look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a hand glass.

A: Pale yellow. Lots of rising effervescence which continues throughout experience. Pours a 1 and a half finger, foamy, white head. Settles fairly slowly but not completely. Significant beer ring lacing.

S: Yeast and wheat. Overall, pungent.

T: White bread. A little pungent. Nothing else really.

M: Light body. Crisp. Refreshing quality. No really aftertaste or distinction from start to finish.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is ok. Lots of carbonation, nice head, and pretty solid lacing. Nose is a little pungent combination of yeast and wheat. Flavor of white bread.... just kind of there. Nothing distinct about the flavor or feel. Overall, this is an ok quaff.

Serving type: bottle

This Japanese brewer makes a pretty decent beer. Though I don't know exactly what a rice lager is supposed to taste like, I have to say Sapporo is a pretty drinkable beer and I'd order it in a Japanese restaurant if I wasn't in the mood for tea.

I think the hop taste is a litter more than I prefer, but it's otherwise clean and refreshing with a lot of carbonation.

I won't go out of my way for this beer but it's not a poor choice either in my opinion.

Serving type: can
