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.

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2009
Thisted tasting. Courtesy of Fonefan. It is golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma is terrible, a combination of sour cooked cabbage and fox urine. The flavour has sweetness and the same notes as the aroma.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 22, 2008
330ml bottle (K Market)
Beyond anaemic - gnats’ piss. Dry dusty version of the usual cornflake aroma. Lively carbonation, very thin body. Grassy metallic hops, some lemon, lots of dry dusty cornflakes. Cornflakes picked up from the corner of your kitchen floor when you finally get round to sweeping the floor. Nasty metallic finish. Drivers - don’t drink this, drink anything else instead.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle in Vail. Clear, light golden appearance with a small white head. Dull straw, hay, pale malty aroma. Grainy, straw, barn hay flavor. Bleh bleh bleh. Fuck me, they brought me the non-alcoholic version. Fuck me. Fuck me.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle... Clear, light yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is mostly sorghum and herbal hops with a faint note of skunk. The flavor is bland, but decently bittered for an n/a. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Astringent, moderately bitter finish. Went well enough with my plate of pork and guava gravy. Most importantly, it didn’t hinder my driving afterwards. Now that I’m home, it’s time for a real beer!

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2004
This was purely in the interest of modern science as I detest ’normal’ Becks with a passion. It looks and smells like Becks’ little brother in that it is the colour of watered down limeade and has a sweet aroma. The taste however is much nicer than Becks. It doesn’t have that nasty bite and is actually quite mellow. It’s still a poor beer and I’m glad I’ve got it out of my system, but give me this over its stable mate any day.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear extremely pale gold color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing, oddly, considering the quality of the rest of the beer. Aroma is beans. Seriously. Beans, stale leafy hops and not much else. Taste is sweet malts with a faint hint of hops. Some graininess in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. This is all over the place, very strange and very, very bad.

jtclockwork (8571) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Backlog. Pours yellow. White head. Nose and taste is mostly watery corn, sweet grain, light pepper and a bit of skunk. Light body.

Benzai (8525) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell and taste lightly malts, some bitterness. Quite thin bodied, low to average carbonation.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
355mL stolen from random refridgerator. Pours a clear deeper golden with medium white foam that laces very nicely. Nose is skunky from green bottle, herbs, old corn, Taste is metallic up front, biting moving to very sugary, cloying, oh man all sugar with licking a penny sharp metallic. Ick.
