3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a darker brown color that is rather flat with not much carbonation or head to it. The scent is slightly heavier than a cheap adjunct lager but not by much. The taste is rather light for being a dark colored beer. It’s basically a light colored German pilsner with a dark brown color added. Drinks rather smooth and easily as it has almost the same texture as water. Some grassy, cheap wheat taste stand out. At least it’s drinkable!

I really enjoyed this brew more than I initially thought I would. Makes a nice addition to any end of the summer camping trip. Straight from the bottle, so not sure how dark this actually is, but its nice and malty.

It tastes like regular beck with very distinct dark malt taste. Has that standard German beer hall taste. Lovely

For a dunkel, this isn’t all that great...until you remember that this is a Beck’s beer. For a Beck’s, not bad. Light roastiness, weak body, and next to no aroma.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Duane on bottling day. Dark brown with a minimal head. Aroma of darker malt, mildly skunked noble hops and grains. Taste is in line with aroma and a little sticky and skunky.

Pours a dark mahogany with a creamy tan head. Nose is of malt. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is caramelized malt with a hint of hops on the finish. Very smooth and satisfying. Pairs well with roast beef sandwiches.

12 oz bottle The beer poured a deep black with a nice head that stayed with the beverage. The beer had the taste some roasted malt. The beer had a medium body and sticky taste. The carbonation was average. Not bad for an everyday beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark brown with little to no head. Aroma is faintly of wet dog. Taste is astringent, bitter, and with a undertones of sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation.
This isn’t a great beer, but I don’t mind having one from time to time.

Pours dark brown. Smells of caramel and sweet grains with a little roast. Better than Beck's lager. Still not a great beer.
