Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Pale yellow brew with small white head. Head is very active and fizzles fast. Aroma of corn. Taste is sweet, corn and malt. Starts sweet and ends sweet. This beverage takes its name from "German Sapphire Hops" but I detect scant hops in the finish (or anywhere else for that matter.)

Damn. I thought this would at least be a dunkel or something. Nice deceptive bottle InBev. Bummer. Clear, extremely pale golden with a small whitish head. Aroma of grain and a little hint of citrus. It tastes like Frosted Flakes but with water instead of milk. Light bodied, low carbonation. For a mass-market pale lager is decent, but that’s not saying much.

Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Caramel aromas. Soft with soapy caramel upfront turning metallic in the bready finish.

brokensail (15764) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Clear golden pour with a short lived with head. The aroma is quite sweet and corny. Some sugar, a touch of metal, grass, and bread. A bit on the watery side, though. Grainy sweetness to the flavor. Corn, mild bread, water, and quite a bit of grass. Some metallic notes on the finish and minimal bitterness and hop flavor.

rumproasts (4862) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2013
bottle. a bit too sweet, and fairly watery. at least the bottle is nice -- it seemed from the press release for this that they spent a lot more time designing the bottle than crafting the beer. could be a lot worse though.

3fourths (9107) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2013
i mistakenly bought this thinking it was made in Germany. that’s what I get for not following the happenings of Brauerei Beck & Co. lightly effervescent clear gold body with a short white head. vitamin powder, sweet apple juice and sweet cooked rice in the nose with hints of chlorine and white raisin. light body, high carbonation, low bitterness, medium sweetness - the sweetness and fizzy carbonation feels like apple hooch alcopop. horribly bubbly and thin and watery texture with grating carbonation and sweaty lemon oil hops.

Foxbush (1772) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12 ozbottle This appears to be a AB product the pale alger poured a crystal clear light copper color with small head that dissapated. The aroma was sweet like cake. The taste is like sweet bread and not much in the hops area. the medium body lager had soft carbonation. It is a surprisingly smooth beer with a clean finish with some sweetness.

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle from Spirits Manahawkin, had to find out what a sapphire hop supposedly taste like, and apparently it tastes like nothing. Bland cereal malt, grass, clippings, light watered down floral hops, there is no reason to ever make this beer.

"BECKS" my red haired ass! This is made in St. Louie by Bud! The rear label claims it was brewed under the German purity laws of 1516. So why do I detect field corn? Darker corn water pour with almost no head and zero lacing on the glass. Aroma is truly weird. I can’t place it. But it doesn’t smell like anything natural. Flavor is flat, with forced bittering. Little thirst quenching carbonation and not a very nice flavor either. Almost no aftertaste. There is a weird "astringent" taste to it, sort of like a Band-Aid would taste like if it were liquid. I paid $6.99 for a six pack of bottles which is a zillion dollars too much. Fuck this slop!!!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pourz a clear gold with minimal white head. Aroma is mostly grains. Taste is light bitter. Corn and grains. These sapphire hops dont do a whole lot for me. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, its kinda a dog.
