From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. There is a number on the label that reads 12363-SX23. US Brewed. Tried on January 27, 2013.
It pours a deeper golden yellow than some lagers with a foamy white head that builds up and fizzles down to a ring. But the ring remains.
Aroma of subdued malts, bread, yeast, and a slight hop zing. Overall about what one would expect for this style.
The body is light to medium but generally smooth.
The taste begins with the bready malts but it does not take long for the clean, crisp sapphire hops to kick in on the tail end. Not much of a lingerer. Fairly easy to drink.
In some respects I would liken this to a slightly bolder Bud Light Platinum.

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.
