(16 oz can, brewed in St Louis, code 18118... purchased cold... poured into a simple glass mug - review #1300)

L: crystal-clear pale gold liquid; white slick foam forms but immediately begins to crumble... little lace, boogers

S: lightly-sweetish, lightly toasty, vaguely biscuity pale malt; soft, flowery, wet-grassy hop essence; very mild golden raisin fruitiness... little alcohol apparent; weak-to-mild intensity overall

T: typical Euro pale/pils spiced cereal grain flavor; bit of a rough, grassy bitterness midway; lightly syrupy and at the same time mildly dilute finish... softly peppery hop spice and a mellow doughy, toasted-nutty malt linger for awhile at the top of the palate, while the bottom keeps dry

F: notable zip on the tip of the tongue via lightly spritzy carbonation coupled with a building pungent bitterness... rather light-bodied, but with a little fat in the middle... bottom is dry but not crisp/cut

O: one of the first beers I remember buying soon after I'd turned 21, with a memorable moment being one morning at 9am having a Beck's and a Chipwich for breakfast - the majesty of being an adult fully realized

Very pale, very clear, Thin white head dissipates quickly; Has a mild nice beery aroma; Sparkly feel, moderately carbonated. The flavor is very mild, too mild, hardly any flavor at all.

Forty-some-odd years ago, I worked in an office that had a company tradition of having a beer on Fridays after work. It was my turn to go buy the beer and I bought a case of Beck's instead of the usual Budweiser or similar. Everybody hated it. It was up to me to drink all the Beck's. It had a much heavier, fuller flavor than this thin wimpy beer I just tasted. That couldn't possibly be the same Beck's, could it?

I used to like Beck's Dark, but I haven't seen it in a long while and I was told it was discontinued. but BA shows it as not being a retired beer. I need to find me some and see if it's suffered the same fate as the regular Beck's.

The beer is a clear very pale yellow color. The head was foamy and dissipated very quickly. The beer smells like a lite beer. It tastes like a watered down lite beer. I cannot get pass how this is just like a watered down American lite beer. The beer is thin and crisp. I guess thats a positive?

Brewed in St Louis.

Straw gold coloured, small head of foam, spotty lacing.

Getting beyond the strong light struck smell is difficult. Some kind of graininess, sweet malt lies beneath.

Grainy, sweet malty, sulfur, oh my how disappointing this is.

Good enough mouthfeel. This is really poor.

Six months before sell-by date.
Totally skunked.
It's been an unusually hot summer here (in Germany), maybe that's a factor.

Frankly, this is the kind of beer that passes for upscale at many social events in Louisville -- where the bourbon will be perfectly fine. It's an OK German pilsener, but not my top choice even among the imports. It is crisp and light, quite sessionable, though I can never bring myself to drink more than one at a time. I prefer Bitburger.
