Bottle to lager glass. A quite nice pale ale that pours golden. Aroma of hay. Medium body with heavy carbonation but a very smooth and nice finish.

Decent hoppy pale ale. Skillfully made, but the Saphir hops just aren’t very interesting.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig malzig, fruchtig bitter. Geschmack angenehm fruchtig herb, malzig fruchtig.

Bottle at home shared with jeevan. Pours hazy pale yellow, thin white head. Aromas of bready malt and light lemon citrus. Not a right lot going on. taste is similar. Crisp dry finish. OK.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa. Junio de 2013 de Zombier. Cuerpo ligero - medio bastante fácil de beber con sabores y aromas bastante frescos, herbáceos y con un amargor final también bastante ligero y poco duradero. Normal, aunque no estaría mal repetir de nuevo para recordar mas matices. ---según etiqueta::: hop húmeda sencilla pale ale elaborada en colaboración con hoppecruyt hop agricultor. Ingredientes agua, malta pálida, lupulo Saphir fresco y levadura---

The less interesting side of Mikkeller, a beer with a slight yeasty aroma and a little bit of lemon zest in the mouthfeel. Nothing more: too bland, even for a pale ale. A pity.

Mikkeller. Saphir, 5,5%. denne øl er en ale brygge med frisk humle ( saphir )Duft: lidt jorbær duft. minder mig mest af alt om en lys pilsner i duften. Smag: lidt citrus smag med en blød aftersmag. denne øl er mere for hr og fru dk ind for dem som godt kan lide god øl. den smager godt men siger mig ikke noget

Light pale yellow color, slightly hazy color, small white head, lace. Light-bodied. Grass, lemongrass in the flavor which is dry and a bit woody even. Refreshing.

Tap at Max’s. Pours clear gold with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, floral notes, a touch of grass, and some lemon zest. Flavor is dry, bready malts forward with light fruit esters, faint grassy hops, and some light floral notes; dry finish. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

Bottle from Kris Wines. Light pale almost yellowish colour, thin head. Light spicy floral fruit hop aroma. Quite modest taste, initialy a bit bland, but gradually I got into this Saphir hop with it’s restrained bitterness and lightly complex flavour. In fact I wish this had come in a bigger bottle, was just getting going, err dunno. Wasn’ amaazing but could be very sessionable.
