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

Embrouille (2827) - - JAN 28, 2013
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.

ElDesmadre (1553) - 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 (2472) - 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.

davidtjm (367) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Clear, bright gold pour with a thin foam head, aroma is earthy, lychee. Taste is initial sweetness set back by earthy hops notes, malty finish, some fruity elements coming and going. Enjoyable

jonas (5641) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle. Ight hazy golden, white head..grassy and fruity nose. Fullbodied sweet typical maibockish base, sparkly grassy and ciric hop counterpoint which breaks it open nicely. Orange, lemongrass, lime aftertaste.

Pailhead (4814) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of honey, cereal/grain, apple, yeast, and faint straw notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a large creamy white head that has very good retention. There is a lot of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a honey and a touch of apple. The finish has light-moderate straw with some faint cereal notes and a hint of spice. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

obguthr (3835) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Skunky hay nose, mint and lemon zest also present. Milky yellow, slight greenish hue, thick head. Medium body, mint and lemon, grass. Alcohol slightly noticeable. A bock with flavor and character, not necessarily my favorite hop bill, but enjoyable.

SperkeleForce (541) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Bottle 33 CL. Pours light gold with small lacing head. Notes of citrus, grass, malts. Nice suprise for an bock. Tastes like a pils.
