Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.
Look: Nice golden color, rising bubbles. A white head that leaves an even film, but no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts, cereal grains, faint sour hops.
Taste: Clean, sweet. Malts and barley mostly, and a sour finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, dry.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden hue with long lasting, foamy, white head. Nose is of honey and bready malt. Body is light-medium and smooth. Finish is watery. Taste is of bready malt, some honey and hint of hops. Nice drain pour. At least I did not pay for this.

Clear gold with a two finger head that leaves quickly leaving a few splatters of lace.
Smell is malty with a bit of grassy hops.
Taste is sweet malts with a touch of herbal grassy hops.
Mouthfel is light to medium with adequete carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet with a almost no hop bitterness.
Overall a German malt liquor.
Too sweet not enough hop presence.
The German answer to Bud Light Platinum or Miller Fortune. Why bother?

A: Slightly pale, golden hue and bubbly with a sudsy head and a tiny bit of lacing
S: Lots of grains; a a bit of butter, with some toasty bready malts and a hint of citrus and herbal hops--quite subdued
T: Some slight hop bitterness up front followed by grainy, toasted malts; some butter; it's okay but pretty simple and the buttery sweetness on the back end gets a bit wearing
F: Kind of sticky--too sticky actually; okay body
O: A pretty simple and boring beer; nothing too off putting but pretty bland all around

A crystal clear, light straw color with no noticeable head.
Sweet honey malts with a bit of grassy hop and maybe some corn.
A sweet honey flavor with a bit of grassy hop and then a sweet lingering grain flavor in the finish with a touch of bitterness and alcohol.
Light and watery. Easy to drink. Matches the style.
Below average pilsener. Seems like the goal was to make a cheap lager with higher than normal alcohol.

Product of Saint Louis USA (really?) and it shows. Pours to a pale gold color and 3/4 inch head that falls to a 1/8 inch layer of foam. Lacing is low to none. Aroma is faint and grainy with a hint of played out noble hops. Flavor is bland and boozy with a cheap beer taste you wouldn't even expect from Becks. Grainy, slightly bready and sweet with a dry, slick finish. Mouthfeel is OK. Overall, a disappointing beer that goes along with the Bud Platinum trend. Never again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Three-finger white head with large bubbles rapidly eroding. Pilsner color, golden color beer. Nothing special.
S- Slightly spicy hop aroma. Pretty much all I'm getting from this. Like a pils.
T- Water with a few earthy hops dunked in. Tastes like watered down tea. Not bad tasting...but almost not tasting at all.
M- Water. Maybe a little bit thicker.
O- Mediocre is too high a score for this beer. Not bad tasting, but pretty much just water.

2.33/5 rDev -14.7%
Appearance: Weird carbonation, like soda water or Bud Light. Maybe a shade darker than regular Beck's, but just maybe.
Smell: This really does smell like absolutely nothing. Some dry hay only.
Taste/Mouthfeel: A bit of lemon peel. Less malt and more hops than regular Beck's. Decent crispness in the mouthfeel, but the bitter lemon overwhelms.
Overall Drinkability: About what I expected. Should be sapphire, but really fool's gold.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Pours a clear light amber golden yellow with a 1 finger white head. A decent amount of visible carbonation.
S: Hard to detect much aroma, a faint sweetness, malts and a hint of booze.
T: Not an overly flavorful beer. Balanced blend of light malts and the hops. Non-offensive but not interesting. Gets a little sweet as it warms.
M: Light body, average carbonation. Fairly clean finish, easy drinking.
Overall I'm not too impressed but really wasnt expecting much. Better to drink it cold. Take a pass.

Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a very transparent gold with little to almost no bubbles on the body. They definitely are floating creating a subtle head maybe 1/8" coming off white.
Smell: Easily the weakest property of the beer, light hops. If you ask me it comes off a tad skunk which it isn't but then again most pilseners never have amazed me when it comes to scent.
Taste: Light bitterness with a creamy wet hop infusion.
Mouth: Feels a touch dry, with a smooth bitter after -taste.
Overall: Not a bad beer at all, doesn't hit you hard in the pockets either it feels and tastes more like a bolder Beck's for the same price why not. Salud!
