A: Golden, pale, a surprisingly fluffy head and minor lacing. Large bubbles streaming from bottom of weizen glass.

S: Corn, lemon, wet grains. Fresh bread-y. Pleasant.

T: Sweet malts dominate, sweet corn, simple syrup, lemon, saltine crackers. Not much hop bitterness which is kind of expected. Grassy towards the end.

M: Medium carbonation, kind of middle of the road... easy drinking.

O: A barely decent German Pilsener. Theres loads of better ones out there.

Pours one finger of head on a clear light straw body.
The aroma is clean grains and lemon.
The taste is moderate lemon bitterness. Fine enough.
The texture is smooth and crisp.
Pretty enjoyable.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Pours a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some grains, not much going on. Taste is crisp, light, some grains, slightly sweet, a bit on the mild side. Feels light in the mouth and overall this is a mediocre beer.

A different recipe from regular Becks lager that dials down the sharp bitterness to a mellow and rounded flavor that is very pleasant and easy to drink, if slightly underwhelming. Unfortunately "pleasant" soon turns to monotonous, and this beer simply doesn't have enough character to qualify as sessionable. One bottle is enough, and the palate craves something else.

This poured out as a clear golden yellow color with a fizzy white head on top. The retention was thin and lasted for a little while. The lacing was basically nowhere in sight. The smell of the ever is slightly floral, there is some grainy notes and a tough of creaminess as well. The beer smell way better than any other Beck's I've had in the past. The taste is sweet, there is a dominant malt flavor with some corn-like flavors as well as this hops shining through again. The mouthfeel is pretty standard, it's thin and carbonated. Overall it's the best thing I've tried from Beck's I'm glad it wasn't terrible. If I had to be a cheap date and this was available I would order it.
