33cl bottle from my local Albert Hein.
Thick white head. Clear golden pour. Heavy malty taste. Ok for a NA beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sparkling golden/yellow color with creamy industrial head. Immediate hoppy smell when pouring. Really strong smell with some flavours of lemon freshness in the backgrond. Strange bitter taste with some slight sweetness, but not the fruity sweetness, but more chemical. Not really beer!

30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Coop. Golden with a thin, quickly disappearing white head. Fruity sweet malt smell. familiair low alcohol cabbage taste with some lemon. Not as horrible as other low alcohol beers but no treat either.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden colour, firm white head. Citrus aroma, bit like hops, but somewhat weird, malts, lime/grapefruit. Sweet malty flavour, sugar, reminding of raw sugar beet, bit sickly. Quite sickly sweet finish with lime touches.
After being thoroughly impressed by the 0.0 wit (which only had a few minor flaws), this is a bit of a disappointment. I’m convinced that in the near future Bavaria will brew a beer you can’t quite notice it is completely NA. Unfortunately, this is not this beer.
(From 33cL bottle @ home)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
15 cl can @ home. Pale yellow with a decent white head. Looks like a regular pils. Smells amazingly hoppy, malts, quite fresh. Tastes malty and quite thin, but other than that there’s also a nice fresh hop flavour. Too bad the typical non-alcohol maltiness takes over most of the flavor. Could use a bit more carbo and a bit more body, but what can you expect from a zero alcohol beer. At least it’s not completely flat. I’d say it’s a fairly nice product and it’s better then most other alcohol free pilseners. In case of having to be the designated driver, this should get you through the evening.
