Slightly better than its counterpart Asahi, but not much. Still tastes horribly like water, has little body, and is unappetizing. Only the body and appearance give it an edge in my opinion. Quite dissatisfied.

Utterly flavourless, but at least smooth. Not as industrial as Kirin, but that’s not saying a lot. Lightly malty palate. At least it’s not sweet.

Not impressed. At least Bud is easy drinking. This was anything but smooth.

WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2002
I have yet to taste a jap beer that has any kind of balls, and Sapporo most certainly its not one of them. Very light beer with a bland after taste, the can is cool but I have to draw the line there.

Theres a reason the Japanese arent known for there beer. This is Japanese Bud, maybe a tad more flavorfull, but not as smooth. Dont like it.

I suppose I’d rather drink this than <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= Light or even <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= but it’s still a very dull, characterless beer.

Japanese Budweiser. Well, not quite that bad but the cost-quality ratio is

light gold in color. Head quickly dissapates into a slight bubbly rim around the glass. Smell is faint, slightly grass like. Tastes bitter all the way around. Pretty bad brew but if someone held a gun to my head and made me choose, I’d pick this over a bud, coors, or miller.
