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!

Poured from bottle, clear pale gold with medium head. Classic lager notes, but very faint, taste is watery with some bitterness.

Lots of carbonation, bitterness and sour. Getting some zest here. Not all that bad. Refreshing in fact.

Lager never was my type of beer, and Beck’s never was my type of lager. But, today we have here 35 C, and the can was cold. Pale yellow, big white top fast vanish.

Awful piss water that is so bad it has to be served nearly frozen to be able to drink it.

Dourado pálido.Sabor a resina, a mel e a metal.Durante alguns meses a minha cerveja de eleição em Portugal - porque sempre era melhor que as zurrapas Sagres e Superbock e porque não era assim tão cara.Estando a estudar na Alemanha e tendo acesso a maior variedade diria que esta é das cervejas mais fracas que já bebi estando em terras teutónicas.

Pours golden with quickly deminishing head. Nose is unpleasent with some metal. Taste is astringent grassy and soapy. Standard stuff...

Botella. Dorado muy claro. Poca espuma blanca. Aroma casi neutro. En boca resulta carbonatada y refrescante. Amargor bajo pero más notable que en otras de su clase.

The beer is golden colored with a stable white head, and average carbonation. The aroma is malty, also grassy and with tones of hops and a hint of citrus. The taste is a little sweet and light malty. Finish is fruity and light bitter and has some tones of apples. Standard lager, but well drinkable.
