Sapporo Black label is loved by beer fans who prefer the traditional true beer taste. Drinking them, you can feel the deep umami flavor as Japanese say. The deep taste does not last inside your mouth for a long time, however. If you're looking for the real beer of Japan, many would argue that it's the Sapporo Black Label!

Sapporo Lager Beer

Since Sapporo beer is the oldest beer company in Japan, its oldest product "Sapporo Lager Beer" can thus be said to be the oldest beer in Japan. Compared to the "Sapporo Black Label" which has a shining star printed on the label, Sapporo Lager Beer has a single red star label and is usually referred to as "Akaboshi" (red star in Japanese) with familiarity.

Akaboshi tastes quite bitter and has a crispy deep flavor. It might be difficult to find them at grocery stores or at convenient stores so better visit some traditional bars or izakayas (Japanese bars) to find them.
