Beck's Gold
500ml can
€3.90 @ Relay Frankfurt Flughafen, Terminal A+

Nothing hurts more than paying airport prices for a beer that's just mediocre, but what can you do? There wasn't much for me to choose from, and the Franziskaner (that I always drink) cost the same amount, so I went with this based on the Beck's name. Unfortunately that didn't help. This is clearly a beer that they've toned-down for the masses. For all I know it could just be Beck's with water added because, honestly, that's what it seems like. The bitterness that you expect from a solid north German brewery is just not there, and of course hop flavor follows. The malt is tamed down as well, but of course it would have to be or it would go out of balance... which means the body is lighter as well. So yes, it's a crisp, clean Euro lager with a firm bitterness, but there are so many of those out there that this one just doesn't stand out.

Poured from a bottle of 330 ml. First impression just by looking at the bottle, this looks like a summer/party beer, like it's Beck's Green Lemon brother. It pours a golden yellow colour with a two finger soapy head that quickly goes away.

Aroma is of corn and something sweet, can't really recognize it.

The taste is mildly bitter, traces of corny taste can be found but thankfully not that stong.

Very thin in body and minimal carbonation.

Overall, as I was expecting, a light summer beer that you can drink in large quantities, great for parties I guess.
