COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What this brew lacks in alcohol it certainly makes up for in flavor. This malt beverage (less than 0.5% alcohol by volume) boasts a full, rich, thick head, light amber color and balanced bitterness.

Really, not so bad for a low alcohol beer. I would say the main problem is the palate. The beer is very thin ! Still, itís ok for hot summer days.

Bottle. Clear golden, small whitish head. Neutral aroma, not much here. A bit stuffy in taste and the refreshing part isnít to be found.

Jow (2322) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle at home while watching kid so good time for alcohol free. One of the best things about this beer is it smells like cat piss so for us not fortunate enough not to own a cat we get to reap some of benefits right there. Pale golden beer with white foamy head. Tastes of cabbage, cardboard, and cut grass that got stuck in lawnmower blade and picked up some grease. Dry finish thin palate.

edsspoon (571) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle - golden with a sparse, fizzy white head. Aroma of lager malt and metal. Taste is of apple, a little malt, hints of grass and citrus with a light bitter end. Light body, medium carbonation. No worse than regular Becks.

gegwilson (1534) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle in the Moon, Billingham. Pours straw with a rapidly fading head. Metallic, citrus and hay notes in there. Very thin as expected. Not too much worse than normal Becks. Still pretty terrible though.

Aroma of skunk. NOT skunky. Smells like an actual skunk. If youíre dog has ever been skunked you know what I mean. If you havenít experienced that youíre lucky. Body is a crystal clear gold. Small foam ring of a head. Flavor is passable. A strange sweetness lingers on the palate too long for its own good. More bitter and corny than many of the alcohol free beers Iíve had. Erdinger is light years ahead of this.

Tmoney99 (11224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle share. Poured clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light wet grass aroma. Light body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium acidic flavor with a light acidic finish of short duration. Poor even for style.

12oz bottle, thanks to chudwick for grabbing this for me. It has a $1.00 sticker slapped on the back, which is the same kind that Iíve seen a hundred times on the beers that Party Source puts on close-out... So I suspect that this NA beer is old and past itís prime.. Clear golden color, with some fine particles suspended in the body. Good thin white head, leaving decent thicker lace. Looks solid enough if you never saw the bottle or label.. Nose is just incredible, and not in a good way... It smells exactly like burnt popcorn to me. Ugh, flavor if awful. Very biting, rough, and spicy. Itís like the beer is attacking my mouth. Definitely seems like a diacetyl thing happening here, kind of buttery, but also lots of rough dirty off-flavors. Beneath the awfulness there is moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter, and just something worse than medicine all around. One of the worst beers Iíve ever had. Why oh why did I ask chudwick for some of his leftover NAs? I guess it was so the ticker in me could know just how bad beer can be. This is punishment. Light to medium body, kind of slick, half-drying in the finish. Kind of strange how my palate is both dry and slick with this, itís like my mouth is trying to recoil from the beer. Just absolutely completely awful. I felt compelled to apologize to tmoney99 and alexsdad06 for sharing this one.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm, thanks? Pours a clear pale yellow with a fleeting white film. The aroma leaps from the bottle (not in a good way) with grainy, tart, cat piss, just not inviting. The flavor is somehow slightly less offensive in that it loses some of the moldy, tart, grainy, cat piss and just focuses on sweet grainy malt. I wish I just said no.

Onslow (1219) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with creamy white head - surprisingly good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grain and grass. Taste is surprisingly good - sweet full bodied light malt at the start with a pilsener-ish finish at the end. A little too sweet in the malt, but tha tis a quibble. The lack of alcohol does leave this a little flat tasting an non-aromatic but thatís to be expected. Overall - for an N/A itís excellent and holds its own flavor-wise.

AtronSeige (749) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 16, 2014
Aroma: Medium-high grainy. Appearance: Body: Brilliant light yellow. Head: Small, white. Good retention Flavour: Medium-high bitterness. Crisp. Dry finish with slight slick feel. Light grainy. No hop flavours. Mouthfeel: Medium-body. High, creamy carbonation. Slight slick in finish. Overall: No hops on aroma, too much malt. Can do with a bit of hops in the flavour. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja! 23. Specialty Beer 2A. German Pilsner (Pils)
