Poured copper in color with a big, foamy head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Taste is mostly bread. Mouthfeel is pretty watery. Decent, but nothing to shell out extra cash for.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle poured. Saw this bottle, and just had to have it. Copper pour with a lasting foam head. Pretty skunky aroma, straw from quite a distance. Flavor seems to be similar to the regular Becks product, only sweeter. Some caramel addition. A bit of a spicy malt if you sit here, concentrate, and really think about it. Overall, extremely odd, but not discouraging. Drinkable. My biggest regret: not saving this for a larger tasting. Sorry, Mcberko.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. A Lutton tick if there ever was one! Modest foam, very clear amber Vienna lager. Rotting vegetable aroma. Sweet, disgusting odd malty character. Egg, fermented rotten veg, odd fruitiness. Bright carbonation, at least. Bitter cocoa. Rather disgusting, an insult to the style. Pretty darn similar to the regular becks with a touch of added fruit and disgustingness. Nein, danke.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from a Lider supermaket in Providencia. Santiago, Nov. 2016. Pours a clear bright reddish color with a small fizzy white head that diminishes slowly leaving a thin film. Aroma is malty, with a good solid profile showing notes of biscuit, bread, caramel and some fruity touches. Slight hints of apple and pear. Quite good. Taste is light, not overblowing, but solid. Mostly sweet, biscuity, with good bitter balance from (probably) Saaz hops. Herbal and apple touches near the finish. Light to medium body. Highly drinkable. I drank gallons of these in the last few days when meeting some friends. Great when in the mood for a simple, straight-forward lager with character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
354 ml bottle. Bought in a Lider supermarket in Santiago. Dark amber/pale color, low head. little smell, some yeast, red fruits, honey sweetness to it. Easy to drink, super sweet ending, and pale beggining, nuts it there. Like a belgium beer without the strength. Well made and balanced. Pretty good value for money.

(bottle) Samples at Gee’s Oktoberfest last month. I will be generous and say maybe this is much better fresh from the keg in the Deutscheland. But this is a poor offering for the biggest beer celebration on earth.

Had this from the bottle. Part of a mixed Octoberfest case I bought at total wine. The head initially was nice but very short lived. Clear dark amber color. Some malt on the nose but very weak nose. Bright in the mouth with malt and some hops.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. green bottle. Crystal clear orange/amber with an off-white head. Smells kind of like what I think Beck’s lager smells like with a bit of slightly charred grain and lager yeast. The taste has this too. Light, slightly watery body. A bit of nice German malt comes through but it’s not very dominate. This lingers in the after taste which is nice. Easy to drink and refreshing, but not very interesting. Given the green bottle, I wonder if it’s better fresh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, 5.2% abv. Clear, copper-amber with a thin film of bubbles. Nose of toffee, lightly tart apple, bread and dried grass. Tastes of the same, but muted a bit by some cardboard notes. Near-medium bodied beer walks the delicate balance required of the style and has medium carbonation. Pretty decent industrial brew.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad at all, pours a clear, dark copper but with almost zero head. Great color. Aroma is malty and bready just like I enjoy. Flavor is similarly malty, though a bit thin with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit too carbonated for my liking making this somewhat prickly. Overall much better than expected and would drink again.
