Our original Beckís 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.

This one is the typical premium lager that you find all around the world. Malty-grassy aroma and flavor. No head retention at all and medium to low carbonation. Perfect for a sunny day if it is not something better available.

22 oz bottle purchased for $2. Iím not really sure what is more interesting; this beer, or the articles online that surround it. Iíve read about the possibility of AB halting the brand, all the way to them paying people back their money (and then some) for drinking it. All because people canít fathom the idea of an imported beer being brewed in their backyard. Or in this way, the great gateway to the west. Iím not one to care. When it comes to this kind of beer, I tend to remain on the less picky side. Although a US brewed Becks VS a German brewed Becks would be a fun blind taste test. All of this added up to the thought crossing my mind that I better rate this before I lose my opportunity. That, coupled with the fact that growing up, this was my Dadís favorite beer, and drank it about as much as I drink every other beer combined. I suppose I also hadnít submitted a long, random, rambling review in a while, so I guess Iím killing a half dozen birds with one beer. I felt very silly pouring this into a glass, but I did for color and appearance reviews alone. Donít worry, Iíll drink the rest properly out of the bottle. When it comes to green bottle, premium import/export (see above) lagers, this one is decently refreshing and most importantly, finishable. Nearly transparent pale yellow color with an aroma that filled the room upon cracking it open. Extremely light flavor. About as watery as they come. There isnít a single flavor strong enough to identify or point out. I certainly wouldnít use the word "complex" in itís description, but no heavy complaints here. Just an average, water forward light lager. For two bucks, Iím sure Iíll find myself in a "why not?" mood again someday.

Yellow beer with no head. aroma is malty sweet, nothing off putting in sight. Flavor is a bit sweet with some light but malt and some light bitterness. Refreshing palate. There is much worse to choose from but obviously much better. A bit light but much better than some other pale lagers.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Lager never was my type of beer, and Beckís 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 pŠlido.Sabor a resina, a mel e a metal.Durante alguns meses a minha cerveja de eleiÁ„o em Portugal - porque sempre era melhor que as zurrapas Sagres e Superbock e porque n„o era assim t„o cara.Estando a estudar na Alemanha e tendo acesso a maior variedade diria que esta ť das cervejas mais fracas que jŠ bebi estando em terras teutůnicas.

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