Die unschuldige helle Farbe täuscht. Das intensive Sudverfahren resultiert in einem sehr hohen Alkoholgehalt, der aber durch unvorstellbare Mengen der Hallertauer Aromahopfensorte SAPHIR dezent verschleiert wird. Schönramer Saphir Bock ist daher einer der süffigsten und außergewöhnlichsten Vertreter seiner Gattung. Stark - Stärker - Schönramer Saphir Bock

Bottled 33cl. Clear pale yellow with a white head. (Surprisingly pale appearance). Honey, melon, spicy hops and cookie dough showing up in the nose which is deeply inviting. Good bitterness. Lovely malt back. Like drinking nectar.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2014
bottle from pivni rozmanitost. golden with a modest head; full aroma of red stone fruit, wet rocks; restrained sticky sweetness, lightly grassy/weedy with a lightly tinny finish. hoping this will lead to more experimentation with hop use in bavarian bocks

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle:   Pale yellow, large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Strong stray/hay aroma.   Somewhat of a sweet grassy start, straw and hay.   Pretty clean, albeit there is a slight cereal or mealy aspect on the backside.   Sweet, but mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes witih lots of cereal and mealy notes.   Not as clean as others, but feels hefty.   Tiz decent I guess, but despite it being clean I am not a big fan of the mealiness.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 12, 2014
[Thanks to kevnic2008]. Bottle. Golden colour with a white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma has notes of alcohol, light hoppy and some sweet hints. Flavor is uncompensated, too much alcohol that hides all the rest of characteristics.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Flasche. - Helles Goldgelb, klar. Lt. Eigenwerbung wurde hier mit „unvorstellbaren Mengen" der Hallertauer Aromahopfensorte Saphir der hohe Alkoholgehalt „verschleiert“. Das Ergebnis ist nicht völlig überzeugend: die Hopfenaromen sind tatsächlich sehr stark aber etwas einseitig, harzig und wenig fruchtig; auch können sie leider die sirupartige Malzsüße nicht verdecken, sondern höchstens niederhalten. - Das Ergebnis dieses Streits zwischen Sirup und Saphir ist recht einseitig und geschmacklich nicht ganz überzeugend. Muß ich kein zweites Mal trinken.

mgajdaczewa (301) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bock inny niż wszystkie inne. Wyglądem przypomina Tyskie, Lecha czy jakiegokolwiek innego koncernowego lagera, cudna karbonacja stworzyła mini huragan w szklance, w który gapiać możnaby się godzinami... W zapachu mocno słodowo, czuć moc brzeczki, ale nie moc piwa. Ale niestety mało złożony ten zapach - taki lagerowy. W smaku również wyraźnie słodowy, goryczka schowana, czuć ciężar trunku, ale alkohol dobrze schowany. Kawał treściwego, ale wciąż nudnego piwa, które powyżej trójki nie podskoczy.

edpeg (793) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Pours in pale light body slightly cloudy with nice white creamy long and dense head. Aroma is floral hops, hops, grass, and some slight fruity note but overall not very aromatic head. Palate is medium full- bodied, and slick, carbonation is soft, with little fizzy kick and mouthful. Taste is hoppy but not exactly bitter, although ABV is 8% it is really easy to drink, ABV hardly noticeable and the hops added bring very refreshing and enjoyable drinking experience, Finish has fruity hops flavors and some maltiness. Overall best Bock I have had so far, although due to aromahops does not taste as traditional German bocks.

Hugi (322) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2013
Golden and clear with a medium, white, but not very stable head. Intensive smell of flowers, hops, elder flowers and herbs. At first sweetish taste, then more and more bitterness with a nice floral/herbal note. Full body sweet but bitter finish.

Bottle. It pours a very clear yellow color with a frothy white head. The aroma is surprisingly hop forward with light catty, earthy notes with some hay and round pilsner maltiness. The flavor is again strong with the saphir character. Somewhat noble, spicy with hints of lemon lime. Strong bitterness. The pale malt character is round and bready without being fat or doughy. Finishes on a spicy bitter note. Really nice hoppy bock. I loved it.
