No. 183 – Sapporo Premium Beer

No. 183 – Sapporo Premium Beer

The disappointment of finding a beer you haven’t tasted in one of your favourite bars and then finding out that they no longer do it and just haven’t updated their menus…

Fortunately, I found a few tins of it in a dépanneur not to far from my place.

I tasted this beer many years ago and thought that it was ok, but nothing special.  This time however it was actually quite nice, for a lager.  It’s a nice colour with an aroma that’s a little hoppy as one would expect.  Taste-wise it is a smooth lager, which I think I prefer to other lagers I’ve drank regularly in the past such as Harp and Carlsberg – a long time in the past, before I discovered red ales and stouts.

It’s good, it’s worth the price, it is exactly what it says on the tin, I’d drink it again and I’d recommend it.  I’m going to be generous and give it an extra Yes as I can say all these things about many lagers, but I like this one a little more.
