TizzleJizzle (623) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
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

scooterbub (841) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 28, 2012
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.

Bif (1504) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2012
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.

I think this beer has got real character to it. has a great emphasis on the malt and rice. no bitterness. pretty full palate.

Bricks (607) - Delaware, USA - MAY 19, 2012
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.

Scrapersnbeer (1490) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2012
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?

Tasted: Bottled 04/14/12. Light and crisp very little head. A slight sweet wheat taste. Nothing special light and refreshing. Had with sushi.

unclemike (2274) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 9, 2012
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.

Bricktop86 (573) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2012
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.

seymour (1456) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2012
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.
