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.

Bleah -- why anyone would drink this is beyond me. Sure it’s marginally better than bud, but if that’s your standard, you won’t appreciate my criticism anyway.

Not that it’s saying much, but this is one of the better Macro pilseners on the market. Better than the standard supermarket fair but not on par with good micro’s. If it’s this or Bud/Miller, etc...I will take Beck’s every time. But then again, who wouldn’t?

Nice beer. Choose Heneiken if you can but pretty much the same stuff. H is a little more bitter but pretty much the same stuff. I like it. Good aroma and clor.

I guess it’s better than Bud... But is it?

A very ordinary beer. Light on hops. A good alternative to some other beers, if you need to bring cans.

Sigmund (4820) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2002
UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 A commercial but refreshing pilsener - nothing wrong, nothing special. Rerate: Had my first can today (bottles and draught previously). Extremely light coloured, possibly watered down version for Norway? (ABV 4,7%) The one I had on tap in Holland a month ago was very light coloured too. Am I right that the colour was slightly darker a few years ago?? Anyway, it's still a drinkable pils, but not an aroma or flavour that will linger in your memory.

Mild hop smell. Golden, with slim head. Quite bitter. Grassy after taste. Ordinary.

Probably my favorite beer to drink after a night of drinking. Nice bite.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Average lager, with rather bitter skunky aftertaste. A little pricey.
