fonefan (50674) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle. Alc. 4.7% Clear medium yellow color with average fizzy fair lacing mostly lasting white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, toasted. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration .... zzzzz boring. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

yespr (47039) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2007
65 cL can (as Sapporo imported). Piurs golden orange with white head. Mild sweet corn aroma. Sweet corn and rice flavour with a butterscotch note. Mildly sweet finish.

Ungstrup (38243) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2003
A golden beer with an OK head. The aroma is very faintly malty. The flavor is slightly malt sweet with a nice bitterness - nice balance. A standard pilsener - OK for a japanese beer.

joergen (28955) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2005
Clear yellow beer with small white head. Malty aroma with notes of hops. The flavour is dominated by hops. Nice with japanese food.

anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2005
Cear golden colour. White longlasting head. A little sweet malty aroma. A crisp taste but a little watery. Some malty flavor too. Not much bitterness in the aftertaste.

oh6gdx (26487) - 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.

Travlr (25771) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2008
On draught at Cefe Nema with jazz in the background. Pale yellow, clean refreshing flavor with very dry finish. Several steps above the bottled version. Thumbs up.

omhper (25547) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2003
Bottled (wacked silver plastic shot bottle). Golden coloured with slight chill haze. papery and yeasty with notes of cellar flavour. Thin, sweet and cloying without a trace of hops.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
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
