"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!

(Green bottle) My example was moderately lightstruck. Attractive straw color with a dissapating creamy head. Aroma is, like Aurelius notes, "graham crackery". Moderate carbonation somewhat covers a thin, watery body. The finish boasts hop bitterness that's subtle yet strong enough to cover the slight astingency of the malt character. Not bad, but not strongly recommended.

I opened the bottle with low expectations and after an initial moment of tastelessness this beer developed into a real class act. Minimal white head on a standard golden body. Clean, crisp aroma with light hoppy notes. Flavor is smooth and light with a nice crackle in the finish. After a few sips some malt character appeared and the beer became very pleasant, delicious even. Gives off some nice honey and fruit scents and a strong malt aroma as it develops. Overall, I think this is a good lager that deserves further exploration. I need a six pack and a few hours to work this one out.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light, malty, graham crackery aroma. Appearance dings for green bottle, lame label. Medium gold beer with persistant pithy head. Seedish, with biscuity malts -- tastes like a cross between sunflower seeds and shortbread. Loses fizz entirely too quickly, watery, with a medium, bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As expected - skunky aroma - this is a German Lager in a green bottle after all - but it dissipates and mellows. Decent white pillowy head with little lacing which disapears quickly. Saaz Hops very apparent and strong flavored. This has a bit of a bite to it - overall, not bad - typical Euro Lager.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden color with a quickly dissipating white head. Toasty malt, floral hops and hint of urine aroma. Starts with a floral sweetness which continues throughout the qauff. Finishes with a corn sugar and malt sweetness. Not my type of lager. Neither crisp not clean.

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.

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...
