2.1/5  rDev -23.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another bottle gifted to me from the neighbors. I could've sworn I reviewed this one before, but I guess not. I can't see this one being much different than the rest of them, though. "Originated in Bremen, Germany". "Product of USA". Expectations are low.

Poured into a miniature pint glass adorned with Victorian carriages.

A - Pours a pale golden yellow with some decent clarity. Just a shade darker than some of the crappier macros out there. Conjures about three fingers of foamy bone white head with decent staying power. Not a bad looking beer, for what it is.

S - The smell is of the usual suspects - adjunct corn & grains, dusty German pilsner malts,

T - Taste follows the nose - adjunct corn / grain, dusty wheat pilsner malt, and wet cardboard. Grainy and slightly metallic on the finish.

M - The feel is crisp, grainy, papery, and watery. Light-bodied, with mildly coarse carbonation. Non-refreshing, in my opinion.

Overall, another poor everyday macro. Tastes pretty much exactly the same as the rest of them do, and even considering that fact, I would probably rather drink something like Heineken Light instead.

Beck's ---2/5.

Back when I was a green bottle style of beer drinker, I loved this. Even when I moved away and into more craft styles, I still loved the hell out of Beck's. Now it sucks. The move to St. Louis was not good. Dunno if the recipe changed or the water's that different, but this beer is nothing like it used to be. That being said, I'm going to review it anyways.

A: Shade darker than the straw yellow macro. Vigorous carbonation. Finger of bleahced head. Rapid dissipation. Minimal lacing. Bubbles are fairly large. Carbonation is audible, but not fizzy on the level of a BMC.

S: This is where things quickly go downhill. Very muted smell. Slightly spicy hop presence. Hell, this one is so faint its not even skunky. Crackery malt, slightly salt. Maybe a bit of lemon. Again, the aromas are very muted.

T: The taste is muted, too. No spicy, herbal kick. Hell, no skunk. Just bland grainy sweetness followed by a small hit of noble hoppiness (and I mean small) and then back to the grain. Slightly metallic sweetness on the finish.

M: Easy enough. This one is fairly carbonated. Big bubbles prickle the tongue. Not quite overly seltzer, but still, lotsa bubbles.

O: Sucks. Well, not really. It's palatable. But it's obviously not the same beer that was made in Bremen. And it's a step down from that. While Beck's may was a craft phenom, I always enjoyed it. This....this lacks even the small amount of flavor that Beck's had. I'm hugely disappointed that they moved the brewery to the states. Will not buy again.

TL;DR - AB InBev sucks and I'm an idiot for buying this.
