Another Japanese recipe contract-brewed in North America. Similar to others Ive tasted, this Japanese brew pours a light golden with a soapy white head. Aroma is light and slightly skunky, with hints of hops. Flavor is reminiscent of an American pale lager, only cleaner. Crisp and refreshing, and a good companion for food.

Compliments food well. I dont care for the after taste much, thats why its better than food.

Didnt know where to put this one, guess herell do. Bottled premium lager, brewed "under supervision of Sapporo" in the UK, 4.7%. Golden coloured, no head. Bit of malt in the aroma. Sharp, thirst quenching, standard lager taste, nothing special or particularly bad; which is strange because most foreign beers brewed under licence in the UK are shite.

I enjoyed drinking this beer. However, I dont feel that it had anything special that was worth taking note. It poured with a suprisingly thick head that dissapated quickly. It just wasnt anything special.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Sapporo Premium Beer, 4.9%, big 650ml can.
Not a bad lager, but pretty unimpresive, looks fine, its golden coloured, with an unimpressive head, but some nice lacing (it seems quite carbonated). The tasteis pretty much the regular lager one, with nothing special about it, its maybe a bit lemony. Thanks to a friend who brought it from Canada (brewed by Sleeman there). 4/3/5/2/9

From a bottle at a Hibachi restaurant. Tried it to increase the "experience" of oriental dining. Shouldve just stuck with the food. Aroma, appearance, and body are pretty much identical to American Pale Lagers. There wasnt too much skunk, thankfully. From now one Ill just order tea and water to keep the bill down; I wont be missing anything.

I really only use this beer as a palate cleanser between pieces of sushi. It doesnt have a bad taste, just a lack of any real complexity of taste. Ive had much worse and cant say this is a bad beer.

Again in their crazy can and again with a froth soapy head. For a lager, its drinkable. Really light yellow color. Smell is disgusting, but it tastes ok.

Pours yellow with a small white head. Aromas include sweet malt and corn, with a touch of citrus. Taste is rather bland, start sweet, and the hops kick in near the end. The slight citrus aroma continues in the taste. Not bad at all, better than a lot of other mass produced beers.
