A genuine Bitburger - without any alcohol - but with the same drive as far as the taste is concerned, in bottles or as fresh draught beer from a keg!

Medium gold body with a frothy white head. The aroma has carrots and tomato plants. There is nothing unpleasant, but itís strange. The taste is light with some celery and a little bit of bread crust. The finish is a little bitter with some grapefruit rind. Not bad.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe malt. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. This is one of the better non-alcoholic beers on the market.

so, this was in the fridge in my uncleís garage so i decided what the hell i have a few pale ales to drink after and then some macro lite beer to drink tonight. this pours a filtered apple juice body with a decent white head that shrinks quickly. the aroma is vegetable and vanilla. . grain flavor with tootrhpicks. still, for an n/a beer it is better than expected. a copper finish is rather bad though.

From the bottle, in Berlin

Sparkling clear golden; aroma is much like the regular version, slightly more sour. The taste is rather unsatisfying, though - not the same crisip bite of the regular, instead this has a thin mouthfeel and a sour skunkiness and a zinc finish that leaves me wishing Iíd ordered a San Pelegrino instead.

I am not that fond of this one but those who enjoy European style lagers will like it. It has that distinctive aroma somewhat like cardboard and yeast with wheat. The appearance looks like about any other lager but it has a smallish head. The flavor is obviously not robust but its also not super weak. And you can taste the hops. It also has a sour taste I donít like but it certainly is more complex than many of the style. Grassy, metallic aftertaste. This one is a mixed bad of both good and bad.

Perhaps my favorite NA. It is very light, but considering the ulternatives it fits the bill. A little hops and a refreshing carbonation.

(Bottle 33 cl) Golden beer with a small head. Naturally rather light-bodied, but still it comes with a surprisingly real beer feel to it. Not bready and sticky sweet as often in this style. Has a fine, discreet bitterness. A very decent representative for itís style. 111101

Fairly decent for a beer without alcohol. Golden with a slight head, it has a mild grassy malt and floral hop aroma. Lively mouthfeel. The flavor is a sweet and grainy with a snappy hop finish. Okay, but I donít want to make a habit out of drinking anything with an ABV of 0.5%.

Some malts in the flavor, along with hints of stale hops. Very light yellow body, small white head. Dusty flavor, the hops arent very pleasant.

DerWeg (1551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Fresh bottle, Germany, a half dozen times. Greeny hops aroma, worty malt in nose and in taste. Mild bitter hop aftertaste. Fairly decent German macro lager flavor with the requisite attenuation of the body caused by missing alcohol. "Thereís a hole in my beer, Heidi!" A good effort by BB, but itís always a compromise. My Onkel Klaus drinks this stuff now heís old.
