Sapporo was a pleasant surprise to not only my tongue but also my wallet. An affordable import, this has a nice aroma with floral hops and some slight corn flavoring, while the mild appearance makes it look even more appealing, the taste was medium bitter, while the palate was of a full body.

Reviewing the regular white cans sold inside Japan, the "black label." Very standard stuff, but nice sharp carbonation and full alcohol taste sets it above its mainstream peers from the other brewers.

bartlebier (2069) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
33cl bottle, local Asiamarkt. Clean, near-crisp rice?-filtered maltiness in aroma merges into more creamy malts and a whisp of gentle hops. Not bad, leaving not too off an aftertaste. Generic non-offensive adjunct maltiness prevails, though.

mmahut (1192) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 25, 2015
Can. Pours in clear pale body with high froasty heas. Aroma is pretty bad grainy, hay. Taste has medium to high grainy sweetness, low earthy bitterness. Pretty bad. Body is full, high carbonation. Very unbalanced.

TedE (122) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2015
650ml can into glass. Can says’Made in Vietnam’. Hmmmmm.. Nose is corn, rice, malt. Golden amber with small off white head. A few bubbles. Tastes like weak watery vegetables. Finish is a mish-mash of sickly sweet malt and distant metallic hops.

ChrisSc (290) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2015
On tap into glass. Pours golden. Pretty much clear. Smells of hay, I guess. No real flavor. Very refreshing, not interesting at all.

Cuso (5201) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 18, 2015
650 ml can from Seoul plaza, Bratislava. Light golden color with huge white head. sweet corny aroma with wet mop, yeast, metallic notes. Ugly malty taste with wet mop, vomit, light bitterness in finish. Well, very ugly beer.

Oldschool_Mike (108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Can into lager glass. Pours a clear straw yellow. Aroma is bready with a touch of sulfur. Taste is bready as well with bubbly carbonation. Decent lager. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
