The cask and barrle. Bready grassy bittering hop, biscuity, though not overly as many low alcs are, good bitter finish. Great body for a beer with only 0.5% alc.

Roasty, meaty and slightly metallic, with a medium-light body... It smells clean — but that’s likely because of the little to no alcohol content. I’ve never had an alcohol-free beer before, but this comes close to real beer since there are enough of the other core beer ingredients to make up for it. Of course, it’s also kind of like going decaf — what’s the point?

500ml bottle: poured yellow with a fizzy white head. Head vanishes quickly. Moderate hop aroma. Flavor starts off good but then leaves abruptly. Quite a bit of hops in the flavor with some wet cardboard. Quick short finish. Decent for what it is.

A beer with no alcohol in it and still a very nice taste. A light and still hoppy beer. Great for non alcoholic beer

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bouteille. Couleur blonde-or claire, avec mousse qui s’estompe vite, mais garde un lacet et trace bien le verre. Arôme subtil de grain, malt sucré, avec un peu de houblon floral. Goût sucré, avec une pointe sûrette, mais un peu camouflé par les houblons floraux, et une légère amertume. Finale en grain et houblons. Manque de corps et texture, mais carbonatation modérée correcte. Excellente sans alcool à mon avis.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 (As 0.0%). Pretty good for a non alc. I like bitburger quite a lot and there is some of the same hoppiness and balanced sweetness left. One of the best non alcs.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I had the pleasure of enjoying this delictable offering in Afghanistan where it is the closest thing to beer I can get. Drank it from a can, and suprisingly the hops are present, but so is an astringent almost metal like flavor. There is a bery watery mouthfeel with a little bite of sweet. I have decided to forego any barley based drinks until I leave the country. Not bad for an NA though.

Heavy hoppy aroma. Average frothy white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear yellow body. Heavy acidic initial flavor. Light to medium palate.

Bottle at home. Pretty flat. Aroma alright, a bit hoppy. Sour taste. With that non-alcoholic finish. Wouldn’t drink this unless pregnant...
