Can 0.5 l. Golden color, small-medium head. In aroma boring metal, grass profile. In flavor almost the same but with some grains/malt. Just boring.

I wasn’t a big fan of Sapporo until I tried this poor attempt at a brew. This isn’t any better than Miller or Bud so don’t spend the extra money.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2002
Mine says 5.5% ABV on the bottle. Pale straw clear with a large medium lasting fine bubbled off-white head. Faint sappy bitter hops aroma fading to bland nothing when warm. Very thin soda watery body and palate. Faint stale bitter and mild corn sweet flavours. Significantly less than ordinary.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2003
Almost no aroma. Light in colour, flavour and bitterness, and has no aftertaste. It is highly carbonated. Actually made under licence by Lion-Nathan, this is sort of an Australian version of a Japanese imitation of an American Standard.

haddon90 (1537) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Tasted like Bud Light. Light yellow color with no head. Some balance...but not much from the aroma or flavor. Won't get this again.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2005
So I’m sitting there drinking this and complaining. Saying how it tastes like a Budweiser but a little better. Then I’m reading the bottle and it’s saying how it’s monitered by the A-B brewmaster or something. Figures. No hops here really, some malt but basically another boring lager. Not offensive, less than enjoyable.

rlgk (12025) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2006
Light golden, small white head. Sweetish, malty aroma, some corn. Weak malty flavor, some fruit. Thin and boring.
