Probobly my favorite beer from the land of the rising sun. It is highly drinkable and sepecially goes well with sushi. Gold color and light aroma with no real lingering taste.

Watery pale lager with very little to go on. Slightly sweet and refreshing on a hot day and not much else.

Pours a yellow straw with a soapy foam head that laces. Smells of faint warm sake and grain. Tastes of watery malt and not much else. A little bite that reminds me of hops. Light in the mouth and drinkable for colored water. To be honest, its not that bad it just doesnt boast craft beer flavor. It does compliment my sushi very well being that its refreshing and renews the palate for picking out the subtle delicious flavors of the nigiri at hand.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern- I ordered this for the free pint glass. Pale yellow color with a small fizzy head. No real aroma. Slightly better than BMC but not by much. Dry finish. Nothing special.

12 oz bottle. There is really not much difference between Sapporo, Kirin, and Asahi. All 3 are Coor’s light type clones. I mean come on, do you expect rally good beer from Japan? No, of course not. You expect good food!

Somewhat refreshing, the taste is unoffensive, and has a bit of a sharpness to it, but no - this is not a good beer by any means...

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a light golden color. Smell is of grains, some sweetness. Taste is mild, light grains and malts. Overall a mediocre beer.

Tap. Initially some depth to the head that disapated quickly. Carbonation is there and noticeable though nowhere near macros. Pale light yellow, smooth to the taste, thin in the mouth and overall a more than average pale lager with nothing outstanding.

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle 330ml. Pours a clear golden head with medium size head. Fruity hops in the nose. Traces of malt and hops in the flavour - but really neutral clear feeling. Hops in the aftertaste.
