LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Poured from a 22oz. can that was brewed in Canada. Clear, pale gold, decent white head. Faint metallic aroma behind a nose of a German-style pilsner. Rather bland tasting; almost as bad as Bud. Not horrid, but very little flavor. This is only the second time I’ve had Sapporo (the first was over 20 years ago), and it is the last time I pay for it.

The typical Sapporo that you get here at a Japanese restaurant. I revisited Kirin recently and wan’t impressed at all. This is slightly better, but still a bland forgetable pale lager however you look at it. Does have some mild hops to give it a near pilsner-like feel. Make sure it’s really cold though if sampling!

tfontana (83) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Can. Aroma is bready malts without much complexity. Appearance is clear pale yellow with slight sparkle and frothy 1 finger-width head with poor retention but decent lacing. Taste is straight up the middle moderate sweet. Palate is light to medium bodied with a bit of a slick texture, minimal carbonation and pretty abrupt finish. Overall, better than macro domestics but there’s pretty much no reason to drink this other than in an Asian restaurant to pair with the Asian cuisine/experience.

ametras (690) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
On tap. Clear pale golden with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, honeyed cereals and citrus with herbal and fruity notes. Light body, good carbonation, slick texture.

cervmagpt (359) - PORTUGAL - MAY 28, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 (style 2A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4257G0005. AROMA: slight sweet corn aroma with less rice notes. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: pale gold color and translucent. medium moussy white head with good retention. TASTE: initial malty and corny sweet flavour. medium-low bitterness with a medium-dry and slightly bitter finish. PALATE: light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: another pale lager from Japan but made in the EU.

drtth (16) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Light, gentle flavors and aromas with some floral grassy character and the dry finish I’d expect with the use of rice in the brewing. Would make a great combination with food in a traditional Japanese restaurant.

vuky (4) - LIVERPOOL, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2015 does not count
like to describe this as Japanese guinness. While it’s not as full bodied and flavorful, it’s certainly smooth, easy to drink and pretty tasty.love it ,one the best.

rikstar (1243) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
0,33l fles in amsterdam bij de ah. Goudgeel smaak en geur met een degelijke moutbasis. Zeker geen verkeerd pils

Bottle, pours golden with a white head. Soft and sweet. Yet another unremarkable industrial lager.
