Poured from a 22oz. can into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light gold color with a thin white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is very pungent with the smell of rice and light malts, along with a very faint touch of hops.
T: The taste is grainy with flavors of rice, a light malt sweetness and a little bit of hops bitterness. The flavors don’t seem to blend very well. The after-taste is bitter but it’s not a pleasant hops bitterness.
M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium-to-heavy carbonation, very dry finish.
D: Not very tasty, doesn’t go down very easily, slightly filling, I found it quite difficult to get through the can that I had (luckily it was just one) and would definitely not drink this beer 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!

Rice lager? More like piss lager. I was excited and expecting a lot more out of this beer and it let down. If I had to compare it to anything it would be an adjunct lager. In fact. this tasted eerily similar to Bud Light. Won't be trying this one again.

Pours with a pale gold color. The head is white and low with a poor retention (a little lacing though). Very clear.
A disagreeable nose with some grassy notes. Uninspiring.
The taste is adjuncty with a citrus presence. The bitterness is kind of harsh. Some malt sweetness.
It is very dry and gassy. The finish is dry and puckery.
The flavors dont bend well, resulting in an unbalanced beer. I simply didnt like this one. I did not find a single redemptive characteristic. I will not be visiting this one again.

First had: ?
Ever notice that beers labeled as "premium" are almost always the exact opposite? Sapporo "Premium" pours from the can a golden-straw-yellow color, clear, with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grains, corn, skunk...pretty much adjunct lager. Taste is the same, grains, corn, malty sweetness, and vague yeastiness. Light body, thin, unnecessary, undrinkable. Yet strangely still better than Bud or Old E.

Had this at a local Japanese restaurant. Poured from a can.
A- Looked and poured like it's cousin, the American Adjunct. No surprise here. Yellowy/strawish/pale in color with a decent foamy head and a bit of lacing that dried quickly.
S- Not a lot going on here. What little aroma is there smells only of rice/corn.
T- Dull corn/rice again, with a hint of that urine taste that I love to hate. Tastes pretty foul.
M- Thin, moderately carbonated. Goes down easy assuming you can stand the taste.
O- I got what I expected from this beer. I'd never had it, but I could have told you pretty much what it was gonna be like beforehand. Boring, what little taste is there is foul, etc, etc... One of the reasons people think beer is nasty. Didn't even finish the can.

16.6 oz can
pours a clear yellow with a frothy soapy white head. lots of carbonation.

Aroma is mostly corn with a little malt and sugar.
taste is bland, sweet (nutty? )
with a marshmallow quality to the mouthfeel.
