COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our original Beck’s is a classic German lager beer with a distinctive full-bodied taste, fresh "hoppy" bouquet, golden color and full rich head. Adding to its complexity is a slightly fruity but firm crispness and a dry, clean finish.

its a lager, a german style, but I’m not impressed, maybe its me American bias but I do love a lot of German beers but Beck doesn’t kow how to pull off a lager. Pours piss yellow, smells like heiniken, taste a little better. no a favorite by any means, but still better than some.

Not great, but not all that bad. Yep, that’s it. The commercial description says "...fresh hoppy bouquet...", well I beg to differ. On tap at least there’s a hint of something like hops. Out of the bottle is a whole different story. Not skunky, but not too tasty. It’s definitely not fruity, and is in NO WAY complex. Complex?....it’s almost laughable. If all you’re after is a decent lager then look no further.

A Standard-bearer in my experience. I have had "off" bottles of Becks that beat any US Macro Brew hands down, hard to skunk it with the green glass, I suppose. A crisp flavor and a small bite, I imagine that this is a Typical US import German beer, better in country.

DRINKING BECKS. MAKE’S THE GIRLS WET. ALL I THINK ABOUT IS SEX!.. hAHA Well pretty good imported beer. Nice shiny light gold, beautiful white head. Pretty clean and crisp flavour to it. It possess a nice herbal, malty with a nice cool mellow hop finish to it, like all German beers. Little tartness and little hints of citrus to it. This beer is araight in my books. 1 1/2 Old Monk thumbs up.

It’s Imported! Says so right there on the label. Gold, nice white head. Slightly salty, bready aroma - surprisingly not skunked. Frainy, malty with a mellow hop finish.

Pours a clear yellow-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly skunky, hops and a trace of malt. Flavor is sweet and malty, but nothing special. Substitute "average" for "classic" in the commercial description, and you’re a lot closer to the true nature of this beer.

Had this on tap at an event I attended at the Labatt/Interbrew headquarters in Toronto. Very pale yellow colour. Aroma is herbal and hoppy, much better than the skunkfest you usually get from the bottled version. Body is crisp and refreshing. Flavour is quite sweet with a dry hoppy finish. Not a world-beater, but a decent patio quaff.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Not the best German offering, but not the worst. Good beer for sittin’ around with friends.
