Surprisingly big sample by some Beck’s rep at the grocery store. Pours slightly darker gold than regular Beck’s from what I remember. White head. Nose shows a bit more hops (not much), more sweet grain, and more booze. How can you possibly make a 6% beer that tastes slightly boozy? Oh, that’s right, you got nothing else going on, do you?
Smooth creamy taste ... complex grainy aroma. Truly a great American brewed pale lager. awtolladay (1) - Porterville, California, USA - FEB 5, 2017 does not count
One of the best new beers to hit the market, very smooth and in a world where everyone seems to love IPAs, this is a nice alternative to the run of the mill offerings at the bar. raymow (1732) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2016
bottled - thanks Grant! Blah appearance. Decent, slightly sweet aroma. Smooth and easy drinking - not bad. thedm (6306) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was musty and dirty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The semi-thick flavor contained notes of mild hops and dough. Not one that I would drink again. A forgettable beer that gave me gas! muzzlehatch (4970) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, consumed - or whatever part of it I can bear to consume - from a Zywiec glass ice-cold. Pale yellow-gold, moderate head doesn’t fade away instantly but still leaves little trace after a couple of minutes...honey, corn sugar and a hint of musk in the faint, not unpleasant but not exactly delightful nose...body is very sweet, with some hints of bready malt, mostly a corn syrup texture and flavor, a bit of metal or rust at the finish that’s rather unpleasant...syrupy yet watery body, low carbonation doesn’t help matters. I figured this would be bad, but it was in the .99 bin and I have fond memories of Beck’s - my first girlfriend loved German beer (and it was she who really turned me onto beer actually), and in the mid-late 80s in Chicago, your German beer choices at the liquor store or supermarket were basically Beck’s, St. Pauli Girl, DAB and half a dozen others not appreciably better or worse. So once in a while...but it will be a long while now, I think.

12 oz. bottle. Pours golden yellow and incredibly clear, with a small, white foam head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of caramel, bread, and honey. Taste is slightly sweet with a just a hint of bitterness in the finish. There’s really not much in the way of unique flavors to identify. My best interpretation would be that it tastes like a very weak ginger ale that’s only been lightly sweetened. On the tongue, it feels thin with a light body. Overall, it’s drinkable, and that’s about it, as there’s absolutely nothing to get excited about. There’s a reason why the store had these on a buy-one-get-one-free special, and now I know that reason. ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 15, 2016
In the glass it has golden yellow color with a medium head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is pretty straight forward with bitterness, herbs and grain. Not much here. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is grainy with a touch of hops. Still better than most american pale lagers. WillemsUrenkel (1979) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2016
0,33 l bottle, bought and drunk in Vegas, cause not available on the german market. Is ist so bad? Let´s try it. Clear golden in the glass, small head. Some strange hop elements with flat malt on the nose. Taste is like an average lager with a little bit extra musty malt and some elements of additional hop. Okay, no need to get it in my home area.

12oz bottle - Pours light amber, white head. Honestly, I thought the best thing about this was the weird and unique aroma. Now, I try to evaluate beers honestly, but they end up sounding the same, by style, because basically there are similar characteristics. However, this beer smelled like refrigerated flowers and a whiff of something you might get walking by the perfume/cologne counter at Dillard’s. Flavor was plain ol’ regular pale lager like every other crappy pale lager I’ve ever tasted.
