1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can: Pours a golden pale color with light head, which goes down quick. A squalid nose with some light toast and a quickly disappointing hop and grassy chemical note. The flavor is sharp, not bitter or hoppy, just chemically and dry, lots of adjuncts and corn. Bah! Happoshu.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another new macroswill from Sapporo. Clear, pale gold color with a white head, active carbonation (Gee surprise surprise) Scent of sour wet hay, taste, typical bland macro, light sweetness in the front, slight metallic tang in the middle, quick finish with a touch of dry grass and spice/cigar tobacco hop in the aftertaste. *Yawn* Why can’t they make beers with some flavor?
