More information about Saphirator Heller Doppelbock

Nittenau "Saphirator" - pale, hop-fermented Doppelbock

The suffix "-ator" always indicates a bottom-fermented Doppelbock, a beer with an original wort of at least 18%. This suffix is derived from the Doppelbock of the Paulaner Brewery in Munich, Salvator. Until the early 20th century, it was common to call any doppelbock brewed in Bavaria Salvator. So it was much more of a style designation than a brand name. In 1906, today's Paulaner Brauerei München had the name protected and is still allowed to use it today. All other breweries refer to their Doppelbocks with the suffix "-ator".

In our case, the alcoholic heavyweight is called "Saphirator". However, this golden yellow sip of brewing art is extremely devious. Both its 20% original wort and the 7.9% alcohol are not noticeable to the inclined beer drinker. Cold hopping with the noble aroma hop variety Saphir gives the beer an herbaceous, fruity bouquet and harmonizes skilfully with the caramel sweetness of the malt composition.

On the one hand, there are no longer any regional differences, since any desired chemical parameter can easily be achieved by technological means. On the other hand, with the existing price war, the purely profit-oriented brands are interested in keeping their costs as low as possible: Faster production techniques, fewer hops, shorter storage, less flavor. This equalization of taste not only leads to beers from different brands becoming more and more similar and tasting almost the same. It has even gone so far that different styles of beer from industrial breweries taste the same and differ only on the label. The trend toward neutral one-size-fits-all beer and neutral one-size-fits-all taste. In times of such tightrope walks along the purity law on the part...
