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.

16 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear straw color. There’s one fingers worth of white colored head. While retention isn’t great, it’s better than other macro lagers. S: There’s some malt sweetness, some corn sweetness, but no skunk, though! Shame there aren’t any hops to cut through the malt, though. Better than Bud, at least. T: Really, there isn’t much. It’s got malty sweetness, touches of creamed corn, and - most distressingly - a green apple/formaldehyde finish. Finishing bitterness is nonexistent. The flavors aren’t any good, and the off notes are the final nail in the coffin. M: Nice and light on the palate, but too sweet. Carbonation is healthy, as expected. O: Well, it lived up to my expectations. No more, no less. Next!

Malty notes in aroma and taste. Pale gold, minimal head. Light sweet, together with some bitterness. A hint of malt sweet and hop bitter aftertaste, not too thin.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, small white head, no lacing. Sweet boild vegetable aroma, grass and malt. Light soft mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Sweet taste, mild grassy finish.

hrabren (791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 10, 2016
0.5 l can bought at a local Lidl store. Shared with Martina. I never liked this one. Clear pale golden, diminishing white head. Cheap malts, virtually no hops. Very light, medium carbonation, finish is close to none. Taste is metallic with some sweetness. This is so fake it hurts. Never again.

Bottle. Ah, that’s why I shouldn’t drink this from a glass. Metallic, artificial, industrial. Cheap hops, some bitterness, malts are something you have to imagine. Ugh.

Ardel1991 (125) - - JUN 28, 2016
Słomkowe, blade, z drobną białą pianą. W aromacie estry. W smaku niby lekko słodowe, lekko kwaśne, ale bardzo nijakie.

Scrumpy369 (407) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2016
Can at home, poured into a mug. Very light yellow colour, small white head. Nose is funky, unpleasant fermentor smell. Taste is very light bitterness, light sweetness, but almost no taste at all. Watery and bad overall.

Sven1973 (209) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
Gezapft, Goldgelb mit festem Schaum. Kein besonderes Aroma, leicht zitrus. Geschmack belanglos, etwas bitter, leichtes Malz. Aber irgendwie erfrischend

Vestlake (270) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 17, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pretty nice beer for a mass produced. If you’re in the mood for a decent European Lager, this will do.
