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 Beck’s.

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 weren’t 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.

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

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 don’t 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. I’m 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 AB’s portfolio and everything I’ve ever had from the actual Becks brewery. It’s not excellent, and it’s not anything I would ever buy again, but this isn’t all that bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Capone’s. 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.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Wolf in sheep’s clothing. Crappy American beer disguised as a German classic. Miller Lite tastes better than this junk. Absolutely terrible. Save your money.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Looks like a typical lager, smells like a typical lager, and yes it tastes like a typical lager. Nothing much different about it than drinking michelob, stella artois, or any of the other flavorless lagers inbev has to offer. For the price to get a buzz going just give me a bud ice. Same plain lager taste with less cost.
