2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma of lager malts. Poured a boring piss yellow color with little to no top at all, and no lacing. Adjunct flavor, rice, pilsner malt. Clean and crisp on the palate. Not grainy. Overall, it’s a lager, nothing special

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice gold with a decent one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, grass, hay and some hops. Slightly sweet. Similar aroma. Has a decent body, that is somewhat full. The finish is a bit bitter and dry. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz can- Pours a clear golden color with a moderate head and no real lacing. Clean aroma of malt, fresh grain and just a bit of sweetness. Taste of malt and fresh grain with a mild sweetness. There is a very subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, very crisp and smooth. Decent balance and a very clean feel. Nice beer that goes down very easy. Fairly bland but was still enjoyable. Compliments Japanese cuisine very well. Quite good for the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells of hay, corn and maybe a bit of burnt hair. Tastes maltier than expected. Actually decent appearance, with some gold in the color. Nice and smooth, maybe a little thin.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Poured from Sapporo’s signature bomber can, and as a result it has an aroma that’s bready malt and metallic. Looks a shade darker than most lagers, decent head to start at least. Cloying sweet start, flushes out to a dry hollow finish. Where many would have their beers medium rare, Japan’s lagers usually come well done. Overall a very drinkable and refreshing beer, but I wouldn’t write home about it...or did I just?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden copper hue. Thick foamy white head. Grainy alcohol nose. Smells like Old English or some crap. Really watery, nasty grain, light metal, light bodied, finishes with a real crappy bitterness.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden clear, no head. Smells of wheat bread and lager malts. Tasted like caramel infused lager malt, with some light tomato as well. Light and sweet, with a little more maltiness and body opposed to a typical macro.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from cool-looking fluted tall-boy can into a tulip glass. Poured a clear light amber color with huge white foam which quickly subsided leaving some lace. I didn’t taste it side-by-side with standard Sapporo, but as I recall, this one benefits from an all-malt recipe (free of typical rice/corn adjunct faults,) richer color, slightly more aroma hops, with a hint of caramel in the flavor. It still had a light body, spritzy carbonation, with a crisp, refeshing lager finish. Nothing too unique here, but definitely drinkable.
