oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Bottled as Sapporo Premium lager 4,7%. Pale yellow colour, small bubbly head. Maize and hayish malt flavour. Also hints of cooked vegetables. Malty and hayish but turns into bizarre unpleasant sweetness in finish.

bottle. I have always heard that the Asian macros (although apparently this was brewed in Canada) were worse than ours but, I was surprised to find this one to not be very bad, grainy aroma, hint of that classic "american macro skunk" at first but it finishes with a pleasant sweet hay taste. Tiny, tiny, tiny hint of hops...i think. Not bad, went nicely with my sushi.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Irish version brewed by Guinness Ireland Group as "Sapporo Premium Lager" at 4,7% ABV. Quite neat, full golden colour. Decent head. Very unspectacular lager with only a hint of hops. 010403

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2005
22oz can. Pours a pale yellow with ok head. Taste of corn and rice. Smells metallicy and bitter. Alright on a hot day or with sushi. Pretty much "japanese budweiser".

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2005
Pours a pale watery yellow with slight head. High carbonatation. Aroma hints strongly of adjucnt (corn/rice). Taste slightly bitter. With minimal aftertaste. General lager taste with a bitter hint.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2005
Nose is a rice field without the water, and the palate is like dehydrated water. The taste reveals hints of straw, rice, and watered-down hops. The malt adds at least some body to this concotion. Good at a sushi bar, perhaps, but not for a day watching football.

MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 8, 2005
clear yellow color, fizzy body and foamy white head. high fructose corn syrup nose, a little like rice milk too. chickenfeed malty flavor, far away hop. nicely distracted by benihana chef Yoon, flipping scallops and steak on the teppan-yaki.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2005
Light in flavor appearance and body. It is more significant than the other Japanese beers I’ve tasted. I like the big bottles and it certainly beats bud light.

georgekillian (344) - Alabama, USA - APR 2, 2005
a decent asian beer nothing special to talk about easy going down not as good as a kiran though

Brad (363) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2005
Pale yellow, white head that diminished extra fast, I even tried pouring terribly so a head would appear and couldn’t get anything to last. Aromas of skunk being most prevelant, with hay, grass, and corn rounding out the nose. Flavor again dominated mostly by skunk and corn, metalic tinges as well. Thin and watery, yet still barely drinkable. Damn these restaurants with no beer selections.
