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.

Pretty awfull, had it in a can. poured pale and fizzy. A little hops but tasted like theyd been sitting in someones gym shoes before going in the boil. Skunky paper factory aroma.. yuck.

Tap: This was very fresh. Very pale gold with a small lasting head with good lacing. Aroma of pilnser/lager malt and very strong bread yeast (like a loaf rising). Flavour was a bit watery but refreshing nonetheless. Palate had some bitterness but nothing distinctive. Good for a summers day.

Light yellow, fizzy head. Pils malts. Lightly light stricken flavor and aroma. Musky hops. Thin and weak with a slight sour finish.

Good old Becks in the green bottle. Has a subtle malt aroma. Follows through with light hop flavor, medium bodied. Average not very tasty. A bland finish, but an easy drinking beer. Not the best that Germany has to offer, but if you can find one thats fresh drink up.

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.

Cerveza rubia normal o sea q sigue la ley de pureza alemana. Aroma fuerte y sabor un poco decepcionante.

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
