look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Nice golden color, rising bubbles. A white head that leaves an even film, but no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, cereal grains, faint sour hops.

Taste: Clean, sweet. Malts and barley mostly, and a sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, dry.

Overall: Boring.

Serving type: bottle

Beck's Sapphire (2014) - 6% ABV. Pours with a thick head that dissipates to decent lacing. Red amber hue. Decent carbonation. Light mouthfeel. Wet. Very malty and sweet on the front palate. More of an Oktoberfest or Markzen style beer. Lots of barley, bread, and wheat. Smooth syrup sugar-- caramel. Mid-palate there is just a quick hint of hops. A slight alcohol bite. Rolls back to malt, syrup, and wheat. Slight alcohol and maple syrup after taste. Very light taste. Drinkable. Hiding in its ABV. Extremely smooth. I think the problem is that you expect more from the Sapphire hops as you should-- it's a good German beer, but if you're looking for bite you will be disappointed. It is a good beer-- but it isn't hoppy. It's malt and creamy. Had they labeled it Marzen it would be more well received, but it is what it is as they say. 3.5. Good.
