I was weaned on this beer and it has always been one of my favorite pilsners however due to the terrible inconsistancy in quality you get with the green bottles ( light struck skunkinesss) I gave up buying it except on tap...then the new inert eurocans started showing up...these are a godesend to the 3 top imports in green bottles that had a bad rap because of the sulpherous skunk created by photo degeneration of the yeast/hop byproducts.
This can produced very near draft taste...it was fresh, bright with nobel hops and the Beck special pale malt decoction was detectable in the falvor profile. A light hoppy dry German Pils that has stood the test of time.

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.
