Very average - but a little better than Bud or Miller. Horrible piss yellow appearance, not much in the way of aroma or taste. Not horrible - but nothing to write home about.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Average in every way. Fizzy yellow, no particular off or bad flavors, nothing distinctive. Inoffensive, probably your best bet at a Japanese resturant.

Sweet lemon and wheat lager nose. Clear medium yellow with no head. Good carbonation, some light lemon flavor, but bland and a little skunky towards the end.

This is the Japs attempt at muddling with beer by cold filtering. Let's go spend big on German hops and Belgium malt, then stuff it up. It's nicely dressed up and well presented but you know it's all false under the hood.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow, fizzy, thin, sweet, lacking hops, pretty unpleasant overall. Yawn.

Doughy, very slightly dishwatery aroma. Reminds me of maize and cardboard really, beers get no duller than that.
Not too bad looking, yellowy golden. Flavour continues on the lines of maize and cardboard, rice maybe?
Sorry to say, but this shows how beer should not be made.

Im not going to lie. I bought this beer because of the shap of the can and the fact it was from japan. Thats about all i can say. I felt like i was drinking stale bud. this is one beer that can stay over there.

Decen head with good carbonation. Medium gold in color. Aroma is bland with some malts. Thats about it. Flavor is thin and without merit. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Hmmmm, a Japanese beer brewed in Cananda and imported to the US. Not very optomistic.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bought in the 22 oz strange shaped silver can.."Brewed and canned by Sapporo breweries Tokyo,Japan"
Pours a nice yellow, very crystal clear, small head which miraculously lingers long.Nice carbonation strings.
mmm very macro aroma, load of cheap malts and other rather sickly sweet smells, not good at all.
Tastes very thin and watery , this taste is very very subdued.There is a bitterness but not what I would consider a good hop bitterness, hasa slight "chemical" solvent taste yuk
Very average macro feel in the mouth, this could be Budweiser..thin and over carbonated.
Its drinkable, i suppose,. if you are dieing of thirst..I wasn't!
I was not impressed with this beer one bit. It's overpriced but I can see this would be popular with the Bud drinking masses.
I could not even finish the can , I poured a full half of this beer down the sink..forgive me Beer Gods!
