Not a huge fan of their flagship beer, but it's been a while, so what the heck...indiscernible dating code of 13037...
Pours an effervescent straw color with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. Scant head retention & lacing,
S: Some perfumy & soapy hops, plus grassyness, cooked cereal shows when warm
T: Follows the nose, a hint of pears, sweat breadyness plus dryness up front. Cooked cereal & soapy hops as this warms, plus more pears & dryness. Finishes with slight citrus hop snap, pears & a bit of breadyness
MF: Light/medium bodied, slight carbonation, pretty good balance. Thins out more as this warms
Not a great pils, but alright. I could see this being an option around here, could do a few before tiring of this. About what I expected

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.
