Beck's beer has an excellent after taste, and it has a beautiful color. I can tell you that it has a wonderfully fresh smell. It is only lightly carbonated. The feel is only a slight bite; it is very smooth, and it goes down almost like whole milk. Beck's in the bottle does produce a very modest head, but not the shaving cream in a mug look that you would expect from some keg beers. The taste is excellent.
I serve only Beck's to my guests, and it is best served cold in a frosted glass. Everyone I know prefers Becks to other beers, and it pays to keep a supply on hand. Becks has been my favorite big name beer for at least 20 years. The world expects Deutsche quality and craftsmanship, and they will find it in Beck's beer.

This beer is not the best but is great when it comes to drinking it on a hot sunny day when you are so so thirsty. It can easly be replaced with water, no bitterness at all with an avarage flat taste but with a great feel I recommend you to have it in your fridge once in a while.

Pale straw color. Smell is skunky reminds me of Bud and Miller, and why I used to not like beer. Taste is grainy with more of that smell. It's light and carbonated. I could only make it through half a bottle.

I don't have much to say about this beer. It's meh. It's not gross, it's drinkable, but that's not saying much. Why did I buy this, I don't know, guess I wanted to try a well known mass produced beer for some odd reason. No point in describing the attributes as there really are none that stand out.

Excepting a handful of especially repellent, high gravity malt liquors, this is probably the most easily available beer I've never reviewed. I was actually kind of shocked to see that I didn't tick it off way back in 2005 when I first started reviewing...at the time, I was quite the fan.

But I haven't thought to purchase a Beck's in over a decade. My friend brought some over, though, so I figured it might be a nice time to revisit what, in my teenaged opinion, passed for fancy beer.

It's a decent pour into a pilsener glass, pale yellow with a wispy white head. The aroma bares no trace of skunk, as is the norm with most imported green-bottled beers in the last ten years or so. And honestly that's a bit of s hame, as some skunkiness would at least be *something*. This is an incredibly light aroma with just the barest hints of fruit and hay. Say what you will about Miller and Bud, but at least there's some liveliness to their grainbills.

Tastes a bit more assertive...actually more or less solid. Light fruit up front, dry hops in the back, and a bit of skunk in the finish. It's nothing to write home about, but at least there are no off nodes.
