2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: October 12, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: celebrating PSU’s unBILLeivable comeback against Michigan--and my son’s fifth birthday... APPEARANCE: "dark" velvet black as night body with a brownish roadside snake-colored head; lacing is nonexistent, with a random streak or spot... AROMA: classic Beck’s ping/tang hops with a doughy funky roundness; a "dirtier" version of the pilsner...PALATE: slick and oily; lightly bodied with subtle activity at the teeth...TASTE: bready, doughy and slightly malty; light hops do not really add balance or memorability...OVERALL: on the plus side, sessionable and autumnal; on the negative, almost indistinguishable from the Oktoberfest, save the presence of extra doughy malts...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a ton going on here but it’s drinkable at least, and a little better than regular becks. Dark brown pour with ok head. Light tangy finish. Not offensive, just boring. Bottle at press club.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Looks nice in the glass - clear ruddy dark color with one finger of dense tan head that settles to a persistent thin head. aroma has hints of roasted malts with a mineral / metallic overtone. Taste is sweet roasted malts up front and through the middle of the swallow but settles into a muddy sweet maltiness with metallic overtones at the end. No so good.

Bottle. Mahogany color with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. Flavor is roasted malt with a sweet but metalic taste on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Green bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of grass, leaves, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, sugars, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, malty, damp mouthfeel. Not much to it. Inoffensive, and it works when you’re low on options.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This is a complete disappointment. The beer is a dark brown with a tan head and has a metallic odor to it. The flavor is dull and flat with a metallic flavor mixed with some malt, completely forgettable.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Some modest head and a darker copper body. Soft barley aroma with hints of coffee and barnyard. Flavour is brown sugar with a watery finish. Very blah, very Beck’s.
