1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(bottle) pale gold with very little head. A little hops aroma. Flavor was thin malt, some hops. Not to mention that Beck’s made in St. Louis is just wrong.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Some mildly stinky hops and grass. Clear pale straw, thin creamy head. Light grasss initial / some very minor hop notes in mid / very mild sweetish malty finish. Thin-medium body. Much sweeter than I expected. Not really a gem.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale yellow color with a thin white head. Sweet grain aroma. Kind of a sour grain taste with maybe a little malt at the end. Medium bodied with a decent level of carbonation but kind of a sticky mouthfeel. It’s not bad, the flavor just seems a little off and for the price it shouldn’t be.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Anheuser-Busch, American-made, German macro tick? FUCK YEAH. Pours a clear golden appearance with an off white head. Light veggie, slightly spicy, herbal/grassy hoppy aroma with a touch of fruits. Lemon, a touch tangy, somewhat bready malty, slightly strong flavor. Amped the ABV up a bit too much for my taste but drinkable and somewhat flavorful.

Smooth, sweet taste, but has a marshmallow after taste --very odd. The aftertaste almost coats your tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. tallboy into a pilsner glass.
A - Pours a crystal clear golden amber color. To be honest I wasn’t even sure what style of beer this was going to be but the color is thankfully a few shades darker than the straw yellow I was imagining it would pour. Two fingers of soapy bone white foam. Rising carbonation.
S - Lots of cereal grain sweetness with a touch of grass. Pleasantly neutral.
T - That cereal corn sweetness with a bit of bready malts and some grass and light floral elements. A tame but lasting corn like flavor that I usually associate with adjunct lagers. Very clean and a bit bland but very drinkable and dare I say, tasty?
M - Light, crisp, and refreshing.
O - Far from being a great pilsner, but the reviews do seem a bit biased against Becks. I actually wound up enjoying this beer and would not mind downing a sixer of these on a summer day.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
nothing too impressive regarding aroma, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, in a can overpriced, alcohol content hidden in taste

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Pale yellow brew with small white head. Head is very active and fizzles fast. Aroma of corn. Taste is sweet, corn and malt. Starts sweet and ends sweet. This beverage takes its name from "German Sapphire Hops" but I detect scant hops in the finish (or anywhere else for that matter.)

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Damn. I thought this would at least be a dunkel or something. Nice deceptive bottle InBev. Bummer. Clear, extremely pale golden with a small whitish head. Aroma of grain and a little hint of citrus. It tastes like Frosted Flakes but with water instead of milk. Light bodied, low carbonation. For a mass-market pale lager is decent, but that’s not saying much.
