355mL two-year researched proprietary black glass bottle. Pours a brilliantly clear, bright golden pour with decent sparkling carbonation. Weak, fizzing out head. Not even listed as pilsner, fail. Nose is all sugar cube, macro adjunct BS, grenadine, mint. Taste is mint, cardboard, same old same old BS macro junk. Mealy apple, chalky, minty palate. Very disappointing. So two years to make the bottle and probably two days to hone the recipe. Seems about right.

My notes consists only of the word SWAG in capital letters. I suppose I was not drinking it at enough of a high-end occasion.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Clear golden coloured body with a soapy white head, a few bubbles and not much to look at. Aroma of pale malt, a hint of light hops and a bit of unfinished sugars - not much else. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic taste up front with just about nothing behind, except for a tiny bit of sugars, no hops, no malt, no earth. Aftertaste relatively simple with some metallic bitterness, a bit of sugar and cardboardie malt. Overall, a pretty bad beer, but at least it wasn’t terribly offensive - no green bottle means that it’s not skunky - that’s about all that’s going for it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Harris Teeter in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 04-February-2013 sampled later in the day after a hockey game in Washington.

Yellow color, blue bottle, light head, sweet taste, just drink it when it's really cold, tried a sip after I forgot about it and it really declined.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle, smell that corn! Nice little bite, but not too metallic! OK, call me a "beer snob", but what is Beck’s doing brewing a beer like this? What market are they trying to hit? I know , the "urban crowd". They are already over served with crap! Why do the brothers need swill like this? They don’t! Shame on Becks. What a waste. I will not call it a pour. This is a "throwaway". Throw the recipe away dudes. Really? Why?

Bottle. Pours a similar deep amber as Bud Black Crown. Aroma is pale lager, stale hay. Taste, more corn and malt. Piss left in the toilet overnight. Fairly hard to drink.
