Bottle, when i was a kid. Refreshing and tasty at the time. Nothing special today. Refreshing but thin & watery. That's about it. Bill Becker (2050) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 29, 2017

This pours a dark brown amber with a 2 finger head of off white foam.
The smell is typical for the style. Some weak notes of malt a touch of bitterness.
The taste follows the nose. Some noticeable hop bitterness up front with a weak, somewhat grainy malt presence. It's a bit too bitter for the amount of malt that hits my palate and overall, this one does not strike my fancy at all. One purchase is enough. jtclockwork (17769) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2016

Originally rated on 9/11/08. "Skunky sweet aroma, deep ruby brown body with a very thin head, no laceing present. Flavor of malt and strong metallic notes, i think i got a bad batch, I probably wont drink the other one i got, i am not sure if i will finish whats in my glass. willisread (3934) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Backlog. Pretty straightforward and mild dunkel. Easy drinking without any fuss and with a clean finish. Don’t mind this and honestly prefer it to the regular Becks.

Not a ton going on here but it’s drinkable at least, and a little better than regular becks. Dark brown pour with ok head. Light tangy finish. Not offensive, just boring. Bottle at press club. Onslow (1552) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Looks nice in the glass - clear ruddy dark color with one finger of dense tan head that settles to a persistent thin head. aroma has hints of roasted malts with a mineral / metallic overtone. Taste is sweet roasted malts up front and through the middle of the swallow but settles into a muddy sweet maltiness with metallic overtones at the end. No so good.

Bottle. Mahogany color with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. Flavor is roasted malt with a sweet but metalic taste on the finish. phaleslu (10957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Green bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of grass, leaves, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, sugars, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, malty, damp mouthfeel. Not much to it. Inoffensive, and it works when you’re low on options. hauxe (1063) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2015
Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre.
