From a can — love it! Environmentally friendly and less expensive.
Pork Slap pours a clear amber and a puffy three-finger head into a wheat glass, leaving solid lacing.
The nose is clean crystal malt, bananas, toffee, and baked plaintain, with a little clove, cardamom, and ginger (apparently ginger is actually added to the beer — I only got a hint, which is all I would have wanted on this delicate nose).
On the palate, sweetness and more tropical fruit backed by assertive carbonation and light hops make for a mouthfeel that is textured yet refreshing.
There’s not a lot to it, but it’s a fine session beer to pair with spicy foods.
