From Carrefour. In Ikea’s pilsner glass. At lunch, with tuna. Stinky and nastily sweet. Dont repeat. Ever. Its fruit versions are much more drinkable

500 ml can. Golden color, white head. Sweet, grainy aroma. Fairly watery flavor with malts. Somewhat sweet finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Doesn't offend, but doesn't please either.

MarkoNm (1739) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a clear golden color. No real head on top of it, small white coevr that immediately dissipates. Aroma is mild, malty with wet paper notes - typical for this macro non-alcos. Taste is similar. Watery, sweet, malty. Not that nice.

330 ml. can Bavaria Premium Original 0.0 % next to 500 ml. can Bavaria Premium Pilsner 5.0 %. Both purchased @ Carrefour. BBF 12-2015 (first one). BBF 03-2015 (second one). Appearance is pretty much identical. Clear heavily sparkling golden, 5.0 % one is maybe a small touch hazier, both are very light colored & crystal-clear. Artificial looking egg-white chemical head, huge at first, collapses very quickly. NA version smells quite unpleasant, huge paper, hugely chemical, insecticide, something hugely revolting oily, industrial oil, motor oil,…. 5.0 % version’s smell is seemingly almost enjoyable next to it. Light phenolic, big grain alcohol, juniper berries, industrial & phenolic smelling. 5.0 % version’s taste is watery phenolic grain alcohol, chemical, industrial, harsh, juniper berries, light floral, harsh & industrial. NA version is surprisingly not too different, obv. less phenolic & grain alcohol but it mimics the flavor profile oddly well in a strange oily kind of way, there is even an odd juniper berry, watery, chemical aftertaste, phenolically-like,… Lightly papery. The 5.0 % is a bit watery, feels like industrial strength swill diluted. Which it probably is. The NA version is very watery but slightly more enjoyable lacking the industrial punch. Neither of them are very enjoyable. If you like the alcoholic one & you are hunkering for a NA version, this one does a very decent job.

TedE (545) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Sweet Weet-bix nose. Pale yellow beer with thin head receding to film. A few bubbles. Watery body, more Weet-bix then a tiny bit of hop bitterness. If you’re really thirsty and the weather is really hot, this will do the job. Otherwise, too sweet!

MarcoDL (2963) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Can. Golden color. Aroma of sweet maltose and grain. Taste is very sweet, with artificial grain and a little iron. Not very good, but quite decent for a non alcohol beer.

labeerinthum (76) - ITALY - JUL 2, 2015
Bottiglia. Schiuma cremosa, frizzantezza normale, intensità olfattiva normale, persistenza olfattiva corta, amaro percettibile. Intensità gustativa leggera e persistenza gustativa corta. Per quanto si tenti di avvicinarsi al sapore della birra, si sente che manca quel qualcosa che differenzia la vera birra dalle imitazioni. E’ quasi un sapore "storpiato" di birra.

500ml can. Clear golden color. Small size, thick beige head, stays. Sweet, vegetables, morning cereals, damp herbal notes in aroma. Sweet, buttery, bready, boiled carrot in taste. Boiled carrot and something herbal in aftertaste. Soft carbonation.

Pinball (11529) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
can from kvickly. clear very pale yellow, large white head. aroma of cereral and a little malts. Flavor is quite mild, grains, faint oatmeal cereral like sweetness, a little bit of bitter euro hoppy balance. Does not taste much like beer, but is so close to water that it is quite refreshing nevertheless.
