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.

Bottle. Crystal clear gold body with a thick foamy white head. Skunky nose. Taste’s like skunk, cardboard, CO2, corn syrup, and adjuncts. I don’t 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.

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.

Pours yellow in color. Not much head. Smells skunky and a little grainy. Has a little bit of a spicy cardboard flavor. Kinda of skunky and watery as well. Not a quality brew. Has a weird spicy finish that makes it drinkable. Not a really bad brew but it is pretty generic.

Call this one the bad child of the bunch. Very dissapointingly bland for a German Lager. Nothing to shout about, but still better than anything mass produced in America, as well as anything named "Buffalo Butt."

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.

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.

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.

"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!

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Golden color, semi-skunked. Somewhat nutty(?) taste with a dry finish. On the watery side.
