2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. clear gold with a small white head. sweet malt and candy hop aroma. syrupy palate and highly carbonated. a hint of alcohol astringency at 6%. the hops taste clean and herbal. saphire is a german hop developed recently as an alternative to the german classics but with a hint of berry/citrus supposedly(which i didn’t pick up on). its an ok beer though, but the abv shows up some.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Pale gold pour with minimal head. Nose is slightly syrupy, but overall just crappy grainy lager.

Not bad for a German style beer made in Missouri. 6% alcohol is a nice addition.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Overall, pours very light and faintly hoppy. Taste is pretty weak and light. Refreshing but not too amazing really.

Blech. Smell is dry and musty with an apple note. The taste is one noted and slightly sour. There's a nasty aftertaste too. Tough to describe beyond just being bad

almost no smell that’s slightly sweet, small head, decent taste, lightly malty with no hops, average taste, finish lingers a bit and is sticky to your palate...not refreshing, but not terrible if it’s cheap enough

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a black bottle this beer is light pale lager. Metallic aroma. Some cheap ice beer feel to it. A little course for a pale lager. Stronger than most in this range. Yes, ice. Perhaps approaches malt likkah, eh? Metallic aroma lingers near the top of the beer. Not as refeshing as expected.

What is this - Becks without hops? Mildly sweet, cerveza like brew. Could probably use a slice of lime our lemon. Where’s the beach? It’s where they rarely serve good beer for some reason. Dutch beaches are another story. Drinkable but not good - or the other way around. Pass the Colt 45. Was this a collaboration with Corona?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a so-so white head. Aroma is corn meal and hop spice. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough and a bit of mild hops. Meh. Too close to an American macro; perhaps a little better.
