1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very light blond color. A bit sweet and smelly aroma. Residual sweetness in the mouth, with a corn and hay touch. Boring.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Cracking the rather elegantly designed "compass" bottlecap, I was welcomed to a smell as if a skunk had lifted its tail in my direction. The closer aroma wasn't nearly as bad, being cereal and dust-driven. The flavor was massively cardboard, though the palate was nicely balanced between carbonated zing and frothy life. A green bottle for a hot country like Honduras...oh dear.

SO what do we have here? A Pilsner from Honduras, well I was certainly not expecting to take a vacation there anytime soon, so I suppose a beer at my computer will work for now.
This beer poured a crystal golden body with a considerably large frothy white head. The aroma and flavor are light, but obvious hints of quality Pilsner Malts bring a rather sweet honey like, crisp and refreshing brew.
I think I am picking up delicate notes of strawberries, man that’s strange?
Not a very complex beer but it is enjoyable!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nearly clear, yellowy-straw colored with skunky, metallic aroma. Strange mouthfeel, highly carbonated and rubbery, with a chemical tinge on the tongue. Finishes more like a lager, but that middle, with all it's chemlab happenings, is too much for me to handle.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rubber bands and plastic tires. Really fizzy pungent mouthfeel. Watery bucket taste. Didn't really the mouthfeel on this -- too much carbination.

Peachy reddish gold color with a thick white head. Has a really interesting belgian arom of a barn yet it tastes like wax flavored water. I dug it, i see most don't but whatever.

well this will certainly be against the grain, but i was impressed. White frothy head...aroma had some cereal, straw and peaches & cream notes...flavor was soft peaches & grains..in fact, i thought it was pretty damn delicious at first if not a little wierd and cloying after the full sample, which wasn't that large of a sample..but still..it was soft, delicate, and pretty drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear straw topped by big white head. The strongly skunked aroma was apparent as soon as I poured it. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised when it's in a green bottle. Still, every once in a while the taste will remain intact, so I bravely chanced a sip. And the truth is, I was pleasantly surprised. Or I guess I should say, I wasn't repulsed like I expected to be. Taste is moderately sweet, malty, faint lemon, with no bitterness. Light body typical for the region.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Expected the usual bland South American Pilsener type but was surprised. Typical light golden appearance, fluffy white head and slightly skunky aroma. However, the flavor had a little bit of a not unpleasant malty twanginess to it that gave it some character and pushed it above the ranks of the other lagers of the region. The painted bottle looked great as well with a classic sailing ship on it. Went down smooth with no aftertaste. All in all, pleasantly surprised.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Four Honduran beers exist. Three down, one to go. Created in 1983, this swill, er, macrobrew, was heavily skunked by the time I got my hands on it here in NYC. The corny adjuncts and excessive use of water were balanced by the fact that Port Royal is not massively carbonated as one would expect. The painted glass bottle was a nice touch. It's an odd irony that the countries which most often produce beers in clear and green bottles are sun-drenched countries in which such beers are likeliest to get skunked.
