2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a single 12-oz aluminum can during ABA Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio. Pours a clear golden straw colored lager with a rocky white head that has some nice retention that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some corn, light grassy hops and some more fruity presence than the lighter version. Taste is light bodied, some light tropical fruit, golden grain malt with corn. Finish is a touch sweeter than the light version, some sweet creamed corn, fruit then a crisp, clean cut and some light apple aftertaste.

Good light malt smell, pale golden appearance clear and crisp, taste is like a generic beer...a tad malty and very light hops, smooth and crisp but nothing of note

24 oz. can from my local Kroger. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy and corn malts, a hint of citrus, surprisingly not skunky, just not too much going on.

Poured from 24 ounce can bought at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 5, 2014. Light yellow hue with good clarity, light adjunct/non-hop bitter aroma, light flavor that starts out smooth and ends up bitter. OK for what it is.

Port Republic Lager Beer has a thick, white head, a clear, bubbly straw appearance, and some slight lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, grainy, stereotypical lager, and the flavor is the same, with a shade of hop bitterness to round it out. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with an unfortunate faint chalky under-taste. Port Republic Lager Beer finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Drank from the can. Smells very corny and grainy. Can’t see it too well, looks gold-ish. Taste is grainy and husky just light the light version, but just a touch sweeter. Total dumpster juice. I really hope this is cheap because I don’t know why anyone would drink this otherwise

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
24oz can, from a Kroger somewhere in Cincinnati (not my local one). Shared with some friends. I figured this was a malt liquor, at the price point, but it turned out to be much higher quality than expected. Totally clear golden color. Thin kind of bubbly white head. Couple bits of lace. Light to medium body. Very dry texture. Head fades to minimal. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Actually way better than expected. All friends I shared this with agreed. Lighter, kind of smooth carbonation, and just a light roughness. Gets significantly better and easier to drink as I go (perfect). Bready, light lemony citrus quality to the aroma. Just a light bite in the finish. A solid, super-cheap lager. It beats budweiser. I should have known better than to judge a kroger brand so harshly..
