Sapporo went down smooth but with not much flavor. A bit more than some beers of this class. Not offensive but I wouldn't buy it again. Taste similar to Budweiser.

light to medium golden...nice foamy white head though...too bad the flavor is all cardboard with mild floral and fruity notes. this beer almost tastes like a flour tortilla with nothing else. just not good stuff.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2004
(tall can with widget) Pale yellow with very little head. Hint of citrus as noted. Fairly smooth and crisp with no "off" flavors

raymow (1011) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2004
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.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Average in every way. Fizzy yellow, no particular off or bad flavors, nothing distinctive. Inoffensive, probably your best bet at a Japanese resturant.

3fourths (8554) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2004
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.

Yellow, fizzy, thin, sweet, lacking hops, pretty unpleasant overall. Yawn.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2003
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.
