A poor Heineken ripoff, especially considering Heineken isnít that great either. This oneís a loser.

Not too bad but Iíll stick with American and English beers that have some taste and body.

Tastes of beer unlike other pub drinks claiming to be beer.

A refreshing beer which I would have given more points to if the pleasant malty flavour and bitter aftertaste wasnít spoilt by a faint but none the less ever present skunky smell.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Bottle (BB 03/08). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean/husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Poor.

Decent German Pilsner. Better in the bottle than on tap. If it comes down to Becks or Heineken, you better bet itís Becks.

German mass produced beer, its ok but with so many better choices out there, why buy it?

Had a bottle of this today. This brew pours with a clear light yellow/golden bottle conditioned appearance. The fine folks at Becks know how to put a head on a beer. The huge white head is as near to creamy as I can imagine a frothy head to be. It is mostly lasting with excellent lacing. The hoppy/yeasty nose is light and clean with hints of perfume, spruce, soap and is also slightly metallic. As one would expect in a pilsener, there is not an abundance of taste. The initial flavor is moderately sweet with a lightly sweet to light bitter finish of short duration. The brew has a light palate with a watery texture and soft carbonation. This would hit the spot BIG TIME on a hot day in the middle of August, but isnít doing much for me as I watch the snow flurries outside. Overall an above average brew, and I would prefer this to any of the domestic American standards that dominate my nearest retailerís shelves.
