2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma and appearance are on par with macro swill. The palate is a little better than I expected, but the aftertaste was quite dry and grassy. Not preferable for me.

Orangeish yellow and clear with a small head. Aroma is honey on toast with a side of sweaty taint. Flavor is bland and a tad sweet. Iíd say this is better than most pale lagers, which isnít saying much.

Grainy malts with some adjunct, not much hops, overly carbonated. It went down OK, but this isnít something Iíd really ever seek out again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft from Hanaoka Sushi: Poured a clear light gold color liquid with a fat cap of foam head which sticks around longer than most any other malt liquor. Aroma is of the typical adjuncts but something about Japanese beers smell much better than other lagers or malt liquors. The flavor is mild with only a minor notice of the adjuncts such as rice used but this is a crisp clean beer that is easily quaffable when extra cold or eating with sushi Ėyummy.

Come on guys! Why the low scores? If youíve ever been to Japan, then you know that there is nothing better than an ice cold Sapporo while eating sushi. There is a time and place for every (well not every) beer, and Sapporo and sushi is one of those.

Tall can pour at sushi bar is bright yellow with thin white soda head. Not much happening here: taste is sugary cornflakes drowned in old water in a tin can. Would make a nice breakfast treat on a Monday.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle, Japan. This is a northern Japanese beer, but like most popular beers in Japan, it is fizzy, has a sharp carbonation bite, and is light and lacking in character. You will find the usual corn/rice and metallic flavors in this proletariat beer, and you definitely want to drink it while itís very cold. Itís not a very good beer by any means, but it can be quite refreshing while cold, and it has less offensive flavors than American analogues such as Budweiser or Miller. Overall, a mediocre beer that is still beer and thus desirable, and much less offensive than a Budweiser/et cetera. If you canít enjoy this beer with your katsu or yakisoba, youíre probably a real cynical loser anyways, so who cares?

I guess it doesnít matter where they make this beer in the world, it pretty much tastes the same.
