The colour is clear, bright yellow. The foam, made of big bubbles dissolves quickly into a thin lid. The smell is mild and dry with notes of corn and pilsner-malt. The carbonation is strong, but not too strong, it is very refreshing. The taste is quite mild, malty and dry with a touch of diacetyl. The aftertaste is somewhat sweet (from the corn) with a tone of wheat flour. I think this is a pleasant thirst-quenching brew. Uncomplex? Yes, but I think it is a good quality adjunct beer (both corn and rice). This is probably a good selection for really hot Asian food. The particular bottle that I am reviewing was brewed under license in the Czech Republic.

From can. Actually the largest can ever in the history of cans I think. I mean this is really a 1 liter monster. This seems to be the japanese equivalent of budweiser. Not bad, but not good

Golden and heavily carbonated are the first things that come to mind. A tad watery and malty but nothing too significant to suggest. An ok accompaniment to sushi.

Pretty good with food, much in the same way that a lot of beers are which are from the far east. Golden, light and not too interesting

BIG ASSED CAN@!(cant believe I paid $3 for this...) Aroma is sweet, corny and somewhat skunky. Transparent pale blone with a small white head that hangs around a bit. Kind of peppery/carbonated. Sweet maltiness in the middle. Small hops to finish. Rather bland and somewhat watery, but I have had worse.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2004
Bottle Small, creamy, white head, which disappears mostly. Spare lace. Flat, yellow body. Nose of hops. Average carbonation. Lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Pale yellow color with fizzy white head. Reminds me a lot of a dryer version of a coors. Very lacking in actual flavor and the dryness gets rid of any refreshment value. Wish I would have ordered something else.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2004
Golden color with a white head. The taste is water with notes of rice or light malt. Very thin and boring.

Pretty boring stuff without any fo the kick of Sapporo. This is kind of the Budweiser of Japan.

GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 28, 2004
moderate wheaty aroma, white head dissipates and the straw colored body seems flat. i’d say watery over "refreshing," basically my father who ordered this over lunch today ended up ordering something else.
