Pleasant malty sweet aroma, weak body -- think carbonated water sweetened with malt and a trace of hops, and you’ve probably got a pretty good idea of this beer.

I couldn’t pick this out in a blind taste test with Kirin Ichiban. Are there any really good Japanese beers out there? Yellow, fizzy, and weak.

Like some of the other comments on this beer - I think this tastes like a typical American Standard. However - I don’t think that’s a good thing. This is over carbonated, thin tasting & overwhelmingly average.

Good beer. Tastes like many of the American Standards. You know, I’ve really begun to appreciate the Japanese beers I’ve had.

I will get tanked off this stuff any day...it’s as good a drinkin beer as any.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - APR 28, 2002
Clear,pale yellow. Thin head and lace. Nose is peppery with underlying subtle soft malt and filler. Watery and bland, has something in there that resembles flavor, might be the yeast giving a slight ’fruity’ tone. Thats all folks.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2002
Slight hoppy smell. Clear golden, small head. Bitter, nice after taste. Smooth, pleasant. Average.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2002
Not at all bad. Good bitterness, prefer it to some lagers that go for a fake sweetness.

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2002
Fizzy yellow water w. a few hops for aroma and a touch of bitterness. Impossible to drink w/o food, water would be more satisfying. Its an acceptable accompaniment to a Korean or Japanese meal when nothing better is available.

Not the worst beer, but pretty disappointing given the unusual packing scheme. Brewed with rice as a grain, it’s no surprise this lager’s so tasteless. Highly drinkable b/c it’s so tasteless, Sapporo’s pretty much just a more expensive version of a light american beer (bud, etc.).
