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.

Review: 16 oz Can of Beck’s: ABV: 4.9% This is the canned version straight from Germany and not the green bottle variety that many have complained about on the various beer sites. So I imagine should be less skunky…. Incidentally, Becks were the first German brewery to use green bottles….. On pour get a very clear, very, very clear, light golden yellow appearance, with some nice carbonation, bubbling away. Has a decent sized frothy white head that looks good, but does reduce in size but maintains overall. Some small lacing. Overall looks pretty decent For the aroma I get a very slight whiff of a real beery smell, but its quite faint, can smell the grains, all nice but faint ………… On taste we get a nice creamy intro…..but there is a very strong lingering bitter taste throughout that pierces this beer. It is slightly stringent and not very nice to taste No real aftertaste? Bit of a cardboard taste detected as well Is possible to get a nice mouthful and the beer has some depth to it with the barley and malts, but….that overall sour bitter taste prevails, of sweet corn perhaps, and its not good, and I found this beer overall fairly hard to stomach to be honest. Not a good beer at all……….

50 cl. can. Clear light yellow with a medium but short-lived white head. It has a quite metallic aroma which consists of malt and grains. Taste is medium sweet with a very light sourness, and a light bitterness at the end. Light body, thin to oily texture, average carbonation, dry finish. Another watery lager which you can drink on a hot summer day to refresh yourself.

Grumpelmies (177) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle. Flat and boring. Metallic, grassy and skunky by default. Used to drink loads of this when I was younger and didn’t know better. A little bit more on the bitter side than some of the other big German Pilsener but that really doesn’t mean a lot...I will never spend money on it again but when it’s for free...

DonGregorio (206) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Small bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma of skunk and malt. Light sweet taste of grain and straw. Watery and light bodied, carbonation is average to lively. Another boring lager.

Brewhemia (293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2016
Pale clear yellow with white head. Light sweetness in the aroma though not much specific malty notes, more like wine gums or some sort of candy. I can’t really sense much if any hoppiness. The taste is light sweet with malty notes of bread with a little grassy hop flavor and very little bitterness. A bit weak bodied and undercarbonated to my taste.

Review written before I made ratebeer account. Like the polish pale lagers I’m used to, except more watery.
