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). Itís 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 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.

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 itís only an average APA with less hop presence than I would prefer and pretty muddled taste that doesnít 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 couldnít 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.

Canned. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet grassy and hoppy, but also with lighter notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with a light hop bite in the tongue, leading to a dry medium bitter finish, with notes of grass lingering in the aftertaste.

Poured a dark light orange/amber. It poured a nice head that disapated quickly. The aroma is that of malts a slight bit of hops. A really nice can but Iím not quite sure what a Porkslap is. It is smooth but light. A good backyard drinker and a decent example of a pale ale though its body is not complete nor balanced. I would go back here if offered one but I probably wouldnít buy one over another pale.

Ugghh...What a mess. I love the can and the name, though. Aroma was weak but could pick up some hops in there if you search for it. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was very soapy. A hint of pale malt and some bitterness in the aftertaste but the strong soap-ness could not be overlooked. Oily soapy mouthfeel. All in all, not unenjoyable but close.

Awesome simple pale ale in a simple can. Perfect for barbecues, a nicer beer than the average rating implies. Itís supposed to be mild, people. Not every beer is best when itís "imperial-"ized or "doubled."

First off, This Can rocks. With that said for a canned pale ale itís not bad. Some nice hops balance out a sweetish malt flavor. Not bad
