I’ve had too much fun with this beer in my hand to rate it low. Believe it or not, it’s been years since I’ve had a skunked sample. Nice light malt sweetness with surprisingly firm body. Decent hop character. Would rather have a helles, but this is great at parties when nothing else is available. When I was in Holland, people would carry a six pack in their briefcases.

Cool green bottle comes with "beer" inside. Could have fooled me.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2003 Perplexing. I find this very hard on my innards. Why does this cost so much and why do people pretend to like it? One of the foulest stenches I have ever encountered from a beer. Skunky sewer smell blows you away as soon as you open it. Nasty aftertaste much like copper pipes. This is really a crappy brew. Not worth the extra money. For idiot yuppies who know zero about beer. A mind bender and a stomach churner.

PorterPounder (5557) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Rerate Revisiting after 11 years. Light golden, initial white bubbly head. Grainy aroma, not skunky, Flavor is slightly bland, some grassy notes, a bit of toasted bread. Mouthfeel is crisp. Original 2.9 I know I am supposed to not like this beer because it is one of the world’s best sellers, blah, blah, blah - but it isn’t that bad. A little skunky pour - but it is a clean even-tempered skunk. Goes down smooth. Not bad for a lager. Weak snow white head though.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 This is one of, if not the worst, beer i have ever had. I think I might consider drinking my own PEE if anyone dares offer me this beer again! BBBLLLLAAAAH!

Skunky aroma and no head. Beats most American bears easily though... minus the higher price tag.
