Quickly bought this at convenience store tonight. Was thinking it might be some type of improvement from regular Sapporo but it wasn’t. Lightly hopped, thin body, not foul but not much going on. I guess it would pair well with sushi but doesn’t do a lot for me petewhitley (570) - Nagoya, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 hay, grass, pale, clear, sparkling, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, astringent. Faint hints of grain, grass. Exceedingly light and thin, harsh bitter start, sweet high note, fade to bitter. Light and completely unremarkable. jonno (2852) - JAPAN - DEC 29, 2012
It’s certainly a step up from the usual macro fare and is a pretty good approximation of a well bittered pilsner. The majors, despite a number of missteps, are starting to make some decent stuff. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012

Very light. Besides that some bitterness and a German bottom fermentation character. Overall rather tasteless.
Can. Happposhu spirits nose (but doesn’t contain spirits). Clear pale straw. Harsh, grassy initial; mid goes somewhat bitter; final balances out and leave traces of sweetness. Thin. Pretty ordinary, or worse. Contains rice, corn, and starch --but call itself a "premium" lager. Uh-uh.

Tin atop Shoyarama. Light hay and herbal aroma. Slightly bilious grain and hay taste finishing with a touch of astringency. Some pine in the mix. Bit papery. No glaring off flavours. Magical spot for a tick. KyotoLefty (10531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2010
Can. Low head on a pale gold beer. Sweet aroma of grains, sugar, corn, malt. Can’t sense hops. Sweet, grainy flavor. Corn and sugar. Slight hoppy finish. No character to speak of except a touch of citrus hops. Not vile, but why did they bother?
