Bottled. Pours clear golden. Medium carbonation. Wheaty and bitter. Not as good as regular.

OMG this is terrible. Watery and metallic, virtually no hops or body. Industrial.

Fair to say this is an easy favorite light beer. Aroma is malt, rice, dry grain, corn. Pour is still clear low carbonation gold. Decent beer flavor, crisp, calm, evenly balanced. Light on the alcohol.

Stolen from law school: pours pale and white head. Aroma is rice and frain. Taste is very mild, but there are really no off tastes there. Didnt even taste too kuch like a light beer.

A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer. Not much carbonation or head but a rather lively beer.

Not bad with sushi :) Can that be all? Actually, per style, it really wasn’t bad, I’m just not a light ale kinda guy, except for the hoppy session ipas that have been popping up recently. This is a reasonable quality light lager...lawnmower beer at best...though I’d still prefer All Day IPA."

Bottle from Seafood Cty: Poured a sparkling golden blonde liquid with a soft foam head which quickly breaks down into a thin film covering. Aroma was faint but did have the same quality smell of malts that the regular Sapporo beer does have which is good sign considering this is a light beer. The drink is crisp and refreshing and taste nearly identical to the original Sapporo recipe and I must say this is one of the better light beers I have come across in the vast offerings of piss water Light/LITE beers in the market.

Sapporo Light has a thin, white head, a somewhat hazy, bubbly straw appearance, and a bit of spider web lacing left behind. The aroma is quite rich and pungent, with sweet, biscuit malt and grass. The flavor, however, is watered down. One will detect a slight hop bitterness and a touch of grain husk. Mouthfeel is not as light a usual, and one will experience a pleasant body, here. Sapporo Light finishes mostly dry, crisp, and refreshing. Yes, it is a rather dull, light beer, but in the style, it is much better than usual. RJT
