Product of Saint Louis USA (really?) and it shows. Pours to a pale gold color and 3/4 inch head that falls to a 1/8 inch layer of foam. Lacing is low to none. Aroma is faint and grainy with a hint of played out noble hops. Flavor is bland and boozy with a cheap beer taste you wouldn't even expect from Becks. Grainy, slightly bready and sweet with a dry, slick finish. Mouthfeel is OK. Overall, a disappointing beer that goes along with the Bud Platinum trend. Never again.

Tonights palate washer.

Not much to say. Guys, this stuff is brewed in St.Louis, not Germany. Just because it says German beer doesn't make it good.

Becks version of BL Platinum and a skunky one at that.

Hipster area only.

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.
