3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber colour. Light pale malt, fusel and grassy hop aroma. Mild bitterness from noble varieties, light pale malt sweetness and macroish acidity on the palate. Why are so many macrobrews tart like this?

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of light grass and noticeable malt. Orange tinged gold coor with a white head that collapsed, but left some lacing. Medium+ mouthfeel; low carbonation; sort of a warm malt foundation, and there is definitely some decent pilsener type hop in the finish. If it was not quite so malty, and had a bit more hop, I’d think it actually was a pilsener. Way better than Bud.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(22oz can) First off, I find it hard to believe that I’m drinking a beer from a can -- I mean, it’s a cool looking can, but it explicitly says it’s a "Malt Liquor." Big white foamy head atop a crystal clear straw body. Aroma is mild sweet, grassy, cereal. Taste is mild sweet, cereal up top, before turning mildly bitter grassy mid-tongue and into the swallow. Watery body.

Clear, straw-colored lager with a medium-sized, fizzy, white head.
Malty, floral aroma.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Big fucking canned @ home picked up at Argonaut for $2.99. Pours a clear burnt orange appearance with a fluffy, off white head. Somewhat herbal, woody hoppy, toasted malty aroma. There’s some hops in the flavor but there’s a dull, woody, sweet malty, lightly fruity, light white grape flavor. Not as good as the regular Sapporo.
