Sapporo Light Beer
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 16 oz pilsner glass

Pours a light golden yellow color. Mini head at first, but quickly becomes a beer with no top lace or head. Small carbonation bubbles race to the top.

The nose is rather boring. Faint whiffs of honey sweetness and grains.

Watery, bland flavor and taste. Grainy sweetness and fresh Brita water blend together. Lacks any form of complexity, but it's a very drinkable, thirst quenching beverage.

3.18/5  rDev +28.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium golden in color with excellent clarity, a large, persistent white head, scattered patchy lace, and slight carbonation.

Aroma: Tart grainy malt aroma with slight herbal hops.

Taste: Opens with a slightly tart malt note, which carries late into the taste, where a mild metallic bitterness appears. The finish is clean and dry.

Mouth feel: Soft on the palate, thin, but not excessively so for the style.

Drinkability/notes: Quite competently made, but utterly undistinguished, a thirst-quenching beer, but little more.

Presentation: Packaged in a short brown glass bottle with custom embossing and a pop off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

1.33/5  rDev -46.2%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a white, four finger-head that vanishes almost instantly leaving no lace. Clear, golden amber. Very light carbonation and very light bodied. Nose is faintly skunky. Starts skunky, not much taste hops and malts don't seem to be here, watery, boring finish. There are far better lights - SA light is one. $1.19 for a 12oz bottle from Northend Superette Manchester, NH.
