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 cloudy but with nice heads. Emits a nice aroma. That’s where the fun ends. Actually, the initial tongue contact is quite pleasant, but the aftertaste soon turns odd with its ginger (and cinnamon?) spices. The malty taste also overstays its welcome. I guess it’s a fun beer to throw in the mix, but every once in a blue moon is probably enough.

This is my first review, so maybe I was being too critical, but I was very unimpressed at first. And I really noticed the bitter (sour?) lingering finish--almost like old Budweiser. But when I stepped back and just drank it, it wasn’t that bad. Decent mouthfeel. Kind of a fizzy, effervescent finish feel. I didn’t get any hops at all from this. It was all malty, or maybe even yeasty. I would drink it again, but I’m sure there are many, many beers of the same style that are much better at this price.

JanLaursen (2732) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Fra dåse, på toppen af The Standard, New York. Ravfarvet, klar med et lille off-white skum. Glat og karakterløs aroma af - tja, karamelsuppe og lidt støvede blomster. Venlig. Minder mere om en dansk classic end en "american farmhouse pale ale", sådan som etiketten prøver at bilde mig ind.

Guerde (1150) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2014
(Krampus can from UDBeernut, thanks!) Pours a light gold color with a thin white head. Aroma smells like cereal (kind of a honey-nut cheerios vibe) then abruptly, and without any rhyme or reason, switches to OFF! bug spray, maybe chlorine, and some cheap perfume. Flavor is better than the aroma (I was expecting the worst) with just a subtle honey-like sweetness, faint, papery hops, and a lingering, grainy finish. Mouthfeel is light and carb is ok. Overall this beer embodies the spirit of Secret Krampus.

Can sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Ariel. Pours yellow to orange with a nice head, aroma of lemon and malt with fizzy feeling, flavor of malt, cardboard, pretty dry with moderate bitterness and sweetness, medium bodied

Canned beer, served in a pint glass. kind of a dull lagery type taste - but easy drinking.

Maxbier (82) - Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Can; medium amber color, big tan head. Bready slightly malty aroma. Close to medium malty flavor with a hint of doughyness in the middle, sweet finish. Hops are barely there. Friendly beer, nothing off-putting about it. As a pale ale this beer is not impressive, but as a session beer it has my attention. It has the same calorie count and ABV as the top selling adjunct lagers and as an alternative to one of them, this beer is good.

kerenmk (2004) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 4, 2014
Can sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Ariel. Hazy amber with white wave. Hoppy, a little skunky aroma, skunky bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, slightly bitter finish.

plaugher (137) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
330ml can into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden with a light fluffy white head and some lacing. Basic light citrus nose with a mild malty flavor, and a bit of caramel. Not much to it.

Kita (871) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 21, 2013
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, excellent lacing and average visible carbonation. Aroma of grainy and caramel malt, mild citrus hops and spices. Taste starts with light sweet malt, following is refreshing lemony, mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is light to moderate bitter. Medium to full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty cool ale...

estover (50) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A citrus black end with a lasting hop finish is preceded by a very watery thin lightly mated ale. I don't get any farmhouse in this, it's more of a pilsner. The color is golden with nice lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
