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.

[backlog] 27-08-15 / bottle. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.5/5

Bottle. Mild bitterness, finishes with a hint of fruit. Some malt in the background. Just a very basic lager. Nothing wrong with it.

500ml from a keg. Refreshing, clean lager. Slightly herbal bitter. Okay though.

Zielona butelka. Klasyka gatunku. Osobiście spodziewałem się więcej. Eurolager, słodowe, diacetyl, nikczemna piana. Z braku laku.

Rhombic (111) - SPAIN - AUG 24, 2016
I’m surprised that I had not come around to rate this beer so far! Pours pale golden with a foamy white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aromas are sweet, grain and also sweetcorn. Sweetish flavours, in the same character, some hoppy gradient to it, some malt, with an average finish. Watery, thin, but refreshing.

Draught about 100 times at summer music festivals. Funny I never bothered ticking it before :) The first one is kind of painful, the second one almost feels alright, the third one slowly turns into sparkling yellow water. Drink it fast and fresh, and make sure to share the fun with some good mates, prost!

gyllenbock (7697) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle in the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge at LHR. Golden with a white head. Sweetish with bread, some vegetables and cardboard. Thin and boring with a light bitterness.
