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. Iím 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 ABís portfolio and everything Iíve ever had from the actual Becks brewery. Itís not excellent, and itís not anything I would ever buy again, but this isnít all that bad.

"Eh. Pretty bottle...so dark it looks black. So no skunk like regular Becks which is nice. Other than that, itís so lightly hopped, u canít tell between sapphire or any other type of hops. Thin, relatively generic and flavorless, and prickly. For the price of regional micro six packs, definitely a one timer."

Can. Rich yellow with spongy white head, little hops aroma, crisp malt taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. Not bad as pale lagers go.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-4-13-
Poured from bottle into a pilsner glass
Appearance Ė Pours a golden amber color with a big thick and creamy white head. The head fades slowly to leave a decent level of lacing.
Smell Ė The aroma is mainly of a bready nature mixed with some light hops of a herbal nature. Mixed with these aromas, there is a slightly papery smell with only the lightest hints of any sweetness.
Taste Ė The taste starts out much sweeter and continued to be much sweeter then the nose let on. It began with flavors of bread and corn malt with a strong sweet flavor of corn syrup and some lighter caramel. These flavors were pretty consistent to the end where some light bitter grassy and herbal hop flavors come to the tongue leaving a mainly sweet but very lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is a little on the thicker side for a lager style of 6 % abv with a carbonation level that is a little on the lower side. For all the sweet flavors and light hop it may have been better suited with a higher more exciting carbonation and a tad thinner body.
Overall Ė Tastes very much malt liquor like, but without the kick and at much the higher price (and not available in a 40 or tallboy size as any appropriate malt should be). Stick with the classic malts if you are considering this; this is not really a winner for the price.

This is not good. I didn't take the time to look but I'm sure the coloring is fake. When I have a "European" (in quotes because the devil aka InBev owns it) lager or pilsner I expect good hop bitterness and flavor. This is bland crap. Horrible.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... RBSG 2014... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose features spicy and peppery hops with biscuit and steeping malt. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced with equal measures of peppery bitterness, and sweetbread. Crisp, lightly sweet finish.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Lots of flavor. The label highlights ďGerman hopsĒ, but Iím 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 Beckís. The bottle presentation had me believe this would be a dark lager but itís obvious once poured that it is really just another pale lager style.
