Poured from a can, purchases this sixer at trader Joe's for 7.99.

Very little head on this beer, and almost no lacing. The beer itself is a fairly hazing golden amber color. I expected this beer to be much clearer than it is, perhaps unfiltered? Regardless, I like it!

The nose is fairly subdued, light piney hop notes, that quickly fade to a WONDERFUL malty notes, not bready per see, almost candied fruit? This is light though and only became apparent after the beer warmed up some.

The taste is somewhat of a let down after a surprisingly subtle nose. This beer may be slightly over-carbonated, I get a fairly stong metallic taste and a fairly bitter flavor. The beer leaves a tangy metallic, over-carbonated aftertaste.

Overall, this beer is not bad. It is a well-priced and approachable sixer, a little over-bitter for my taste and perhaps metallic, but the nose is truly sublime.

Porkslap is what I'd rate as "drinkable". First impression was not great, as it had an odd dry bitterness that was unexpected versus other pale ales. By the third tasting, I enjoyed that bitterness as a unique quality of the beer. The front of the taste is weak, but the aftertaste is solid. Carbonation was heavy.

Definitely would session in the future.
