Slightly skunky aroma Pale Golden, ok head. Taste like cooled pasta water (a bit salt would actually improve it). thin like a wafer thin mint. Now I have an idea how beer-starved my friends visiting Nippon must have been :-)

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Light hoppy initial aroma but then it went away - rubbery. Light gold-yellow with white foamy head, laces. Fizzy carb and medium-heavy watery body. Hoppy, ascerbic bitterness and industrial, adjuncty flavor. Not very appealing and kind of weak.

slinkymello (137) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Well... it actually had some flavor, which doesn’t really say much, but is quite true. It’s just a better bodied bud; that american standard taste(or lack of) in full effect, and only just a little bit better

007lund (92) - Ann Arbor, USA - JAN 5, 2003
A very average beer. A bit better than say, a Bud. Nice, golden color. Decent head, plain aroma. Palate was not complex at all. Run of the mill pilsener.

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2003
A golden beer with an OK head. The aroma is very faintly malty. The flavor is slightly malt sweet with a nice bitterness - nice balance. A standard pilsener - OK for a japanese beer.

BillKismet (3341) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Generously given a 3 for appearance with its tan body and frothy head. The aroma is of subtle malts with whiskers of corn? and wheat? The flavor is lightly malty though somewhat stale. An easy drinking Japanese lager that should not offend the senses.

My bad Sapporo Haiku rating: Fizzy yellow beer Troubles my drinking glasses Time to pour it out

It seems that most Asian beers pale in comparison to their European cousins. Sapporo is just evidence of a decent try yielding a mediocre result. Unimpressive head and flavor. I’d rather have Sapporo in my fridge than Budweiser, but considering the price charged for imported beer, you can certainly get something better.
