Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, pale yellow, mildly effervescent, with a fine, creamy white head. Doughy pale malt nose, hints of lemon, white bread. Very pleasant flavor, lightly sweet with dry, pale malts, hints of zesty citrus, some mellow sugars. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with mellow bitterness, dry dough, hints of grass and pine, lemon peel, pale malts. A very easy-drinking little pale ale.

"Pretty mellow beer that’s pretty nice and quaffable, but thats not quite enough for a pale ale priced as high as Mikkellers are. Grassy earthy hops with a touch of pine and light bitterness."

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

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.

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---

Temptation (257) - - JAN 14, 2014
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.
