2.55/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

24 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with an inch and a half white head. The head stays around a little while, and there's a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is all sweet malt and grain/corn. It tastes like sweet malt, grain/corn, and there's also a slight metallic taste. The warmer it gets, the more bitter tasting it is compared to the initial sweet malt flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's thin but not too watery. For the style of beer it is, it's not bad at all. It was on sale for $1 a can at the local Kroger, and at that price I can't complain at all. Actually, at that price it was the only reason I bought it. And for just $1, I'd buy it again.

Poured from 24 ounce can

A- Clear straw yellow in color with very soapy white head.

S- Mostly smells of grain and sweet corn, somewhat sour smell.

T- Much like the smell, grains and sweet corn, very mild bitterness at end.

M- Pretty light and fairly carbonated.

O- Ok beer. Not much to it though, maybe sweeter than most lagers. May buy again since it is so cheap ($1) and is fairly drinkable.

2.65/5  rDev -8%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 1 | overall: 2.5

poured into a nonic

appearance: pours a pale goldish color. Started out with a big fluffy carbonated head but dissipated shortly thereafter into nothing. Display of carbonation is plentiful.

Smell: mostly just sweet adjuncts reminiscent of creamed corn and a vague hint of a floral hop presence

Taste: again back to mostly sweet grains. taste is pretty typical of this style. nothing special here.

Mouthfeel: not too pleasant. Very thin. carbonation that leaves a metallic stinginess behind.

Stomachfeel: not very good. As usual with most adjunct lagers, this one's not settling too well with me. Make sure you eat a well balance meal before drinking this one.

Overall: Just another typical macro brew. Dirt cheap beer. Got it for a $1.50 at the local Kroger.

Cheers! Enjoy!

Pale golden hue with a bright white highly carbonated head dwindles pretty quickly, these beers visually stuck out at the local Kroger amongst other 24 ounce cans as something I've never seen that isn't an alcohopop or spiked lemonade tea or Jeremiah Weed product. Aroma has a harsh cooked veggies smell with hint of metallic note about it, not much in the way of hops this is fizzy yellow lager. Flavor attempts to be unoffensive I'm not sure it succeeds though, cereal grains/cooked veggies corn and rice not much malted barley breadiness going on. Mouthfeel is harsh a bit of gag reflux inducing textures with creamed corn, and rough carbonation it really sticks around and makes the whole experience a bad one. Like I said before these pseudo market brand companies need to find a new business, make some energy drinks or something because these knock off contract brewed beers are pretty bad...why in the hell would Kroger offer this amongst a decent selection of other macros and smaller and mid sized craft breweries.

3.6/5  rDev +25%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours with a big, fluffy head that dissolves rather rapidly. Aromas of sweet grain and yeast. Very sweet flavor. Tastes of sugary bread and grains. Not an unpleasant taste, but a little too sweet for my liking. Tastes pretty good for an adjunct lager, and is one of the cheapest cans in the tall boy cooler. Has very cool packaging too.

2.23/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark golden color with a good deal of thin head with holes in it. Carbonation bubbles are obvious. Smells grainy and musty. Taste is grains and corn; a little sweet but mostly just a bad bitter beer. Very carbonated lending to a light mouthfeel.

This is not a good beer! Cheap as hell though.

Port Republic from BrewMasters Choice Rochester NY, strait out of the blue 24oz can. Smells of light adjuncts and cereal, no hop to speak of. Tastes very clean, with a slight lingering bitterness that isn't pronounced in many beers of this style. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, and is very pleasant. For a 24oz can of swill that cost $1, I'd buy another any day. A good beer for beating the Georgia heat! Cheers!
