“Another one gone faulty!”

Written on: 05/01/2015 by Fitzsimmons397 (1 review written)

Very disappointed in this British brewed rubbish after enjoying the German brewed version for several years. I doubt it will be any use in a slug trap as it is so weak and flavourless… Read Full Review

“Beck's in England isn't German beer”

Written on: 03/01/2015 by bluebe11 (1 review written)

Becks now has a "German brewing heritage" statement on the neck, it has been brewed in England (Luton?) for some years, since the Whitbread/Interbrew/Inbev combine took over many of the premium European names. Don't be fooled, the German's haven't ever brewed beer in Luton to my knowledge. It is now indistinguishable in taste from the other factory lagers like Fosters, Stella, Carling; the list is long. Inbev could come clean (and cut costs) by having one standard Eurobeer and making it… Read Full Review

“Becks now brewed in th UK”

Written on: 03/01/2015 by Trevorol53 (1 review written)

Bought 80 bottles of Becks for Xmas and new year. Imagine my disgust when I discovered that it's now brewed in the UK. Is there any 'proper' continental beers out there. Becks was a cracking drink but now its rubbish… Read Full Review

“British Becks?”

Written on: 31/12/2014

Just another lager from a UK chemical works. No distinct flavour. Won't be buying any more. An object lesson in how to destroy a brand… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 29/12/2014 by Kaseya98 (1 review written)

When I bought it I thought I was buying the real thing; something I could rely on, namely proper German lager. It all seemed genuine. The bottle colour and shape and the label seemed real enough - the front label even mentioned Germany and a German brewing medal. When I got my Beck's home I was upset to find I had been conned. I discovered, hidden on the back of the bottle in the smallest possible writing, that this lager was brewed in the UK, masquerading as German when it wasn't at all… Read Full Review

“Tastes awful now that it is made in the UK.”

Written on: 04/12/2014 by PresidentLinton (1 review written)

It seems like Heineken is the only choice now for an imported beer, unless you pay for something in a premium bottle. Corporate greed is probably behind the move from Germany and hopefully sales will plummet to punish the decision… Read Full Review

“Not any more”

Written on: 20/10/2014 by Carter431 (1 review written)

Well, what happened to the "only brewed in Germany" tag? Iknew there was something different about my Becks a couple of months ago, but could not quite put my finger on it. Then I realised, that they had started brewing it in the UK. Serious mistake, it does not taste the same, and I am now looking for another beer to drink in protest. But why do they still brew the non-alcoholic one in Germany?… Read Full Review

“Beck's disaster”

Couldn't understand what was wrong with a bottle of this. Then I read the label. Usually an unexciting but reliable standard German beer. Now an awful UK copy. Avoid… Read Full Review

Shocked to taste what I thought was Becks, bring back Bremmen brewed beer. Why have InBev done this? No longer brewed in Germany and tastes rubbish. Not going to buy any In Bev drinks until Imported Becks returns… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/08/2014 by 178Spencer (1 review written)

Since Becks has been brewed in Luton UK it has turned into a disgusting gassy slop, why don't you rip off big brewers just leave imported beers alone. German Becks was perfect before , now it is undrinkable… Read Full Review

“Becks No longer brewed in Germany!”

Written on: 13/05/2014 by AndrewHancock (1 review written)

Cases of Becks have been my only weekly alcoholic supermarket purchase for the last 5 years,the taste, the quality and the price.Never feel jaded the next day,not a wife beater,like Stella or Kronenburg, just perfect. Bought a 20 pack from Asda last weekend, cracked open the first bottle and instantly thought that tastes odd,had another couple same feeling,really disturbed.Looked for any obvious differences,and there it was, no longer IMPORTED printed on the bottle,but BREWED WITH GERMAN… Read Full Review

Birchwoodbob's Response to AndrewHancock's Review

Written on: 14/09/2014

Couldn't agree more! My local Sainsbury's, (other stores available), no longer stocks the bottles with "Imported" on the neck label. I've drunk Becks since I was stationed in Germany with the RAF in 1966 and at other postings abroad. No longer! Has anyone noticed that the price remains the same no matter where it was brewed. I don't expect to pay a premium price for Home brewed lager.

“The taste of Germany”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by Sabot3rtr (1 review written)

First of all i buy the .66ltr bottle, it clearly states brewed in the UK, it also says brewed after the German purity laws 1516 that means only natural ingredients are used as would have been available in 1516. Keep beer cool in the fridge then on opening the cap take a second to sniff the sweet beer smell of a treat to come, pour the first part into a beer mug then smell the lovely full smell of the poured product, nothing dodgy no chemicals just the full natural great beer ( lager) smell… Read Full Review

Suewal's Comment

Written on: 19/04/2014

I absolutely agree Angela. I've been drinking becks for years, but suddenly I've started to bloat. I was wondering why when I saw that it is now brewed in Luton. That also explains the change in taste. I won't be buying it again unless they start brewing it in Germany.
Don't know if it's relevant, but do you remember how popular Holstein Pils used to be? it was everywhere and then they started making it here and it was disgusting. They killed it dead almost overnight.

“It's not from Bremen”

Written on: 13/12/2013

The "Beck's" brewed in St.Louis, MO, USA does not even begin to taste like the original "Bremen" beer. This "fake" German beer should go the way of the Miller-brewed Loenbrau. That is NO LONGER PRODUCED!! You have fooled me once into paying an import price for a poor domestic imitation. But you will NEVER fool me again! Shame on you for "money-grubbing" and desecrating a previously respected brand… Read Full Review

“I Like It”

Written on: 18/06/2013 by SecundaNisbet355 (6 reviews written)

I like beck's, it has full body flavor, not a watery flavor, when you drink it you can really taste the ingredients, which makes the all experience more interesting. Also not been so strong in alcohol makes it a pleasant drink that doesn't get you drunk if drunk in moderate quantities… Read Full Review

“I'll be BECK'S!”

Written on: 04/06/2013 by breza (3 reviews written)

Just fine. Sometimes inconsistent (blame the local brewery), with very robust "body". Good taste, just slides down the throat. Great from the tap. Ideal winter beer, maybe it's on the heavy side for the summer (alcohol is not that high, but the feeling of "weight" is present)… Read Full Review

“German engineering in a bottle!”

Written on: 23/10/2012 by Wazza2 (4 reviews written)

For the past couple of years I've made sure I always have a few Becks in the fridge for a tough day. I've always enjoyed it, but for the past few years it seems like the price has actually dropped (in Sainsbury's a couple of months ago I managed to get a 20 bottle pack for about £8!). The taste has always been that lovely crisp lager - German engineering in a bottle! All in all it's a absolute winner and I don't think I could be bothered with anything else now. Yum!!!… Read Full Review

“Beck's Brewed by Budweiser in Van Nuys??”

Written on: 01/08/2012

I recently purchased a twelve pack of Beck's from a well known So. CA supermarket. I thought I was buying Beck's brewed in Germany. I opened a bottle expecting the refreshing and delicious German beer and to my surprise found something much different. I checked the bottle's label. It did not indicate "Imported from Germany", but rather brewed by Budwiser - no doubt the Van Nuys brewery, but it the label did not state which brewery. THIS IS NOT BECK'S BEER FROM GERMANY!! It is far from… Read Full Review
