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.

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.

500 ml can. Clear, pale yellow colour, short-life medium sized off-white porous head, vapor corn aroma, light watery body, high carbonation, slight sweet malty and powerful resinous hoppy bitter taste, simply and resinous hoppy bitter palate. Not well-balanced and too watery.

Bottiglia da 0,66. Semplice birra da pasto. Gusto lineare e poco caratterizzato. Schiuma vaporosa e inconsistente. Poco carbonata e luppolatura impercettibile. Consiglio 1/10

This was alright. Drank on the train like a vagrant. Bottle - Pale golden with a bubbly white head. Some okay lacing. Aroma of malt, cereal, lemon and grass. Not especially nice. Think it’s malted barley that make these lagers smell so terrible. Taste of sweet malt, metal, a little grassy and lemony with light bitterness . Quite sweet. A little fresh mint. Light body prickly carbonation. Dry and a little oily.

VincentKabel (196) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Light golden colour, white head. Medium carbonation. Malty flavour and aroma, slightly hopped and a little fruitiness in the background. Decent beer, not a great one.

Transparent light gold, fizzy white head that stays longer than it should. Weak hoppy notes mixed with "that big lager smell" on the nose. Bit overcarbonated, slightly bitter taste. Some weird notes I cannot quite pin down. Could be worse. No finish.

330 ml can. Crispy and light, metal, light grass and hay. No major off notes. And absolutely perfect after a long day of hot work

Bottle 0.33l from Zrce beach Pag island Croatia.For me one of the worst "German" beers. Metallic taste.

Draft at Lufthansa lounge, Frankfurt airport. Aroma of pepper, taste is bitter throughout, body is light. Boring. At least it was free.
