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

Not even beer as I understand the definition, this appalling dishwater has made many attempt to endear itself (who remembers the ’whole can top ringpull’ of the nineties?) without much impact. Cloying, overly sweet, overly malty with a fat, flabby finish that qualifies it neither as a quaffer or a compliment to any known cuisine. Piss.

Bottle. Pours and smells kind of bitter, malty, cereal. Not much in head bit fizzy. Its ok beer nothing special I would rather have saki if I were eating at an asian food place.

Crisp. Excellent served ice cold while eating sushi. Almost tastes similar to a pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Tin in Japanese restaurant. A tiny bit of malt in the aroma. A tiny bit of hop in the finish. Thin body, Thin mouthfeel. Overwhelmed by plain white rice.

Psytron (1631) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
A watered-down version of Finnish lager, basically... (This beer rating was imported from FB and unfortunately lacks any further comments.)

Sammer (1096) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Typical pale lager. Light and watery, with mild tastes of malt, hay and skunk. Not horrible, but far from great.

Has a weird slunk scent and taste, rather different lager taste than I am use to.

Aroma’s pleasantly grainy and sweet. Nice dirty blondish hue from the glass. Soft and clean on the palate. There’s absolutely no tail. Very clean finish. Delicate body. Never get tired of drinking it. If you are looking for a good beer to binge on, the Sapporo Classic is it. N.B. the Classic can only be purchased in Hokkaido, not the mainland of Japan. I’m surprised to read stories from people who have tried this beer because I don’t know how they were able to get their hands on it. Most Tokyoites have never even tried the Classic.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2011 Can. One of the best Japanese beers I’ve tasted. The flavour is mildly sweet, the aroma is subtle and inviting. This beer is only sold in Hokkaido.
