Sapporo from Japan :

The look of it is really light with golden color with a light carbonation.

The smell of it: Not much is coming on my nose. Get really give something out of it .

The taste of it some grains and some hops maybe but very light. feels like a 4% ABV. I will say even the Coors Light have more taste.

So overall would I recommend it ? If you find it on special like I find it, yeah its different but not exceptional, if its not on special, get something else.

Format: a standard 355mL brown bottle with an average macro label.

Appearance: pours a clear light yellow with chunky carbonation. A thin white head drops away pretty quickly. Looks like a pretty standard macro lager.

Aroma: not very much on the nose at all - just a slightest touch of grain and adjuncts.

Taste: pretty much the same - not very much there at all. Some light grains and adjuncts again, hardly any hops either.

Aftertaste: just about nothing on the finish. Drops away quickly - designed as a throw-down no doubt.

Mouth feel: pretty decent for the style - light in body without being watery, with an okay carbonation.

Overall: an average and overall unimpressive macro lager that is assumedly designed to have low taste for throwing back, but there are still better macro lagers for the AU$45 a case bracket.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, E2313G bottle code. Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, light bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt, rice, earthy hops, and light yeast notes; with poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, light bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, light bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, rice, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly dry mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very solid rice lager style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pale malt, rice, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
