    Hey Kirai (Hector? if I may refer to your name directly)
    It’s been a few entries since i couldn’t see the pictures that you uploaded. the link couldn’t work neither.
    For eg, all i see now is “sapporo cerveza beer” in a box.

    I use Firefox.

    Seems every country has a signature beer. Guinness for the Great Britain area, Atuei for Cuba, Victoria for Nicaragua, Corona for Mexico, Fosters for Australia, Tsingtao for China and Sapporo for Japan. I’ve never tried Sapporo though, is it any good?

    I’m concerned about all Japanese beer companies selling cans as if they were cask ales.

    The word “nama” (生) has always been used for beer served from a cask, but I guess it’s not legally compromising if they are using it for cans.

    It’s been too long since I’ve had a Sapporo. Then again, I’m not sure how much they differ between Sapporo in the States and Sapporo in Japan. As in does the original Sapporo have more alcohol content than what is allowed in the U.S.? I find myself curious on that.

    I’ve never heard of a legal alcohol limit on beer in the U.S. I’ve seen beer sold here with some pretty high amounts of alcohol.
