2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is one of those green bottle brews that just really, really smacks you in the face w/ skunk when you open it. It dissipates pretty quickly though and leaves behind a pretty decent European style pale lager. It is pils golden w/ a long lasting head and big sheets of lace--nice looking beer, to be honest. After the skunk wafts off, it is sweet in grainy in the nose with maybe the slightest touch of grassy hops. The taste has a touch of unfermented tasting sweetness that is not the end of the world but still dristracting from what would otherwise be a pretty drinkable non-alcoholic beer. As it is, I think there are lots better options out there in this category that are cheaper or better or both. I don’t really feel this beer justifies its existence for that reason.

Bottle at Lufthansa lounge, Frankfurt Airport. What this brew lacks in flavor it certainly makes up for in water content. A complete waste of time.

edit: almost finished the beer and I’ve changed my mind. The aftertaste is pretty bad: weak champagne
12oz bottle into tall table glass - nose is skunky, grainy, and dried wild weeds. Sip adds nothing. fairly tasty and flavorful. My be my favorite N/A so far. 7/2/6/3/11 or 2.9

Bottle @ The Clarendon, Leicester. On strong antibiotics so can't have alcohol. I had this and tbh it wasn't great, but it was cold and tastes beer like.

A mediocre non alcoholic beer which however works as thirst quencher. Some metal in the taste.

Botttle@ Jamie Oliver York. Light yellow. Small head. Butterscots rules this brew. Watery. Some bitterness balance the sweetness of the diacetyl.

Flaske (med etiketten Beck’s Blue) i messa på Navion Oceania, juli-14: en helt grei drikke til middagen i et miljø hvor alkohol naturligvis ikke må forekomme. Maten var forøvrig helt upåklageoig takket være den filippinske kokken.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bouteille 330ml. Couleur jaune paille translucide, mousse blanche évanescente. Arôme de céréales, maïs?, un brin herbal. Goût similaire aux arômes. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen-faible. Très similaire à sa cousine avec alcool, mais moins bonne.

Bottle at Restaurant in Thale, Germany. Driving so I picked the non alcoholic, but this wasn’t very good at all...

Beck’s Blue in a Rugby Wetherspoons on 25th June 2014: I was driving so had to make do with this. Looks like a regular lager/pilsner, golden, clear and bright, with a fading white head. Heavy maltiness in the fairly sweet nose and taste, not unpleasant, if lacking in bitterness a little. OK for an Non-alcoholic beer.
