0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
...not beer. This is one of the worst "beverages" that Iíve 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: Beckís 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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 wasnít terribly offensive - no green bottle means that itís not skunky - thatís about all thatís 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.

Yellow color, blue bottle, light head, sweet taste, just drink it when it's really cold, tried a sip after I forgot about it and it really declined....

12 oz bottle, smell that corn! Nice little bite, but not too metallic!
OK, call me a "beer snob", but what is Beckís doing brewing a beer like this?
What market are they trying to hit? I know , the "urban crowd". They are already over served with crap! Why do the brothers need swill like this?
They donít! Shame on Becks. What a waste. I will not call it a pour. This is a "throwaway". Throw the recipe away dudes. Really? Why?
