BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2012
This is one of the more flavorful "light" beers that I have tried and it’s still crisp and almost flavorlessly clean on the finish. The carbonation didn’t seem as over the top as most American versions either.

Pours straw with wet notes of malt. Light notes of malt appear to be watered down. Easy drinking finish.

Barreras (1265) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a lucent yellow white little to no corn aroma. Taste is very light, almost watery no complexity to it. Light corn taste that goes away quickly.

unclemike (2547) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 9, 2012
beer poured a pale yellow color with a very large white head. The aroma was sour, skunky and corny. The flavor was dryish, bitter and had moderate notes of cardboard and skunk. Short and dry finis

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) near clear as water, ring of fine white bubbles. Nose of skunk, corn, a bit old, marshmallow and vomit. Taste is watery, marshmallow, skunk, metallic, gross.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 Low in calories, check. Low in carbohydrates, check. Gentle, smooth, and elegant in flavor, double check. Sapporo Light represents the most advanced evolution of light beer. Highly recomended.

A: The beer pours a clear, pale straw color with a finger of white head. S: Definitely heavy on the rice. Very light nose with a strong adjunct aroma and very little malt to it. Not much hops to it, perhaps a little bit of grass and some light skunk. Almost all rice. T: Slightly tangy, strangely. Lots of rice, in fact, that’s pretty much what it tastes like. A hint of white grape, grass, and a light vegetal character. Not terribly good (shockingly). M: Very light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Regular Sapporo is definitely preferable to this. But, it does it’s job as a light lager.

If it looks like urine, tastes like urine, and smells like grass, well its probably urine after having eaten asparagus. Not my favorite.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a clear yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of urine, grass, and lemon zest. Flavor of grain, skunk, and grass with a dry, somewhat bitter finish.
