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

canned. pale golden, fizzy, faint apple tang but otherwise pretty indiscernible from their other 5% lager offerings

Dredd (701) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2008
Fairly benign macro brew. Slight cardboard nose, corn flavours, slight fizz with a slight bitter finish. very easy drinking.

Can brought from Hokkaido, Japan by a friend. The beer says it is only available in Hokkaido, but others seem to have got it in the US. Either way, itís a decent lager; smooth and crisp. Drinkable, but not amazing. Glad I had it, thank you Masaki San.

This was slightly better than I expected. It had been awhile since I had a Sapporo and I canít say Im going to rush out again but better than Budwiser and for a watery light beer it was just fine. Not a ton of flavour.

its a very good beer, alot better then expected, very fruity taste that goes down smooth. Looked and smelled like budweiser but was much better then it in flavor and palate!

Descent beer. Really good with sushi. Itís pretty light, not heavy on the stomach. Winter beer.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 This is decent for what it is and fairly typical, but not bad. It is light and rather bland with little depth and a thin aroma. However, it is moderately balanced with a touch of both sweetness and bitterness, has some flavour, and it is drinkable.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Can: Sapporo classic, kurashitsuku, seems good. Some light malt and hop in the nose, very light malt and alcohol in the flavor and finish. Seems basic enough, canít hold the freshness for me. Meh.

Iím not sure what a Sake Bomb is, but Iím afraid. This beer has no taste, no aroma, and is only slightly sweeter than tap water. Highly carbonated though, so itíll settle your stomach when mixed with some bitters.

Another crisp pale lager that has a slight malt characteristic. Iíd never seek out this beer, except during sake bombing.
