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.

Way underrated beer in my opinion. I really like the freshness and the flavor. It’s nothing special, just good and decent I think.

Bottle at comfort hotel in Bremerhaven. Clear golden with white head. Smell is grain and a little lager yeast. Taste is crisp grain with light citrus and light bitter finish. Dry with low bitterness and medium carbonation.

I don’t know why people knock Becks so much. This is another one of my "Old School" beers......stuff that I first started drinking. But Beck’s....that is going WAAY back, to like pre-high school...probably the first beer I started drinking now that I am thinking. Maybe I am biased towards it, but I never disliked this beer. Still prefer the dark, but the regular is a pretty good average beer. PLUS, it’s German. It may not be that great for a German beer, but compared to the domestic piss they have here, I’d take a Beck’s any day or night. I don’t find it too skunky neither.

Golden colour with white head. Almost without aroma, you can notice only little presence of hops and thats all. The same empty is taste. Original German version was ok,, that means well balanced carbonation and bitterness, meanwhile croatian version is really hard drinkable - overcarbonated.

This beer drunk in Croatia (international mark) is very bad, the worst for me

AlfredoGarcia (89) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 11, 2015
330 ml can. Grass smell with notes of sweet malt in the end. Clear gold color with white head, wich are correctly formed. Correct taste has well, not any toxic or funky taste/aftertaste, superior to it’s supermarket lager brothers, and palate shows the same. Strong 2.4, but packaging is bad, it seems like a cheap version of Heineken, when is maybe even better.

GuideDogSaint (678) - Xiamen, CHINA - APR 5, 2015
500ml can from Walmart in China, labelled as 4.9%. I think it might be brewed here. Pours yellow with a dissipating white head.Aroma of malt and cardboard. Sweet finish which is reasonably pleasant.

Beck’s USA is nothing at all like the real German Beck’s. It is a weak substitute with some similarities in flavor, more like a Budwiser with flavor. Don’t waste your money on this beer.

Avetixz (23) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - APR 2, 2015
Very grassy and floral aroma, fresh hops. Pours clear golden liquid with a large bubbly white head. Medium bitterness, flavour of grassy hops and hay that vanishes quickly, watery finish. Medium body, slick texture, not too fizzy in the mouth. The palate allows for the beer to be very drinkable. Overall this is an okay Lager, not much flavour, but the flavour that it has is nice and it’s very drinkable and refreshing.
