2.1/5  rDev -35%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Slightly hazy golden color. Looked better in the can, which is quite an attractive aluminum can, so I poured it back into the can (after you read the rest of the review you'll see why).

Smell is very grain-alcohol-y, chemical, and fairly tame. Very similar to most domestic macros.

Taste is very light in all aspects, again with a macro character on the whole, and that annoying chemical taste. What is that taste? I can't find the right word.

Finish is short and dry.

The nice thing about this beer is the fancy can. Unlike regular Sapporo this can has nice barley designs on both sides of the can. very attractive. This beer is far more enjoyable straight from the can - if you must drink one at all.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a thin head that recedes quickly. Lots of streaming carbonation and bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Color is a deep golden. Mild lacing.
Aroma: rich aroma of toasted malt, a bit of grassiness and some hop spice. Very pleasant aroma. Mouthfeel: slightly heavier than most lagers, has a fullness in the mouth feel, almost some wine like characteristics. Finish is dry.
Flavor: nice combination that mirrors the aroma. Toasted white bread, some grassy flavors, and some mild lingering hop bitterness.

Serving type: bottle
