1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale golden body with a very small, frothy, white and short-lived head, some of the foam manages to hold on to the glass. The aroma and flavour are both quite typical for a non-alcoholic beer: mostly sweet wort. A good thing about this one though, is that there are also some traces of a citric freshness that isn’t completely drowned by the nauseating wort sweetness, also some vague hints of honey. But of course, it’s quite terrible stuff, thin and watery. Still, this is not the worst 0 % ABV beer around.
[33 cl bottle, hurled down 5 months after BB date, but I doubt a newly bottled beer would be considerably better, from Ultra Sandvika]

Doing some alcoholfrei reviewing.

Pours light golden with a little central bone white foam. Brilliant clarity. Smells of light grain, a little corn, some herbal hops - actually smells like a decent pilsner! Flavor of grain, some astringent rice-ee-ness, a little bit of a apple pith character, pretty watered down pilsen style - I guess that’s part of the product. Thin bodied with hi carb and a wet finish. Not bad, not bad at all. Beats soda pop at 90 calories per bottle.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal straw color with stark white head that dissipated quickly. Larger bubbles and highly carbonated. Nice pilsner like aroma of malt, straw, honey, floral, slight pepper. Taste is initially sweet with a tartness. Finishes a bit sharp...almost metallic similar to copper. A slight bitterness/acidity lingers on the palate which is reminiscent of wet paper or cardboard.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bitburger DRIVE. 330ml bottle. Golden yellow, thin white ring. Nice fizz. Aroma of pale malts & and skunky saaz hops. Tastes is clean & crisp. Nice grain flavor. Plenty of hops. Makes up for being zero ABV. This N/A Pils has great flavor. Finishes with a hop flavor that will satisfy your needs. (3810)

330 ml bottle, into a lager glass.
deep golden yellow colour on the body, one finger of white head. Low retention.
Aroma of malts and that’s pretty much it.
Quite malty taste too, but with some bitterness as well, with medium duration.
Medium thin body, low carbonation.
Overall nice non alcohol beer.
