This is an average beer. I had it with Sushi last night. It is a bit on the light side, but tastes surprisingly like a typical American ale. Crisp, not too bitter, but a bit bland. Not too hoppy, which is a plus for this type of beer. I’ll ask for Sapporo Black next time instead.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Typical crystal clear Japanese Lager. A bit more gold color than Kirin. Foamy but short lived head. Good hop nose, average lager smell. Crisp feel but a sweet rice (no joke here) taste. Refreshing after 3 darker brews but not spectacular. It is quite good on tap and eases the pain of a tad too much wasabi with your sashimi. One of my regular brews while in Japan.

Comparable to a Bud, but more expensive. Weak, watery, typical canned swill, but not entirely undrinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 The can says 'Since 1876.' Budweiser was first brewed in 1876. Coincidence? I think not.

A little to simple to be great, but smooth and good mouthfeel, I like it.

Not a bad beer. Tastes like a lot of American beers. Very light in color. Slightly bitter. Did not hold a head at all. Its flavor and palate is average. The big plus for me in buying it was it is normally $18-19 a case. I got a rebate for $10 bucks back. At a price of $8.50 for the case, its like comparing it to Schlitz. So Sapporo is the hands down winner there.

Was a good compliment to Japanese food. More so for the cultural aspects than the taste. Sort of light, flavorless. Not horrible. A notch above the typical American Macro Swill.

Nice refreshing beer. Not a premium beer in my opinion. Should be classified with the rest of the domestics. Kinda like a premium Coors Light.(and we know that doesn’t exist)
