Grzesiek79 (3178) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
650 ml Can. Dosc nietypowa puszka dosc mocne aluminium i trwale. Ladnie sie prezentuje, piwo po nalaniu rowniez zlocisto zoltawe, ze srednia piana ale dosc trwala nawet. Aromat niebardzo wyczuwalny taki obojetny. W smaku lekko metaliczne i plastikowy posmak delikatnie slodowy. Na szczescie tu slodu kukurydzianego badz skrobi nie wyczuwalem. Ogolnie przecietne piwo ale ta niesamowita puszka ratuje nieco sytuacje w ocenie tego piwa

greenclansman (782) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUL 9, 2014
Clear golden color. Aromas of bread and grain. Grainy taste as well, not much on bitterness. Very limited aftertaste. Its not a bad bad beer but for sure nothing to keep in mind.

veceo (427) - CROATIA - JUL 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 Bought this as Sapporo Imported: can, ABV: 5%. Clear golden color, average sized white head. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Body is light and texture is watery. Aroma of malt, rice, surprisingly hoppy. Very pleasant light sweet and light bitter taste. Surprisingly drinkable.

Jankes (37) - Krakow, POLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Jasnozłoty, słomkowy wręcz kolor, uboga piana, Słaby, słodowy aromat. W smaku słodowość i wodnistość przechodząca w lekką kwaskowość, być może spowodowaną zbyt dużą zawartością co2, które chwilami aż szczypie w język. Bardzo lekkie piwo, niczym się nie wyróznia, nie ma też większych wad poza wspomnianym zbyt dużym, w mojej opinnii, wysyceniem.

HammerTroll (410) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Sapporo Draft Beer / Premium Beer: Clear yellow color with medium sized white head. Well carbonated. Aroma is malt, traces of hoppy bitterness. Thin body, but not watery as pale lager usually are. Nice and easy to drink. Best pale lager so far.
(Lidl 0,65l can)

Sapporo Premium Beer (A): Don’t know why this one is "aliased", but the taste is very different than the one from a can. More corny and malty, more sour and all in all, worse. Even ABV is different. Bottled one has 4,7% while can has 4,9% ABV...
Total score: 1.3
Aroma: 2, App: 2, Taste: 2, Palate: 1, Overall: 6.

Bottle. Aroma is faint with grain. Taste has grain and malt. Bitterish aftertaste. A basic lager with not much to offer.

AJDrive (1) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014 does not count
Tried this beer every way possible, canadian can, japan can, bottle, on tap. Firat thing, this beer was ment to be drink from the vessel it was put in. The japan can however is the best version of this beer. Not bad at all, sweet, not much hop at all, notes of corn, very drinkable. Nice and dry, pairs nice with a light lunch, chicken or fish. Little or no aftertaste. Good beer, not meant to be driken icy cold as it loses a lot of it nice flavors and takes on a carboard aftertaste. Japan can is far surperior than the standard can.

Aroma is pretty generic adjunct lager. A little better than your average American adjunct but not by a far mark. Pale color, practically see through. Head and lacing is quite nice actually. Aroma and flavor are kinda light, corn. Pretty flavorless. Kinda like seltzer really. Refreshing on a summer day.
