3.13/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Vivid yellow, moderately bubbly body with a short white head...looks crisp...metallic ping that is Beck’s...clearly a grain presence...aggressive start and quick finish...most directly a back-of-tongue effervescence...slightly acidic moments but a generally clean flavor, great for partying...a classic for me, not as a session beer but definitely a quality macro that packs a cutting, crisp pilsner taste...a slight step from Pilsner Urquell

I agree with previous reviewers that this used to be a much, much better beer. It still isn't bad though I prefer Beck's to Heineken any day.

Appeareance is a dark-ish straw color. Not much to speak of. 1 finger head fairly persistent slight lacing. Smell used to smell great and skunky, like some good dank marijuana. Now it smells like Bud Light nonsense. Same witrh the taste, like pisswater now. I am reviewing what I used to like with those numbers, not the case I recently drank.

Well, my good sir, this thingy here tastes a little bit like bloody freaking motherfucking water. Fuck you. And fuck Beck's. And fuck this comment lenght.
This is so bloody unpolite to be called beer when it is not a beer and is more like a cat piss, Sir, pardon me, but this banana smells like a manzana.
Yes.

I used to love drinking Becks on a hot summer day. Haven't had it in a few years though. I knew something was wrong from the first sip, I thought it was just too old or something. But then I learn that it's brewed in the USA now by InBev. What a difference, and not in a good way.

There's less of that lager skunk that I used to love in this beer. More corn. Less aftertaste. It tasted stale and soulless.

Congrats Inbev, you've ruined another brand. Next I'm craving a good euro lager, I'll make a better choice. Even many American euro style lagers are insanely better. Prima Pils from Victory comes to mind.
