COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our original Beck’s is a classic German lager beer with a distinctive full-bodied taste, fresh "hoppy" bouquet, golden color and full rich head. Adding to its complexity is a slightly fruity but firm crispness and a dry, clean finish.

more of a europeanized "american standard" than a "pilsener".- perhaps a "european standard" category is called for. a slight malt taste and some hops in the finish.

Certainly more "American Standard" than "Pilsener". Skunked out, too. Harsh is a word that fits this selection also. I didn't wanted to finish the bottle. File under: Heineken, Bitburger, Warsteiner.

Golden. White head. Can have a skunky smell if lightstruck. Flavor of hops and some sour taste. Serve cold. St. Pauli Girl is a better alternative

Pale golden body, carbonation looks fake to me. Hints of subdued earthy hops and floral tones. Sweet and malty in character. tastes well, not good. Dry corn and a wierd emptiness left in mouth.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2003 It's OK, decent flavor, but nothing special. Slightly acidic palate. Drink Beck's Dark instead.

Sharp taste, best served very cold. Thin head and can seem watered down at times.

As Incarpathia says, I prefer Beck's over Heineken as well. Had on tap, nice bitter flavor. Fairly smooth drinking.

I much prefer Beck's over the more popular Heine here in the US. It is a bit above average as a pils but there are better beers out there. Another "go to" beer when the selection is minimal on the list or at the store.

A very odd tasting beer with its distinct "skunky" aroma and flavor. I don't mind the taste although i prefer to drink it after a meal. Not much head to speak of.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Ok, but nothing special. If every aspect of this beer were increased by 50% (meaning half against as much aroma, color, and taste especially) then it could be very nice. The flavors are good...but weak.
