Origin: Bremen, Germany
Overall Impression: Mild herbaceous and floral hoppiness with a crisp finish
Beck's has over 140 years of heritage and is originally brewed in Germany according to Reinheitsgebot, the German purity law of 1516, with only 4 natural ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water.
Golden in color, Beck's is a classic German-style pilsner with a robust, distinctive full-bodied taste, a fresh “hoppy” bouquet, distinct bitterness and a rich, full head.
Being at the forefront of innovative thinking, Beck's is well known for supporting up and coming talents within art, design, fashion and music. To find out more visit www.becks.com

Beck's low alcohol intensity means it shouldn't be paired with foods high in richness. We recommend pairing with Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines. The malt sweetness and bitterness from the hops are at the right level to play sandbox to medium heat food. Whilst the crisp hoppiness can also lift spicing and starches allowing all flavours to shine through.
Home-Run Pairing: Salmon Sushi
Moist rice has a slight nutty texture and Beck's cracker malt flavour helps enhance this. The beer also has the right level of malt sweetness and bitterness to match the heat from wasabi. The bitterness helps balance fat and umami from salmon, meaning you'll get a fuller taste from the salmon, with the carbonation cleansing the palate after each bite.

Tiny bottle of top class lager
Tiny bottle 275ml, less than half a pint. Ideal for a glass of beer with my lunch. A 440ml can is too much in one go. Excellent tasty lager.
GOOD FLAVOUR, GOOD STRENGTH
A cool bottle of this goes down very well when cooling off after a hot day. GERMAN BEER FEEL & FLAVOUR sort of dryish hint with a light under-current of bitterness, tasty & smooth. . Also good served with meals if wine is not liked or wanted or something longer & thirst quenching is fancied. . When chauffeuring - Becks Blue's a good alternative.
Good beer, may buy again.
