Crisp. Excellent served ice cold while eating sushi. Almost tastes similar to a pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Tin in Japanese restaurant. A tiny bit of malt in the aroma. A tiny bit of hop in the finish. Thin body, Thin mouthfeel. Overwhelmed by plain white rice.

Psytron (2286) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
A watered-down version of Finnish lager, basically... (This beer rating was imported from FB and unfortunately lacks any further comments.)

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Typical pale lager. Light and watery, with mild tastes of malt, hay and skunk. Not horrible, but far from great.

Has a weird slunk scent and taste, rather different lager taste than I am use to.

tastes better than it looks or smells. a bit oily and bitter. decent for a cheap beer.

Aroma’s pleasantly grainy and sweet. Nice dirty blondish hue from the glass. Soft and clean on the palate. There’s absolutely no tail. Very clean finish. Delicate body. Never get tired of drinking it. If you are looking for a good beer to binge on, the Sapporo Classic is it. N.B. the Classic can only be purchased in Hokkaido, not the mainland of Japan. I’m surprised to read stories from people who have tried this beer because I don’t know how they were able to get their hands on it. Most Tokyoites have never even tried the Classic.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2011 Can. One of the best Japanese beers I’ve tasted. The flavour is mildly sweet, the aroma is subtle and inviting. This beer is only sold in Hokkaido.

Hammy78 (973) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010
Sampled from a 500ml can purchased at the LCBO. Pours a bubbly yellow, yellow, yellow. Smells a little of hops. Tastes a little grain and grass.

DScanlon (70) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Pours pee pee golden yellow with a foamy, very typical head for the style. Aromas and taste are as follows: grassy/straw/cheap white bread/ever so slight hoppiness. I’m pretty sure I proclaimed "Yay Japanese Budweiser" as I drank this as a 2 for 1 special at a Japanese restaurant. But really, comparing this to Bud is an insult.
