UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Lots of flavor. The label highlights “German hops”, but I’m tasting roasted malts. Too sweet for my taste, not for me.

well... Pours a clear golden Aroma is metallic and nothing else. Taste is reminiscent of a 40oz of steel reserve. probably better to get that instead

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Appeared as a crystal clear golden liquid with thin foam head. Carbonation bubbles rise fast and violently. Nose is mild with the same smell of the original Becks recipe with corn/rice adjuncts but there is a slight pinch of hops that add a perfume fragrance. The drink is harsh with a noticeable sting of alcohol and a disappointing taste of sweet corn and rice adjuncts that taste worse than the original Beck’s. The bottle presentation had me believe this would be a dark lager but it’s obvious once poured that it is really just another pale lager style.

Tastes like someone combined Miller High Life with Colt 45. Absolutely aweful. Horrible piss that i wouldn’t serve to my worst enemies!

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Yet another A-B brew in disguise, which I can live with... if it’s any good. It’s got a yellow body with a very short-lived fizzy head. It has an aroma (not strong) of damp fresh cut grass with some dirt. The taste begins with a grainy sweetness rapidly followed by a dull grassy bitterness. While better than many an A-B offering, I won’t be repeating it.

Pours a medium golden with a pillowed head. Aromas grainy, lightly grassy, light caramel. Flavors of maize, light caramel, grain and slight grass. Overall the maize ruins it for the other mild flavors. Medium sweetness that emanates from the corn. The sapphire hops come through as grassy.

I thought I was buying German beer. Turns out I was wrong. This swill is made in St. Louis, MO. Shame on Beck’s for the deception. I will never buy Beck’s again.

generallee08 (714) - New York, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 6%. Appearance: It has a tall soapy head which settles out quickly leaving not much lacing. The beer itself has a clear golden body with some visible carbonation. Smell: There is a white bread like maltiness with light candy like notes in the background. It also has a slight hop presence. Taste / Palate: There is not a lot going on here. It has a light white bready like malt base with a quick hint of sweetness, a slight touch of grainy alcohol and then a clean dry finish with light hop notes.

Bland. Gold pour. Cereal and malt aroma and taste. Some bittering hops. Not much else to say.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12oz bottle pours out a pale straw topped with a small white head. Nose straw cereal corn and wet grass. Taste is as the nose with the malts leading the way a odd after taste.
