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.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Brewed by Budweiser in St. Louis. How can they do such a poor job? I mean they have German brewmasters with doctorates in brewing science and still produce something this bad? Must be the boys up in accounting that do not allow them to make a decent beer. Has the same syrupy taste that all Budweiser products have. Worse yet, a couple of bottles will give you a fierce headache. Might I suggest that we go back to importing Beck´s from Germany?

Tap @ Freimarkt Bremen, oktober 2017. Dit is samen met Haake Beck het standaard biertje van Bremen zover ik kon zien. Qua doordinkbaarheid maakt het niet uit maar toch heeft deze Becks net even meer body en smaak als het er op aankomt. En als het om genießen aankomt is dit toch de beste lokale lager die je kan halen. Voor de rest vrij neutraal van geur, bitter maar niet te bitter en een standaard heldere gele pils kleur met een witte schuimkraag.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: light biscuit and yeast, soft malt, wheat APPEARANCE: medium-light straw yellow, clear, nice visible carbonation, one finger white head, foam is dense small bubbles TASTE: soft malt, some dairy/cheese, small touch of smoke and barrel, grass and herbs, some noble-ish (Bavarian) hopness PALATE: relatively light body, good sparkle upfront then some softness, tad creamy, good balance OVERALL: a nice looking lager, nothing too special but better than many average lagers, respectable nose, has some nice Bavarian taste, missing that extra kick however easy and pleasurable to drink.

Piepenhenrich (1124) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
One of (if not the) best selling German Pils on a global perspective. Turns out to be more on the bitter end of the scale. Always a save bet, when you have a BBQ or party. But then again, as a globally exported mainstream beer, it lacks any special features to make it stand out here.

zacgillbanks (5413) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from ASDA, Washington. Very pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet floral anfd gentle grassy flavour followed by herbal and fruity notes on the finish. Ok, but too high an ABV for the flavour.

smaynard6000 (1224) - Apopka, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours a sparkling pale golden color with minimal white head and somewhat lively carbonation. Skunky aroma. Somewhat sweet flavor. Light bodied with a bit of hops in the finish. Not great but I would like to try this on tap to avoid it being lightstruck.

660 ml bottle,bb 07/2018. Golden,clear,thin,quickly vanishing head. Nose - malt,grass/hay, distant echo of open sewer. Taste - inoffensive,generic "premium" lager.

alexmate (249) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Typical cloudy golden colour. Has a hoppy aroma which took me back to my teenage days of sneaking into dive bars and staggering into a urinal. Not sure if that's a good thing. Taste is thin with fairly high carbonation. Big on hops, grass, steamed vegetables and a bitter creamy aftertaste. Not bad, but not really much better than other domestic lagers, despite being marketed as premium and often costing more than the likes of Carling and Fosters.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 alcohol, golden, clear, white foam, medium sweetness, very bitter, heavily sour,

Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - SEP 18, 2017
Beck’s pours a clear lager-yellow color. Its head is tall, of medium lifetime, and leaves no lacing behind. The nose isn't particularly complex, but it is solidly noticeable with cereal notes from the malt with grass and light cannabis notes from the hops. It has a faint acidity right from the front palate, then it proceeds to reveal the simple, metallic-bitter contribution from the hops. The finish is rather short, wherein the heat from the alcohol is well hidden. The medium to lively carbonation offers a decent texture. Inoffensive, trivial, boring.

loscovar (646) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2017
On tap. Pretty common lager, a bit more hoppy than others, refreshing but not really special
