The beer pours an almost clear color, but with a light shade of gold in there. The head appears frothy for a moment until it totally fades to nothing leaving a slight lacing. The nose is nice although there is little character to speak of. Sometimes simple is the best way. This is a very clean tasting brew. There is no maltiness about it. I wonder if they use adjuncts in the grist. This beer is just too clear for words. The mouthfeel is alright, except that it could use a little more carbonation. If it's going to taste like a crappy macro, it might as well get the whole stereotype going. The body is extremely light and it drinks well. Like I said, it is a very clean tasting beer. I wonder why I paid a premium price though.

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.
