Although I never had the German original, this one brewed by Borsodi in Hungary is even worse. First, I don't like German pilseners, and this one is bitter and corny - although there is no corn in it. It is just the German hops that make it this bad.
Okay before I start bashing this beer let me stop. This beer is not good. Period.

So as a lover of micro and marco brews i can say that this is good in between a rolling rock and hennigen sorry if i spelt it wrong but personal if your looking for a cheap pale ale style beer its the way to go skunky on smell but the flavor is there its kinda wheaty and matly with a slight bitterness but over all good bang for your buck and good with greasy food like pizza or burgers personalyt i think to many people become beer snops and forget about people getting into beer or people that wanna try new cheaper beer and ill say for a good drinking beer just to have beer and still get a buzz or just to get some beer flavor to quench that thirst this or fosters lager

Thick white head that dissipates quickly. Beer is golden in colour and there are lots of ascending bubbles.

Smell is grain and sweetness.

Taste is grain, slight sweetness, hint of white bread.

Beer is light to medium body and the finish is dry.

A good beer but not a great one. Enjoyable nonetheless. But there are better ones in the style.

This would pair well with barbecue and seafood.

skunk of course with this green bottle and delicate northern Germany Pilsener style, but somehow that is part of the game and almost style defining. This beer is not exciting but clean and crisp, refreshing. I remember having this at the end of long San Francisco nights just to clense my palate from all these old school IPA palate wreckers. It tasted like soda then.

Soooooooooooo good. Sooooooooo good.

A fav.

Ignore any hard core alcoholic/stoner naysayers. Just relax, and enjoy one of the gifts of life.

Look: I am drinking it from a can, and I am too afraid of pouring it into a glass. I don't want my glass ruined.
Smell: Smells like sour beer that was left out too long in the sun.
Taste: It tastes rusty for some reason.
Feel: I don't really know what to say here. I think maybe this talks about carbonation? Anyway, It's kinda okay.

Becks 12oz bottle - Picked up at Camp Stanley burger bar after trip to Camp Red Cloud library to get some CD’s to copy. Nice saturday get away from everyone. Very pale, almost white yellow. Minimal foam, nicely balanced hop and malt aroma, firm body, like a German model on a beer poster. Quite dry in finish, as if giving the impression that it’s no longer on your breath and feel safe to go back to work after having one or more for/with lunch. Crisp and light on the middle and tip of tongue, as if to possess it and spew hot game on the Korea-for-a-year 8’s who will revert to 5-6 status once back in ‘States. After sitting a while, gets a bit more malty in balance and grainy aroma takes over, most likely mirroring what your breath actually smells like going back to work after that two+ beer lunch. At least the bitterness of that gig has been replaced by sweet sugar malt coating your perception of life. Probably why beer has always been so popular.
