2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at the Bowling Lanes: Well I drank from the blackened bottle so I no idea on appearance. The thing that struck me was the malty sweetness on the nose and palate that is very unlike normal Becks, also missing is the light struck character often found from Becks. The Sapphire hops are noticed but dumbed down as expected. The bier is simply not all that refreshing with was the redeeming quality of the pils. Meh, I can say I tried it.

Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium balancecd aroma. Light to medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours watery light orange with a thin film. Minimal lace. Aroma is medium sweet with touch of hops. Not distinctively "German" in style. Light sweet, light bitter flavor. Light-plus body, light creamy texture, hearty carbonation, and a short finish. One for the masses. Less skunky (albiet only slightly) than green bottle Beckís.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16 oz can to pint. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes doughy and a little hoppy. Average on the palate. Okay for what it is.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of corn and hops. Poured a full head which dissipated quickly. Very mild carbonation and smooth mouthfeel (they werenít lying about it being smooth.)Clean crisp lager taste with an unpleasant "Pabst blue ribbon" finish. Not much difference from regular Becks here. Comparable to any of the other yellow fizzy beers on the market. Def. not worth the $9.50 for a sixer I dropped.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yard work beer / party beer. Low scores for aroma and tastes since it is miller lite-esque.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma contains some lemons and grassy notes. The flavor is sweet corn and some alcohol. A little bit of a metallic ting in the aftertaste. This is way too sweet and boozy for something thats 6%. Overall not good at all

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottles from co-worker. WTF are Sapphire hops? Can you see thru them on the vine as they sparkle or what? A slightly bluish green tinge on the pour from the bottle to the glass. In glass it gets golden. Cause they donít do a thing for this slightly apple-rific larger bodied lager. Yeah a smooth taste...but not much else. Wibble.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Spaten stange. Pours a clear brilliant gold with a thick white head with good retention; after it falls a bit, a little lace is left on the glass; a blanket of foam remains on top of the liquid all the way down to last swallow. Aroma is corny, citrus powder drink, creamed corn. Taste is sweet with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation soft for the style. Iím actually really surprised by this. I was expecting a piece of shit, mostly because of the AB connection, but this is much better than most of the stuff in ABís portfolio and everything Iíve ever had from the actual Becks brewery. Itís not excellent, and itís not anything I would ever buy again, but this isnít all that bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours pale gold with a lot of carbonation streams and half a finger of white head. Nose is grainy malt, mild hopcitrus. Smells like Genessee. Tastes pale malty, with some decent palate heft, rounded hopcitrus, some malty sweetness and honey undertones, and a smooth, non-offensive finish. Note that non-offensive is NOT the same as good.
