Was offered this at a dinner, never had Beck's before so here's a review.

A: Pours a clear, light, golden yellow color with a 1/4 inch white head that dissipates fast with medium amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of wheat, grains, grass, citrus

T: Tastes alright, just another lager, mellow flavor, grains, wheat, hints of citrus, bit of hops, bit on the sweet side.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, mellow flavor, fairly balanced.

O: Over all, just another lager. It's not bad, its quite alright, I could down a handful of these, they're just alright, worth trying if given but not really worth seeking out in my opinion.

Beck's Dark is one of my everyday, after work go to beers. Easy to drink, flavorful, crisp, simple. Don't need to think a lot about what I'm drinking. When I saw the Sapphire bottle at my grocery store, I though it was a variation of Beck's dark. I was a little disappointed, but still intrigued to try it out anyway. Even though it's been awhile since I've had regular Beck's.

Color is a clear , somewhat bubbly, golden, light amber color. Very quick head and no residual foam.

The aroma is a note or two of faintly toasted crackers and a grass clipping or two.

Crisp, mellow, and a better defined toasty malt flavor than I expected. Typical grassy hop flavors. A little Earthy. Overall, pretty simple and easy to drink. Worth a try if you like pilsners. I wouldn't mind trying a side by side taste test of Beck's and Sapphire.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some medium yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a mottled thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin to medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit malts with hints of light floral hops and just a hint of sweet banana.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of grainy biscuit malts with light flavors of floral hops. Light amounts bitterness in the finish which fades quickly but overall this beer is a little too sweet.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick.

O: Sounded like a good concept but it does not deliver on it - I was hoping for a showcase of the Saphir hops but it turned out to just be a slightly sweet Euro Lager. Glad that I had the opportunity to give it a shot but I will not be getting this one again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, I didn't see a bottled date. For some reason I was expecting this to be dark, instead its a crystal clear light yellow color with a long lasting white head. The smells are of light crisp grass smells. The feel is medium light. The taste isn't what I like, a light crisp hops, mild malts, not every appealing.

Poured from a "stylish" black bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear pale gold in color, with an airy two-inch head of foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Pale malt, very faint hop prescence, rather creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very ho-hum pilsner.
