I donít have too many complaints with this one--last sample not skunked. Came across as a more bitter version of Heineken, with some evident hop aroma. Rather middle of the road on the whole. Not bad.

If I had to choose between Becks (the real stuff in Germany) and any beer from Andhowsyour-Bush, it might win.

Imagine my disappointment to step onto a Lufthansa plane and this was all the German beer they had. Still, in contast to the skunky Becks you get in North America, in the Snoor you can get a decent pint of fresh, if a little bit heavy, hop-accented Becks, with unclean malt notes and a little too much ícatís pissí aroma for my liking.

Skunky aroma/flavor. The funk of the skunk pervades this beer. I should have known better, buying it in a 24 oz. bottle, without the protection afforded by cardboard on a six pack. Seems more watery than water somehow. Very fizzy and might be the palest beer Iíve ever seen. Bad, even for a íeuropeaní (green bottle) lager. I didnít taste any hops, sorry; this is an american standard all the way. Pilseners have hops.

This is by far NOT "the best of what Germanís do best!" average pilsner at best

Becks is one of my staple beers that I usually have around. Itís easy to drink and doesnít really take much to enjoy ... as long as you like green beers. Itís not a great beer, but sometimes itís nice to relax and just enjoy.

With the many alternatives in the pilsner market I would keep going after spotting Becks in the supermarket aisle. Nothing special but not worth ripping apart.

They said I have to improve my ratings. Ok. The aroma of this beer is good. The appearance of this beer is good. The flavor of this beer is good. The palate of this beer is good. My overall impression is a positive one.
