Big fan of oriental beers, and this is one of my favourites.

An nice, light colour, but little head and little lacing. Nice, light yeasty smell.

One of the best tasting lagers, Crisp and refreshing, packed with flavour, but dissapates quickly with almost no after taste.

This is a good hot day beer, perfect for those BBQ's and backyard pool parties. A great everyday beer.

This Sapporo is brewed in Toronto, CANADA and it is one of the best beers I have every tasted. Often I enjoy a light beer which is a no no to some beer lovers but I think that is ridiculous.

This beer is the most refreshing of beers. Everything a light beer should be but isn't.

November 21, 2014

Poured from a can into a restaurant water glass

A – Dark straw to light golden, some sudsy bubbles, effervescent, bright white head with moderately low retention.

S – Sweet malt, rice or other adjunct aroma. Very light breadiness. Maybe some light herbal hops, but the sweetness is very prominent.

T – Again, very sweet, the rice providing a lot of resiny sugariness. There is some slight bitterness in an attempt to provide some balance, along with the slightest herbal hop flavor. But the sweetness is overwhelming, and becomes cloying as the beer warms.

M – Very sweet and smooth, but very slick from the adjuncts. Bitterness is minimal, goes down easy with some sugary aftertaste.

O – I do like Sapporo better than the larger American lagers, partly because I think the rice provides a nicer flavor and smoothness than corn. However, this is not very good beer. For what it is, it is alright though.
