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.

I picked up a six pack of this from beers of the world because it was on sale. What a mistake. Beckers is about as foul as corona.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
I was really surprised to see that the initial ratings of this beer were so much more positive than mine. Apparently this beer is aiming to sucker in the drinkers who are look for Becks or maybe other green bottle German beers. Pours rich yellow with a big white head, large carbonation forming on the sides of my glass with small carbonation in the middle body. The aroma is grassy, mildly malty, not skunky. The flavor is more of the same, a combination of a cookie and a handful of grass, but still it wasn't a very nice flavor in my opinion--nowhere as clean as you would expect a good German lager. The worst part was the palate, which from the start was very flat, despite the obvious carbonation. Really, just lifeless, and it let down the beer as a whole.
