Poured it into the 12 oz. Sam Adams glass. Clear and gold, with a very short-lived head. No lacing on the glass. Aroma is almost absent, as all I got was a faint whiff of any malt. Taste isn't too bad, but there is very little distinctive about it. It just has a little sweetness (but nothing I can put my finger on) and little hop bitterness on the finish. Moderate carbonation, a little heavy on the finish. Thinner in texture. It might be the one I'd choose out of a selection of mediocre beers but not one I'll ever seek out again. Of note, the beer color on the packaging is decidedly NOT the color of the beer when poured from the bottle. Also interesting, brewed in St. Louis (by the AB part of InBev-AB), so it's not even a German import anymore. But clearly trying to appeal to that market.

Clear gold with a two finger head that leaves quickly leaving a few splatters of lace.
Smell is malty with a bit of grassy hops.
Taste is sweet malts with a touch of herbal grassy hops.
Mouthfel is light to medium with adequete carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet with a almost no hop bitterness.
Overall a German malt liquor.
Too sweet not enough hop presence.
The German answer to Bud Light Platinum or Miller Fortune. Why bother?

One problem with this beer is that it isn't a dark beer, but it nevertheless comes in a black bottle and advertises the name "Sapphire," which gives you certain expectations that it then fails to meet. It has a very floral smell, and this comes out in the taste, which just isn't much to write home about. It isn't an unpleasant beer, per se, but there just isn't much to it. It is very easy to drink, but also highly forgettable.
