Weak ass yellow appearance, more water than malt apparently. No head. Aroma watered down the skunk I dig on from the regular version, but it wasn't "bad" per se, just missing.

Mild bitterness, especially for the lack of hops and body for the beer. So much water in this beer.

Sampled last night on 11/27/14 but had this once before a few years back. Used to be made in Bremen, Germany BUT now made in St. Louis, Missouri by Budweiser. The alcohol content isn't listed on the label but I am guessing like 3%. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass "BECK'S" stein.

Brew pours a pale straw-yellow in color with a very thin white head. Nothing really to mention for any lacing. The aroma is on the 'skunky' side (seems like MOST beers in a green bottle is like this for some reason) with some grains. Pretty much the same is said for the taste also with a metallic tasting soda water style flavor that is very watered down.. Nothing special here at all and won't try it again. Light bodied with high carbonation.

slight skunky aroma and taste
Appearance was a bland uninspiring yellow
Palate- carbonated with a light bodied feel
Overall- I was completely blown away by how bad this was. I didn't expect this beer to be that bad. I think it is in the same class as Coors Light
