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.

Not necessary "the best of what Germans do best" as their slogan implies. But still, not a bad lager.

I tried the "Bomber" variant of this beer. I got bombed. This beer has a light flavor that made it go down fast, hence the drunken stupor. There was a slight fruitiness to it. Worth trying again but nothing remarkable.

Sharp bitter hop aroma that transfers to the palate. Not bad to look at in the glass, but the brand has been done to death.

Oh my gosh I can't believe I drank this beer. Did I say "beer"? This was rot gut! It poured a medium head and had very little lacing to it. It had a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. It had a bitter taste and the aftertaste lingered and lingered. It was pale gold in color. There was no carbonation. It had a light body to it. Obviously, I was anything but impressed by this beer. I am glad I have this rating out of the way!

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2003
1/4 draught: Very small head, clear urine colour. Little to no aroma apart from a hint of woody hops. Tastes rather bland + thin. Slight sweetness, slight bitterness. Too watery for me.

I didn't really like this one. It came off as skunky and very bitter, and almost no finish except for more bitterness.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 4, 2003
Pale gold colour with lots of fluffy white head. Very carbonated, almost looks like champagne. Very perfumy aroma, a bit skunky, too. The first few sips coated my mouth with a lingering very bitter and perfumy taste. Sweetened as it warmed to a very mild malty taste with a slight bitter finish.

Middle of the road pilsner. Good on hot summer days. I have other beers as my favorite though.

This is what I drink with my dad. I don't know why he likes it so much. It has a pungent odor to it and a bland watery body with a bit of a bitter finish. Bad but not horrible.

This is a pretty decent beer. It's harsh when you first taste it, but it has a nice aftertaste. Takes some getting used to.
