unclemattie (4199) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
12oz black bottle. Gold color, white foam. Smells of straw, apples, pale malts. Tastes of very thin pale malts. Not really sure what the taste of Sapphire hops are. Well balanced, better than most AB-InBev. A hopped version of Budweiser Black label. (3609)

ReggieDunlap (3084) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has light citrus and sweet grass. Flavor follows suit. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with a slightly sweet dry grassy finish. Better than regular Becks.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours light golden with a thin mostly receding white head. Notes of biscuit, metallic, herbal hops and bitter resin. Thin bodied with lively carbonation. A stronger, more bitter version of Becks.

This made me vomit, literally. Most crappy lagers at least don’t have aspertane and ammonia as their main ingredients, but this crap does. This is horrible with a capital H.

...not beer. This is one of the worst "beverages" that I’ve ever drunk. Let me save you the cost of a six-pack: Mix 11 oz of water with 1/4 oz vomit, 1/4 oz urine, and 1/2 oz crisco; drink; wait 10 minutes; ask someone to punch you in the side of the head. There you have it: Beck’s Sapphire. ...made in accordance with Reinheitsgebot: no way in hell. This is the type of beer that ruins your evening...the type of beer that makes you want to kick your sister...the type of beer that inspires contempt and suspicion.

demitriustown (1070) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a little of the hops in there, but has this funky stanky foot odder as well. Appearance is golden with a thick white head that diminishes rather quickly. Taste is crisp clean, with a maltiness and a bit of nastiness to it as well. Palate there is a light lingering hoppiness in the aftertaste but medium to low carbonation int he mouth. Overall, Not that good and overpriced IMHO. Cheers!

GT2 (8464) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
355mL two-year researched proprietary black glass bottle. Pours a brilliantly clear, bright golden pour with decent sparkling carbonation. Weak, fizzing out head. Not even listed as pilsner, fail. Nose is all sugar cube, macro adjunct BS, grenadine, mint. Taste is mint, cardboard, same old same old BS macro junk. Mealy apple, chalky, minty palate. Very disappointing. So two years to make the bottle and probably two days to hone the recipe. Seems about right.

My notes consists only of the word SWAG in capital letters. I suppose I was not drinking it at enough of a high-end occasion.

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Clear golden coloured body with a soapy white head, a few bubbles and not much to look at. Aroma of pale malt, a hint of light hops and a bit of unfinished sugars - not much else. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic taste up front with just about nothing behind, except for a tiny bit of sugars, no hops, no malt, no earth. Aftertaste relatively simple with some metallic bitterness, a bit of sugar and cardboardie malt. Overall, a pretty bad beer, but at least it wasn’t terribly offensive - no green bottle means that it’s not skunky - that’s about all that’s going for it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Harris Teeter in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 04-February-2013 sampled later in the day after a hockey game in Washington.

Golden colour, Smells kind of like apple juice. I kind of taste the hops coming through but very faintly. Its smooth but thats about it.
