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.

This beer used to be one of my favorites 15 years ago and I can tell you I like it more from this attractive 12 oz. can. This is the first time I have had a can of Becks. Pours with a graciuos head and nice pale ale like carbination. The smell is slight grain and and light floral citrus hop. No detection of unpleasant odors. The flavor is light malt and grains with a light hop flavor and bitterness. The best mouthfeel Ive found in a lager yet. Nice carbonation tingle. I suppose with my new found taste for IPA's, Imperial Stouts, and Barley Wines, I would have to call this a fine lighter beer.

Once again I payed a euro for a bottle of dishing water. It didn't tasted bad, no, it justed didn't tasted at all. Quite stupid, not?

A yellow beer with no head. The aroma is malty sweet - a nice aroma. The flavor is sweet, nicely malted, thin in the middle, and dying out in the end. The bitterness is slight but good. An OK beer - but somewhat boring.

Not necessary "the best of what Germans do best" as their slogan implies. But still, not a bad lager.

I tried the "Bomber" variant of this beer. I got bombed. This beer has a light flavor that made it go down fast, hence the drunken stupor. There was a slight fruitiness to it. Worth trying again but nothing remarkable.

Sharp bitter hop aroma that transfers to the palate. Not bad to look at in the glass, but the brand has been done to death.

Oh my gosh I can't believe I drank this beer. Did I say "beer"? This was rot gut! It poured a medium head and had very little lacing to it. It had a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. It had a bitter taste and the aftertaste lingered and lingered. It was pale gold in color. There was no carbonation. It had a light body to it. Obviously, I was anything but impressed by this beer. I am glad I have this rating out of the way!

1/4 draught: Very small head, clear urine colour. Little to no aroma apart from a hint of woody hops. Tastes rather bland + thin. Slight sweetness, slight bitterness. Too watery for me.
