Tasting Notes:
Back on store shelves with a new package design is Platinum Clear, a new genre brew under Sapporo’s Mugi to Hop brand. Platinum Clear is brewed for a crisp, clean flavor using malt low in nitrogen and hops with lower alpha acids.

In the glass, Platinum Clear has a nice straw color. The first gulp is on the light side, yet has a nice maltiness to it. Platinum Clear is very clean and light across the palate, but you do taste the “beer” flavor. On the backend is a nice hoppy tang.

Platinum Clear continues to be a clean, refreshing brew for those budget conscious drinkers. It’s on the lighter side of the flavor spectrum, but still gives a nice malty punch. If that suits your style, then Platinum Clear is right up your alley.
