Porkslap Pale Ale

Delighted to find this 12 oz can at Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA as a single. Took this to the beach with me.
The pour reveals an orangeish body with some serious lace and decent retention. Sticky. I didn’t really get much nose from the beer other than a malt based sweetness. Simple. Carbonation is not high, but melds well with the taste to produce a smoouth mouthfeel. Easy going.
The beer is actually rather sweet all around. Very malty and drinkable. There’s something else in the beer which adds even more sweetness to the aftertaste but I’m having difficulty placing exactly what it is.
I think that you have to enjoy a sweeter beer to appreciate this and whether it fits classically into the APA category is a matter for some debate, but with the low ABV and my liking for malt based brews it means that this hit the spot for me.
Cans are a bonus – nice one, I’ll be drinking more of this in the future, hopefully at the beach!
