very pale yellow with a lasting but small head, smells like, rice, very faint lemon, almost no smell. taste is quite bitter, dry, clean alcohol taste and a tiny bit of malt. palate is a degree below BMC carbonation. sapporo is very clean and empty tasting, but pretty faultless. i guess i prefer it to BMC

chinchill (1796) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sapporo 22 oz can consumed in Redwoods Park. Clear amber;body with a good white head; excellent lacing. Aroma: that mixes sweet baked grains with herbal/floral hops. Flavor: Mild hop flavor dominates. Floral and fruity. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Feel: Lively medium-high carbonation. Light, watery body. O: disappointing.

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.

Una lager industrial con el típico aroma a verdura cocida, de comienzo dulce y final ligeramente amargo. Una más.

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.
