I do not recommend Beck's. It simply cannot compare with German beers like Warsteiner. I would even prefer St. Pauli Girl to this one.

This is one of the best beers in the world. Easy to drink, great taste. The only problem is it is far to expensive in Australia.

a good beer but since i've had a chance to sample so many other specially crafted beer, this one does not stack up. i used to think that the skunky taste was part of a stronger beer....well, not anymore. this beer is a bit skunky.

Very small head. Drinkable beer, not something I would have all to often, good amount of carbination.

Bottle, from the Hogshead, Birmingham. I only really rated this one to get it out of the way, but I must say, it's not as bad as I remembered, certainly considering how popular it is with the masses! Fairly pale, small fluffy head. Classic German bitterness, with light saaz throughout. Balanced, refreshing, crisp. Slightly bland, but qualitat. Would be, and indeed is a very popular session lager.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Pale yellow, fizzy. Has the benefit of a tangy crispness, but a forced hop flavour to overcome the incredible carbonation. Opening one of these must damage more of the ozone layer, do the world a favour and yourself, leave it in the bottle.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nothing special; kinda bland, but no adjucts is nice. Pale, short lasting white head, but smooth crisp taste. finish was a little odd; starts of skunkiness probably.

Golden amber color. Light taste. Much less favorable than the dark version. Stonger hops flavor.

Becks made me puke. It wasn't the AMOUNT of beer that I had, but rather the lack of quality thereof. (It may have been the quantity).

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
subdued, musty aroma. very light straw colour, almost clear with a tinge of gold really. unimpressive flavour with no highlights, some malt and hop character. thin on the palate. i'll only get this again if there's nothing better going.
