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.

The added hops to this export style pilsner make it quite pleasant. It is not as appalingly bland as most people seem to claim, though it is by no means a beer of distinction.

Becks tag line should be "The worst of what Germans do best". An insipid brew from the land of fine beer. The malt has no distinct character, and neither do the hops, apart from a slightly metallic aftertaste (am I still smelling the cap?). In the states a Michelob is just as good at a much lower cost if you want a boring beer.
