Tasting Notes:
Back in September 2012, Sapporo let consumers vote on one beer to be reproduced from a choice five discontinued beers. The winner with 29% of the vote was Sapporo Kuradashi Draft Beer, originally released in 1994, touting a “straight from the cellar” flavor.

Kuradashi Draft is an all malt beer with a slightly lower 4.5% ABV. On the front end, there is a rich malt flavor with a little bitterness from the hops. However, these flavors all dissipate on the back, leaving a dry clean finish.

You’ll find this one only at the convenience stores here in Japan. They’re still on the shelves as of this writing, so give Sapporo Kuradashi Draft a try while you can.
