Malty aroma. The taste is slightly fruity. Light bitterness which fills the front of the mouth briefly. Poor beer but drinkable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Sapporo The gold can, pours a clear light gold with a fizzy head of foam. Grainy sweet sugary corn nose with edges of skunk. Light to thin bodied. Cold it is passabl in a tasteless sort of way. Warming  up gives you flavors you'd rather not have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Clear, deep golden, fine head. Sugary nose, lemon or orange. not convincing. slightly malty flavor, corn or grains, some lemony hops, butter or cream. Not all that pleasant. Thin and watery 3rd. Pretty crappy stuff. Sweet, watery cheap-ass fake beer.

GoufCustom (1217) - HONG KONG - JUN 24, 2014

350 ml can bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.

Golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing and slight carbonation; Slightly fragrant aroma of malt, with light floral, strong molasses, light bread, very light lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of malt, with strong molasses, light honey, white bread, lemon, light bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body, quite dry and slick palate; Mouth feel is the richest Happoshu I’ve tasted so far - pretty much feel like a lean, clean, and adjunct-free macro Pale Lager, say, a slightly-thinned Carlsberg Lager. Malt taste is light but fulfilling, rich molasseses, quite flowery, plus light bread and moderate light hops. No bad taste, pretty sunny. Good!... Hoppiness is light floral, light lemon and grass in nose. Flower, light lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is slightly stronger than most macro Pales a low but lasting sweet-bitter finish; Quite dry after taste; Nice sweet and quite hoppy to mouth.

Comments: This is a very well-made near-Pale Lager and, as a Happoshu, this one get full marks - nice colour, full malty feel with nice sweet taste, no adjuncts or off-taste, plus nice floral and good light bitter hoppiness. Very enjoyable light refreshment, and it shows you the potential of big boys like Sapporo can put their mind to make seriously good Lagers, if and whenever they want to. Recommended!

Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Clear bubbly gold. Some DMS, a little grainy aroma, sweet, corny and dusty taste. Light body, fizzy, unpleasing old malt finish.
