Billowing foam dissipating to a small head and no lacing. Crystal clear golden-ish yellow-ish colour. Near the colour displayed on the tall can itself.

Crisp hoppy-maltiness on the nose. Bright hop notes on the tongue with some grassy-sassiness along with light bready notes and some citrus zing. Grainy and corny.

Nothing too special but better than original Sapporo. I'd have this one again on a given day.

Poured from a 650 ML can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The beer has a nice malt and grass smell. The beer is a fairly dark golden color with a small white head. Nice mild malt and grass flavor with a semi-dry finish.

This is a good tasting beer. Very similar to Kirin Ichiban beer. They are both advertised as "all malt beer." I gave a 4 rating to both of them.

This was just plain bland. I suppose this would be reminiscent to a macro style beer, but from Japan. There was not much flavor and what could be tasted was not particularly enjoyable. It tasted stale and off in a cheap way. A bit musty and left an uncomfortable sticky feeling in my mouth.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
