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 (2831) - - 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.

Russo (1937) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2015
Clear golden color with an amazing and adherent white head keeping a nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of corn and light citrus. Flavor is also malty and bitter slightly alcohol notes. Medium to high carbonation and medium body with a bitter and salty finish.

JoeinDahlem (1396) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2015
Light-colored bocks of this strength are a bit like most Tripels for me -- too sweet and strong to be useful. This one neatly solves that problem by being dryish and plainly bitter, accentuated by some juicy herbal hop flavor. Lovely bright greenish-gold color. Still strong, but dangerous instead of wasteful.

Theydon_Bois (14313) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle at Fritz Brauhaus, Greifswald, 18/07/15. Clear golden with a well appointed white crown of bubbles that retains well. Nose is sweet malt, caramel, light citric notes, pale malt, trace of booze. Taste comprises mellow fruit rinds, caramel, vanilla, straw, citric notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a boost level coming in around 5.99. Decent enough bock.

Cerbier (558) - - OCT 13, 2015
0,33l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht wie ein typisch bayrisch Helles. Im Geschmack sehr intensiv nach Malz, Vanille und Biskuit. Die Bockhörner sind gut versteckt.

alteregoo (477) - POLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Piana średnio obfita, biała, drobna, niezbyt trwała. Barwa złota, klarowna. Aromat delikatny, przede wszystkim słodowy, ciasteczkowy, w tle nuty trawiaste, czysto chmielowe. W smaku bardzo podobnie, słodowo, dość słodko, troszkę herbatników, biszkoptów, pikantnych przypraw i kwiatowych nut. Goryczka nieduża, trawiasta, pozostaje dłuższą chwilę w posmaku. Alkohol świetnie wkomponowany, lekko grzeje w przełyku. W afterteasie nieco estrów gruszkowo-mirabelkowych. Wysycenie średnie, drobniuteńkie. Bardzo klasyczne niemieckie piwo, poprawne, całkiem pijalne przy swojej mocy, choć przydałoby się nieco więcej chmielu na aromat i goryczkę, jak to miało miejsce choćby w ich Pilsie.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from a bottle shop in Bamberg. Fruity and malty smell with caramel. Sweet and fruity taste with some toasted sugar and sweet malts. Noticeable but not overpowering ABV.

crossovert (9983) - Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2015
33cl bottle. Within its best by date by quite a while (8 months). Clear golden pour. It is floral and spicy, some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavor is pleasant herbal and spicy, some sweetness, its actually pleasant and dry, hint of lemon and vanilla.

Senka (964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 18, 2015
33cl BBE 26.02.16 Strong hopps and malt aroma and taste. Pours golden clear with medium thin head. Abv is hidden, but the body, carbonation and aftertaste remind you that it is a good beer. A nice example of Heller bock. Thank you.
