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.

Well balanced with a pleasant bready maltiness. Rather long, dry, bitter finish. A good mainstream lager.

Smells like the skunk is still alive at least nuts (what I should be for drinking this nasty bitter wash) resin - as in pine tar basement aromas - old shoe full of pond water, earthy, cooked vegetables,like rutabega or beets yik skunky, smoke, as if you smoked a real skunk

Fruity aroma but very sweet. Clear golden colour with reasonable head. Not a very nice flavor, high carbonation with light to medium body.

A little watery but at the same time fresh and pretty tasty. Good thirst quencher.

agent_persik (365) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 8, 2014
Clean pale golden color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, hops and grass. Taste is sweet with light dryness and lightly bitter hoppy finish and rassy aftertaste. Thin body and lively carbonation. Ok pilsner.

Clear yellow body, white head. Not muxh to say. Nicerly hopped than many other bulk lagers. No flaws.

Drought. Pale yellow with small white foamy head, very little doughy aroma, high carbonation, flattish taste, abrupt finish. Generic lager.

What happened to my favorite beer ever???? Oh yeah, it is now brewed in America. I questioned the taste for the past few months but thought it was MY taste buds. Thought maybe the beer had expired but today I finally learned the truth!!! If a German pilsner is brewed in the U.S.A. , the original taste is lost. Sorry Beck’s, I’m only going to buy Pilsner Urquel.

Bottle. Clear light golden. Light sweet malts with hint of citrus, grass, and bitter hoppy finish that is not very good and slightly chemical. Very meh.
