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.

Amber color with a white head that quickly recedes to a ring around the glass. Aroma is of strawberries, caramel, and toffee. Taste is really light with grain and caramel being the predominant characteristics. Finish is very slightly hoppy with a touch of malt to it. Light carbonation and body. I didn’t really enjoy this.

Cloudy amber with medium off white head. Sweet piney aroma with fruity notes. Sweet and hoppy flavor with caramel notes. Ends bitter.

Hazed amber color. Very smooth feel with a fruity/citrus hop flavor. Decent balance of sweet malt and hops with a light body, though no part of the beer is bold or challenges the drinker. Light hop bitter taste lingers.

Porkslap Pale Ale is a cloudy, light amber ale with a soft, foamy, off-white head. It has a sandy aroma; spicy with a note of orange peel. It is smooth and foamy, with a crisp finish. It has a simple, balanced, amply bitter flavor. It looks, smells and tastes homemade. This is much better than their "IPA".

Can courtesy of cbkschubert. Aroma did have a slight aluminum can presence but also some sweet fruits. Orange body with good head and decent lacing. Citrus hop bittering to the flavor but that musty aluminum also appeared in the flavor. Good can beer thanks Craig.

mansquito (6887) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Pours long-lasting white head and has an amber brown body. Fruity smell. Moderate hops. Citrusy end. Enough malts. Problem in that I didn’t like the aftertaste. The first beer was ok, but every ensuing one kind of annoyed me.

GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Pours a hazy golden amber with a creamy white head that lasted for a little while leaving no lacing. Smell is faintly hopped with lemongrass aromas and a bready malt background. I also got a ginger kick in the nose as well. Taste is more heavy on the bready malts with a bit of lemongrass but a strong ginger presence as well - almost like tea. The mouthfeel is light but fairly bitter. The drinkability is pretty good on this one though there is nothing that stands out and it’s only an average APA with less hop presence than I would prefer and pretty muddled taste that doesn’t blend extremely well.

Bottle: This poured copper in color with a fluffy head. The nose showed tropical citrus fruits and light spice. In the mouth it came off as quite flat even though there was quite a bit of small bubbles constantly rushing to the top. So, while it was definitely properly carbonated it just came off as flat, dry and tired.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 12 oz can purchased at Penn Station. I was 8 drinks in when I tried this, and I still couldn’t finish it. Aroma is hop and citrus I guess?? taste is smooth , malt and hop. Gross though. nasty just like the two fat billies slapping bellies on the can.
