1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Clear, yellow-golden body with a white head. The nose is very grainy and wort-like, and slightly fruity. The flavor has the same grainy and worty elements, finishing with some bitterness and citrusy fruitiness. Quite sweet on the palate. Thin, as expected. A decent N/A beer, but that’s it. (070813)

330 ml bottle. Golden body with a decent white head. Aroma has some malt and a hint of hops. Flavor is vague malty, corn and fruit acid. Quite refreshing and decent taste for a non-alcoholic pilsner.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 330 ml bottle. Very pale golden colour, decent head. Relatively strong sweetish aroma of wort with some of the "boiled" notes of your typical n/a beer (over-boiled vegetables, grit), but I’ve smelled them worse - there are also some fruity notes. The flavour is slightly wheaty, light bodied of course, but there are also some hops in the finish. Not good, but I’ve had worse.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. Light golden colour. Lots of carbonation creates a tall white head. Creamy head. Clean grainy aroma with a little floral hops, but just a little. Refreshing, but perhaps a little too sharp, grainy flavours and a sharp hoppy bite. Light-bodied and somewhat lacking flavourwise, especially on the malts. The aftertaste is longlasting and crisp with hop bitterness. Alright for a non-alcohol beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle. Straw coloured body. Long-lived white foam. Very cardboard aroma mixed with malt which continues into the flavour. Some notes of wheat and wort. Vague hoppy hints in the background. Watery palate and thin bodied (15.05.2007).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium coarse white head. Yellow body. Aroma is straw and earth with notes of grass and some rubber. Taste is hoppy straw and grass, quite bitter. Chalky mouthfeel, somewhat empty. Watery aftertaste with notes of corn. Quite good. Not the best alcohol-free, but not at all bad, either. The hops really make the beer. (0.33l bottle.)

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
One finger white head. Clear straw/yellow color. Low aroma level. The taste is quite crisp, and fortunately without the sticky sweetness found in most of the Norwegian n/a’s. Notes of bitttering hops as well. Dry, slight bitter end. Drink and drive!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
There are quite a few lagers with alcohol on the Norwegian market that are worse than this. ( A back-handed compliment, perhaps!)
Refreshing wheat malt, some bitterness, but not quite enough. There is an edge of sweetness adn a little medical flavour that’s not too good, otherwise this is a decent alternative for drivers and others whi have to abstain.
