Port Republic Lager Beer has a thick, white head, a clear, bubbly straw appearance, and some slight lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, grainy, stereotypical lager, and the flavor is the same, with a shade of hop bitterness to round it out. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with an unfortunate faint chalky under-taste. Port Republic Lager Beer finishes crisp and refreshing.

I drank it from a 24 oz. can so I can't comment on the appearance. This was one of cheapest,babe in the woods, I have found. For the everyday PBR or Bud drinker, this beer excelled both in price, drink-ability and refreshment. Thank you Mr. Middle-East convenience store clerk for a positive recommendation.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

LOOK: Pale yellow, clear, small white topping disappears quickly.

SMELL: Stale, grainy smell. The aroma is a hodge podge of corn, rice, generic malt sweetness and a small hint of processed hop.

TASTE: Tastes ultra clean, mildly sweet and rice is the primary flavor.

FEEL: Light bodied, watery, well carbonated

OVERALL: pretty lame lager.

14.99 for a 30 pack here in Durham N.C.

This is a great,cheap american lager...great meaning slightly above average as a whole.

This beer is also known as Big Flats 1901,which you can buy at Walgreens...but this version tastes a better.Its not as offensive to the nose and has hardly any aftertaste...a great sessionable beer.Good on a hot day or when youre watching t.v.

Make sure you keep this beer cold....it does get a bit unwieldy as it warms up.

If youre not a fan of american lager then this is not for you.Elite beer enthusiasts,if you like cheap "bad" beers....you may be surprised by this beer.

This is my new beer that im going to keep the fridge stocked with,PBR was my regular but its popularity has made it alot more expensive...my new Sunday beer for when im broke

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Pours an extremely clear gold with a massive frothy white head. Virtuall no carbonation bubbles. Left almost no lacing

S - Grain husks, corn adjunct, rice, white grapes, metal.

T - Seltzer water, corn husks, white grapes, metal, rice adjunct, rubbing alcohol finish if drank from the can.

M - medium bodied with almost no carbonation.

O - Overall, this was just slightly above your average mass produced swill. For the price tag ( $16.99 a 30 pack ) i'd say this is probably the second best beer in it's range. Pabst is first. This makes a good party beer however.

24 ounce can, priced in an economy price range.
This beer is an economy priced beer that has characteristics that surpass similarly priced brews. It provides value.
Pours a bright crystal clear, very pale straw color with a very decent snow white head that has better retention than most economy priced lagers.
Aroma is a little earthy with some corn husks
Taste is not at all offensive. Not much to highlight but that's ok.
Overall, in rating this beer on a value basis it did fine.

There is absolutley nothing wrong with this beer. I know that's a hell of a way to start a review, but anything I say has to be tempered by the fact that I paid $1.09 for a 24oz can. That's only slightly more expensive than freedom (which, of course costs $1.05).

All things considered (IT'S 50¢ A BEER!) this stuff is really quite drinkable. It's cheaper than even Red Dog or Icehouse, and much more palatable.

Who are we fooling here? No one. This isn't going to be you're new favorite beer, but if your either cheap or broke and looking to catch a buzz, this beats the shit out of malt liqueur.

Serve ice cold,
Cheers!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance - pale yellow/straw, three to four fingers of white foam, holding quite well. Melts steadily down, we'll be quaffing shortly.

Aroma - cereal, grain husk, about as expected.

Taste - light sweet grain, a bit rough at mid-palate. Shallow and watery, but going down fast after working up a decent sweat with the pigskin outside. No aftertaste and finish aside from the bland grain. Light bitter twang at the end, meh.

Mouthfeel - thin and watery, average crispness.

Drinkability - super cold, she'll drink but don't dally. Nice enough looking can but not worth the shelf space.

24oz can for a dollar at Kroger's. Drank straight from the can.

Looks just like the light version.

Clean, light mineral smell.

Not much. Slightly earthier than the light version.

Carbonated water, dry finish. Refreshing.

Definitely worth the money. Not much difference from the light version at all.

Clad in a gigantor blue can with the slogans "first rate" and "sail close to the wind" emblazoned on its other wise generic design. Definitely feeling gypped after finding out everyone else aid a dime less than the $1.09 I paid for this obvious superstar at the Kroger in Apex yesterday. That's the cheapest 24 oz can I know (tied with Genesee Ice at a local gas station)

Okay, the truth is that there isn't much there. Apeearance is light ginger ale colored with literally no foam or head at all. Tons of visible carbonation. Nose is a light, grainy, sweet blah. Taste is exactly what you'd expect. Sweet and inoofensive. Slightly sour in the finish. Done. Okay for the price but depressingly boring.

It is what it is! Poured from can not very appealing, though it does look like its type of brew. The smell to me was sour grain and nothing else. The taste same way, mouthfeel is smooth though so it helps to get it down. Overall I would not buy this over PBR or Budweiser because its 2 dollars cheaper its worth spending the extra few if this is your style of beer!

After some research, I found that this is brewed by Genesee. Their cream ale used to be my go-to cheap beer until I found this. $1 for a 24oz can at Kroger. Take that PBR!

A - Looks like an adjunct lager. what else can I say
S - Smells like an adjunct lager with a little metallic smell. Maybe its the can?
T/M - Actually not bad. Pretty solid for the price. Actually has a little more light malt flavor than a normal adjunct. Sure the rice is there too, but it's actually kinda pleasant.
O - See intro above..can't really say it better than that. Everyone should keep a few of these in stock for watching a game or whatever, when you just want a "beer".

Poured from a can into a snifter glass.

Look – light straw-like in color, clear, with about two and a half fingers’ worth of foam that dissipate somewhat slowly.

Smell – seems to be of cereal grains, but with maybe a slightly higher quality of selection.

Taste – interesting taste for this kind of beer. It seems to release a few more phenolic flavors than I would have thought.

Mouthfeel – it leans a little more toward the watery side.

Overall – not a bad beer, but not interesting at all either..
