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.

I enjoyed this one. The hops had a slight sharpness about it. A well mixed clean flavour, but could do with more depth.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2004
I had a 22ozer of this as I was eating some tasty Sushi and a Filet Mignon. This beer pours a brilliantly clear straw color and it topped by a frothy pale white head. When this beer first hits my lips it has a spicy almost gingery hotness to it that quickly leads to a sweet grain character in the middle of this beer. The finish is still sweet with a bit of sharpness from the hops. This was a great palate refresher in between bites of sushi, pickled ginger, and filet. I must say that this beer worked out quite well, and I think that my review of this beer reflects the fact that had I had this beer on its own I would not have enjoyed it nearly as much.

Yellow with a good size white head that quickly dissipated. Mildly sweet malt aroma. Light malt flavor with a kind of corn syrup sweetness. Very little hops tasted.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
I could blame the can, or maybe this sample was less than fresh, but here goes, my experience with Sapporo-in-a-can... Clear, pale golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma actually reeks of adjuncts, definitely smells of corniness. Dry, mineraly, notes of straw and grain, and slight sweet undertones. Mouthfeel is rough and unpleasant. Each sip draws my face into a wince, and thats definitely not a good sign. Very hollow, with finish I can only describe as obnoxious. An unexpected, and bizarre blast of heat comes through, adding to what amounts to an extraordinarily unpleasant beer drinking experience. 22oz. can, which I had to dump not halfway through. I didnt have this much trial when Id consumed the bottled version! Blech! Blech! andwhat else? Bleeech!!!!

bitter malty taste, floral aroma very well hidden under a yeasty top note. Better than the last few japanese lagers I have had.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2004
A very carbonated yellow brew with a small white head, this has a mild aroma that lets you know barley malt isnt the only grain here... probably corn and rice, judging by the color. Not bad with a meal. Ive had it many a time at the local sushi bar.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2004
Pale yellow body with a fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation present. Looks like an amber soda!!! Aroma is corn, slight hops, and sweetness, but a chemically sweetness at that. Taste is watery, corny, can, and sweet hops. Watery mouthfeel. Good for hot summer days when you have nothing else.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottle: Pale gold with a short rocky white head. Slight hops aroma with very faint malt and what I can only assume was rice. Flavour was interesting but thin and watery. The adjuncts (rice?) give a very smooth feel to the flavour. Slightly sweet and mildly bitter. Nice for a hot day.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Poured a pale straw color with a thick and bubbly white head. Bitter and hoppy aroma with touches of corn. Bitter and malty flavor with strong hints of corn. Good lawnmower beer.
