A PERFECT beer!! Besides Tsingtao beer which I need to support..hehe A light golden color look. Makes me feel rich when I consume it. Fruity, honey sweet, floral, slight maltiness, some bitterness at the end. Maan this brew is complex!! Nice long ass bubble action in my crystal glass. Japanese sure knows how to make good beer!! I luv it!! Highly recommended!! A+++ to E=mc2 to infinity.

People are stupid. About as good as a standard lager can get. Very clean and easy to drink. Slight light lemon and herbal hops, excellent with food. All malt beer people talking about corn. lol

Poured from a 650 ML can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The beer has a nice malt and grass smell. The beer is a fairly dark golden color with a small white head. Nice mild malt and grass flavor with a semi-dry finish.

Sapporo Reserve has a thick, soapy, slightly off-white head, and a clear, yellow-golden appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and pretty thick lacing. The aroma is standard lager- barley and water. Taste is sweet, bread, lightly-roasted barley, and a bit of hops for rounding purposes. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Sapporo Reserve finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mild, and easy drinking. This is a lager the way itís supposed to be, and itís delicious. RJT

foyle (384) - Wyoming, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a tall 22oz can into a mug. The can offers a very brief description but no freshness date or abv. Appearance: The pour produces a tall white head over a deep golden body with excellent clarity. The head slowly fades and just keeps a small cap tight foam till the last sip. It also makes some cool lace pattern on the glass. Smell: It has a raw grain with a straw and light floral like hop bouquet. Overall itís light, simple and very clean. Taste: The flavor profile has the same clean grain and straw/floral hop mix with a dry biscuity finish. Its light to body is refreshing and well carbonated. Notes: Itís a good clean lager and an uplifting palate cleanser opposite my pineapple fried rice.

Mmm. Iíve had Sapporo Reserve many times during my first year in university. Four or five cans of this will complete your night! Oh right, the taste. Sapporo Reserve had a grassy taste, with a clean, refreshing, astringent finish. Adequate carbonation. It wasnít that watery though. No skunky scent. A shame that I did not complement this with Japanese food, as I chugged this down numerous times!
