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.

Unremarkable beer. Sort of bland. Nothing really bad about it but nothing stands out about it either. I would drink it again but I wouldn’t be excited about it

Orange can. Gold top. Served cold. Nose is caramel with light toast. Taste is like buttered toast with a grassy hop flavor. Very bready and toasty as it warms. Less butter. Decent but not great by any means.

BOD 9/26/14. Pours a slightly hazy orange, the same color as the can. World class head volume, retention and lacing. Light nose of biscuit and a hint of grassy and floral hops. As it warms, a bit of orange is noted. Medium body that approaches a creamy texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescence in the middle and a prickly rush in the finish. The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. It is reasonably intense, slightly complex but is perfectly balanced. It begins with a nice blended flavor that slowly separates. Grassy hops lead then flow into a very mild bitterness. Under the bitterness is an orange flavored background. Biscuit malt proves a subtle balancing sweetness at the end of the middle. The finish has a ginger note that exhibits itself in both flavor and a lingering light spicy bitterness. The finish is dry and a ginger bitterness lingers.

Can 355ml @ Hotel room, Weber’s, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, biscuit, caramel and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium sweet with a long malty, caramel and floral finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Can. A hazy, pale amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather malty, with a light fruity touch. Some grass and pine cones too. It’s medium to full-bodied, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, some pine cones and grass as well as caramel, bready malts. Long finish with a touch of pine cones and orange zest. Too malty for my likings, but a decent beer anyway, and after five hours of driving it felt nice. 150614

Gift from Maxbier. Pours cloudy dark golden color with white head and chunks floating around. Biscuit malt aroma with herbal hops. Dry biscuit malt start with mineral notes and a floral and herbal hop finish. Name is not particularly appealing and neither is the picture on the can.

New name: Befuddlement. I’m not really sure what this is... The can says pale ale and farmhouse ale, so I guess the consumer is supposed to decide--I guess ratebeer went with English Pale. Wrong. The answer is "B" farmhouse/saison. If I ordered an English pale at a bar and this arrived at my table, I’d surely convince the server that they got the wrong beer. The spicy notes, bready aromas, almost sage like quality, and the sort of lemony soapiness is totally symptomatic of a farmhouse/saison. In other words, this brew gets a lower score due to indecision...

12 oz can. Tasted while in NYC. Pours a hazy amber colour with small off-white head. Nothing too pronounced here. Light malts, floral and hops. Ok.

Gift from Maxbier, poured from a can. English Pale Ale with ginger. It pours orange and clear with a frothy white head. The flavor is clean, crisp and dry. Decent, would be good with summer type foods.
