Bottle. Clear golden body with a lasting white thick head. Mild grassy aroma with malts, taste of straw, dusty hops, faint bitterness with a thin body. Not very inspiring.

Canned, thanks to tkrjukoff. I think this is the beer we tried. Malty fruity aroma, vegetable notes, bready, some citrus. Malty watery flavor, fruity, some faint hop notes, some bread. Very thin and rather boring.

Translated to ’Sapporo development use beer’. New for Winter 2011. Darker pour than most pales, but certainly not an amber. A soft caramel nose. Quite bready and malt driven with a almost undetectable hop finish. A step up from most pales, but still pretty basic.

Huge thanks to my buddy Rob for bringing me this bottle back from the brewery! Pours a pale yellow/orange with a half inch white head. The aroma is fairly skunky, with sweetness in the back ground. The taste is bright and hoppy. Musty oily hops and sweet biscuity malt. Nice bitterness. The mouth feel is quite nice. Much better than what I was expecting from Sapporo.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub in Sapporo.
Unfiltered version. Appealing fruity and hoppy aroma. Fruitier and heartier than the filtered version. Smoother, mellower as well, with much more fruit flavor. A bit sweet, but not too much. Much better than the filtered. Medium to fuller body and full flavor. Not exceptional, but decent.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Clear gold, nose of bright pilsner malt and green sweet malts. The flavor is slightly bitter, a decent balanced lager, but still a zesty thin bodied, biscuity light beer. Called a pilsner, but it’s basically a pale lager.
