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 too bad for an imported macrobrew. Dry and crisp taste with a bit of hop bite on the backend. As with pilsners, its a lighter bodies and flavor beer. Decent alternative when nothing else is available.

Easy drinking, clean pilsener with a good amount of bitterness. Its description of a dry, clean finish is right on.

Fresh hoppy bitter beer, but nice bitterness. Colour is a light yellow. It’s nothing special just a refreshing normal Pilsner. ’Unfortunately filled in green bottles’ (Pivo :-))

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2002
Pale yellow (with a slight tinge of green) clear colour with a shortish lasting large bubbled head. Weird faint aromas including, silica, fish and sappy-hops. Small to medium body, short zingy bitter sweet palate and soft bitter pleasant clean finish. (Rated 24/5/02; Dolomite Alps; Italia)

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2006 Its an OK beer... but with all the selections of brew we have these days, it was pushed to the back a long time ago.

Nice and clean taste. A bit thin, but don’t let it fool you. Very refreshing and smooth. Not hopsy at all.

Becks is a mass-produced German beer, and you won’t find me denying that fact. However, it is excellent in cans. I highly stress that everyone drink this beer from the can and not the bottle, it simply doesn’t do it justice. I get a case of pint cans in central jersey for $21... how can you beat that? That’s about as cheap as Bud for christ’s sake. Detractors can say what they want, but in the end, i’ll be wasted off of this stuff laughing at you. Great taste, not to high in calories, 4.8% abv. What more could you ask for?

I love it. I could drink 100 of these, what a great german lager. Yes As it happens, i drank about 20 or so of them for a banquet and got in pretty rough shape.

Very smooth, very enjoyable! I went in thinking that this was going to be similar to most major American beers, but was pleasantly surprised! It went down easy, and I found it to be highly drinkable. Bottoms up!
