bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Single bottle from Total Wine. Light corny aroma with a slight noble hop lilt. Pale golden color with a white head that flattened fast. Near medium body with creamy fizzy carbonation. The flavor is not corny, rather light noble hop and light pale malt. Finish is much the same, but has a very slight herb/grass note. The bitter is better than many macros.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 6, 2011
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.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Even with sushi this beer would suck. Regular sapporo is ok in Japanese restaurants..but this isn’t good. Yellow pour, white head. Benign aroma of corn, malt, and maybe a touch of weak hops. Flavor is watery, grainy and not worth drinking ever again.

SudsMcDuff (5658) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Had with Saucebox at Tokyo Bowl (alaska,rockN,houston,___) ...Pours a standard yellow with a lower than average head... smell is of faint hops and grain ... taste is surprisingly full for a light, has some grain tastes but nice actually... One of the nicer light beers out there...

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Aroma is lightly beery, but almost mute. Pours light yellow golden with of bubbles and not much head. Rice, light bread, and a touch of grass. Super light body, crisp finish, nice with sushi and for a tick.
