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.

The flavor turned me off right away. Not much of a head and not much for the smell either. I was disappointed.

Very good for a mass produced pils. I personally can't get over the garden pea nose. Often skunked if bought off the shelf. Decent crisp taste but has a dodgey malt balance. Nice head, nice colour. OK for americans but we can do better here.

The more I drink Beck's, the more I don't like it. I guess that isn't good for Beck's, but oh well.

The aroma is a bit skunky, and hoppy. The appearance is a clear light gold, with a thin bubbly white head. The flavor is hoppy, and has a bitter aftertaste. The beer is crisp and easy to drink. Overall not bad.

Has a golden color with a good bit of carbonation and a lightly malted smell. Taste is also lightly malted/skunked and finished a bit skunked. Overall another green bottle euro-skunk beer, I am glad I tried it at a taste testing.

why is this beer so popular? There is nothing special about this beer, let me tell you!

Uh oh, I can feel a flow of vitriol coming on. To all you Europeans, stop whingeing if this doesn't come up to your marque. You are spoilt for taste. To the plethora of American colleagues, geez you guys seem to have so much on offer from the local micros there that you can afford to be picky. Comments like JK's aren't that helpful for an Aussie when I am sure you can only get St Pauli Girl in only one or two places, and that would be in either of the twin cities! For a mass produced pils this is fine. I like the clean taste of the fresh ones we get here and find that the grassy nose is well complemented by the good hint of bitterness and mouthfeel. When Arnie said 'stop whining' he actually meant drink more beer. If I have to drink this I won't wine.

12 oz. bottle. I picked up a single the other day, just to try it side by side with it's light counterpart. I remember this as being much better years ago. Still, it wasn't the worst beer I've ever had, not by a long shot. Poured out a golden, more clear than yellow color. It has some malt aromas, and a faint background of hops, but not much more happening here folks. Tasted alright, but it had a metallic finish to it. Nothing to go out of your way for, however.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 Not what german beer really is. A woody hop taste with hardly any smell. fairly smooth to drink but I would stay away.
