2.45/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A clear pale golden color body with a small fizzy white head , medium to high carbonation. Aroma of floral hops and faint skunk pee. Flavor is lightly sweet with the typical Euro lager hop notes, very boaring and not very good, light body , crisp mouthfeel . Drinkable but nothing I would buy again.

Serving type: bottle

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: Decent straw golden with good head and retention.

S: Grain, malt and light hop. Kinda plain.

T: Same as the smell.

M: Smooth and refreshing. Maybe a tad watery.

O: This beer isn't as bad as many make it out to be, but not as good as I remember.

Serving type: can

2.71/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Serving: Bottle, from the bottle
Served: 13 July 2014

Appearance: Had this one from the bottle, but the bottle is green which is never a good sign with beer, especially 'imports'. Label says it was brewed in St. Louis according to German Reinheitsgebot.

Smell: This bottle isn't skunked, so that's good. Smells otherwise of light, sweet malts, and some astringent earthiness.

Taste: You can tell this one is all-grain when you compare it to American macros, which is nice, but it doesn't make up for much. The taste is slightly fuller than a Miller Lite but has a weird funk to it that definitely isn't skunkiness and is certainly something else.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation at least makes this one refreshing.

Overall: Not a great beer, and one that I would only drink if it was free at a party.
