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.

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!

This is an average lager. $1 for 1 24oz can. Works for me.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

$1 for a 24 oz can, on sale at Kroger.

Pours a very light yellow, with a frothy white head that sticks around. Smell is sweet with some malty notes. The taste is minimal, not as potent as the smell, a sweet lager with the malt flavor, a hint of barley at the end. The mouthfeel is the biggest miss on this beer, it is very light and watery. Overall a drinkable lager for the style. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and was happy to spend the dollar to try this beer. Even though it does not have much flavor, what it does have is not bad. Compared against others in this style I would much prefer this over the other macros. This seems like it would be great on a hot day, but if you are looking for flavor or a complex beer, this is not it.

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!

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!
