COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beck’s Dark is rich and smooth with a lingering, slightly sweet aftertaste. The deep ebony color is the result of specially roasting the barley malt. Unlike dark ales, Beck’s Dark is a bottom-fermented lager which creates a robust flavor and full body while retaining the refreshing properties of a lager beer.

Is this really a dark beer? No. This is very likable as a drinker. This is not for the serious dark beer drinker... right along the same line as St. Pauli Girl ’Dark’. It is a nice looking dark red. Translucent not like the ’real’ dark beers. Has s good fall seasonal flavor.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 24 OZ green bottle, best before 10.2002 drank on Feb 2, 2002. Clear dark orange/brown with a thin off-white head, aroma is of cardboard, stale malts and sharp yeast, starts and ends very lightly bitter. This just tastes nasty, in a cardboard sort of way.

LuckeyHaskins99 (180) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2002
A likeable ’beginner’s dark’ beer. Nothing to fear, a little weak compared to heavier like Mackeson’s, but simple enough. Affordably priced enough to bring to parties.

ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - FEB 6, 2002
reasonably good dark. dark brown color with a short lived fizzy head. has a nice taste of roasted malt that is just a little sugary. smooth but a little over carbonated makes it too fizzy.

Straight from a sealed 12-pack, this came out tasting skunked. Thin, disappointing, waste of money.

adamlau (76) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2002
A deceivingly dark beer with a deceiving lack of character. Nice, open aroma of malt. Front is very short. Mid is slightly sweet with a light hint of malted grains. Ends clean, leaving something to be desired. Carbonation dominates the scene if left out to warm. Inferior to Heineken Dark.

Aurelius (5032) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2002
Another mainstay BBQ beer. A bit more metallic and less malty than St. Pauli Dark. Thinnish.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 For a dark, it has a mediocre taste, and seems much too carbonated. The head is also weak, and it doesn't linger at all on the palate. I can't even recommend it for people just beginning to drink darker beers, but I will say that you can do much worse with other mass-market brews. Drink it in a pinch, that's about it.

Below, Axle3380 got it all wrong...ohhhhh he likes the regular...he sucks...drink the dark over the regular, a little bitter and also somewhat carbonated, but $2.75 for the 24 oz. bottle is the intriguing factor.
