On my previous encounters, I had thought (as others had) that this tasted like regular Beck's, only dark. But this tasting was a little more than that. The color was dark ruby with a short-lasting thin head. The smell was of sweet malt. The flavor was much more flavorful than the aroma let on. The roasted malt was pleasing, but not complex enough to consider great. There was good carbonation, but it was a little thin. I would rate this beer as highly drinkable however...it had decent flavor and was light to drink. Refreshing.

Have been a long time Euro beer (mostly German) drinker since the late 60's, I know these days and even back then Beck's was never at the high end of the beer list, but it has always been good choice when nothing else was around or you were lucky enough to find a fresh barrel on tap.
Well a few weeks ago I was at one of the chain liquor stores that happen have Becks reg and dark on sale, so I picked up a few cases of the dark. Then I remembered something about Bud buying out Becks or bottling it for them here.
Now for the important part, I had a bottle of Becks dark and it was pure "PANTHER PISS" the old familiar prune-ish taste was gone. I really do not drink Bud but if I did I would imagine a can of that w/ some liquid smoke poured in. I bought a few cases of this so I figured it may or been a bad bottle or two but tried another and had a few friends over and had them try it. I really do not want to post what as said about the product.
So I guess another brewer went the way of the past selling out there heritage or perhaps just had to get out of the business as they could not keep up w/ all the new crud on the market.
To the board, sorry I'm not well versed enough on posting the characteristics , just called it as I saw it.
Shame on PUD !
