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.

tricksta_p (2677) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
Can at home. Skunky aroma of sweet grainy malt and cardboard with a hint of fruits. Flavour is unpleasantly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Too sweet and skunky.

A study in crisp, clean, bland drinking lager. I wouldn’t say this is terrible but there are so many better beers (even lagers) out there.

Had one on a hot day in San Antonio River Walk. Not bad, probably over rating given the circumstance.

fid600 (81) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 5, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2015 50 cl can from Konzum, served in a snifter. Golden yellow with medium white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malts, a hoppy grassy element, a bit metallic at times. Medium body, average carbonation. Taste is sweet with slightly bitter finish. No astringency, clean and crisp, but somewhat watery.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a big billowy white head. The head fades fast over time to leave a tiny bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew quite off with a rather skunky smell overall. There is a little bit of caramel and brew, but overall the skunk dominates. Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready taste with a light bit of caramel. As the taste advances some lighter grassy and corny tastes come to the tongue. At the very end a little bit of a hay, skunk, and grain taste meets the tongue, leaving one with a rather crisp and slightly grainy but just slightly odd flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation that is rather high. For the lighter flavors and lager characteristics of the brew the feel is rather appropriate, making it an overall very easy drinking brew. Overall- Ahh. Nothing too exceptional. It would likely be much better if not in a green bottle which taints the whole experience with the nose. It is easy drinking, but otherwise, ahh.

Aroma and taste very similar to Grolsch, this having a bit more body with a stronger aftertaste. Decent lager.

Not bad beer, but nit particulary good,, its drinkable, taste is little bit of bitter and lot of bubbly, which is not very atractive for me
