Aroma: Cereal, yeast, cheap lemonade ; Appearance: Pale clear golden ; Taste : medium bitterness ; medium to low sweetness ; Palate: medium to light body, thin texture, average carbonation, long kinda unpleasant bitter finish, but not the pleasant bitterness (lasts for hours in the throat). Overall, completely bland and average beer, which, for a pils, is quite a good rating.

Medium-dry finish with lingering graininess. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: The syrup could be more refined, to a toffee/caramel.

A fairly typical lager of the type. Not a huge amount of aroma, a slightly sickly sweetness along with some bitter hop but not especially tasty and not much to it by way of body or aftertaste.

Beck’s Alkoholfrei (Non-Alcoholic)
Bottle at Great Expecetations, Reading. Pallid gold with an excessive and unpleasantly prickly fizz in the thin body. Metal dominates throughout; it’s possibly the most metallic beer I’ve ever had. I thought at one point I detected a hint of biscuit, and there was definitely a bit of cardboard in the finish. But mainly it’s metal, with a long-lasting and unpleasant aftertaste. Disgusting. Possibly poisonous. Avoid.

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……….

Beck’s Red Ale
Deep red-brown with a fast-settling head. Like an Irish Red crossed with a Helles, it has like fruit and smoky cocoa but with a dissonant, typically German, dry grassy note. Not bad, but odd and a bit dull.

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.

Beck’s Oktoberfest
12 oz bottle poured. Saw this bottle, and just had to have it. Copper pour with a lasting foam head. Pretty skunky aroma, straw from quite a distance. Flavor seems to be similar to the regular Becks product, only sweeter. Some caramel addition. A bit of a spicy malt if you sit here, concentrate, and really think about it. Overall, extremely odd, but not discouraging. Drinkable. My biggest regret: not saving this for a larger tasting. Sorry, Mcberko.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. A Lutton tick if there ever was one! Modest foam, very clear amber Vienna lager. Rotting vegetable aroma. Sweet, disgusting odd malty character. Egg, fermented rotten veg, odd fruitiness. Bright carbonation, at least. Bitter cocoa. Rather disgusting, an insult to the style. Pretty darn similar to the regular becks with a touch of added fruit and disgustingness. Nein, danke.

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...

Draft. Clear and bright looks of a Pils. Smells and tastes like a nothern German Pils. Dry, grassy, earthy, musty, bitter. Good carbonation. Refreshing and sessionable. By no means outstanding but way better than Beck’s...

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.

Beck’s Oktoberfest
330ml bottle from a Lider supermaket in Providencia. Santiago, Nov. 2016. Pours a clear bright reddish color with a small fizzy white head that diminishes slowly leaving a thin film. Aroma is malty, with a good solid profile showing notes of biscuit, bread, caramel and some fruity touches. Slight hints of apple and pear. Quite good. Taste is light, not overblowing, but solid. Mostly sweet, biscuity, with good bitter balance from (probably) Saaz hops. Herbal and apple touches near the finish. Light to medium body. Highly drinkable. I drank gallons of these in the last few days when meeting some friends. Great when in the mood for a simple, straight-forward lager with character.

Drank from the bottle aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) while at sea. It was our Thanksgiving Day treat. Oddly sweet and bready with mild earthy hop notes. Reminds me of wort that hasn’t been fermented yet. An attempt at a clean and crisp finish with a lingering wet malt flavor profile. Medium bodied. Not very good.

Bottle (A rare gem from the Munich Metro!):Dryish toasty nose with a tinge of dried fruits in the background, maybe some metallic traces as well; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and sticky; slightly lingering , but pretty thin, toasty-bitter finish. Drinkable, but no glory...

Butelka 0,33l. Po agresywnym nalewaniu tworzy się średnio i grubopęcherzykowa piana, która po chwili opada praktycznie do zera. Aromat mało intensywny, trochę skunksa, trochę mydła, trochę słodu, śladowe ilości aromatów cytrusowych. W smaku więcej ameryki. Dość wytrawne. Goryczka niska, nasycenie wysokie.

354 ml bottle. Bought in a Lider supermarket in Santiago. Dark amber/pale color, low head. little smell, some yeast, red fruits, honey sweetness to it. Easy to drink, super sweet ending, and pale beggining, nuts it there. Like a belgium beer without the strength. Well made and balanced. Pretty good value for money.

12 oz. green bottle. Crystal clear orange/amber with an off-white head. Smells kind of like what I think Beck’s lager smells like with a bit of slightly charred grain and lager yeast. The taste has this too. Light, slightly watery body. A bit of nice German malt comes through but it’s not very dominate. This lingers in the after taste which is nice. Easy to drink and refreshing, but not very interesting. Given the green bottle, I wonder if it’s better fresh.
