2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 You can turn up your nose at this stuff if you want, but if it is a foregone conclusion that you’re going to drink an extremely light beer, this is probably your best choice. Yes, it’s watery, but at least it has some beer flavor and some hoppy overtones. And unlike other less-than-100-calorie choices, it contains about as much alcohol as a standard beer. Comparing it to 150-calorie beer is like comparing a Weight Watchers meal to a four-course steak dinner. Of course it’s not as good, but everybody knows that. That’s not the point. If you want to get rid of the beer belly without giving up beer, this is an acceptable tradeoff.
**************** Comment added after original rating: OK. Mea culpa. I’ve had a couple more bottles, and you’re right. It’s awful. I’d rather keep the beer belly.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Notes from BJCP tasting session, 2-4oz sample from 12oz bottle
Aroma: spicy (maybe saaz) hops, grainy and sweet malt, clean fermentation
Appearance: pale straw, brilliant clarity, white head
Taste: grainy sweet, low to medium bitterness with spicy and/or noble hops, very clean ,well lagered, with a dry finish
Palate: very light body, medium carbonation, smooth
Overall: A very well made light beer, just not my thing. The bitterness was very subtle and I’d prefer a tad more noticeable bitterness. Great clarify and color.

Ok beer. Just a little too light for my taste. Needs a little more body. Mouthfeel seemed light as well.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Not much foam when it poured into a glass, white head, clear beer color with not much too it (nothing interesting). Not offensive. Would’ve been much better had it a fuller flavor, but its overall not bad for a beer this light.

My favorite light lager. Clean and crisp with more flavor than others in this genre. Perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light straw color, barely visible rim head, no lace, only a couple of rising bubbles to give it any life. Taste is very light malt that has an adjunct contributing a little on the swallow. Not much there, but it matches the regular Beck’s in flavor, and it is better than Michelob Ultra and its brethern,

"Tailgaiter. Surprisingly non-offensive (though not good either) given how skunky Becks can be. Maybe I got a good one, or maybe less is more with crappy euro lager."

Reasonable enough and cheap. Light version of one of the more tolerable "main" european lagers. Fairly dry which is the main thing I like about becks.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a smallwhite head. The aroma and flavor have corn, grainy malt, hay, a sslight herbal character. Only marginally better than US macro stuff.
