Je m’attendais à une Beck’s vraiment spéciale et je me retrouve avec une lager plutôt pâle et peu mousseuse. Redoutablement blonde! Au nez, un peu de foin mouillé et de miel demeurent. En bouche, je ne goûte pas le houblon, rien qu’un peu de brindilles; un feu de paille dans la bouche avec une finale légèrement sucrée. Heureusement qu’elle est à 6% d’alcool pour m’aider à oublier l’expérience!

Real Light Yellow, Small Head, Little Lacing. A couple of shockers (at Least to me) right off the bat. I guess, something along the lines of Pavlov’s Conditioning laws, black bottle and black can made me think, that just like Guinness it will be a dark beer. This one looks more like a Corona. Another shocker came upon closer label inspection: Made in St. Louis, MO by Budweiser. There goes Imported German Beer part.... Sweet Corn Taste, barely noticeable hop finish, While my knowledge of Bud products is limited, this one looks like a Bud, tastes like a Bud, but is a little less carbonated, therefore smoother and easier to drink. Knowing what it is and where it is coming from, it is an 0K thirst quencher. Nothing premium , northing really bad.

Boring, standard pale lager. Thje aroma is sweet, malty, corn, light fruit. The flavor follows exactly. Sort of a berry flavor, which I guess is the sappphire hop. Fairly subtle though. Medium in body. Same appearance of the pale lager. Pale yellow, white head. Finishes sweet, light hop bittering. Ok. Not outstanding. One and done.

Can. Not much aroma. Drank straight out of the can. Taste is on the malty side with not much hop finish. Just average or less, leaving you wanting more, forgettable.

Clear golden amber with a frothy white head and curtains of lace. Somewhat sweet malt with adjunct (corn?) that stays the same through the palate, finally adding the slightest bittering in the finish. Seems a waste to give 6% abv for such a flavorless beer. Pretty lightweight.

bottle. clear gold with a small white head. sweet malt and candy hop aroma. syrupy palate and highly carbonated. a hint of alcohol astringency at 6%. the hops taste clean and herbal. saphire is a german hop developed recently as an alternative to the german classics but with a hint of berry/citrus supposedly(which i didn’t pick up on). its an ok beer though, but the abv shows up some.

BVery (7238) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Pale gold pour with minimal head. Nose is slightly syrupy, but overall just crappy grainy lager.

Not bad for a German style beer made in Missouri. 6% alcohol is a nice addition.

Overall, pours very light and faintly hoppy. Taste is pretty weak and light. Refreshing but not too amazing really.

Blech. Smell is dry and musty with an apple note. The taste is one noted and slightly sour. There's a nasty aftertaste too. Tough to describe beyond just being bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
