2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Surprisingly big sample by some Beck’s rep at the grocery store. Pours slightly darker gold than regular Beck’s from what I remember. White head. Nose shows a bit more hops (not much), more sweet grain, and more booze. How can you possibly make a 6% beer that tastes slightly boozy? Oh, that’s right, you got nothing else going on, do you?

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lots of flavor. The label highlights “German hops”, but I’m tasting roasted malts. Too sweet for my taste, not for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Appeared as a crystal clear golden liquid with thin foam head. Carbonation bubbles rise fast and violently. Nose is mild with the same smell of the original Becks recipe with corn/rice adjuncts but there is a slight pinch of hops that add a perfume fragrance. The drink is harsh with a noticeable sting of alcohol and a disappointing taste of sweet corn and rice adjuncts that taste worse than the original Beck’s. The bottle presentation had me believe this would be a dark lager but it’s obvious once poured that it is really just another pale lager style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yet another A-B brew in disguise, which I can live with... if it’s any good. It’s got a yellow body with a very short-lived fizzy head. It has an aroma (not strong) of damp fresh cut grass with some dirt. The taste begins with a grainy sweetness rapidly followed by a dull grassy bitterness. While better than many an A-B offering, I won’t be repeating it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a medium golden with a pillowed head. Aromas grainy, lightly grassy, light caramel. Flavors of maize, light caramel, grain and slight grass. Overall the maize ruins it for the other mild flavors. Medium sweetness that emanates from the corn. The sapphire hops come through as grassy.

I thought I was buying German beer. Turns out I was wrong. This swill is made in St. Louis, MO. Shame on Beck’s for the deception. I will never buy Beck’s again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 6%.
Appearance: It has a tall soapy head which settles out quickly leaving not much lacing. The beer itself has a clear golden body with some visible carbonation.
Smell: There is a white bread like maltiness with light candy like notes in the background. It also has a slight hop presence.
Taste / Palate: There is not a lot going on here. It has a light white bready like malt base with a quick hint of sweetness, a slight touch of grainy alcohol and then a clean dry finish with light hop notes.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours out a pale straw topped with a small white head. Nose straw cereal corn and wet grass. Taste is as the nose with the malts leading the way a odd after taste.
