In my youth, this beer was considered a treat. This is the first Beck's I have had for several years, at a New Orleans jazz club named Fritzel's ( great music!). German named venue calls for a German named beer.

Anyway, this beer is ok. Best just fresh out of the bottle, sweet, grassy, a bit lemony. Good initial head from draft but almost no lacing.

It will be a while until I have another. I am thankful that so many good beer have come in to being since I was 21!

I do not know about rating this as "poor". It sure beats any of the American Adjuncts out there...some of them getting "okays ". This import was a pleasure to drink when all you could get here in the U.S. was the typical AA beer.

My favorite overall beer. I don't care that it's brewed by Anheuser Busch now I still enjoy the taste and the availability. Will always stock my fridge with this good German style beer as long as I can find it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I wouldn't prefer the real German Beck's, but I'm not going to throw a fit over it being brewed by AB
