I would recommend this beer to anyone. It has a great taste with a good finish. It is the most refreshing beer I have tried (obviously has to be cold). In conclusion, it is my favorite beer and would not change it for any other (and I have tried beers from all over the world).

De todas las cervezas producidas en Cerveceria Hondureña,la Port Royal es la unica con sabor amargo. Es la que tiene mas cuerpo y no sientes que le pusieron agua a la birria. Ademas,a mi gusto,el verde se mira soberbio

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!

Hmmm this has to be one of the best pale lagers out there. Its somehow very complex. Pour is typical of lagers, crystal clear, light gold but has a nice thick white head that stays. Aroma is yeasty, wheaty but with hop notes of lemon, citrus, and floral. Flavor is clean bitter. Palate is refreshing, thin and crisp. No off flavors and not watery...very solid stuff.

Port Royal has a very thick, creamy head, similar to whipped cream- very unusual, and it leaves behind fluffy and frosty lacing, which when I licked it was thick (again, the cream aspect) and very hop bitter. Carbonation is medium to high. The aroma has an overriding bready aspect, and the taste is a good grain to hop balance, with both being subdued. This beer has a very champagne-like body, not unlike Miller High Life, but lighter. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Port Royal finishes crisp and refreshing. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I really enjoyed it. RJT

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.

Pours dark golden yellow. Frothy head. Very good on the palate. Skunky smell, but sweet close up. Malt aroma and flavor. Preferred beer of Honduras. Nice surprise and don’t mind drinking this at all on the beaches of Roatan.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 Bottle and Can: This was my first beer in Honduras and after the trip we had it was welcome! My first thought was ...this tastes like Balantine with a bit more of a malt body. This was one refteshing beer. Again, I must go back to the lattitude/attitude aspect of this fine example of a tropical lager that is MEANT TO BE CONSUMED AT THE PROPER LATTITUDE! No hops whatsoever. Bert....one comin your way.

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.
