ronaldtheriot (1880) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Sapporo Light has a thin, white head, a somewhat hazy, bubbly straw appearance, and a bit of spider web lacing left behind. The aroma is quite rich and pungent, with sweet, biscuit malt and grass. The flavor, however, is watered down. One will detect a slight hop bitterness and a touch of grain husk. Mouthfeel is not as light a usual, and one will experience a pleasant body, here. Sapporo Light finishes mostly dry, crisp, and refreshing. Yes, it is a rather dull, light beer, but in the style, it is much better than usual. RJT

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle. Very light clear gold pour with a big white head. Perfume, straw, grain. Light body with quite a bit of carbonation. Watery with slight sweet grainy finish. Not offensive like most light beer. Not bad

Patrickctenchi (6427) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Pours slightly hazed gold with a short, weak, off-white head. Aroma is very faint....straw/grass and water. Taste is mostly carbonated water and malt. No bad flavours really, but what taste there is, is so light as to be nearly non-existent.

Fatehunter (2482) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Thin head on top of a clear, lightest straw colored body. Its almost colorless. Strong metallic smell with a hint of honey. Taste is watery, a little metallic, mild bitterness and sweet end. Faint taste overall. Light body, moderate carbonation. Nothing special or interesting. Another light lager without flavor.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2012
This is one of the more flavorful "light" beers that I have tried and its still crisp and almost flavorlessly clean on the finish. The carbonation didnt seem as over the top as most American versions either.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours straw with wet notes of malt. Light notes of malt appear to be watered down. Easy drinking finish.

Barreras (1670) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a lucent yellow white little to no corn aroma. Taste is very light, almost watery no complexity to it. Light corn taste that goes away quickly.
