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.
