Fatehunter (1480) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Thin head on top of a clear, lightest straw colored body. It’s almost colorless. Strong metallic smell with a hint of honey. Taste is watery, a little metallic, mild bitterness and sweet end. Faint taste overall. Light body, moderate carbonation. Nothing special or interesting. Another light lager without flavor.

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."

SDalkoholic (2201) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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

Tonkun (949) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle. Very light clear gold pour with a big white head. Perfume, straw, grain. Light body with quite a bit of carbonation. Watery with slight sweet grainy finish. Not offensive like most light beer. Not bad

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Pours slightly hazed gold with a short, weak, off-white head. Aroma is very faint....straw/grass and water. Taste is mostly carbonated water and malt. No bad flavours really, but what taste there is, is so light as to be nearly non-existent.

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.
