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.

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 (5116) - 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.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Average lager, with rather bitter skunky aftertaste. A little pricey.

vacek (67) - College Station, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2002
Skunky and flat. Not enjoyable at all.

GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2002
Hoppy, bubbly, slightly skunky, a little bitter but not the good kind of bitter. Not worth paying import prices.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2002
Ok for a macro, bad for a German Pilsner.

Not bad, not great. Heneiken is better, but this is better than the Americans. Still not very good for a German. Go find yourself a Paulaner. You’ll be glad you did!!!!
