Horrible brew from Japan, I guess this is their version of Bud, pissy light yellow color, very little head, smelled skunky, tasted pretty much like bubbly water, I’m glad I had the chance to buy only a single can of this crap

Clear yellow. Small frothy white head. Light carbonation. Crisp aroma, some notes of adjuncts and husky malts. Faint sulfur. Sharp, carbonated mouthfeel followed by a husky sweet aftertaste. Mineral notes. Abrasive and rough. Mildly bitter. Zero hop aroma and flavor. Hops? We don’t need no stinking hops. Quenching and refreshing, but so is H2O. Flavor fades and this becomes even more boring and uninteresting. Stripped of flavor and character. Why don’t they just sell this in brown, wide mouthed, plastic bottles and label it ’Miller Lite, Osaka Style’. The phrase on the bottle ’Cold filtered and pure filled’ should’ve been a clue. What the hell is ’pure filled’?

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.

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.
