I admit this is a sentimental choice, but most of you all never had this beer in Japan, and let me tell you... if you grew up in Tokyo you would rate it the same way. Sapporo will always hold an important place in my heart right next to my first love, my friends who are no longer with us, and string cheese.

"a little on the dry side, which works a little with the tight carbonation to improve the mouthfeel. otherwise, typical lager. goes pretty well with food, and isn’t nasty. 10/09-not quite as nice canned, or maybe it was a fluke..."

Free bottle in australia - made under license (Singapore? China? australia? ) boring lager, but at least has more body and malt flavour than many.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
650ml can poured in a chalice. A: Yellow to orange color with a huge and fluffy white head S: Not impressive. Smells like a bad Euro Lager. Like those that smells corn. Also malt and a bit of hops T: Not impressive. Rice and cereals, basically. The only point in favor is its reasonable bitter end M: Very light body and high carbonation D: Not bad. A light beer to drink very cold when it’s very hot :) [ BA Review @ 7/2/2010 ]

500 ml can from Canada, 4,7%. Although cans looks similar, this one is much better then 650 ml can. Clear golden color with medium white head. Aroma weak, mostly hops. Taste is ok, first little sour (rice maybe?), then ending with medium bitterness.

venom666 (362) - Alicante, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2014
Pale golden color with white persistent head. Regular lager, nothing to highlight. Corny, malty and grassy aroma. Flat taste, with the same hints than on the aroma and a moderate bitter aftertaste.
