Canuckistani (41) - Dundas, Ontario, - DEC 6, 2007
(22 oz. can labelled "Sapporo Premium Beer", brewed in Canada) Unremarkable beer. Slightly bitter; hoppy rather than yeasty or grainy. Very light, practically lightly flavoured fizzy water. Better beers are out there. Not recommended; thankfully it wasn’t a six-pack. I have a whole 650 mL to go through. Pale and weak.

Skarecrow (165) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2016
650ml can (made of metal, not aluminium so quite retro). Aroma is slight malty grain. Poured light golden straw with OK head. Mild bitterness followed by a thin grainy finish. Meh.

Thullin187 (20) - Smyrna, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Skunky aroma up front, Slight hazy straw color with medium carbonation Typical typical skunky pale lager taste with some adjust qualities, a fizzy on the tongue finish from the very active carbonation.... overall not a bad beer definetely much better the asahi i just recently tried, but i think i might already be burned out on trying these asian wannabe import beers.

labeerinthum (510) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 5, 2016
Lattina. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č normale e la persistenza olfattiva č sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza, con bollicine medie. La consistenza del liquido č limpida. Il perlage ha bollicine fini. La carbonazione č media e persistente. Il colore č giallo dorato carico. Il corpo č medio. L’amaro č medio. L’intensitŕ gustativa č normale e la persistenza gustativa č sufficiente. Il gusto č piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale č dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto č di media intensitŕ. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di mollica di pane e fieno.

seritomi (358) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 27, 2016
Szalmasárga pezsdülő kevés habbal. Száraz furmintos illat minimális komló illattal. Meglepő mert elég jó ahhoz képest amire számítottam. Édesebb, mint amire a japán söröknél gondolunk elég alkoholos ha jobban leerjed nekem bejönne... híg sokat meg lehet inni belőle. Hai!!!

kaserov (105) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 24, 2016
No tiene apariencia de cerveza. No tiene cuerpo, no crea espuma, no sabe prácticamente a nada (esto se puede tomar hasta como algo positivo, ya que al menos no sabe abiertamente mal). Es como beber agua con una pizca mínima de gas, otro color y otro sabor. Como curiosidad, esta lata vacía pesa más que muchas latas llenas. No sé de qué material está hecha, pero parece que lleva hasta peso extra incluido.
