Had it with Chinese tonight. Pretty standard, but not bad for a pale lage. Had it from a bottle into a tall fluted glass. Clear yellow, decent head and some lacing. Sweet grassy smell. Taste of corn and rice, but crisp and clean.

Look: Urine yellow with a thin white head.

Smell: A weak hoppy and corny smell. Not unlike PBR.

Taste: Very bitter, but minus the flavor hops would provide to that. Some corn and malt on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Thin and highy carbonated.

Overall: Not even good for pounding back in a bar like PBR would be. I wouldn’t buy this unless it was the only beer around and I was a severe alcoholic.

Very nice rounded out beer abv is low for my kinda tast tho.
Poured into a Sapporo pint glass, nice cling to the glass, refreshing taste , smells of a cheaper beer . Almost taste of a Sam Adams light.

this beer is exactly what i thought it would be, an uninspired lager that's very drinkable.

I've been trying different Japanese beers at my new favorite sushi restaurant. I'm beginning to think that the Japanese have no appreciation for a tasty beer. If you like Bud Light, you'd probably like Sapporo.
