1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Japan mainly imports malt from Australia, therefore Japanese beer is quite expensive. This is a "Happo-shu", one of the low malt beers produced in Japan to lower the price. It has a lower malt procentage the lowest level permitted by law for for "real" beer, (some 55% or so) and therefore it is in the Happo-shu category. Can bought in Hiroshima. Weak yellow colour with a short fizzy head. Weak aroma. Rather thin dry flavour with some hoppiness. Boring "beer"

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Draught at the Sapporo Beer Garden "Garden Grill" . Pours fizzy yellow; tastes and smells fizzy yellow. It’s hard to figure out how this might be different from nearly any other Sapporo product, but nonetheless I spent some effort trying. I think it might be *slightly* more hoppy than the Sapporo Premium Draft ("black label"), but somewhat less than the Classic. Altogether forgettable, though.
