I would recommend this beer to anyone. It has a great taste with a good finish. It is the most refreshing beer I have tried (obviously has to be cold). In conclusion, it is my favorite beer and would not change it for any other (and I have tried beers from all over the world). romeofoxtro (1) - - JUN 25, 2012 does not count
De todas las cervezas producidas en Cerveceria Hondureña,la Port Royal es la unica con sabor amargo. Es la que tiene mas cuerpo y no sientes que le pusieron agua a la birria. Ademas,a mi gusto,el verde se mira soberbio 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! ekescoto (1) - USA - MAY 18, 2006 does not count
When I go to Honduras, it’s the only beer i like to drink, nice to drink on the beach or elsewhere. kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Hmmm this has to be one of the best pale lagers out there. Its somehow very complex. Pour is typical of lagers, crystal clear, light gold but has a nice thick white head that stays. Aroma is yeasty, wheaty but with hop notes of lemon, citrus, and floral. Flavor is clean bitter. Palate is refreshing, thin and crisp. No off flavors and not watery...very solid stuff.

Port Royal has a very thick, creamy head, similar to whipped cream- very unusual, and it leaves behind fluffy and frosty lacing, which when I licked it was thick (again, the cream aspect) and very hop bitter. Carbonation is medium to high. The aroma has an overriding bready aspect, and the taste is a good grain to hop balance, with both being subdued. This beer has a very champagne-like body, not unlike Miller High Life, but lighter. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Port Royal finishes crisp and refreshing. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I really enjoyed it.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC.
The beer has a faint grass and malt smell with a hint of the green bottle skunkiness in the backdrop.
The color is a clear light golden color with a small white head.
The flavor is not bad, not great either. A good hot day beer (fits Honduras well)
Overall- not a great beer, in fact I think the label on the bottle is the best part of the beer, but it isn’t a bad beer. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Pale yellow pour with creamy clinging head and lace. Aroma of sweet cooked corn and pilsner malt. No hops detected by me. Flavor same sweet corn, light malt, with some floral hop bitter on the finish. Medium body with aggressive carbonation. A touch of oxidation but overall ok beer 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Peachy reddish gold color with a thick white head. Has a really interesting belgian arom of a barn yet it tastes like wax flavored water. I dug it, i see most don't but whatever.
