Bottle. Pours a crystal clear, light gold with a medium, fluffy white head. Has a nice Pilsner malt aroma with some grass and florals. Flavor is lightly sweet and very bready, with some good bitterness on the end. Light bodied, well carbonated, cloud-like. Very good alcohol-free beer.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 My version seems somewhat different as it says Alcohol Free on the front! No more than 0.5% Anyhow. Tastes fine, as good as normal becks, even get a little effect of alcohol unless that is my imagination.

0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in clear golden with nice and stable head. Nose is a bit of citrus. Aroma also. Citrus mixed with hops. Taste is nearly pilsner like and compare to the other big German brands this one has a good taste where don’t recognize from the first sip on that alcohol is missing.

Pours golden yellow, with nice body. Smells sweet and musty like a good pils. It has a decent flavor, but unfortunately that cheat grain taste comes out in the end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Bottle, 275ml. Revised rating, tried another bottle that turned out to be a massive improvement on the first:
Pours golden with white head, which doesn’t last too long. Quite hoppy aroma, and pleasantly clean and crisp on the palate, with no surprises. Very decent for an N/A, but it does seem to be particularly susceptible to skunking, much more so than alcholol beers, perhaps because the acohol has a preservative effect.
Lesson: make sure to secure a ’fresh’ bottle!

Quite nice for a low alcohol beer, was expecting something like Kaliber with its stale taste but was quite supprised by this.
Was like a normal lager.
Felt great drinking yet not getting the affect of the dreaded alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Colour is very very pale clear amber. Nose is lightly malt grain, lager crispness. Taste is very watery, but it does have some crisp lager tang of malt grain and crisp lager yeast. light as a feather and watery. It’s refreshing and has no weird taste to it, so not bad for an alcohol free beer. Certainly not offensive, just lacking flavour.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Il colore è di un classico giallo paglierino, vivido ed omogenero, dai riflessi dorati. La completa trasparenza del corpo lascia chiaramente intravedere una lenta fermentazione interna.
La schiuma è alta e consistente in sede di spillatura, ma è destinata a scomparire rapidamente, rimanendo sottile a livello superficiale. Si mantiene comunque cremosa e morbida, caratterizzata da una bassa persistenza. Colore bianco sporco.
L’aroma è piuttosto povero. A parte un acceso e immediato sentore luppolato, non compaiono altre note di rilievo.
Il gusto esalta un corpo piacevolmente tondo, dal carattere mediamente pieno ma liscio, caratterizzato dal rapido passaggio tra imbocco e ingoio. Accesa concentrazione di note amaricanti all’imbocco, con accenno di pizzicore amaro a livello palatale. Se il passaggio è rapido, il sapore residuo è elevato, caratterizzato da un’alta persistenza amarostica.

Best by 07.2013
Golden with a finger plus of whites that only slowly falls to a solid sheet of the same. Really the best looking N.A. beer I’ve seen. Smells like many of the others: corn, grain, sweet white bread, but this one has an odd squash (butternut or pumpkin) character. Taste is corny with some sugar and a slight grain cleanliness. Medium on light with moderate carb and a fairly dry finish. Not bad, don’t care for the nose here.
