Is Becks beer a lager or ale?
Beck’s Lager is a world-famous International Pale Lager brewed in Bremen, Germany since 1874. It is still made to its original recipe in accordance with Germany’s reinheitsgebot law on beer purity and has become one of Germany’s most popular beers around the world.
Is Becks a lager or pilsner?
Founded by Heinrich Beck in 1873 on the banks of the river Weser in the free Hanseatic city of Bremen, Beck’s is a characterful Pilsner.
What beer is Becks similar to?
Beck’s is a German pilsner (a type of pale lager), sharp, crisp, flavorfull, and is not filling. Beck’s uses roasted hops and has a more bitter earthy flavor with much less foam. The flavor of other “light lagers” (european pilsners) may be similar, however, a pilsner is much easier to drink because, unlike most other light lager beers, a true pilsner is much less filling and has much less foam.
- Pilsner beers are noted for “drinkability”.
- Beck’s can be consumed with a large meal and then consumed afterwards as well.
- I believe this is why many non beer drinkers prefer and enjoy Beck’s and almost no other beer.
- Click here for a list of “German style pilsners” as well as a list of the other types of similar beers and what makes them different Light lagers such as Heinekin, Stella, Amstel, etc,
are “European pilsner” beers typically labeled as lager whereas a German pilsner beer is typically labeled “pilsner” or “pils”. Heineken does produce a true pilsner variety but it is not officially distributed or available within the United States. Heineken lager is distributed and sold throughout North America and has much more body and is more filling as one would expect from a light lager or “european pilsner”.
Sam Adams Gold pilsner is described as having “great body”. This is not a characteristic of most German pilsners that are sharp and light bodied. This beeradvocate post goes on to say that “This is one of those beers to give to a Bud drinker”, definitely not something most people would say of Beck’s.
Similar beers include: Baltika #7 Export has a clean crisp light hoppy flavor and is less filling than Heinekin. St Pauli Girl pilsner (not to be confused with St Pauli Girl lager) is brewed for export only at the Beck’s brewery in Bremen Germany. Tsingtao, a Chinese brewed German pilsner.
- Tsingtao is a product of the German occupation of Qingdao from the late 1800s until 1914.
- Not quite a flavorful as Beck’s because the original recipe has changed but still a German pilsner in many aspects.
- Tsingtao is widely available at many Asian restaurants throughout North America and is a much better alternative or substitute for Beck’s than Heinekin or Stella.
Löwenbräu produces Beck’s under licence for southern Germany and other parts of europe and is known for similar flavor (but then again, so is Heineken). Also, here is another list of German Pilsners. Update: If you’re going to go the way of sam adams, at least get the right kind of beer and not some awful american lager.
- Sam Adams makes a Noble Pils.
- Noble hops are the type of hops German pilsners are distinct for, strong hops flavor.
- Even better is Sixpoint crisp,
- Strong hops flavor, easy to drink, and almost no hint of barley.
- More fruty than Beck’s.
- Finally, Pilsner Urquell has a bit more foam than I would like from a German beer (probably because it’s not German) but still did not weigh heavy on my stomach and easy to drink as well.
Not quite as much flavor but I did not try the bottle. This one is a traditional pils. EDIT: I tried another German beer at the bar recently ” Weihenstephaner original”, brewed at the world’s oldest brewery in Germany and brewed according to the German purity law of 1516.
- Sure enough, I didn’t have to burp once.
- Drank a full pint glass and wasn’t bloated one bit.
- Finally, the taste was the same familiar strong, pungent, and bitter hoppy taste I’ve grown so fond of from drinking German Beck’s over the years and yes it comes in a very dark brown bottle.
- The bitterness is ranked at 21.
They also make a pils with a bitterness of 32. I feel it should be added that beer brewed in Germany often conforms to the Reinheitsgebot or the German purity law of 1516. This gives German beer the crisp fresh taste and this is also why the foam doesn’t linger and make you feel bloated.
Is Becks like Heineken?
Furthermore, the bitterness in most of Becks’ beers come from the use of darker malts, while the majority of the bitterness in Heineken comes from the use of (pellet) hops. This makes the bitterness in Becks tend towards roastier flavors, and the bitterness in Heineken to tend to be more herbaceous or floral.

It should not be labelled as Becks.
The original 140 year old recipe lager isn’t used and exported to supermarkets here anymore since the original brewers were bought out by the giant “drinks manufacturer” AB InBev. They hark on that they still abide by The German Purity Law, but that’s not the only reason Becks USED to be a good lager: Becks is a classic Premium German lager steeped in history and brewed by possibly the greatest lager brewing country in the world for around 130 years.
A clean, not full-bodied lager but with a nicely noticeable aftertaste of hops and great tasting barley, finished off with a 5% ABV to get the palette fresh again for the next cool gulp. A very subtle, yet complex aftertaste if served at just the right temperature, it would shine through with all the best qualities and poise of a classic German lager.
- The original brew from Bremen was once a hard-to-beat lager to sup from an ice cold bottle on a hot day, or enjoy as a palette cleanser with a good curry.
- For the same kind of age -old classic lager, only Lowenbrau original blue label refreshes in the same way as original Becks did.
- Unfortunately, to my knowledge the original drink is no longer available in UK outlets, and the classic German legend has disappeared from the shelves, replaced by a 4 or 4.8% ABV pretend version of the brew.
Since AB InBev acquired Becks, they have taken the brewing outside of it’s homeland and messed about with the classic recipe endlessly by lowering the ABV to 4.8%, introduced Beck Vier (4%), and now seem to be labelling 4% Becks as just simply Becks in the UK.
All in the cause to save Duty Tax and save more money for themselves and/or appease the ever-greedy supermarkets. Becks (4%) on sale now is not original Becks, although it pretends to be (Becks Vier 4% seems to be phasing out). Becks 4% (and 4.8%) has completely lost it’s original taste, probably due to not using the same ingredients sourced by the original brewery in Germany, and not having the skills, equipment, nor centuries of knowledge in lager brewing.
We all know the 4 ingredients, and changing only 1 of these by source only can change the taste of a delicately balanced lager like this. Changing the source of all 4 ingredients which has probably happened in the US, and altering the brewing process has just wrecked this once great lager completely.
I understand that they still brew original Becks in Bremen, but the UK doesn’t seem to be on the supply list. Definitely not in UK supermarkets. Becks lager (4% ABV) as of 2020 is now nothing more than a brand name in the UK. A very poor lager with no good qualities, and is best served down the drain. It has really nasty notes that unleash themselves up your nose if the beer is anything but frozen solid.
All own-brand supermarket lagers/pilsners brewed in Germany beat this beer hands down. Basically, it’s another American attempt at a German lager, which we all know they can’t do. Ruined for profit! With great sadness, Becks “lager” 4.8% or 4% ABV, is just a messily odd-tasting and unpleasant lager that doesn’t know what kind of brew it is, with a bitter after taste.

- Lacing is not left.
- Body is a clear golden straw,
- Aroma is light and mediocre.
- Certainly not a true German pils, but better than most ABInbev products here in the states.
- Doughy with a slight hint of bread yeast.
- Very low, almost nonexistent herbal, earthy, and skunky hops.
- Taste is almost lighter than the aroma.
For a German beer this would be considered light, but this isn’t a watery American ligjt beer quite yet. Still MHL is more flavorful, but I will say the malt tastes more natural than most AALs. Sweet but crisp, zero bitterness. Feel is again very light, with a slight astringency.

Do Germans drink Becks?
Introduction Have you ever tasted the beer Becks? The beer is poured golden clear with a fluffy white foam on top with a sweet, refreshing taste. Becks is currently the most popular German beer in the world, Becks beer has been created from the same ingredients for over 140 years.

The beer doesn’t have any additives added to it as it’s only allowed to be brewed in Germany with the 4 main ingredients in beer. The beer has an alcohol volume of 5% and only 143 calories per 12 fluid oz.
Becks was created by Brauerei Beck & Co when it was first established in 1873 in Bremen, Germany. The beer was only being sold in Germany. The beer slowly became one of the popular German beers and became the most purchased over the years. In 2012 the beer made its way to America and started being brewed in St.
Louis, Missouri. The beer is currently being sold to nearly 100 different countries including the United Kingdom, France, Italy and China etc. Origins Becks beer was created by Luder Rutenberg, Luder never grew up in the beer business, his father was an architect and a home builder, and when he grew up he followed in his fathers tracks.
Luder Rutenberg was an architect and built many 1-2 story homes in the streets of Breman, Luder ran into some issues with not being allowed to build these big homes in his area he decided to partner up with his sister and brother to create Runge Brewery. Luder Rutenberg Where did the name Becks come from? The name of the beer was originally going to be called Rutenberg beer until Luder Rutenberg and other brewers thought the name would have been too much of a mouthful so they decided to go with Heinrich Beck’s last name.
- When the brewery first opened in 1973, the beer Becks was only distributed to places in Germany.
- The beer started gaining a lot of popularity for its refreshing taste and started gradually becoming the best beer in all of Germany, with the rising of the sales, the brewery started gaining a lot of recognition from other brewery companies.
In 2001 the brewery was purchased by the beer company InterBrew, they agreed to buy Brauerei Beck & Co for 1.8 Billion euros which was nearly 3million dollars at the time. History behind Anheuser-Busch InBev Den Hoorns, the original founder of first beer was created in Leuven, Belgium in 1366, The brewery used to be a tavern for the hunters who would come in to relax and enjoy a beer after a long day’s work.
- In 1717 the brewery was purchased by professional brewer Sebastian Artois.
- Sebastian later changed the name to Brouwerij Artois.
- Later down the road in 1987 Artois Brewery combined with another Belgian Brewery called Piedboeuf, and this was when the name changed to InterBrew.
- Then I’m 2004 Interbrew merged with Ambev to later be called Inbev, InBev later merged with the popular company Anheuser-Busch in 2008 and the name is now Anheuser-Busch InBev, InBev is one of the largest conglomerates in the world, the company owns over 200 different beer brands, some popular brands that you probably heard of are Budweiser, Stella Artois, Busch, Michelob and Corona YouTube.

- People around the country came together to come after the company for making them believe that the beer was created/imported from Germany.
- The label was placed on the bottom of the case stating that the beer was made in the states, but the court didn’t believe that was enough.
- Up to 50$ dollars was given back to customers who had bought becks from a retail outlet with their receipt, and up to 20$ for customers without.
This issue of labeling cost Anheuser-Busch 20 million dollars. Milestones

Brewing Science and Industrialization Beck beer started into the brewery business later than most popular beer brands, dealing with trying to produce a lot of beer but not having the place to store it due to the lack of brown bottles during the war era, Beck’s started off with brown bottles but ;ater decided to start selling the beer through green bottles.
During this time Beck was one of the only beers to be in a different bottling, but with the rise to greatness and the sales they were previously making, the green bottles would only do them good. The increase of marketing due to the bottles catching new people’s eyes and taking a sip of that refreshing taste got people hooked.
The beer was transported all around the work to marketers after Anheuser-Busch purchased Becks in 2013 before they were doing international trades with other countries but no info was provided for how. Beer Style Beck’s is a classic European lager beer with a rich foamy head and golden colour, Beck’s beer was created in Germany so therefore in the process of becoming one of the top beers, they had to follow more strict guidelines for brewing legally than in some other parts of the world, due to the purity law of 1516.
This only allows beers to be brewed with the 4 most common ingredients used. No additives in the beer to give it extra flavouring or added colors to change the look of the beer. With following the law of creating beer, Beck’s was brewed with only the top malt barley, the freshest water, hand-selected hops that come from the Bavarian Hallertau region, and Beck’s exclusive yeast which has been cultured for many generations.
The beer is brewed at low temperatures to produce the dry beer which creates a thinner drink and gives it that crisp mouthfeel. WWI & WWII Era During the WWII Era, Beck’s brewery was destroyed and causing the production of the beer to cease for years. Eitel-Friedrich Kantrat earned Beck’s beer after his 225 days patrol and achievements. Consolidation As we all know now after the previous readings, Luder Rutenberg and Heinrich Beck were the main people involved in the original start of Becks. This brewed beer was created and distributed to mainly only other places in Germany, But this all changed when InBev took over Becks.
- While keeping the beer alive, and gaining a lot of attention for their popular German drink.
- They managed to sell Brauerei Beck & Co for $3million USD.
- They sold to the larger company Interbrew which later merged with one of the biggest beer distributors around the world to create InBev.
- InBev managed to transport the beer to over 100 different countries and even created their own location in St.
Louis to craft Becks. To keep the legacy of the beer from dying down, they managed to sell Brauerei Beck & Co for $3million USD. They sold to the larger company Interbrew which later merged with one of the biggest beer distributors around the world to create InBev.
- With the publicity, work, and effort InBev put into Becks, The company really helped the beer achieve the honors of being the most popular German beer around the world.
- Marketing and Branding The branding Becks made a debut appearance for itself in 1984, an advertising campaign published in Germany.
- The campaign was taken on the German sailing ship “Alexander Von Humboldt” Beck’s invested in new green sails for the ship, all the people’s eyes grew attracted to the matching bottle to the green sails, with the commercial showing the audience the concept of freedom, family and friendship and exploring the world.
This campaign lasted until 2007 but throughout those years this gained Becks alot of attention and worked very well for them. A decade later, Becks launched its new campaign “Only you make it legendary” The concept behind this one was that it goes on about the freedom you have to decide and that you are the only one that can make your moments legendary. This is the Alexander Von Humboldt Ship with its fresh bright green sails. Citation Encyclopedia.com. (n.d.). Brauerei Beck Co. Encyclopedia.com.

Pilsners are often enjoyed on their own or with food such as grilled meats and salads. Why are lagers so much more popular than ales? Lagers are the most popular type of beer in the world for a variety of reasons. First, lagers tend to be lighter and crisper than ales, which makes them more refreshing and easier to drink.
Many people feel like the intense flavours of ale are a bit too much when going out for a few drinks with friends, combine that with our UK pub culture and session drinking, and you can see just why people opt for the easy choice. This is especially true when compared to heavier ales. Lagers also have a longer shelf life than ales because they are fermented at cooler temperatures and use different types of yeast.
Why is beer called ale?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A glass of real ale from an English pub Ale is a type of beer brewed using a warm fermentation method, resulting in a sweet, full-bodied and fruity taste. Historically, the term referred to a drink brewed without hops, As with most beers, ale typically has a bittering agent to balance the malt and act as a preservative,
Which beers are ales or lagers?
An ale and a lager? – Experientially, the difference between a lager and an ale can be explained with brands of beer everybody knows : lagers are the crisp, thirst-quenching yellow beers like Budweiser and the like; ales are richer/more full-flavored beers that include pale ales (like Sierra Nevada) and everything else that isn’t golden and clear (including Guinness, stouts, IPAs, and beers that nerdy college guys tend to prefer).
While there are many, many variables in beer making — including the kind of grains the beer is based on (Budweiser has rice in it!) and the quantity and kind of hops (craft beers, mostly ales, favor “fruity” hops that tend often have a hint of weed flavor to them), the functional difference between the two categories is in the kind of yeast used to make them.
Ales are made with top-fermenting yeasts that work at warmish temperatures; lagers are made with bottom-fermenting yeasts that need the liquid they’re fermenting to be cold and still for a longish time. That’s why lagers are called lagers — it comes from the German word ” lagern,” which means “to store.” Lagers were originally fermented in caves in cold months and drunk in the spring, when the weather warmed up and the yeast was done with its job.
The advent of refrigeration and the general thirst-quenching quality of lagers have made them the dominant global style of beer. The reason craft breweries almost exclusively produce ales is because the time and storage requirements to make quality lagers is a much bigger cash suck than ales, which can be fermented, hopped, and canned in just a few weeks.
