Can from 7-11. Nose of lime, a bit zesty. Clear gold color. Light malt, lime again. It goes a bit buttery in mid palate. Very mild bittering. Thin-medium body. Kind like a soda lime drink with a bit of malt. Maybe a half beer. A cheap summer refresher.

Sapporo Mugi To Hoppu The gold Extra Rich
Can. Thin malt nose, light sewer, grain, maybe some citrus.Clear dull gold color. Grain, some light tangy citrus, hint of added spirits, starch, and final bitterness. Thin-medium body, a bit rough on the tongue. Maybe this is a rebranding of the "Extra Malt" variant in the series?

Sapporo Yebisu
Can at the home front in Kyoto - picked up in Tokyo. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds simple cereal, pale grains, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavour with minimal bitterness, some hay, pale biscuits, maybe lemon peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty OK balance in the finish, with further pale bread, lightly bitter straw, faint dough. Quite basic, unsurprisingly, but it drinks easy.

Can at the hotel in Tokyo. Sourced from the local 7-Eleven. Pours clear yellow-gold with a frothy, pure white head. Certainly some citrus aspect in the aroma, zezty lime, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavour with light bready pale malts, low bitterness, further lemon and lime accents. Light bodiednwith average carbonation. Reasonably clean on the finish, with some further biscuity notes, pale bread, lime zest, ripening lemon. Pretty enjoyable. Not a ’full on’ fruit beer, which I think is a positive.

banana, bubblegum, butterscotch, golden, clear, frothy, light sweetness, medium body, creamy, astringent. Delicious, candy-ish aroma. Nice froth. Citrus and banana, with a bit of a kick. Ends rather abruptly, and sits a bit heavy in the stomach; but it’s a nice ride up to that point. Interesting and pleasantly surprising.

bread, raisin, golden, clear, minimal head, lightly bitter, light body, oily feel, bitter. Malt liquor-ish nose, sweet. Lightly bitter, booze overwhelms any other flavoring. Leaves an oily film on the lips. Not overwhelming despite the limp taste and alcohol content. Not exactly enjoyable either.

Canned from Bottle Bin. Haven’t seen this beer in almost twenty years. Wanted to try it again for quite a while. Probably not as good as it seemed back then. Roasty up front with a little hint of sweetness. Fairly thin on the palate. Some good roasted coffee notes and a little bit of black licorice. Some burnt grains as well. Fairly decent roasty finish. Not too bad, but gets a little cloying. Roast is good though.

Opaque black pour with quick beige foam. Roasted malt in the nose with whiff of coffee. Medium body, moderate fizz. The hops are faint in the taste, but manage to compliment the dark malt. Slightly hoppy aftertaste. Labeled as Sapporo Premium Black Lager Sampled at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2017.

One of those crappy light weight macro brews that goes really well with tapanyaki fare. Served best at near freezing temp. Has a sweetened, crisp corn flavor. An exotic smash brew. Take it or leave it.

From the 650 ml. can marked HO516G-0933FL, It pour a typical looking light amber-yellow with a long lasting foamy white head. Some lacing. The aroma is mainly corn, rice, and grass but I do find a slightly intriguing melon character. Smooth. medium body. The taste has a pale malt bready and sweet note with a slightly fruity or melon-like hop finish. Better than I expected but nothing out of this world.

500ml can. Wow that’s a good looking can ..feels robust and thick in my hand as I pour this Japanese piss into a German jug . Beautiful shinny silver can is hypnotic ,like a garish Japanese karaoke screen after ten of these. Nose of glue and Japanese war torture. Golden and with a limp head of white that resembles uncle Ben’s stodgy rice. A clean beer, nothing wrong with it ...

Can from Yamaya. Nose of banana, angel food cake, light coffee creamer, and some grassy hop. Bright pretty gold color.Wheaty, banana, touch of clove, a little citrus, and small bittering in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Nice enough. More bittering than typical. Just a bit too thickly sweet. Seems like a wheat/blonde ale mix.
