Mmmmm! Clear pour. Aroma is grain, cereal, bland. Flavor was tons of delicious rice, adjuncts, and foulness. Would definitely recommend.

Angrypirate, HOLLA! Clear straw pour. Tiny to non-existent aroma. Bit o’ skunk. Taste is watery and slightly grainy. A bit of wheaty tingle. What?

Thanks to angrypirate06 for sharing this beer. The beer pours macro yellow with a white head. The aroma is corny macro. The flavor is more of the same with corn, rice and some malt sweetness. Just your basic adjunct flavor here. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle with huge props to angrypirate06. Pours with a white head over a pale golden body. Aroma of grass and lemon. Taste is soggy grain, adjuncts and some sourness. Fizzy. ACK!

Bottle. Pours a very light clear yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of light, clean malt and light hop presence. Flavor is the same but the flavors stick out on their own, also some faint graininess, light malt does show up and a very faint grassy note with a faint hoppy tang. Mouth feel is light body and over carbonated. Overall, it’s nicely balanced and easy drinking and very clean and crisp. Not bad at all. I would prefer this over the easy drinking session American Macro lagers and many easy drinking session import lagers. Light and full of flavor. I find it odd that I am actually giving this beer a score this high. I just like it....Very refreshing as well...

roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Poured a clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Aroma is pretty plain and clean, slight lemon grass essence. Flavor a bit malty and heavier than most central american lagers, though flavor pretty neutral. Slight corn/grass combo, but overall, nothing special.

20091115 12oz bottle from dmac. Very pale golden with lofty, pillowy white head that clumps thickly on the glass. Aroma is awful and loaded with adjunct, sweet, tinny, corny. Mouthfeel is actually quite nice at first with soft eff and barely present late bitterness. Then it devolves; there’s also a terrible solvent quality that scrapes the sweetness right off the palate and persists. Corn and rice husk flavor and quite sweet. Thanks a bunch, Dave.

12 oz bottle of macro Import crap. Poured a super clear, super pale gold with an actually decent looking bright white large bubbly foamy head. Aroma was all corn syrup sweetness with some dusty cereal grain. The flavor was so weak that it’s not even offensive it’s simply not there. The body is thin with far too much carbonation. DRAIN POUR but hey one more country rated.

See my review of Cerveza Imperial for my thoughts on all the Honduran beers. Port Royal is my favorite, I can’t find it anywhere outside Honduras. It is a favorite of the islanders, however Barena(aka bahia) is the most hip and it’s a goody also like a smoother Corona. Port royal comes in a green bottle you can find it at any "pulperia" or bar. It’s light yet has a distinct flavor and just has a uniqueness to it that I truely savor. I gave a can to a brewer friend and he said he has never tasted anything quite like it. I bring it back with me everytime I visit Honduras. You can also find it in a special aluminum bottle - or it did for awhile not sure if you can still find them. A fair Harbor and safe Anchorage! While your there ask for a shot of G i f i t i if you can find it - a indigenous drink made by the Guarfinas - make sure you have a traditional orange (not a lemon) handy for the chaser! It’s an herbal liquor that’ll make you feel great, not sure what roots and herbs it is made from the recipe is supposedly sacred. Salud!

Bottle, nice golden colour, nice bubbles, nice white huge head that lasts and lacing very nice. This is probably the best Honduran beer I drunk: nice grainy and malty aroma and an interesting and little complex taste of grains, malts, light sweet and a light bitter and grassy finish. The overall taste however could be better balanced. Comes very close to the level of Belgian, German and Czech pale lager beers.
