn’t expecting anything but this was fairly nice.

This is not a great beer. The oly saving grace is its name. Thanks to Piscator for sharing. It’s nice to rate something again.

piscator34 (2273) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 4, 2008
Canned sample via gregclow. Amber-brown in colour with low carbonation. Grainy aromas dominate, along with some citrusy floral and solvent notes. Flavors are of pale malts, white grapefruit, and ginger (which seems very out of place). Woody bitterness on the back end, along with some faint caramel malts and chemical astringency. Fairly bitter, but in an unpleasant tannic sort of way. Not good.

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.

Slipstream (2385) - USA - DEC 12, 2007
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.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2007
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, I’d slap s’more of this pork belly, but maybe later rather than sooner.
