Another one that goes well with sushi, but not as well as Kirin. And this one is even worse as a stand alone beer. Thin, no head, watery. Refreshing, though, and not bad if itís hot out and you are thirsty.

650 ml Can: Lets be honest - the only really great thing about Sapporo Draft is that awesome can. Those things are nearly bulletproof. Good luck denting one... Anyway, basically this has nothing really special that sets it appart from any other American Style brew. As I busted open this double deuce, I was hit by a slightly aromatic floral scent - not sure what that was all about really. Anyway, pours probably one of the palest colors of yellow Iíve ever seen in a brew - definitely very poor. Retains a decent head for about 45-50 seconds after pouring, not that I poured it all out anyway - Had to go straight ghetto sipping it from the 22. Taste is thirst quenching, but not all that great really - middle of the road. Somewhere in between Aspen Edge and Beast. Not a flavour explosion for sure. Doesnít really seem to have an overly corny adjunct taste - seems to be 100% rice as expected. No weird aftertastes though, which leads me to think that this is along the same lines as most Japanese "Dry" beers. Lets face it - you really canít expect much from a American Style brew, even if it is Canadian....er.....Japanese. Will drink again when I hit up my next kegger and need a conversation piece for about 2 minutes.

well balanced beer with good carbonation. Taste of grainy corn hit 1st, followed by the sting from the hops. ends with grainy almost rice notes. Asolid brew overall.

Pale golden colour, large rocky head that fades leaving a bit of lace. Warty aroma, slightly sweet. Similar flavour with a bit of corn. Nothing special, but at least it isnít skunked.

Pours yellow with almost no head. Low flavor all around. Taste almost resembles a dortmunder. Poor.

Another Japanese recipe contract-brewed in North America. Similar to others Iíve tasted, this Japanese brew pours a light golden with a soapy white head. Aroma is light and slightly skunky, with hints of hops. Flavor is reminiscent of an American pale lager, only cleaner. Crisp and refreshing, and a good companion for food.

Compliments food well. I donít care for the after taste much, thatís why itís better than food.

Didnít know where to put this one, guess hereíll do. Bottled premium lager, brewed "under supervision of Sapporo" in the UK, 4.7%. Golden coloured, no head. Bit of malt in the aroma. Sharp, thirst quenching, standard lager taste, nothing special or particularly bad; which is strange because most foreign beers brewed under licence in the UK are shite.

I enjoyed drinking this beer. However, I donít feel that it had anything special that was worth taking note. It poured with a suprisingly thick head that dissapated quickly. It just wasnít anything special.
