Hey all. I'm back from the realm of non-posting with a fresh new crisp update for you all. Are you ready to have your minds blown?
Today I'll be reviewing Sapporo, since many of you have asked this.
Where to start... ok well first of all, let's break some myths about this beer. If you are drinking it in the States or in Canada, sorry to break it to you, but its not important from Asia. It's in fact brewed in Canada. So if you are paying $10 a can for it, you are getting ripped off.
Let's get to it
Looks: Golden opaque with a thin white head that doesn't last.
Smells: Strong citrus, some hops, rice. A bit aggressive on the nose I find.
Tastes: Rice, lemon. Quite crisp, fresh. Leaves a long bitter after taste.
Looks: 3/5 - Nothing particular about its looks. Rated up because I like the can.
Smells: 3/5 - Again, nothing really particular here. It smells like a typical rice beer.
Tastes: 6/10 - Again... nothing really particular here. Its a rice beer that's basically an upgraded bud. I mean that in the nicest of ways possible.
Overall: 12/20 - Have when you have sushi. Otherwise, stick to your local brewers.
Edit: Ok ok smartasses, I made a type, big deal. 12/20 :P
