Sapporo Kaitakushi Pour

Tasting Notes:
In 1876, Sapporo created Japan’s first beer, serving as the theme for Sapporo Kaitakushi Beer Premium. Its 100% malt and Furano hops recipe shows off a wonderful amber color and from the color and hoppy aroma, you can guess there’s something special in the glass.

The first gulp gives off a slightly vinegary flavor present in some microbrews, offering some uniqueness, while the malt and long lasting bitterness, stays true to the Sapporo line. If you’re interested in a Japanese beer with a little more flavor than the usual offerings, you’ll find salvation in Sapporo Kaitakushi Beer Premium. It’s only available at the convenience stores, and for a limited time.
