10 oz bottle poured into Pilsner glass.

Clearn, medium to dark gold with 1 inch white head that disappears quickly with very mild lacing. A lot of tiny bubbles.

Light malt aroma with minimal hop presence.

Taste is smooth, light malt, very mild bitterness an d dry finish. Bit of ethanol.

Light body, high carbonation.

Overall a smooth, dry American-style lager. No faults and lacks the typical Beck's skunk, but not much flavor or aroma going on.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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?
