Pretty much a disgrace to German Brewing. When I had it, it was a tad skunky and flat. Drink St. Pauli Girl, it’s a little better.

This sucks just as bad as Heineken but more bitter. Help!

I don’t understand why this even cracks the 2.0 barrier. It has to be one of the worst german pilseners. Ice cold it’s drinkable, but towards the end of a glass it becomes downright foul, almost resembles Bud Light.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Not a favourite beer of mine. Not a bad drink, but inferior to most German lagers and with a number of faults - overly gassy, too often skunky and slightly too bitter. Little character either. Awful if not served cold.

Crisp and smooth with a toasty flavor. Not the greatest beer, but not bad either.

it tasted like a german pilsner aftertaste blended with a Budweiserish palate taste. I enjoyed it best with a nice cigar. Not the best tasting beer out there, but it was smooth, nice, plain-pilsnerish aroma. definitly a beer better from the bottle.

this is just a very average german beer. it is a lot like hansa pils, only more expensive. okay aroma and bitterness.

Light straw colour with strong nose of a clean garage, kind of metallic and oily. Like someone’s wearing a cheap cologne lingering in the background and slightly in the taste and palate as well. Too bitter for me, lacking complexity and balance.

This beer has a balanced flavor and quality taste with a slightly dry and crisp finish. It is not bitter, like you’d expect some German Pilsener beers to be, and it is not over-poweringly strong (4.8% alcohol by volume).

No argument from me that Becks isn’t the best German brew, but I enjoy it a great deal. It goes down very easy.
