( 12oz bottle thanks to angrypirate06) Pours very pale yellow almost no bubbles. Nose of apple, butter and grass. Taste of cereal grains, water and almost no flavor here at all. angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Mmmmm! Clear pour. Aroma is grain, cereal, bland. Flavor was tons of delicious rice, adjuncts, and foulness. Would definitely recommend. Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Angrypirate, HOLLA! Clear straw pour. Tiny to non-existent aroma. Bit o’ skunk. Taste is watery and slightly grainy. A bit of wheaty tingle. What? Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Thanks to angrypirate06 for sharing this beer.
The beer pours macro yellow with a white head. The aroma is corny macro. The flavor is more of the same with corn, rice and some malt sweetness. Just your basic adjunct flavor here. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle with huge props to angrypirate06. Pours with a white head over a pale golden body. Aroma of grass and lemon. Taste is soggy grain, adjuncts and some sourness. Fizzy. ACK!

Bottle. Pours a very light clear yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of light, clean malt and light hop presence. Flavor is the same but the flavors stick out on their own, also some faint graininess, light malt does show up and a very faint grassy note with a faint hoppy tang. Mouth feel is light body and over carbonated. Overall, it’s nicely balanced and easy drinking and very clean and crisp. Not bad at all. I would prefer this over the easy drinking session American Macro lagers and many easy drinking session import lagers. Light and full of flavor. I find it odd that I am actually giving this beer a score this high. I just like it....Very refreshing as well... roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Poured a clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Aroma is pretty plain and clean, slight lemon grass essence. Flavor a bit malty and heavier than most central american lagers, though flavor pretty neutral. Slight corn/grass combo, but overall, nothing special. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2009
20091115 12oz bottle from dmac. Very pale golden with lofty, pillowy white head that clumps thickly on the glass. Aroma is awful and loaded with adjunct, sweet, tinny, corny. Mouthfeel is actually quite nice at first with soft eff and barely present late bitterness. Then it devolves; there’s also a terrible solvent quality that scrapes the sweetness right off the palate and persists. Corn and rice husk flavor and quite sweet. Thanks a bunch, Dave. dmac (6392) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2009
12 oz bottle of macro Import crap. Poured a super clear, super pale gold with an actually decent looking bright white large bubbly foamy head. Aroma was all corn syrup sweetness with some dusty cereal grain. The flavor was so weak that it’s not even offensive it’s simply not there. The body is thin with far too much carbonation. DRAIN POUR but hey one more country rated. noyritus (3) - MONTENEGRO - OCT 1, 2009 does not count
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!
