Pours one finger of head on a clear light straw body.
The aroma is clean grains and lemon.
The taste is moderate lemon bitterness. Fine enough.
The texture is smooth and crisp.
Pretty enjoyable. AusTexas (4) - - OCT 15, 2014 does not count
The best ... Hands down! Perfect for any Texas heat. I love the color, look, taste & the way it feels washing down my throat.
I like the fact there’s no strong "after bite" like with the original, but Beck’s willaalways be #1, \m/ HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: half finger white head, straw color, clear, no lacing. Aroma: caramel, wheat, light malts, pilsner hops. Palate: light body, average and crisp carbonation, thin to cloying sweet texture. Taste: sweet caramel malt and wheat that lasts. Slightly cloying. Overall, nothing amazing or enjoyable really, but pretty good for an InBev of this style. Actually drinkable. sinfull (1655) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Clear yellow color , medium white head. Aroma of malt and hay. Taste is similar. Minimal hoppy bitterness. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Eh. Pretty bottle...so dark it looks black. So no skunk like regular Becks which is nice. Other than that, it’s so lightly hopped, u can’t tell between sapphire or any other type of hops. Thin, relatively generic and flavorless, and prickly. For the price of regional micro six packs, definitely a one timer."

Can. Rich yellow with spongy white head, little hops aroma, crisp malt taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. Not bad as pale lagers go. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 26, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 2-4-13-
Poured from bottle into a pilsner glass
Appearance – Pours a golden amber color with a big thick and creamy white head. The head fades slowly to leave a decent level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a bready nature mixed with some light hops of a herbal nature. Mixed with these aromas, there is a slightly papery smell with only the lightest hints of any sweetness.
Taste – The taste starts out much sweeter and continued to be much sweeter then the nose let on. It began with flavors of bread and corn malt with a strong sweet flavor of corn syrup and some lighter caramel. These flavors were pretty consistent to the end where some light bitter grassy and herbal hop flavors come to the tongue leaving a mainly sweet but very lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little on the thicker side for a lager style of 6 % abv with a carbonation level that is a little on the lower side. For all the sweet flavors and light hop it may have been better suited with a higher more exciting carbonation and a tad thinner body.
Overall – Tastes very much malt liquor like, but without the kick and at much the higher price (and not available in a 40 or tallboy size as any appropriate malt should be). Stick with the classic malts if you are considering this; this is not really a winner for the price.

This is not good. I didn't take the time to look but I'm sure the coloring is fake. When I have a "European" (in quotes because the devil aka InBev owns it) lager or pilsner I expect good hop bitterness and flavor. This is bland crap. Horrible.

Draft... RBSG 2014... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose features spicy and peppery hops with biscuit and steeping malt. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced with equal measures of peppery bitterness, and sweetbread. Crisp, lightly sweet finish. grundsow (130) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Lots of flavor. The label highlights “German hops”, but I’m tasting roasted malts. Too sweet for my taste, not for me.
