12oz bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Brewed in St. Louis, MO. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Decent lace. Medium body. Stronger, kind of biting carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Kind of a macro lagery metallic aroma, your typical flavorless poor tasting AB-InBev lager. No idea what the sapphire hop pellets are supposed to be contributing to this. Some bread. Bitter taste, some prominent bite. Hard to drink pale lager. I thought maybe there’d be a chance that this would be a nice single-hop showcase, but no, it’s just a macro lager that’s all marketing, on the same level as Budweiser Black or Unobtanium or whatever

Not impressed. I was fooled by the black bottle thinking this must be a beer of substance. Side poured with a miniscule white head that lasted 3 seconds. Color was dark golden like urine and I imagine similar in taste. A little fruity aroma followed by malty yeast. Taste was very familiar and it took me a few sips to recognize where I had this before.....Bud Platinum. I do like the 6% alcohol volume but the taste is to syrupy sweet for my liking. I get a sugary fruit, maybe pears, dissipating into nothing but sweetness. There is no bitterness or citrus taste that I like in a beer as I prefer IPAs. The worst part is on the back of your tongue right before you swallow-yeasty, very heavy yeast.

Bright gold in color with a lingering head. Very mild aroma of sweet malt. Rich on the tongue with malty sweetness. Soft carbonation for a round mouthfeel. Bittered slightly on the finish.

Maltser85 (144) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a nice gold color with a decent finger and a half slightly off white head with tight white bubbles. The nose is slightly grainy with citrus and grassy notes. There is also a bit of a fruity ester that I’m not able to distinguish. Nice carbonation, taste is much like the nose. Definitely not a typical lager taste. Finishes with a nice hoppy dryness. Nice carbonation. There is a slight sweet maltiness to the beer as well. Pretty good lager. Definitely different than the typical lager. Nice. Something different.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a lot of carbonation and a big, foamy, white head that dissipates quickly. Grainy aroma, but backed with big piney notes and a bit of honey. Sweet all the way down, some bitterness follows. Light body, but a long, sticky honey like finish. I was actually quite surprised by how much I liked this one.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Beck’s by Bud. Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a moderately large white head that slowly fades. Aromas are of soggy, bland malt, and a very light fruity and lightly grassy hop note. Extremely clean fermentation. Flavors are lightly toasty, medium malty. On the sweet side and lacking crispness. Hardly any bitterness. Mild fruity hop character, but not much. Really inoffensive, but not a great lager to drink. By no means a drain pour. Lightly slick on the tongue, medium to light body with a neutral to sweet finish.

Berard (211) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Virtually no smell. How did they do that? Pours med yellow with light white head that dissipates quickly. Typical light lager flavor that is refreshing on a hot day. Nothing special but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought this was pretty tasty actually, for what it is. Not a big body but it goes down smooth, and while it lacks the crisp finish of a oils, the finish is still quite clean.

One of the last beers left at a party. Beggars can’t be choosers. Pours yellow and is almost scentless. Flavor is a very light sweet. Typical uber carbonation to mask lack of flavor. Bottle - Party - Kennesaw, GA

Really light pear and yeasty aroma. Almost clear golden color and short lived white head. wow. this has little to no taste. A hint of malt at first then a little bitter after taste. Not that impressed. Fuck you Becks. Now i gotta finish this.
