3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,3 literfles @home. Een prima alcoholvrijbier. Het heeft een beetje weg van een IPA.

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!

Aroma heeft een lichte hint van Citrushop. Licht bitter, licht zoet. Goed voor een alcoholvrij bier.

33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a small to medium white head. Light to medium body. Nice bitterness with some sweetness. This is quite a nice NA beer, has quite a good body with great bitterness.

Not bad for a 0%. Most of them are quite sweet this one is nicely bitter. Body is thin. Nice refreshing drink for when you don’t want alcohol.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl can from Dirk III
Smell is decent .
Pale color. Sweet, hoppy taste, Metal-like after taste.Not a strong body. Way to Watery. Kinda reminds me of Jupiler Force (especialy the "Zesty kind"). Only worse.
Its not bad, but meh...

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.
