Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2011
24 oz. Can from Kroger - Mt. Carmel. Poured clear pale color with a medium to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. light to moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of light to moderate duration. My expectations where met with an average entry beer.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
24 ounce can from a Kroger, opened 5/16/11. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Looks surprisingly good for the style. The aroma is pale grainy notes and grassy almost skunky hops. The taste is grassy hops, a metallic note, corn and grain. Thin body.

DrSilverworm (6370) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
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.

PorterPounder (5542) - 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.

b3shine (5425) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2012
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.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz aluminum can during ABA Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio. Pours a clear golden straw colored lager with a fast dissipating white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some corn, light grassy hops and a touch of rice. Taste is light bodied, some faint pear and golden grain malt with corn. Finish is quite watery, some sweet creamed corn then a crisp, clean cut and no aftertaste. A light beer it is.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body with a couple inches of fizzy, white suds.

Smell: Not too much going on here, not that it was ever expected, with only a small whiff of faintly sweet malted basic barley.

Taste: Husky barley grains yielding little sweetness. Very faint hop character with a very low amount of incorporated bitterness. Dry, slightly fizzy finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itís cheap, itís a lite lager, though Iíd still rather take a Sam Adams Light over it any day.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2011
The aroma is typical macro light lager with corn malt, funk, and a light touch of grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head. The taste is rather good, just very watery. The palate is thin but right for the style and very refreshing. Overall I like this beer, itís quite refreshing on a hot Florida summer night, I just wish it smelled better.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Now this is a beer, american style. Probably would be right at home drank from a brown paper bag. Canít see the liquid because I drank it right out of the can; big 24 oz can is bigger than a bomber. The 3 in looks is for the nifty can label. I assume its just cheap plain clear yellah. First impression is not real bad and as a matter of fact is rather smooth for a three cent per ounce. Goes down too easy. .... Nice big can of american cheap pale lager; cheap and it taste like clean beer. Sail close to the wind premium american beer. Brewed just for kroger, heheh! Donít you love it when they use the word premium to desscribe cheap pale lager? No real rude attributes, surprizingly acceptable. . Big thanks to Nike, this brew is a rocking racking big blue can of beer experience.
