Basically a better version of Sapporo. A little more to the aroma and much more to the taste of regular Sapporo. Enjoyed this beer far more than regular Sapporo of Kirin. I would actually buy it to drink at home.

Sapporo Draft - 12oz can, one of the primary servings on cross-Pacific flights. A bit bolder than the Suntory Malt’s, definitely more crisp. Maybe that’s what happens when you put a draft in a can. Never really understood that seemingly conflicting marketing scheme. Draft in a can? Bottled beer in a can? Session IPA? Not the first nor last time marketers will defy logic in attempts to steal the attention of beer drinkers. What’s next? Session malt liquor? Clear porter? Flavorful American lager? The pills are really kicking in now as well, very forgetful. Is that the main way these relieve anxiety? You just forget everything? When they talk about not using drugs to escape reality, funny how the drugs prescribed so often seem to do just that, while the drugs we take recreationally more often intensify reality (at least the drugs i take recreationally). Overall not a bad beer, but not good enough to stop me from ordering a wine next time. The second in flight movie is almost over (did not note which one it was, so good luck ever remembering that 90 or so minutes now). The point is, time was passed, words were written, and at least this will not be forgotten.

Here comes the prototypical fizzy yellow beer. Doesn't retain a head. Fizzes up white, but crashes with no wave. Aroma was mild nothingness of grain, rice type of thing.

Taste, well there's lots of carbonation, a little twinge of hops and bitterness. Six row I'm thinking and rice. Watery, good for food I guess. I don't know why it is so relatively expensive, I guess its because it comes from half way around the world, or they just have a good marketing department to make people think this is exotic and imported.

Weak and watery, pours a pale golden (like ginger ale) color. No head to speak of. Taste is weak and almost non-existant. Not much to speak of from this offering.

This was a bit better than the Asahi, a bit softer on the taste buds, a bit more enjoyable going down. But it still is not a drink to savor, to hold in your mouth and get the full flavor before letting it slide down. Went better with the tapas we ordered and I sipped it through the first part of the meal. This beer complimented the food better and I guess was more to my western taste. Still a bit thin for me.
