I really only use this beer as a palate cleanser between pieces of sushi. It doesnít have a bad taste, just a lack of any real complexity of taste. Iíve had much worse and canít say this is a bad beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Again in their crazy can and again with a froth soapy head. For a lager, its drinkable. Really light yellow color. Smell is disgusting, but it tastes ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours yellow with a small white head.
Aromas include sweet malt and corn, with a touch of citrus. Taste is rather bland, start sweet, and the hops kick in near the end. The slight citrus aroma continues in the taste. Not bad at all, better than a lot of other mass produced beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I enjoyed this one. The hops had a slight sharpness about it. A well mixed clean flavour, but could do with more depth.

I had a 22ozíer of this as I was eating some tasty Sushi and a Filet Mignon. This beer pours a brilliantly clear straw color and it topped by a frothy pale white head. When this beer first hits my lips it has a spicy almost gingery hotness to it that quickly leads to a sweet grain character in the middle of this beer. The finish is still sweet with a bit of sharpness from the hops. This was a great palate refresher in between bites of sushi, pickled ginger, and filet. I must say that this beer worked out quite well, and I think that my review of this beer reflects the fact that had I had this beer on its own I would not have enjoyed it nearly as much.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow with a good size white head that
quickly dissipated. Mildly sweet malt aroma. Light malt flavor with a kind of
corn syrup sweetness. Very little hops

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I could blame the can, or maybe this sample was less than fresh, but here goes, my experience with Sapporo-in-a-can...
Clear, pale golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma actually reeks of adjuncts, definitely smells of corniness. Dry, mineraly, notes of straw and grain, and slight sweet undertones. Mouthfeel is rough and unpleasant. Each sip draws my face into a wince, and thatís definitely not a good sign. Very hollow, with finish I can only describe as obnoxious. An unexpected, and bizarre blast of heat comes through, adding to what amounts to an extraordinarily unpleasant beer drinking experience.
22oz. can, which I had to dump not halfway through. I didnít have this much trial when Iíd consumed the bottled version!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bitter malty taste, floral aroma very well hidden under a yeasty top note. Better than the last few japanese lagers I have had.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very carbonated yellow brew with a small white head, this has a mild aroma that lets you know barley malt isnít the only grain here... probably corn and rice, judging by the color. Not bad with a meal. Iíve had it many a time at the local sushi bar.
