Short and sweet:

Party beer, and I would walk past it if it wasn't on sale.

This beer sampled as part of a tasting tonight. You kinda forget how nice this beer is in its simplicity and elegance.

Fairly standard when compared to other authentic German pilsners. What stands out is a very rich boquet of floral hops that hint toward fruitiness, herbal notes, and a nectar-like character that accents the sweet pilsner malt flavors and aromas. Light sulfers give the beer teeth, but that floral hop aroma and flavor supresses any would-be match stick sulfery character. Round and moderately creamy with a mild hint of grain astringency. Finishes crisp and with a balanced hop-malt lingering. A terrific small beer.

Appearance – Very weak head is raised from this golden brew and little to no lacing to be seen.

Smell – When you crack a bottle it smells like a freshly cut field of corn, and I do mean corn, not maze!!

Taste – It has a mild taste with a mellow hint of the grains it is brewed from which hits you from the front to the back of the tongue. To my mind no other flavours are to be detected but it is an extremely pleasing pilsner.

Mouthfeel – A nicely medium bodied carbonated beer with mild linger.

Over all – I will go on record now and say I actually do like Becks. It is not great and I appreciate that, but it is a Pilsener and as such is a simple brew and it does that very well. Perfect chilled to near freezing on a scorching summer’s day! A highly drinkable number and I find it to be very refreshing. Not too strong which also makes it a good drink for a night on the tiles. If you know everyone else is going to get messy on a night out then this one will keep you in the game till only you are left standing. Mind the hangover though!
