I like this much more than regular becks. Its very smooth and a little malty and lacks that potent aftertaste that becks had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle - Clear gold pour, smells of grainy malt. It has a sweet, grainy flavor with maybe, just maybe a touch of caramel. Light bodied. It’s better than a regular Bud but there’s nothing worth paying extra for here.

16oz can into a glass. Pours a corn/hay yellow, piss shades, glazed sunshine. Head is fizzly, light, loose and small, lacing streaks down the glass in small amounts. Aroma is gross, stale corn, tortilla chips, honey, and recycled malts. Taste is sweet malts, grainy and bland hops try to pounce around, seaweed somewhere, corn nuts, dry white wine blandness, and and ok sense of nutrisweet in the end. Not really good at all, the higher gravity and low price is what makes this appear before me. An amped budweiser in disguise really. Not the worst thing out there, the sweet mild kick of the malts is not too disturbing, but nothing to sit down and revel in. A good beer for fast pregaming.

Golden color. Thin white head. Scent is a little banana. Taste is pretty much the same. Not bad for what it is.

Good beer in a bottle. Good taste but there are better beers. Nothing special coming from it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ADesenberg (499) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle: pours a golden straw with a foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, grainy and corny. The flavor is sweet and mildly grainy. Much like any macro lager... There is a time and a place I suppose, but it’s nothing incredible.

Lightrider (268) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is very weak. Pour is a light gold with a thick head. Taste is on the low side, German bud I think. Finish is flat.

Pours a light golden honey color, with a very fizzy thin white head. Aroma is slightly grassy, faint hops, and not much else. On a good note I will say that there is not much off-putting about it, mostly because there is just not much there in the way of smell. Not much flavor on the front end, mostly just a burst of carbonation and seltzer water like flavors. This is followed by some mellow malty flavors which have an interesting after taste to them. Much different than I was expecting. Beer is VERY carbonated and that takes away from it in a sense. Overall this beer could be worse, but it could also be much much better. You can’t expect much going in to it though.

Much better than your regular beck's beer but not by a whole lot, smooth i guess but mostly due a watery taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerInHeaven (114) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2014
clear gold with a medium white head. thin wispy lacing. Smells of hay and a little bread. Not as skunky as regular Becks. tastes clean and a little watery with a quick dry finish. Not bad, not great, not my style.

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2014
Black bottle, Golden in the glass. Nose is a bit like a new cupboard. My wife’s first association was mothballs - and I agree...
The beer starts very watery. And - the aroma is exactly like the nose. A beer with the taste of mothballs - very unique! The more I drink, the more I get reminded of my grandmother’s cupboard, where all the old coats were hanging. Taking one out there was a huge cloud of the typical mothball-aroma in the air - and exactly this is this beer. The aftertaste is even more intense. Not bad, but mothballs…. If you associate something positive with this aroma, it is good - but I think if you’ve ever seen clothes-moths (and therefore used the mothballs) I guess you will vomit immediately ;)
Interesting stuff - beside the aroma very watery, slightly sweet with nearly no bitterness. Easy to drink. What about selling it as liquid mothballs?? --> 5/12/2/3
