24oz can, bought at Kroger. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Couple dots of lace. Looks solid. Medium body. Kind of rough, lighter carbonation. Sort of soft and smooth, though. Lightly dry finish. Bready aroma, wheat, corn, wet soggy bread, water. Light acidic. Definitely more bite in this one than in standard Port Republic. Maybe not as fresh? Not nearly as good, rougher in both texture and taste. Some unpleasant, out of place citric acidity. Not good.

Extremely clear straw yellow color with minimal bubbles. Candied citrus aroma with malt and aluminum undertones. Crisp clean palate that should be consumed cold.

Pours a clear gold with a surprisingly lasting head.Very little aroma. Flavor is quite thin and watery. Not offensive, just another macro thirst quencher.

wedgie9 (1822) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Tasted on 5/15/13 from a 24oz can purchased at Kroger for one dollar. Pours yellow/orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin, fizzy lace. The nose is more or less non-existent with just a light touch of corn flake malt. The flavor is pretty much the same, this is lightly flavored water. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and no finish whatsoever.

Poor aroma, very light on flavor... tastes mostly of carbonation until it fizzles out leaving behind a pseudo beer after taste...watery

24 oz can $1.00 at Kroger in Roswell, Ga. Pours a clear gold with a fizzy force-carbonated head. Aroma is bread dough and corn, with some skunk. Taste is inoffensive, but typical for a light beer. Bland and refreshing, but for a dollar, I’d buy it again.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Indeed bought at Kroger in Decatur GA. A lighter version of the regular port lager but not a whole lot of difference. The corn flavor is still there. This one isn’t horrible just your typical boring lite swill lager but nothing offensive to talk about.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Wilmington Island, Ga - Kroger Supermarket - 24 oz can. Light golden pour, initial bubbly white head. Pretty much a neutral aroma, hints of grass. Flavor is pretty bland but non-offensive. Picks up some distant sweet honey notes, some wet paper bag. Mouthfeel is leaning to the dry side. Had worse.

Ice-cold 24 oz can to pint. Looks alright for a light beer; a transparent gold with white lacing and good carbonation. Smells cheap, doughy, and a little bitter and skunky. Tastes like it smells, only watered down with a below-average mouthfeel. You get what you pay for.

24 ounce can, 99 cents at Kroger. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with about an inch white head that went away quickly. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, corn and a teenie bit of green apple. It tastes like sweet malt/grain along with a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s crisp and refreshing and easy enough to drink. There’s nothing offensive about this brew. It’s not great, but it’s not bad either. I wouldn’t buy this very often, but for the price I’d certainly pick this up again if I was in the mood for a light beer.
