Special Honduran Beer World Cup Update!

Only a few days ago, I featured Honduras as the country of choice, and while I had never had a beer from there, I found a blog describing several beers from Hondurans largest brewery.  In particular, they described the Port Royal Export beer as Honduran Michelob.  Now, it's been years since I've had a Michelob, but I happened to be at Mellow Mushroom last night... and lo and behold they had this Port Royal Export beer on the menu! 

To sum it up... we're dealing with a slight step above the big adjunct lagers.  There is still a little corn flavor, but overall the taste is bigger and more fulfilling than something like a Bud Light.  So if you think Michelob is a step up from Bud Light, then the comparison is probably pretty close to spot-on.  I wouldn't turn down another one of these, but I'm not going to seek it out either!

So, happy drinking!  And check back later today for the post about New Zealand!
