2.7/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours from 22 oz can built like a Sherman Tank. Poured into a glass. Thinking of how many of these I drank while stationed in Tachikawa and Yokota AB back in the day.
Pours a golden clear yellow with 2 inch head that dissapates quickly with little lacing.
Smells of metallic container and earthy.
Tastes like metal and earthy hops.
Hypercarbonated on the tongue and watery feel in the mouth.
Taste lingers with bitter aftertaste.
Another memory of my youth bites the dust. Maybe its the setting, but I had held Sapporo and Kirin up as special ( I had not had a Japanese beer in 30 years.) and now have concluded it is a beer I will drink sparingly if at all. Maybe its the setting. If I ever get back to the bars in Shinjuku, I will happily try again.

I bought this ber as part of a make your own six pack. Total drain pour. No flavor what so ever. I've only said this about one other beer, but the only word I can use to describe it is YUCK!!! I will never make the mistake of putting this in my mouth again!
