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.

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.

500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased for about $2.60 CDN from the beer store.

Appearance - clear pale golden color. A finger and a bit of a head that retains its body somewhat well. Some lacing and plenty of bubbles.

Smell - lightly floral, a faint graininess permeates. General lager like smell throughout.

Taste - light hop bite followed by some bland graininess. Not a lot else going on.

Mouthfeel - clean and crisp, moderate carbonation, and moderately dry finish.

Overall - decent rice lager that is quaffable, but not terribly exciting. Wouldn't pass one up for free though.

Not great but not awful either. The beer reminded me of a better tasting Budweiser, but definitely not a flavor I typically seek out when drinking beer. However, if you are drinking very flavorful Asian food, and don't want a flavorful beer to compete, this beer would work well.
