Chilled bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner glass.
Two fingers worth of head that quickly shrinks down to only a thin layer sitting a top of a bright yellowish gold body with only a minor amount of effervescent bubbles moving up ward.
Smell detects only the weakest of malt and little else.
Taste has a mild malt notes and perhaps soft hops. On the mouth Becks is crisp and weak bodied.
There really isn't much to write home about with Becks and it is very far from complex.
This really deserves to be approached on its own merits and its place in beer society. This beer is great for a BBQ beer or something to drink whilst watching the game or at the local bar. There is nothing in this beer that would hold beer snobs interest long enough to finish a glass.

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.
