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.

A tall step above heineken. A little bland, but not horrible. If it was on sale, I’d buy some....AND DRINK IT!

Malty, fruity, bit skunky aroma. Bitter, bit herbal, soapy flavor.

This beer is not very interesting to me. It is easy drinkable and good against thirst, but no wonder!

This is a good beer. I admit the odor can be a little overpowering (although I never mistook it for broken wind), but I really enjoyed the taste. To me this beer is the quentessential example of a German Pilsner.

Probably more of a Northern German Lager, it has great aroma and tastes of pale lager malts. Very refreshing. Do not be tempted to drink out of the bottle it is much better apreciated in a tall lager/pils glass.

5/09/02: I really don’t even consider this a ’pilsener.’ It is very typical of the North German lager style that is decidedly lighter-bodied than its Bohemian brethren. Aroma reflects the hoppy bias, but is extremely light, and its midday-sun color confirms its light character. Moderate carbonation accentuates mild hoppy bite...Finish is moderately hoppy-dry. This is a very refreshing drink, but shouldn’t be confused with nor derided for not being better-balanced. It isn’t supposed to be...Re-Rate 8/07/02: Having this at a weiner roast...Pale color is appealing, but head fizzled-out almost immediately...hops provide dry bite but not much flavor except in the finish...body is a tad watery, even for this buoyant style...I’ll drink this occasionally on a warm day as a ’starter’ but it is hard to recommend at import prices...just not enough going on here.

The green bottle led to a skunked beer. It was straw pale and flat and skunked. I will need to rerate this with a fresh bottle.

I used to like this stuff...That’s back when I was young and stupid. Pilsners are the blind beggers of the beer world. The ones that stink.
