Straw colour with a small head that disappears quickly and leaves minimal, spotty lacing. Grainy smell. Tastes over sweet with no hops or malt. Chemically and metallic. Smooth mouthfeel with a chemical tang. Bland beyond words. Pointless.

275ml bottle from Morrison's Supermarker, Glasgow:
Light amber to golden, a 1cm bubbly white head that disappeared completely after 20 seconds.

Very light with some corn & skunk, there was some adjuncts as well & faint grassy hops. Some bitterness comes through but like the rest this is light as well, bordering on weak.

Grassy hops & a light bitterness, there was faint skunk & a few lager type malts & adjuncts. A bland & weak tasting beer that didn't taste great at all.

Light bodied with a grainy feel to it, particularly towards the end of the beer & some chewy patches throughout. The body was very light & watery with some faint bitterness & slightly above average carbonation.

A fairly poor beer from Beck's, although to be honest I wasn't really expecting much more for it in truth. The beer was far too weak & light which made it a drag to work my way down, it wasn't even good for a macro pale lager either & it's not one I'll be picking up again.

On 28th Nov 13 I had a little Lager/Pilsner session and started off with a side by side Beck's v Beck's Vier. Both beers were poured into Veltin badged stemmed tulips. The Vier came in a green 275ml bottle, part of a pack. My son will get the rest of them.

The Vier looked identical to the original Beck's in every way: golden, clear, bright and clean looking: the heads the same white un-lasting wisp, so many in this style of beer seem to have.

This beer however was slightly sweeter and had less body depth than the stronger normal Becks, saccharine came to mind with the sweetness.

Overall it was OK, grainy and a little too sweet for a good Lager, but nothing really bad (or good) about it.
