Sapporo Five Star Hokkaido Select Pour

Tasting Notes:
First distributed nationwide in 2010, Sapporo Five Star is a draft beer usually only available at Sapporo’s Bier Garten in Hokkaido. It is made in “German style,” using the finest barley and hops grown in Hokkaido.

Sapporo Five Star has a nice familiar golden straw color. The flavor is full-bodied and rich, a notch above the standard Japanese lager. It has nice bitterness, and does not go over the top, making it perfect for an all you can eat and drink establishment that is Sapporo Bier Garten.

Sapporo Five Star is available now, for a limited time at your local Japanese convenience store.
