1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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. "There’s a hole in my beer, Heidi!" A good effort by BB, but it’s always a compromise. My Onkel Klaus drinks this stuff now he’s old.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Taste like a beer, which is the objective of a low-alcohol. Unfortunately, like a macro lager. Still, it did the drink at the end of a warm long afternoon. Somewhat sweet and aggressive carbonation. Pale yellow, no head. Grassy, metallic. Thin mouthfeel.

2004 bottle provided by and shared with clarkvv: Gold body with a medium white head. Excellent head retention. Aroma is apples, honey, corn, pilsner malt. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Flavor is slightly acidic with notes of cereal, sour yeast, cardboard. The finish of this beer is very clean and crisp with no bad flavors. This is the only beer I finished during our swill tasting.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Removing alcohol should not remove flavor. There is nothing about this beer that is noteworthy. Aroma, body, taste are all crap.
