2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an effervescent light gold - small white head that settles into a lasting film. Aroma is mild with some bittering hops, honey-like malt and hint of citrus - not half bad. Flavor is light and generally sweet with some bitter hop notes on the back end - some corn-like flavors and citrusy notes throughout. Palate is a bit more oily than anticipated and good for the style. Definitely not a go-to beer or anything, but would happily enjoy a few of these at a social function if placed next to most other pale lagers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not as bad as some of the reviews it is getting. I think is a much better offering than budweiser black crown. Has a decent hoppy finish with a pretty smooth taste. Decent beer

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Meh, another attempt by AB to edge into the upper end market. Still reeks of AB. If I were at a function and there was Bud Lite, Bud, Corona along with Sapphire, I’d go for the latter, but that’s about all good I have to say about it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Kroger. Light pour with a nice white head. Aroma is faint and maybe a little sweet. Taste is musty grain and just kinda there. Not a bad finish.
