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.

Douberd (2487) - Arnhem, - NOV 18, 2012
Poured from a 330 ml bottle. Colour is light golden-yellow .  Minimal head which disappeared fast. Aroma is of malts and hops.  Taste is bitter.  Thin in body on the palate and quite carbonated. The ABV was stated on the label to be 4.9% and not 5.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass at Cleo’s. Clear appearance with a small white head. Pale malty, light sweet notes of corn and rice. Light body, pretty easy to drink. Pretty bland and not very good overall.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 09.2015, from Alko, 20141120) I had wished I could tick Bremen by drinking some other beer than this one but no. The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, starch and hint of grass. Palate was rather light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, something metallic and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A harsh and thin brew.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a wine glass. Aromas of minerals, some floral, some grass and herb, and a slight skunkiness come through as well as a lemon and orange citrus late. It pours a crystal clear, effervescent pale color with a soft and foamy (whipped) white head that retains thick ring and decent layer and leaves an OK amount of puffy lace behind. The taste is a medium bitter and light sweetness. It’s a thin and light beer with a soft champagne-bubble carbonation. The taste is a dry citrus peel with a mild spicy, clean finish to it. It’s crisp and dry with just a slight, acute bitter fruit hint in the aftertaste which is mostly a mild stone-like touch and light spices.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una buona premium. Seppur molto commerciale, presenta buona presenza dei malti e buoni luppoli. Lunga persistenza in gola, gradevole perchè amara

0.5l can. Clear golden color with small white head. Taste is little sour and bitter. Typical mass product beer, but not bad.

adamnowek (188) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Pretty carbonated. Mildly bitter. Mildly tasteful, but not necessarily a good one. Pretty average.

"mmmmm...skunk. that’s unfortunately the predominant flavor here. i’ve heard that Becks Dark isn’t bad, but i enjoyed this one so little, i have no intentions to spend my hard earned $$ on another of their products. This is the german bud."

Tarosama (49) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from the local supermarket. Pale blond. Good carbonation, crisp, bitter. Nice but it’s too industrial….drink only when there’s no other option.

0,3l on Tap in Kassel. Gelbes Lager mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht leicht malzig, schmeckt auch so; leichte Hopfenbittere.
