Pours a pale straw golden color with a modest-sized snow white head, resembles an American light lager, attractive broken lace, mildly carbonated. Slight malt aroma with some mild herbal and a fairly strong skunk component. Taste begins with fairly rich malt and smooth carbonation, flavor turns grainy towards the middle. Toward the middle part of the taste the hops appear with a harsh and bitter medicinal quality that lingers well past the end of the taste. The mouthfeel is rather watery. This beer is does not meet the high level of quality that is the hallmark of German brewing. Not a terrible beer, but terribly average. It is unlikely that I will purchase this again.

Sampling right now on 7/22/14 and it has been a long since I had a regular "Beck's", probably since Orlando but that was 4 years ago easy. Originally from Germany but now brewed in the USA by the Bud folks in St. Louis, Missouri. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 11.2 ounce (330ml) 'Beck's handled-glass stein.
Pours a straw-yellow in color with a thin white head that settles down to just along the sides of the glass. No lacing is really seen, just a bit when sipped. The aroma is not much of really, just some grains. Not 'skunky' though like so many that come in a green bottle for some reason. The taste is pretty much the same just of some grain and hops. Not bitter but just plain for the most part. Overall, it is OK but nothing special but is smooth and refreshing. Bit watered-down though.
