Beer Review #22: Becks

A beer that is very similar to Heineken, with the “skunky” type of flavor is Becks. A classic German lager, Becks (www.becksbeer.com) might be a little bit sweeter but tastes pretty close to Heineken. With so many terrific beers out there today it is hard to believe that people would drop $8-$10 for a six pack of this. 
RATING

Pour: Light yellow pour with no head.
Aroma: Grassy aroma, that popular “skunky” smell
Taste: Somewhat skunky, but drinkable. A little sweet at the end.
Overall: D

Eastern Iowa:  This beer is available at most liquor/grocery stores in Eastern Iowa but……Save your money! Unless there is a drastic price reduction don’t drop the cash on this stuff and go for some Boulevard Wheat, Sam Adams, or Goose Island Honker’s Ale.
