Starting my tescos foreign beer binge with Sapporo. Now most of these beers are imports and not ‘foreign’ in the sense that say fosters or san miguel is (ie brewed in newcastle).
Bizzarely Tescos have imported the canadian brewed brand, rather than the stuff from the japanese or east asian breweries. I’m not familiar with the brand enough to tell the difference, although you wonder if it might taste a little less generic closer to the home market.
As is this is virtually indistinguishable from a decent curry lager…is what I was going to write as I initially started drinking this (massive and awesome) can. As the beer warmed slightly (from very cold to just cold) there’s a hop taste that’s quite distinguished.
Not unpleasant, plus points for having an excellent can/flask/flagon type container.
