2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grassy aroma with weird sugar candy/gum background. Fizzy yellow appearance, a shade darker then the STL team’s home brands.Very sweet with hint apple. Light body with a minor bite. Not at all what I expected, not as good as the original Beck’s, better than ’Bud Light Platinum,’ which it is most similar to in that company’s hierarchy.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 This is a re-review as my opinion has changed the more I have tried this beer (not for the better)
Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass
Appearance: 1" off white head recedes quickly with mild lacing. Color is a clear light amber. Plenty of carbonation evident, but carbonation disappears and becomes flat within a few minutes
Aroma: fairly mild. Caramel sweetness, lightly toasted malt, mild hops.
Mouthfeel: light and watery. Finish is dry.
Flavor: there is a strange flavor in this beer that I cannot put my finger own, but it is some sort of cloying sweetness. The hops do not seem to combine well with this sweet/syrupy flavor at all.
Overall: I liked this beer pretty well the first time I have tried it. I have since had it 3-4 more times and it tastes worse to me each time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Pilsner glass
Price: $14.99 for a 12-pack
Purchased: Dec, 2013
Misc.: Very stylish looking black bottle
AROMA: honey, cloves, floral, faint circus, bread, banana/apple bread, caramel, More like a pilsner. I really liked.
APPERANCE: A light honey golden clear with 1-to-2 inches of a white head which settled fast (Which is fine with me). Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom.
TASTE: It doesn’t’ have the bitterness of Beck’s (regular), but it does have a nice bit of floral hop flavor to it. Caramel sweetness, bread crust and some floral spice.
PALATE. It was very crisp, sharp and smooth. A light /medium bodied lager.
OVERALL: Far from being a greatest pilsner in the universe, but these reviews do seem a bit negative against Becks Sapphire for some reason. The 6% ABV went down very smooth. I actually enjoyed this beer and would not think twice about buying another 12 of these to keep on hand for a nice cold one.
SERVED WITH: From Steak and Potatoes to Pizza and Wings.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are a mix of grain and grass and are not good at all. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Part of a mix sixer at Albertsons in Vegas. Pours a very light golden colour with a frothy white head, decent retention and some foamy lacing. The nose is pretty horrible though. Bad veggies, adjuncts, crap water. The taste isn’t much better with fake malts and mild sweetness in the finish. Maybe the normal Beck’s is not the best beer, but it sure is much better than this piece of poo. This is terrible that they want A-B to produce this for them, with their name on it. Beautiful black bottle and label. Thankfully nice to look at.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle in a pet cup. Malty and slightly malty for a lager. Decent. Better than the rating indicates.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
16oz can for a buck from a gas station. Pours gold with a fizzy force-carbonated head. Aroma is corn and very, very faint hops. Taste is typical pale lager with a bit more hops in the finish. I wouldn’t give this any rewards, but it’s pretty good for a pale lager.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
No aroma, no taste, almost no color, and no palate, not much head., not much in the way to redeem this beer.
