16oz can picked up at a gas station, poured into a weizen glass.
A: Dark straw with a nice foamy head that dissipated relatively quickly.
S: Smells like your typical American Light Adjunct. Sweet grain and some hop bitterness.
T: Taste actually seems to improve upon warming up a little and pilsner hints start to emerge from what initially appeared to be something Budweiser-esque.
M: Pretty carbonated, this one is, with a thin body.
O: I was glad when I found this as a 16oz single - was interested in giving it a shot but not wanting to invest in the committment that is a six-pack. There was not indication on the can as to what style they were going for and "Sapphire" sounded like a Zima reboot or something. BA listed it as a pilsner, which sounds right and it's not a bad effort considering the source. Not exciting, but I've had worse examples from much fancier outfits.

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.

3/5 rDev +9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 6%.
Appearance: It has a tall soapy head which settles out quickly leaving not much lacing. The beer itself has a clear golden body with some visible carbonation.
Smell: There is a white bread like maltiness with light candy like notes in the background. It also has a slight hop presence.
Taste / Palate: There is not a lot going on here. It has a light white bready like malt base with a quick hint of sweetness, a slight touch of grainy alcohol and then a clean dry finish with light hop notes.
