What is this - Becks without hops? Mildly sweet, cerveza like brew. Could probably use a slice of lime our lemon. Where’s the beach? It’s where they rarely serve good beer for some reason. Dutch beaches are another story. Drinkable but not good - or the other way around. Pass the Colt 45. Was this a collaboration with Corona?

Pours a clear bright golden with a so-so white head. Aroma is corn meal and hop spice. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough and a bit of mild hops. Meh. Too close to an American macro; perhaps a little better.

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an effervescent light gold - small white head that settles into a lasting film. Aroma is mild with some bittering hops, honey-like malt and hint of citrus - not half bad. Flavor is light and generally sweet with some bitter hop notes on the back end - some corn-like flavors and citrusy notes throughout. Palate is a bit more oily than anticipated and good for the style. Definitely not a go-to beer or anything, but would happily enjoy a few of these at a social function if placed next to most other pale lagers.

Not as bad as some of the reviews it is getting. I think is a much better offering than budweiser black crown. Has a decent hoppy finish with a pretty smooth taste. Decent beer

Meh, another attempt by AB to edge into the upper end market. Still reeks of AB. If I were at a function and there was Bud Lite, Bud, Corona along with Sapphire, I’d go for the latter, but that’s about all good I have to say about it.

Bottle from Kroger. Light pour with a nice white head. Aroma is faint and maybe a little sweet. Taste is musty grain and just kinda there. Not a bad finish.

Nose of corn, green apple, a little grass, slightly hoppier than the standard becks I guess. Pours pale golden, thin head. Flavors of green apple, bread, corn, and soft grass. Rather carbonated, more bitterness than standard Becks. Not interesting, but not offensive, however I enjoy pale lager so my rating might not be helpful. My bad, go fuck yourself. Happy Easter!

Boyle. Straw with big foamy head and decent lacing. Smells a little off sour, dank, and popcorny. Light sweet flavor, then something weirdly sweet. Light visited with weird aftertaste.

Not terrible... I've been drinking so much hard liquor I forgot my roots... This beer is smooth... You can barely taste the liquor... Either way it's better than anything that bud has in its label... Besides busch light!
