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.

finn1918 (234) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2012
From memory. Pours a deep orange with an off-white head. Sweet and spicy on the nose. Good clean bitterness, but the malt is overpowered by the hops. This was okay, but not a favorite.

Ktwse (4466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of caramel, malt. Taste is sweetish with a mellow pine bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

17Beer (310) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Malt and bread aromas. Pours a clear orange with an off white rocky head. Lots of lacing. Tastes of malt, pine and leather. Cant taste the ginger. Medium carbonation. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

slowrunner77 (11487) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Surprise find in a mix pack at the local total wine. Jokes on me. Hat har. Can. Pale copper orange. Watery thin. Malt heavy for a pale with light spicy hops, not really feeling any ginger. Worst newb of the year so far - yay?

Psytron (2149) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Can, BBE 25.8.2016. Smell of malt. Amber colour, beige head. Aroma of malt, some straw, some grass and hops in finish. Ginger not noticeable, which is a good thing. Mildly bitter, half light body. Fizzy carbon, slightly dry palate. Easy to drink, not challenging in any way. Presumably not suffered at all from being overage.

Served in Meatliquor in Leeds - served very cold. Pours amber, light fizz. Citrus flavour, smoky, with quite a floral finish. Pleasant session beer

chinchill (4761) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2016
12 oz can served in standard pint glass. (From 2010 notes) A - nice copper color with light tan head. Head is short-lived but leaves partial top coat and side lacing. S - sweet floral malt with mild hops T - Crisp, smooth and malty. Brewery reports that this "beer is flavored with crystal hop and a touch of fresh ginger"; the ginger (thankfully?) is just barely detectable. Citrus and caramel notes are more obvious. Nice progression of tastes and lingering finish. M - a bit light. Well carbonated. An interesting and malty but well-balanced PA "brewed with 2 row N. American barley and English crystal malt".

hohops (952) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Appearance- murky amber, a golden base, one-finger beige head which lasts. Aroma- lots of bready malt, cereal, hints of dark fruit, hoppy hints. Taste- creamy malt, toasty, cereal and grains, wheat, soft fruity hops. Not much sign of the ginger.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Nothing particularly bad about this beer but its quite boring. The only hint of ginger I get dries out the beer the flavor has little hops. Just eh.

Idiosynkrasie (7231) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2016
355ml can. Clear, amber colour with average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Weak caramel malty aroma, a mild touch of red berries. Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly bitter hoppy, cautious hints of re berries, a minimally soapy touch of ginger. Quite expressionless, thirst quenching; ordinary mineral water would do as well.
