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.

Not bad. Had a better flavor and mouth-feel than many of the 6.99 a six pack microbrews I've had. (This was 9.99 for 12 cold bottles) Slightly bitter finish/aftertaste but it had a richer character than a lot of other beers I've had. I'd like to try this on draft sometime

This is a very good euro beer much better then heineken. A little bitter but that gives it character.

The Bud of Germany. Has a skunky smell and slightly bitter taste. Reminds you of the mass marketed Canadian beers.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Pale yellow with a light body and moderate bitterness. High carbonation with floral hop and pale malt flavors. Refreshing, but not impressive. Kinda like the Budweiser of Germany.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JAN 21, 2003
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

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2003
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.
