COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

AbouAli (88) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Couleur paille, presque pas de mousse, pas de lacing,nez floral avec une note de levure, se boit facilement malgré l’alcool bien caché par l’amertume prononcée. Touche de malt pour adoucir

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottled@AIH40 (from Bier Zwerg). Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, some slight fresh herbal notes along with a nice bready maltiness to it. Flavour is nice floral, herbal and grassy mix with the bready malts and some earthy notes kicking in at a later point. After the malts kick in it takes a while and the bitterness does kick in as well, leaving a nice long bitter taste in the mouth.

Saeglopur (434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 3, 2014
330 ml bottle, about 1 year old.
Clear, golden body, with a medium, creamy, white head,
Aroma of flowers, citrus, grass, honey, candy, some bread, some alcohol.
Taste is about the same, with more bready notes.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes alcoholic, bitter-sweet, a bit fruity, with some herbs.

Nice one. Not that different to other beers of style, except some citric fruits. Maybe the Saphir hops faded a bit too much after a year. But overall still a nice, well balanced example of this style, with a slightly stronger alcohol presence.

Ragnampiza (515) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 29, 2014
330 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Rich golden yellow, pretty clear, with a small, frothy and not too persistent bright white head. On the nose pale/bready malts, some burnt caramel and slightly toasted malts, peaches and apricots, a hint of white grapes and some alchool presence. Extremely sweet, even cloying I’d say. Very sirupy and quite dry, pretty much only malt forward. A little yeast influence too. Unpleasent dusty and almost rubbery aftertaste. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Bad bottle, or just not for me.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Malty first and foremost but the lemon tea and apricot notes from the hops are more than welcome. Tastewise it suffers from that common pale bock deficiency - it is alcoholic astringent. They poured in also generous amounts of hops to create an underlined bitterness so that not all is lost. But I still feel lowering the ABV by two points would do the beer really good.

BeerViking (2686) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Craft Beer Store Hamburg, straw coloured with a fast-settling head, nose is corn and herby hops, acrid-bitter and vegetal over a sweetish body. A little too dry and acrid for my taste.
