Sapporo (Japan)

Sapporo Premium Beer
Sapporo Brewery (Brewed in Canada)
5% ABV

Sapporo Japan's first brewery has been producing this since 1876.  These days the beer available in Australia is brewed in Canada which is quite surprising. 

I did however contact Sapporo to enquire why Canada?  To be told that the beer is actually going to be brewed under license by Coopers in Australia, which is great news for Australia.


On pouring there isn't really any worthy aromas to write about, very faint characteristics of a lager are there.  A pale, light, fizzy beer is present once poured with a white head.  There isn't a lot of flavour going on, a little malt, a little grassy, you can taste a little alcohol but would have preferred to taste more malt characters.  The beer was very light in body, very easy to drink.  Refreshing and very session able.

For the type of beer this is this isn't bad.  You can drink a skin full and not get any overpowering characters.  A good quaffer.
