Bottled, whilst in NYC. Extraordinarily poor beer. Possibly defining itsí own category, the íSuper Lightí category. Pale yellow, light on everything.

really not that bad, has a decent light hop addition to complement the light malts and probably the use of corn syrup or rice. But still better than most light amderican beers.

Lacks the body that regular sapporo has. This light beats the american light beers anyday. It has a light amber color and light carbonation.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear dark golden color with a small foamy alabaster head that gradually dissolves. Aroma is of light sweet malts and grass. Taste is of light sweet malts with hints of yeast and mild hops. Watery texture, smooth and mildly carbonated. Ending is malty and watery with a slightly sour aftertaste.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Bottle: Pours a light yellow with a fizzy white head, faint malts in the aroma, watery texture, watery ending. Starts and ends watery too.

PorterPounder (5593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Kitcho Restaurant, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Light golden pour, snow white head, slightly thin, leaves a good trail of lacing. Not much of a noticeable aroma, pehaps a hint of fresh lake water, and a hint of yeast. Flavor was crisp and had a trace of maltiness in the back end. Detect aa trace of honey sweetness. Thinnish mouthfeel and a metallicy finish.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2006
The bottle poured a very pale yellow, crystal clear beverage with a very small fizzy head that was fully diminishing and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was dominated by malt with notes of dough or bread yeast. The body was light with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet but quickly became somewhat bitter. the finish was short with just a bit astringent.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 1, 2006
2005 or early 2006 bottle consumed on 2/22/2006
Crisp, dry yeast bite rises up from the glass upon first pouring, with just the slightest hint of weakly grassy hops (very dry). Completely clear, yellow-gold body, with a white head that immediately fizzles to ring. Light dough in the nose as well. Papery, somewhat, with some carbonic acid.
Flavor is seltzery as well, touch of salt, very papery and with the faintest touch of soft flowers on the end. Donít get any off-flavors, but some rice syrup-like flavors are present on the end. As it warms and breathes, some waxiness begins to build on the end. The more it warms, the more it begins to fail. Wateriness that is present from the start takes hold as the vapidly large bubbled carbonation begins to loosen. Not by coincidence, I donít think Iíve mentioned the malt yet. I guess there is brief dried white dough. Light bitterness, if you could call it that, on end. No aftertaste, clean finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Peppery or dusty, somewhat grassy hop aroma, maybe cobwebs? Seems like notes of rice. Very bland, very much like water, with almost no discernible hop or malt notes - Iíve had several pale lagers recently, and have become rather attuned to them - this is the emptiest of all the ones Iíve tried of late. Very weak, watery finish. A vague sweetness around the middle as I get deeper into it, but thatís it. Straw gold, weak head.

nick76 (4234) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2006
The aroma has detectable hop and malt but still not much there. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is sweet malt with mild bitterness. The palate is thin. There is nothing bad about this beer but itís very blah.
