Mild straw aroma, corn. Light malty flavor, grass, then naughty peppery bitter finish. Quite disappointing for a Sapporo nama, would much rather drink one of their mugi to hop happoshu series instead.

Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2013
500 ml can. Golden bronze body with aromas of grain, funky rice and starch. Best thing by far about this beer was the creamy mouthfeel, and the half-decent carbonation. Flavours of stale bread, light malts. Supposed to be a íproperí beer, but tasted plasticy and artificial like so many happoshu. Was a sucker for the ílimited editioní on the can- am I turning Japanese?

I liked it. More fruity that the usual Sapporo . Mild yet strong. Has an element of Kirin Ichiban to it, which is no bad thing. Overall a solid beer and not as bland as some Asian beers can be.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2012
Can. Stinky grass and mild hop aroma. Clear yellow with streams of slow hypnotic snow globe carbonation rising and great lacing. Mild grassy flavor, with even milder hop behind it. Thin-medium body. Not a lot to say about this one. Itís okay, but barely. A generic Japanese macro seasonal with interesting carbonation.

Can. Deep gold, amber tints. Tall, fine head. Dull nose: some malt, the slightest touch of grass. Sweet, somewhat fruity malts, tiny trace of hop. Nothing special, corny. Why bring back this recipe? Recent years have been better.
