i do not know what is different about this compared to beck light. I do not know if they have changed to this or what. I will say that this is a good bang for your buch as calories are concerned. yes the flavor is weak! but at 64 calories what do you expect. This is not a "beer drinkers beer" per say it's at least an alternative to michelob ultra,aspen or the other "low calorie" beers. for the 64 calories it is, this delivers acceptable taste.

Presentation: 12 oz green bottle with a freshness date on the back label, boasts only 64 calories must be pretty low in alcohol cause it only has 3.9 grams of carbs.
Appearance: Pours like sparkling water, quite a pale lucid yellow hue. The head retention lacks and the bubbles look soda like as they crackle away.
Smell: Faint yet odd mix of grain husk and over cooked hops.
Taste & Mouth Feel: Very dry, lighter than water on the palate. Very little grain flavor not sign of malt character. Hops are weak yet double with the crisp carbonation to add a bite. Nothing in the finish.
Drinkability & Notes: Tastes like a dry non-alcoholic beer. Why is there a need to brew something that is so close to water? I really hope the market dies on this stuff.

I believe it was Travita who shared this wonderful elixir.
The beer pours a very light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is terrible. I get a lot of corn and something that smells like an ashtray. The flavor is just as bad if not worse. Heavy on the adjuncts with no hops at all. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Absolutely awful.

Nostalgia aside, can this beer be rated in a glass? I can't recall pouring this beer before. Here goes... short-lived, thin head in a willibecker...tawny yellow color...aroma is pleasantly mass-produced...flat, faux malt appeal...for a light, it offers a pinch of taste and no aftertaste--a "hammer me" beer if there was one...still, that magic number 64 (calories) is apparently as magical for Beck & Co. as it is for the Wu-Tang Clan...

Appearance: looks like thin watery apple juice. No head and no signs of life in the glass (no bubbles).
Smell: weak grains, nothing going on...really!
Taste: very poor and feeble, taste is bare. Just some grains and off sweetness to it.
Mouthfeel: super light and a very misty feeling in the mouth/aftertaste. Very drinkable, I guess, compares to water as far as mouthfeel is concerned (incredibly light).

Skunked, watery, German-style pilsner. There's no other way to describe it. It does have a more grainy malt character to it than Beck's Light, and there are some delicate hop flavors in the background, but there's really not much going on. The flavor ranks right up there with non-alcoholic beers, and for the extra 1.8% abv that you're getting I see no point in bothering with this at all. There are much better light beers out there! Unless, of course, you really like that German malt and hop flavor - but if that's the case why not really enjoy one good bottle of beer versus two of these? Disappointing to say the least...

This is a generic light lager. Had a bit of a skunky smell. There is a watery taste; generally why I'm not a fan of light lagers. Its just really bland. It is drinkable, and is light bodied enough for the beginning beer drinker.
Overall I'd imagine there would be better choices than this.

Becks Light is not a very good off shoot of Becks regular...the beer pours golden clear with decent head and corbonation to start, both which fade rapidly. The smell is grain/barley and pilsner hops. The taste is sharp, pilsner hops strike first, then a slight balance of malt, the aftertaste is bitter. The mouthfeel is lacking because of the very light body, which is good if it is a hot afternoon. Overall it is a better than bud light...average beer.

12oz green bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a pale straw colored yellow with a thin fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The aroma is the grain, a touch of Euro skunkiness and faint spicy hops. The taste is very dry with faint grain and hop flavors. The mouthfeel is on the watery side due to the low ABV, and very prickly due to the high carbonation. Overall, not a horrible beer to drink on a hot summers day when you really don't want to drink a beer with much alcohol content, but for most instances, I will grab something with a little more flavor.

alright, enough flack from all you real men who dont drink light beer. sometimes drinking 5 imperials of barley wine and washing it down with 10 plates of nachos is a little overkill. theres nothing wrong with enjoying a light beer every now and then. (gasp!) anyway, this stuff is alright. im not in love with it, but hey, i dont like soda and this is a good pick for lunch or after the gym when you dont really need the full impact of a heavyweight brew but need a little refresher. its pale, of course, and it smells faint. lightly sweet and grainy if anything. its crisp in the mouth, refreshing and light and delivers a touch of sweetness matched with the slightest pressence of hops. like a dumbed down, lighter version of....becks! it is somewhat enjoyable, a lil funky and it tastes better than the usual NA beer. which is basically what it could be chalked up as (low alc. very low calories). so all in all, i think its a decent stab at a low cal/alch. beer, and on hot days when the sun is out in full effect, its a decent quencher.

Paid 2.79 euro for a 3-pack. This is marketed as "Beck's Next" in Italy. Looks sufficiently like fizzy yellow beer. Big bubble, fluffy head for about 5 seconds which then vanished into nothing. Smell is somewhat limey. Taste is about what you expect from this category, but slightly better than the standard low-carb beer. Mouthfeel is surprisingly nice, not too weak with decent carbonation. A little too sweet I suppose.

Poured from a 12 oz. green bottle into a pint glass, this beer pours light straw in color and quite clear. A half inch of foam settles to a surface ring in a minute or so.
Nose of very light grain and hops yet reminiscent of other offerings from Beck's to a degree. Taste follows with light notes abounding, or, at least there. This beer does indeed seem diluted to a degree yet seems comfortable in its own body. It is light and has a brief dry close. Feel exceeds its setup as there is some body there.
Seems as though we need a mini-light for these mini-ABV-brews for the caloric fearful amongst us. Then again, not, just go straight to Low Alcohol beers. Pass me a Bud Light please.
At half the strength of regular Beck's I took the liberty to dilute such in half. This beer surely exceeds that mixture and isn't nearly as watered down as others would imply. Still, a thin beer, yet not unexpected in body.

This beer poured the dullest shade of yellow with an ultra thin light white head, that was gone as quickly as it came with no residual lacing. The smell even in a tulip glass was a barely discernable light toasted malt. It drank like a cold glass of water with just a hint of malt flavor, absolutely no hops to speak off. Mouthfeel was thin and watery with some very mild carbonation. Overall its drinkable like a glass of water is drinkable, there is no enjoyment to be found in this beer. Easily the worst european beer I have ever had, and easily the most boring beer I have ever drank.

From a bottle marked: 09.2007-L25669M. I did not look at the date when I bought it. It was in a closeout rack. Now I know why. Still, it pours a very carbonated yellow like it should. The aroma has a skunky maltiness to it but nothing special. The mouthfeel is like water and the taste is bready and grainy. A typical LA.
