Is very mild in character but a bit darker in color. So even with less alcohol you can still have a very satisfying beer!

Clear yellow-orange colour, fine head, almost non aroma. Taste likes soda and is very watery with no body and aftertaste.

Pretty strange non alc. Very malty in a german malz kind of way. Rough malty sweet taste. Quite tense in a way and not very refreshing.

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Can. Head was spare to small with a white slightly frothy sparkle. Spare lacing. Clear slightly sparkling body. Color was pale yellow. Aroma was light hay, straw, grass and cardboard. Light bodied with a thin texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with light notes of bitterness. Short finish.

I don’t have anything good to tell about this beer. Beer needs AT LEAST 4% alcohol. How can anyone drink this pile of shit? Yuck.

Bottle at home. Very poor, they all are. It has a bit of a rotten taste to it. The hops and malt just overpower the water. No taste to it really and certainly not "satisfying" in any manner.

Sweet wort-juice in both taste and aroma. Watery palate. Not as bad as expected, but there is something missing :-) Looks good though.

Bottled. I ordered this imaging I was getting a mal liquor. Imagine how I laughed when I realised it was only 0.5% alcohol!! Actually though it’s not too bad. A copper coloured beer with no head although conversely there’s a little lacing. The aroma is quite thin but there’s a little sweet malt and a little straw character. The taste is quite pleasantly sweet and malty with none of the eggy notes often found in this type of beer. Quite drinkable.

Piss poor "beer". The most impressive about this beer is that they have taken a normal Heineken and somehow managed to make it worse!

Beer no.3 of my trip to Ljubljana.
0.33l can. It poured a pale golden colour and a big thick white head. Nice for a n/a. Tons of... not lacing, chunky leftovers of the head clinging to the edges of the glass. The nose was only sickly sweet n/a malt. Surprise surprise.... Empty and watery taste with that same nasty malt and nothing edge. It managed to be sharp and prickly as it went down. Some extremely weak hop residue in the aftertaste. Not nice.
