3rd Wiener Bierfest, Vienna, Austria. Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok.
SZÁ: Hát én ennek már nem érzek semmi izét. Hogy ez pils lenne, ki van csukva. Inkább kőnyalogató ez is.
KS: Tapír ez a zafír.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl Bottle. Appearance is clear yellow color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is straight sugary sweetness with little to no other malt or hop distinction. Taste is also fairly sweet with candy sugar the main motif with some slight grassy hops. Palate is light-bodied, fairly smooth texture, slightly watery, average carbonation, and a sweet finish. Just you average, cheap Pilsner.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
25/08 0.33 l bottle from Bier Kultur nine-pack purchased at some Interspar, Villach. It poured pale yellow body with small, short living head. Stinky cornflakes, honey and stale socks in aroma. Flavor was all malt, acidic, somewhat metallic and corny, just like a NA beer, but a low quality one. No traces of hops, except at some point in its finish. Couldn’t finish it! And I thought it’s bad for a pale lager, now I see it’s declared as a pils! Hops please? How could I like it, something went wrong here! Might rerate sometime.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with and courtesy of heavy (thanks!)
Poured a yellow-golden body with a small head. Stale malty nose, notes of jam. The taste, however, improves a lot, an interesting lemongras-like aroma hop dominates, with the full, slightly dull and overbearing maltiness backing it up. Creamy. Ok, heavy really, REALLY didn’t like this one, dunno why. It’s a complex, solid lager that’d really shine with a better malty background, or fresh from the brewery. Not bad, definitely not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed with tasty "Saphir" hop - therefore the name. Very nice nose, fruity, flowery, slightly yeasty. Small, quickly vanishing head. Average light golden appearance in the glass. Pleasant taste, mainly hoppy, still a hint of malty sweetness. Dry, hoppy, slightly acidic in the aftertaste. A well done Saphir Pilsener, but not the best Saphir beer I have tasted.
