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.

Always surprised how low Butternuts beers are rated. As a fan of ginger I found this beer a refreshing light bodied pale ale. Somewhat traditional in a sense there are no bold flavors but rather a good balance of lighter flavors. The dominating flavor is certainly ginger which hits after a small dose of pale malt, yeast and a pleasing carbonation roll across the tongue. This is a go to pale ale when Im looking for a session brew at a fair price.

12 oz can purchased at the brewery in Garrattsville, NY. Pours to a beautiful, bright, amber color, with a tight, white head that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is pleasing with some good zesty and herbal hop aromas. Palate is soft, with good pale and stewed malt flavors, paired with light fruity esters. This beer finishes with more good pale and stewed malt flavor up front, then ends with a gentle, mild hop bite that lingers. Enjoyable, very drinkable pale ale, with enough aroma and flavor to please the beer geek in me, but a beer that you could pound with impunity. I love a good drinking beer like this.

Review date 10/8/2008... From can into Alpine mug... Poyurs a cloudy apple cider brown with ample carbonation and a wispy thin head that comes and goes, leaving decent lacing. Nice bance of boiled malt with apples and cinnamon with a fait complement of mild piney hops. Clean and austere malt profile, resembling a lighter pale ale, with a fair amount of English-style grassy and piney hoppiness. Cinnamon emerges with warmth. Quite enjoyable. Very soothing mouthfeel-hearty, woody, rustic and full. Freshness and carbonation give this one some nice ups. This drinks lightly and quickly. Calorie count only 150 per the can. Another very enjoyable effort from the gentlemen down Route 80 in the 607.

Pours a hazy copper color with a short lived head. A very well achieved balance between the hops and malts. Not overly hoppy like many Pale Ales. My first beer from this brewery but it wont be my last. Cool packaging too!

Great malty pale ale. Yellow amber color with about an inch of head. Great pale ale for tale gating and out door events. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at Fats in NYC. Amber pour with an off white head, looks like a typical APA, but after that all bets are off. I think this one has an outstanding flavor. It starts off almost sour with noticeable fruit backed by sweet malt then finishes bitter with a smokey essence like that of a scotch. Really good drinking beer, I have no idea why it is rated so low.

Pours to a nice two finger head with nice retention. A nice citrus hop aroma. A mild hazy amber color. Has a little bitterness that gives way to a nice tart and clean finish. Refreshing and very drinkable. Nicely done.

12 oz can. Pours light copper with a lasting off-white head, good lacing. Nice caramel malt and piney hops aroma. Medium, tangy body, lovely carbonation. Bready malt and earthy hops fill the mouth. Long, dry, bitter finish. Nicely made, I would say, English Pale ale.

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.
