Traditional nose and pale appearance, slightly more malty than the original Sapporo but still tastes like your usual Asian pale lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 22 oz in Pompano Beach, FL Pours with a largish, foamy, off-white head covering a deep yellow body. Aroma is a bit of wheat and maybe a little corn, with a fruity note at the end. Ultra thin mouthfeel. A little bit spicy and metallicy. There is also an odd apple taste to the beer. Interesting Japanese lager.

Location: Uchi - Houston, 12/9/13

Flavor: The taste is light and drinkable, similar to the nose, typical flavor for the style
Palate: The body is light, it has an alright mouthfeel, and a short finish

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden pour with a good white head. Grain with some sweetness and spice. But no surupyness. Bigger than normal. Tastier but light enough to go with sashimi. Actually pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well this is an "intriguing" premium lager, also is definitely better than average. Begins with an exceptional appearance, a solid gold color with a fluffy head and a great deal of lacing. Aroma is mild but distinctive, malty but also some floral sweetness. Taste likewise is somewhat subdued but a fresh and clean pale malty flavor. A full mouthfeel, although doesn't feel very carbonated despite the amount of lacing. Finishes smooth but also dry. Overall, a good pale lager, but nothing Japanese about it as far as I can tell, considering its made with all malt and imported European hops. A successful imitation of a quality European lager I suppose.
Btw i'm amused by the previous reviewers' fascination with the unusually large and durable cans this beer is packaged in.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours a thin head that recedes quickly. Lots of streaming carbonation and bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Color is a deep golden. Mild lacing.
Aroma: rich aroma of toasted malt, a bit of grassiness and some hop spice. Very pleasant aroma.
Mouthfeel: slightly heavier than most lagers, has a fullness in the mouth feel, almost some wine like characteristics. Finish is dry.
Flavor: nice combination that mirrors the aroma. Toasted white bread, some grassy flavors, and some mild lingering hop bitterness.
