2.17/5  rDev -28.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured into a wide flute glass. Nice dark amber color, transparent with two fingers of head that fell to a quarter finger in a minute.
Well, it smells like a regular Beck's. Metallic with a hint of malt.
Tastes like nothing... then a metal flavor followed by the characteristic bitter of a Berlin Lager. A big miss on style.
Light bodied, moderate carbonation.
No malt in the body or taste, no real flavor and not even close to a Dunkel. It is just a darker colored Beck's. Stay away.

2.81/5  rDev -7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Sampled last night on 5/5/14 and had this one many times before but has been awhile. Used to be imported from Germany but now made by Anheuser Busch. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very dark amber in color with a lighter tan head that dissipates quickly that leaves some lacing when sipped but not much. Smells and tastes different to what I remember back in the '80's and early '90's even. Aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of brown sugar. Taste is on the weak side and not like I really remember. Overall, disappointed.
