2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked up a single 12-oz aluminum can during ABA Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio. Pours a clear golden straw colored lager with a 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.
This was 98 cents in Ohio. The aroma presents a tremendous amount of breadiness carried by high carbonation. The taste is rather generic and fits the profile of most anything cheap made in Milwaukee in the last 30 years. Drinkable but not memorable or remarkable. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2015
24 oz. can from 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. Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Poured from 24 ounce can purchased at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 6, 2014. Light yellow hue, faint to light bittersweet nose, light adjunct/bittersweet flavor. Not unpleasant and better than Bud Light--but you already knew that. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - SEP 12, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 5-27-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a clear straw color with a big fizzy white head. The head fades very fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma is heaviest of sweet corn and a whole lot of sour grapes . Some grain and a little bit of a papery smell are there as well.
Taste -The taste begins with some light corn sweetness and a light grainy flavor. It is fairly consistent throughout the taste were in the middle it is joined by a rather tart and sour taste of green grapes and apples. These flavors take the taste to its end where they are joined by a little bit of bitterness and a slight paper taste, with them all, in the end, leaving a overall sour and light corny taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is high. It is quite appropriate for the style as it hides any off flavors and makes it more refreshing.
Overall- A rather average light beer at a rather low price. It has much more sourness then the average light brew and is a bit more complex. It is not spectacular, but would make a good session style brew for a tailgate or the like. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Drank from the can. Smells like cold macro lager. Rather strong malt aroma with some corn and graininess. Looks pale yellow but hard to tell when dranking from a can. Taste is really bad. Rather husky and astringent. Gets more tolerable as I continue to sip, but still pretty bad. Some apple as it warms too.

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. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Extremely clear straw yellow color with minimal bubbles. Candied citrus aroma with malt and aluminum undertones. Crisp clean palate that should be consumed cold. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2013
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 (2703) - 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. geologyguy (1687) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Poor aroma, very light on flavor... tastes mostly of carbonation until it fizzles out leaving behind a pseudo beer after taste...watery
