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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-29-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter amber/deep straw color with a two finger pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to give a nice level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of rice. Mixed with these are some grainy smells as well as a grassy smell. Taste – The taste begins with flavors of rice and bready flavors. A light caramel flavor joins the taste up front. Mixed with the caramel is a paper and slightly grassy flavor. Toward the end of the taste, a sweeter flavor of a citrus and more grass flavor come to the tongue. In the end a rather odd papery, grassy, rice/malt flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. While both make it more refreshing, it is nothing really special. Overall – Ah nothing too hot. I would not frequent this one.

Monchito_IPA (136) - SPAIN - AUG 17, 2014
Una lager industrial con el típico aroma a verdura cocida, de comienzo dulce y final ligeramente amargo. Una más.

kevinsenn (1055) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Malty funky slightly sour hay aroma. Clear pale yellow. Taste is not too bad; creamy and malty sweet. Sweet grassy aftertaste. A little flat.

DocJitsu (901) - Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a clear classic golden with a short white head. Corn and green grape nose. Full body, slick texture with some carbonation bite. Taste approximates the nose. Decent.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2014
330ml bottle. I didn’t mind this. No special effects or complexities to unearth but, for a pale lager, it provided what I’d expect plus a little more. Fine lemon citrus - both juice and pith - with some grain notes and a subtle malt sweetness. Light, fresh and balanced with a modest intensity bitterness of adequate length. Light to medium body, medium carbonation on a firm mouthfeel.

Gewoon pilsbiertje waar niet veel smaak aan is. Dan zijn er veel betere dan dit. Jammer

BierMeHoos (83) - Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Big can. Clear gold color with a big fluffy white head, neutral nose. Aroma: mild grains and bread, short finish, with a strange leftover of green cheese. Taste sweetish with some metallic bitterness. Carbonated, light to medium body. Otherwise quite crisp but not tasty. Not a great beer.
