I honestly didn't think this would be classified as a German Pilsner on here. I found this to be more a Adjunct Lager. Either way this wasn't overly impressive. There are far better beers from Japan out there. The beer is a little on the watery side, it's pale yellow in color and hasn't got much else in it to brag about.

Pale gold color with small carbonation, copious lacing and white head. Very light raw malt aroma.
Nice long bitterness, with a rather gooey sappy, though light hoppyness. Very firm maltness, not sweetness, except for sweet flavors that play well with the bitter finish.
Carbonation done very well.
I would not out of my way to find this again, but this is a slight head about most Japanese lagers, in that its a well defined beer.

10/16/16 - Coworker "imported" this from Japan for me. Cool can written in Japanese. Tall boy poured into an imperial pint glass. Dark yellow with nice white head that quickly dissipates. Taste is fine and went down very easily as we grilled outside. I'll get it again the next time I have sushi.

This is the main offering by Sapporo that is only for Hokkaido (i.e. local) distribution. It features a pretty bland can, notwithstanding the nice shout-outs to Hokkaido all over it. The mandatory English inscription is:

"Brewed with carefully selected ingredients, Sapporo Classic is an eminently drinkable flavor extravagance."

It has a bold gold color, and a malty, sweet smell. It is much heavier and richer than Sapporo's Black Label. It's a little raw, with rough hops and a little alcoholly. It's nice--but one is usually enough for me. That said, it's really not that exciting. Check out the Sapporo Reijou for a more exciting taste.
