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.

Too watery and skunky. Not good.

Yellow with a noticable skunk flavor. It’s like a thousand needles picking my mouth. Light and watery. A little bitter, but nothing to get excited about.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Light yellow color, looks almost like sparkling apple juice. The aroma has a slight hoppiness to it, however the taste does not back it up. Not bad for a pilsner, however, I don’t like pilsners.

Discofish (152) - USA - NOV 3, 2002
A rather boring beer, and not very hoppy as the description claims. Everyone one of these I’ve ever had has been skunky.

Straw gold. Flowing head. Smells hoppy. Not my favorite. THe same to the dry bitter end.

This is not German beer. It is to American to be a good German brew!

faulstich (25) - Davis, California, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Consistently good, but for the price there are a lot of better brands. Not the best German pilsner either. Very drinkable - because there isn’t much flavor. A beer - flavored calistoga? At least you know what you’re getting.

Very crisp and clean taste. No distinct flavors, but that’s not all bad.

Not a bad beer, but there are better imports out there. It’s a shame that this is the beer American’s think of when they talk about a German Pilsner.
