So I was at this surprisingly good liquor store and they had this gal that was giveing away samples of becks this, oktoberfest, regular light and regular. She said that it only has 64 calories. Well, whatever it tastes like it. I think those calories actually come from the packaging rather than the ’beer’ because it does not taste like anything other than water to me.

Bad Color, no head. No aroma. No taste. Maybe some hops and wheat. WAY TOO THIN on the palate.

12 oz bottle - Pours very pale golden with a white head. Aroma is a bit of citrus and not much else. Flavor is about the same. Not very flavorable at all. Palate is quite light almost water.
Bitburger Light was much better as a low carb choice.

I don’t know why I bothered. This was nothing good on any level. "Only 64 calories," and 0 redeeming qualities

Well some lemony tartness, crisp grassy hops and even a note of lager yeast. Okay now the bad stuff, a corn flavor overtone and some band-aid yuck as well. The feel is... well what feel? The Germans must be laughing their asses off forcing this crap on the American market, even for Becks this is a new low. I am not going to waste anymore time with this.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 Look, this beer deserves a high rating for tasting better than 90% of the standard American lagers while weighing in at only 64 calories. Best tasting light beer I’ve ever had. Yes, its pale yellow, yes it’s fizzy and a bit on the sour/acidic side, but my god at least it has FLAVOR! Honestly, at 64 calories it’s completely amazing that this beer has any flavor at all but Beck’s Premier Light pulls it off. Absolutely, hands down the best in its category.

New low carb kid on the block. Pale yellow, fizzy light head that lasts about as long as it takes to throw away the bottle after you’ve poured it. Yes, I actually but this into one of my beer glasses. The nose if lightly husky, some humid hops and light adjunct notes. The flavor is watery, not very pronounced with a bit of metallic dusty malt taste. Finishes watery, acidic.

Hey I found something on Ray’s beer list that I haven’t had - lucky me! Pale pale light yellow, fizzy looking body. Taste is almost nonexistent - a light corn sugar followed by the taste of dirty plastic grocery bag. Not the worst thing I’ve ever had, but it’s down towards the bottom of my list.

One of the best light beers I’ve tasted. Great light version of the original
