Tasting Notes:
November of 2016 saw a limited release of Sapporo Lager Beer from Japan’s oldest brand. This package design featured the 1893 label design on the back of the can. From its humble birth at Kaitakushi Brewery in 1877, Sapporo Lager has remained on of my favorites. Its malty depth, bitterness with some slight sweetness make for a wonderful complex flavor. Sapporo Lager can usually be found in bottle form, so head down to your local liquor shop and search the beer cooler.
