Tasting Notes:
Produced by Sapporo for the Aeon Group (Aeon, MaxValu, etc.), Sapporo Migaki Mugi is made with polished barley malt removing the husk, Czech fine aroma hops, and boasts a creamy head when poured.

Indeed out of the can, the head was nice an creamy. On my first gulp I encountered a lot of malt flavor, the bitterness was all up front, with some vinegar-ish tones. Migaki Mugi finishes clean without much flavor lingering on the back.

Personally, I didn’t prefer the taste of this one. It had a lot going for it, but was missing “something.” If you want to give it a try, head out to your local Aeon supermarket. Sapporo Migaki Mugi is still gracing the cooler shelves.

    Have you come across Yebisu Premium Joel Robuchon in a red can with a harlequin pattern, I bought a can today in Takamatsu Lawson, it tastes like an India Pale Ale. I particularly like beers with the fruity/ spice taste.
