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 good beer but since i've had a chance to sample so many other specially crafted beer, this one does not stack up. i used to think that the skunky taste was part of a stronger beer....well, not anymore. this beer is a bit skunky.

Very small head. Drinkable beer, not something I would have all to often, good amount of carbination.

Bottle, from the Hogshead, Birmingham. I only really rated this one to get it out of the way, but I must say, it's not as bad as I remembered, certainly considering how popular it is with the masses! Fairly pale, small fluffy head. Classic German bitterness, with light saaz throughout. Balanced, refreshing, crisp. Slightly bland, but qualitat. Would be, and indeed is a very popular session lager.

Bottled, pasteurised. Pale yellow, fizzy. Has the benefit of a tangy crispness, but a forced hop flavour to overcome the incredible carbonation. Opening one of these must damage more of the ozone layer, do the world a favour and yourself, leave it in the bottle.

Nothing special; kinda bland, but no adjucts is nice. Pale, short lasting white head, but smooth crisp taste. finish was a little odd; starts of skunkiness probably.

Golden amber color. Light taste. Much less favorable than the dark version. Stonger hops flavor.

Becks made me puke. It wasn't the AMOUNT of beer that I had, but rather the lack of quality thereof. (It may have been the quantity).

Trogdor (197) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2003
subdued, musty aroma. very light straw colour, almost clear with a tinge of gold really. unimpressive flavour with no highlights, some malt and hop character. thin on the palate. i'll only get this again if there's nothing better going.

I have to admit I'm quite the fan of Becks. Oh, there are other lagers out there that are better, I'm sure, but in my personal opinion, Becks is liquid gold! It's a little heavier than some lagers, but doesn't fill you up if you're drinking a lot of it!

More hops and, therefore, more character than most euro-lagers. Slightly flowery aroma and relatively clean and dry on the finish. Not much in between though. Bland, but a reasonable standby if stranded in a bar that has nothing more interesting, which this was (as we waited foro the Eurostar train to take us to Brussels). Bottle, Bonaparte's, Waterloo Station, London, September 2003.
