Served on a chilled glass from a 12 oz bottle. This is a classic japanese lager, when served it had a thick 1 finger head. It's color was dark yellow maybe even light brown. The smell was ricey and very inviting. Taste wise it was somewhat bitter, definitely could taste the hops and had a very good aftertaste. It's a very smooth drink that goes along well with japanese cuisine, I highly recommend it and if you have the opportunity you should give it a try.

Appearance - Pours a clear, golden yellow with a white, 2 finger head. Sub-par retention, and the resulting lace is... well, what lace?

Smell - Typical aroma of the style; grain and a touch of grassy hop.

Taste - Clean and crisp... but not much in the way of flavor. A bit of grain. Slightly sweet. Subtle bitterness near the finish. Not a whole lot to it.

Mouthfeel - Light in body. Crisp. Clean. Decent carbonation. Smooth and drinkable.

Overall - A beer I love to pair up with Philly and Rainbow rolls at the local sushi place, call me bias, this one holds a special place in my heart. Nothing too special, but there's a nostalgic value I hold with this beer.

Poured from the bottle.

Clear, pale-yellow in colour. Slight bitter and l to it, but not much else. Clean, mellow grain/yeast taste, with a clean finish. Not much to this beer, but not in a bad way. It's very drinkable, especially with sushi.

Would I buy it again? Probably... despite there being not much to this beer, it is light and refreshing, but not always with it for the price.

Poured from big boy can to a glass.

Ah,sushi and sapporo match made in heaven. Pours a light straw yellow, crystal clear with a fluffy white soapy head. Smells of cooked grains, boiled soap, hint of lemon. Grainy on the tongue, soapy, hint of lemon, and metallic. Light bodied, stale. Big adjunct taste smell and feel, also a big aluminum taste form the can, very basic standard beer, not my cup o tea.
