Beck’s tasted more hoppy, crispy, rich but bitter like Ales. So far second to Budweiser for crispy but more bitter. Many compared it with Heineken but a lighter version. Some even think Beck’s is like coffee. You need to get use to it when you regularly drink it. Slowly you will enjoy the taste a lot. I wouldn’t recommend to beginner but more to senior beer lover. I think they should even know more than me. In summary as I am a light beer drinker, it is pretty hard for me to enjoy. But as a best seller of German beer in the world. I believe it deserve a more senior beer drinker to taste and review.
