The best of Germany meets the best of America in this brew. Crisp, refreshing and light, yet distinctly Beck’s in flavor and quality.

Bottle. Shockingly robust aroma and flavor for a light beer with only 64 calories. Classic German lager, in subdued amplitude: pale yellow color, austere hop flavor, slightly astringent, clean finish. After a hockey game, I reached into the cooler for the typical Lite by Miller/Bud Light, and chanced upon a Beck’s Light. My new post-game beer! Will definitely buy for the team in the future.

Beck’s Premier Light has a thick, white head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and basically no lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweetness, bread, and cracker, with a touch of grass, and the flavor is of those elements, but at an extremely faded level. The mouthfeel is very light and watery, and Beck’s Premier Light finishes crisp, clean, dry, refreshing, easy drinking, and dull. RJT

I had this one several times for the first time. It is an enjoyable lager with mild spice and hop backing. You can taste the alcohol, so surprising that it is less than 4%. I would get again.

Minimal aroma and basic but active golden pour, simple taste and mouthfeel. Yes, I really just rated this... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Becks, but with more water. Not a clean finish. Your standard mainstream pale lager here ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is for the 64 calorie light. Tastes like Becks mixed with 70 percent water. Can't describe it any better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2012 This light beer is just like the rest, very little taste, more like drinking water. Not good at all.

a beer fitting of a green bottle. Some skunkiness would be a blessing. Thin and watery. If given the choice, choose an Amstel instead....

12 ounce bottle from a Wegman’s. Opened 4/14/11. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized fizzy head that fades quickly. Massive skunkiness as soon as the bottle is opened and it doesn’t go away. Some husky grain notes in there as well. The taste is faint grain notes and grassy, skunky hops. Thin and watery. Cant’ get much worse than this.

Bottle. I opened the bottle, and it smelled like Pepe Le Pew in heat. The taste wasn’t much better -- watery, bland, and insipid. This beer is hereby submitted as evidence that light beer is a crime against nature.
