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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2003 Golden colour, decent head. Light hoppy aroma. the flavour is hoppy and dry. A standard low-price German pilsener.

No better than many cheep American beers and it really isn't much different in style. Sort of a slightly richer Coors

drinkable but nothing special. hoppier than i expected. the commercial description is full of lies. there is no bouquet, there's not a full rich head, and most importantly there is *no* complexity at all to this beer.

This one kind of reminds me of Grolsch, even though it's a pilsner. Something about the skunky taste/smell just makes it rather unenjoyable. I've had it a couple times where it wasn't too bad, but overall, this isn't worth recommending.

An overpowering beer. It is full of german hop flavor. It's an interesting beer, but I found it difficult to drink.

Another hohum pilsener from Germany. They all taste, look, and smell the same.

Slightly better than the girl, imo, but the same unclean edge to it.

Meh, I guess it is OK if you are into golden fizzy pilsners. Costs too much for what you are getting. Seems to be nothing special about this beer, other than it doesn’t taste too skunky. I’m an ale fan and I’m always reminded why when I try stuff like this.
