Brewed with carefully selected ingredients, Sapporo Classic is an eminently drinkable flavor extravagance.

Can. It’s Kolsch lite really. But it tastes fresh enough (no metallic tang at least). If they had just been a little braver and made it slightly hoppier and a tad sweeter it’d have been decent. It does however have no aroma of any sort, and is thin for the abv. Better than many mass produced lagers.

Only in Hokkaido you say? Score! Pretty clean, has a very touch of hop spice, not much bitterness. Basic, well-made for an industrial lager.

5%ABV. Lager Tapped out gold. 6şSRM. Nose is sour and beery. Mouthfeel is sudsy. Smooth and pleasing and very approachable in all the most pedestrian and safe ways I can describe the palate on a beer. This is the entire point behind national lagers like Sapporo. To this end, this beer is entirely successful and does it very very well. Palate has water biscuit. Sweet pale barley malt, maybe crystal malts. Just enough traditional hop to balance all this sweetness. Clean finish.

nausicaaonacids (50) - PORTUGAL - JAN 15, 2016
Average pils beer, golden color and light taste, light on alcohol as well. Had it both on bottle and can, not much difference.

Pours clear gold with small white head. Grain sweet nose. Flavor is much the same, with little to no hop. Finish is sweet.

Can from Ito Yokado. Drank straight from the can. Light grain and corn aromas. Fairly sweet on the palate with some light grain. Don’t get much malt or hop character. Light Kolsch-like fruit flavor on the finish. Kinda gross to be honest.

chibichan (3) - JAPAN - SEP 13, 2015 does not count
Sapporo Classic straight from the can in Akita, Japan. Crisp and light. Good as an after meal drink or cool down drink on a hot day. Easy to drink.

jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
A light and sweet beer, with almost no malt taste or hop character. The Sapporo we get in Mexico is made in Ontario, Canada. And it´s not a Rice Lager, but an American Adjunct Lager.

A little sweet, somewhat fizzy. Goes great washing down dinner, just like the maker suggests.

Clear yellow appearance, medium head. Hay aromas, semi dry. Good and refreshing Pale Lager.
