"Becker's. It's German for Beer." Wait a minute, perhaps I'm remembering the ad campaign for Beck's instead. Anyway, this Becker's Lager is really yeasty in a pleasant way. It's got considerable malt and is slightly sweet. Has some of the weirdness of a Soviet-era Zhiguly lager. Very enjoyable!

Somehow arrived un-skunked in it's green bottle. Honestly, that would have at least added something to it - it had some mellow bready malts, but that's all - thin, bubbly and generally hop-less. Give me a pils to quench my thirst. Color was a clear dark yellow with nice sized white head.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle. Crystal clear gold body with a thick foamy white head. Skunky nose. Tasteís like skunk, cardboard, CO2, corn syrup, and adjuncts. I donít know if there are alot of adjuncts in this, but it tastes like corn syrup. Not bad, but not good by any stretch. Do yourself a favor and spend your $6.99 on something else.

Kita (1597) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 11, 2012
Canned, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with decent frothy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops and some skunky / must notes. Sweet malty taste with biscuit and corn notes, finished lightly bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Typical and pretty average lager...

Golden color, semi-skunked. Somewhat nutty(?) taste with a dry finish. On the watery side.

HammerTroll (949) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 14, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Clear yellow color, medium sized white head, fades away quickly. Aroma of water with some malt. Slightly sweet, thin body, watery. No vegetables detected. Drinkable for a cheap supermarket lager. //Eurospin Maribor

This is a rough rough beer. This is like if Rolling Rock was from Germany. Skunky smell and taste without having ACTUAL skunk smell and taste...just like Rolling Rock. Not good.

envane (568) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Deep yellow colour. Spicy, dusty aroma. This was pretty malty compared to what I was expecting with some green apple notes. Mild spicy hop finish. Maybe slightly better than Becks.

I found it better than that other pale lager, the one form Holland. Beefed up skunk smell. Tasted watery, somewhat malt assertive, generic.
