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.

Beer poured with not much head that faded fast. Not much hop aroma and a little less flavor than I would expect from a german pilsner. I would like to see more hop flavor and aroma in this beer. An okay beer that is better than most BMC types of beer. One nice thing was that the case I bought was sealed so that no light could get to the green bottles. At least the beers were not skunky.

This inexpensive and accessible import drinks like a decent beer. I like it better than Heinekin actually. Musty aroma and opaque, headless body. Taste isn't too shabby. Nutty. Smooth. Definite presence of hops. Not much in the way of a palate and a dry, very soapy finish. Nothing special but one you can certainly do worse than this green-bottled import.

Poured a pale golden color with a very small bubbly white head. Skunky lager aroma. Rather bland, slightly skunky, metallic, some hops, and phenols noted as well.

Mild malt and skunk aroma that pours clear with lots of carbonation and medium head. Not a bad beer just average.

Huh. Not great, not bad. Beautifully clear pale gold color. Small white head. Otherwise, pleasantly mediocre pilsner. Slightly skunky in 24oz bottle.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 Not a good lager. Has little flavor and little hops to keep the carbonation from getting overpowering.

Not one of the better German lagers, quite below of what you would expect,just plain.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Pretty nice looking but average light golden coloured beer with a tiny white head ..some lace. Compared to the bottled version the aroma is quite refined and nice..nice floral hops and some malts..delicate. Again in the can the taste is light but trasty,,its a very delicate balance between the hops and the small malt..I think this is lost in the bottle due to the green glass Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable light pils in the can..delightful and worth a try even if you've been burned by the green bottles.

Mild grain nose and some skunkiness. Crystal clear pale straw colour with thin white bubbly head. Very few bubbles in the body of beer. Bland flavour with bitterness in the finish. Very light body. Bottle (green).
