The Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can continues, episode 41: Sapporo Premium Beer. The QBCBC archive is here.
The only time I ever drink Sapporo is when I go out for sushi. As if it really fucking matters, but I guess it makes the experience more ‘authentic’. Yeah, whatever.
% Alcohol: 4.5
Price: 2.79/22 oz. can = $1.52/12 oz. can
Color: A lighter shade of amber.
Aroma: Has a cheap beer with hops smell to it.
First Sip: Very crisp and the hops snaps at you right away. Definitely has a lot more flavor in it than its aroma gives away.
Aftertaste: Slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. Doesn’t last long.
Overall: While its a solid beer in a can, it isn’t cheap as it is an import. You can get the same beer for a much higher Punch!!
