Clear golden yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is malty alcoholfree beer. Taste is bit sparkling, somewhat high carbonate. Short malty aftertaste. (Velp 201212)

Martinus (2782) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2012
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. Iím convinced that in the near future Bavaria will brew a beer you canít quite notice it is completely NA. Unfortunately, this is not this beer.
(From 33cL bottle @ home)

DutchDrebus (3956) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
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 thereís 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 itís not completely flat. Iíd say itís a fairly nice product and itís better then most other alcohol free pilseners. In case of having to be the designated driver, this should get you through the evening.

Douberd (2168) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Another 0.0 beer from Bavaria, after the lemon, the wit, the rose, now we have the Gold. Poured into a lager glass. Colour is golden yellow, maybe a little paler than the usual pilsners and lagers. Head is very thin, only half a finger, froathy, white in colour, with very little retention and lacings. Minimal activity in the glass. Aroma is quite malty but with some citrus notes as well. Pleasant. A taste full of malts and corn cereal on the finish, along with a slight lemon twist. Very thin body and a hell of a carbonation. Not bad aroma or taste, but the mouthfeel ruins it all, even for a non alcoholic beer.

Benzai (8068) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2012
Sampled from a small tasting can. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is surprisingly pretty fruity. Taste also has that fruityness and some bitter. This is weird, surprisingly good actually. Way better than expected.

Countbeer (4369) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2012
Can: Medium to smaller sized white head which changes awfully quick into a broken airy floathing pieces of lacing on top of a clear yellow colored beer. The smell is not that bad, for once actually a good smelling 0% alc beer from Bavaria: some hops, even a touch of citrus and something grapefruit ish, some honey, malts, sweeter grains, hint of oatmeal, pretty crispy and overall (I have to admit) a good smelling (0%alc) beer. Taste loads of oatmeal, corn, malts, soap, light bitter (but than soapy bitter), hint of cookies, plants (sharpness), some lightly sharper/stingy herbs and a hint of honey. Towards the aftertaste the taste seems to lightly evolve itself to a more grainy citrus and bitter aftertaste, which I think is pretty decent. The aftertaste even slightly (seriously slightly) reminds me of an IPA or something hoppy, but again just a slight hint. Low carbo, harder mouthfeel with a soft edge, thin and low body and a watery texture. I think the smell is good, aftertaste is a bit thin, but still quite ok. The taste itself is not that good and itís a bit of a thin beer overall.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 4, 2012
So how does this compare to the íoriginalí? Pours the same golden clear body with frothy and lasting white head. Aroma still has some grainy sweetness but also a citric smell. But I think itís not the hop but rather the addd íaromaí ingredient. Taste has also a citric, cleaning detergent feel and feel thinner and more artificial than the original. Well, this is a clear loser! Really bad although not because of the sweetness for a change. (33cl bottle)

Quinten (1040) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2012
33cl bottle at an Deen supermarkt 50% off, some grapefruits and other bitter hints and a lot of alc-free flavor.
