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.

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.

Cunningham (6557) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2016
Farmhouse ale? Ehh and just a hint of ginger. This was a quite disappointing thingy.
Clear golden color with a white head. A quite moderate aroma. Decent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Malty, herbal and a hint of ginger.

kwik-lime (1633) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Pretty lightly hopped for the style but well-balanced with a pleasant hint of citrus. Nice enough session beer.

Smooth dark yellow pour, very little aroma. Flavor is a little bland... some grain presence and a little cream in the body. Blended well but not too distinct.

EithCubes (5434) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Can marked 07/15/15. Nose dusted with lightly herbal hops and mild crystal. Pours clear pale orange with a huge and fizzy-pathetic bone head. Taste light-medium bitter, faint tang with too-strong crystal, but there’s some deliciousness there as well. Some alcohol showing (!?), really dries out, light woody and herbal spice. Full, slightly leathery, sharp body, touch of chalk in the aftertaste. More than a little dirty. Bitterness the best thing about this, even if it’s a bit sharp, and it’s a clear set-it-and-forget it for pizza and wings. [2015.12.26: 2.0]

Burk tryp hotel nyc. Orange vätska. Ganska intetsägande i både doft och smak. Vattnig. Lätt kryddig.
