3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer used to be one of my favorites 15 years ago and I can tell you I like it more from this attractive 12 oz. can. This is the first time I have had a can of Becks. Pours with a graciuos head and nice pale ale like carbination. The smell is slight grain and and light floral citrus hop. No detection of unpleasant odors. The flavor is light malt and grains with a light hop flavor and bitterness. The best mouthfeel Ive found in a lager yet. Nice carbonation tingle. I suppose with my new found taste for IPA's, Imperial Stouts, and Barley Wines, I would have to call this a fine lighter beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Old rating. Drank from the bottle. Slight hop aromas with a hint of pear present. No taste to speak of. Fizzy, carbonated slightly sweet on the palate. Dry finish. I guess it would be refreshing on a hot day, just devoid of any flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Shakespeare Hotel, Bedford. Bright yellow, heavily carbonated. Heavy lemon scent. Pleasant. Bittersweet citrus taste. The carbonation is too heavy, still quite acceptable though.

Bomber pours a pale golde/straw with a large white head. Grassy slightly skunked hop aroma. Mellow light caramel malt with light grassy hops. When my grandpa wouldn’t spring for Pilsner Urquell he’d get this, no comparison but drinkable.

A couple of pre-review notes. I’ve noticed mostly European reviews on this, not a lot of American reviews, which prompted me to double check. Yep, it’s the right beer.
I noticed a lot of reviews mentioned freshness in their reviews. I’m guessing this is Julian dated, and if so, this bottle is about 5 months old.. Not too fresh, but not too bad considering....
It pours with a thin head. It seemed to pour heavier than a lot of beers. Not a lot of lacing, but even after several minutes, lots of bubbles rising from the bottom. It does have a pretty spicy aroma, hoppy, fresh. It screams, ’Drink me!!" It is very clear and clean, it looks like a light beer.
The beer is 5 months old. No, I don’t taste skunky. It is bittersweet, hoppy, spicy. It finished slightly bitter though. The bitterness lingers. It’s pleasant.
It’s tricky on the palate. The mouthfeel is slightly heavy but the spicy aroma makes it more bold than it really is. It’s different, but it’s the two are conflicting.
Overall, it’s better than most. I like it, but no so much that I’ll make it a habit. It reminds me somewhat of Corona.
