Sapporo Reserve is a super premium lager brewed almost twice as long as other competing brands. Reserve is brewed with only finest European barley, and the most select European hops.

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.

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.

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 (564) - 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.

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.

Very sweet smell and taste. Clear. No head. Very drinkable. I appreciate that the can can’t be destoryed.

McGarnigle (554) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2012
The can is the best part of this. Otherwise, despite being all malt, it’s a macro lager. I’m guessing 6 row is used; really no malt flavor. Hops are light and there is a very feint sour tang to it. The good news is it is crisp and light. But that’s it. I’d rather drink Stella.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of malted corn. Taste is clean corn notes with a mild light flavor. A slight sweetness in the aftertaste, a decent malt beer.
