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.

Bottled - Golden amber in color with a decent whitish head. Not much for aroma, perhaps some skunk (green bottle??). In spite of its popularity it is not a very distinctive beer. Drinkable, buit not something to seek out.

This is a good beer. Pours gold with a stonrg hoppy flavor. Again, is a good beer but becks dark is the way to go.

In the bottle. Gold fizzy big bubble pour. Dissipating white head. Strong hop flavor that dominates this pilsener. Hallertauer, perhaps? Surprisingly, this is not usually skunky for a beer bottled in green glass. My favorite thing is the fancy foil around the neck and cap. I prefer Becks dark.

Okay, I decided to finally review Beck’s when I finally happened upon a bottle here in Toronto that wasn’t skunked. In fact, the whole case wasn’t skunked. That’s a first for me. Usually, it’s all skunk. So, pours nice golden yellow with insignificant head. Just what I’d expect from a pils. Mouthfeel is crisp, with nice carbonation. Taste is especially characterized by a honey-sweet that I had never detected in Beck’s because it was also skunked when I had it. The honey comes on quite strong at first, then subsides for the hops and bitter finish. Overall, non-skunked Beck’s is what I would expect from a big brewery, but is still above the usual fare.

One of the ugliest beers i have ever seen, pale yellow. Stewed fruit, slightly floral hop aroma. flavour consists of a little malt, perfumy hops next to no bitterness, with zero aftertaste. horrible

Good beer to just drink out of the bottle, don’t get much more from the pour. Does have a slight skunkiness, but that’s not always bad....always better than a Heineken.

Hansen (8561) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2004
In danish:"Gaaaaaaab!" Nothing special at all. Not anything worth writing about. Thin, a little sweetness, and perhaps a little bitterness. Light-yellow.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2004
tasteless and no aroma. Light yellow with almost no head. To little carbon dioxide. How could I think that I«we ever liked this beer?!

Eructoblaster (4136) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Highly carbonated pale yellow body with a thick but light-speed fading head. Average euro-lager hoppy nose. Taste is refreshing and definitely hoppy with some bready hints. Its bitter final is quite fair. Ordinary, and far below the average for a german beer. Nonetheless, I prefer this to Heineken.
