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. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2004

Bubbly when fresh. Yeasty flavor that I enjoyed, quite refreshing. Had a skunky smell, but not noticed when tasted. madquacker (1170) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2004
A very natural but somewhat blandish taste. Very good though. Clean and crisp.

710 ml green bottle. Imported. I got this to accompany some chillie and decided to rate it. Poured a clear pale straw with lots of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Thin white head. No lacing.Apple juice nose with some hops. Crisp and fruity flavour. OK mouthfeel. Cider finish. Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Not a very good beer at all. Its refreshing and drinkable when cold but thats about it. Light with a faint hoppiness, the only admirable quality of this beer. pootzboy (1805) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2006 Probably the best of the German mega brewed pils. I’ve had this bottled, on tap, and now canned. I HAD to try the can because I am amazed at the consistancy of this beer in cans. Not disappointed....canned the same familiar taste as bottled without the worry of the odd light struck "skunked" bottle. Tastes the same everywhere because they are a single source exporter. I love the aroma... floral hops...very pungent. Crack a Beck’s in a closed room and they can smell it across the way.
It poured the familiar light gold. Small snow white head that vanishes quickly to a lace (as a good Pilsner would). The mouthfeel is much like a pilsner ...tart, slight hint of citrus to start but a more light bodied lager malty taste mixed with that Beck’s tart tang (this can was relatively fresh tasting), then finishes desert dry with the signature metallic aftertaste. The only downfall of Becks is that it is not a very drinkable beer when its not fresh....very acidic...skunky nose to it. HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Another green bottle beer that is very good when fresh and un-skunked. Nice toasty malty flavor. Great balancing bitterness and very clean tasting beer. Nothing to crave, but excellent to sit around and drink multiple bottles. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pale Gold In Color. Had it as a Beck’s Bomber 22oz... Took a while to Choke This one Down.
