The Quest Pt11: Sapporo Premium Beer

Time to head from the Mainland to an island off the coast.

Sapporo Premium Beer
I really need to invest in a proper flash and diffuser.

This is very fizzy, and pours with a smallish head that fades to a very thin lace on top with no glass cling. It looks a very pale yellow.

First sip: fizzy, watery, grainy, back of tongue sourness that fades to a faint hops bitterness. No taste of malt to speak of.

First Impressions: I dunno... another Meh. If I had a choice between Chang and Sapporo, I'd go for Sapporo, if only because it actually has some taste and fizz.

Second Impressions: Actually, halfway through the glass and I'm finding it's not as bad as first impressions. I've grown used to the sourness. It would be perfect to counteract a sweet food, or to wash down something salty or soy-y. Still too much mouth fizz, though. And still tastes watery.

Sapporo is Japan's Oldest Brand -- it says that on the label -- brewed by Sapporo Bewing Co, Guelph, Ontario, Canada. I wonder what Sapporo from Japan tastes like. To be fair, Sapporo Ca is owned and operated by Sapporo Jp. It used to be Sleeman's Brewery.
