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 At least the bitterness of that gig has been replaced by sweet sugar malt coating your perception of life.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.

I always found this a bit disappointing. It's ok but never wowed me.

Yellow gold color,sweet grain,malt andcereal aroma
Taste is similar but definitely is sweet with a slight bitter taste with a bit of a dry finish. There was no skunk taste which I remember a lot with this beer. It's not winning in any area but if it's ice cold there's an enjoyable element to it

Just go get rainier instead! This stuff is soulless crap - you're better off with rainier or even many of the Mexican lagers like Victoria or Dos Equis

Light straw cold with soapy white head. Nose is barley and grains. Taste is corn, rice, barley, and some hops on the finish. Watery mouthfeel but finishes dry. Refreshing when ice cold. This is my go-to cheap pilsner. I usually buy the cans to avoid the potential skunk.

Beck's bought a 12 bottles for 14,99$ plus tax

Look: Clear yellow golden color with a line of white head.

Smell: Hops, sweet smell.

Taste: bitterness is definitely there, the sweetness is there again.

Feel: Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Easy drinking even with that bitterness.

So overall would I recommend? Definitely,

This was certainly not my first time having this beer, but as such, it was one I hadn't had in ages, especially since I've gotten into craft beer. Attended a BBQ and this was one of the choices.
Pours a clear straw yellow color with a minimal head that instantly dissipated.
Non descript aroma. Despite the green bottle, I did not detect skunk. A bit of grainy malt and sweetness as it warmed.
Served cold it is a light, crisp and ultra clean lager that finishes semi dry. Basically watery and inoffensive. Some toasted malt sweetness as it warms. The carbonation has a little kick but not overly fizzy.
Honestly I don't find this as bad as the ratings suggest. It has some refreshing properties and works just fine at a summer BBQ.
