look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours out a really clear off-yellow to a slight amber with 1/3 finger of white suds.
Smell is slight hops and lemon peel. Some sugars in the nose.
Taste is bland and mellow. Aftertaste of lemon rind and alcohol.
Mouthfeel is just a tad sticky and fairly boring.
Overall this isn't much of a beer. I think it's budweiser in a black Beck's bottle. In fact the bottle says St. Louis , Mo.

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.

12oz bottle purchased at Market Basket. Pours a light yellow body with little to no head to speak of. Bready malt shares the aroma with a note of spicy continental hops. Spicy herbal hops share the flavor with bready malt. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad. The hop flavor, while far from robust, gives you a good sense of what sapphire hops can bring to the table.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden hue with long lasting, foamy, white head. Nose is of honey and bready malt. Body is light-medium and smooth. Finish is watery. Taste is of bready malt, some honey and hint of hops. Nice drain pour. At least I did not pay for this.

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?
