#32 Beck’s

Type: Pale Lager
Container: Bottle
ABV: 5%
Sticker Price: $7.99/6-pack of bottles

I picked this one up as it was the cheapest import at the store that day. Good thing it’s hot out and I’ll probably drink anything within reach. I won’t be reaching for this one again.

  • Rating (5=best): 2
  • Nose: A bit skunky and grassy. Wet hay.
  • Flavor: Bright, watery, unsatisfying bitterness.
  • Finish: Bitter finish, citrus pith. A bit astringent like quinine.
  • Notes: Not very interesting. Refreshing in a watery way but the skunkiness is a turn-off. The bitterness isn’t the pleasant hoppy kind but more the annoying white grapefruit pith kind.
  • Shilpi: “It’s refreshing but a little to bitter for my taste.”
