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]

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow clear body with white foamy head. Smells of wort, dough, cereal. Palate is slick mouthful, carbonation is soft and lievely. Taste is sweet and worty. Typical non-alco taste of liquid bread, Overall a bit too sweet, but not bad at all. Quite refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pours a pale gold with a large persistent spongy head. Simple perfumey pils aroma, quite clean, quite pleasant. A touch watery in the mouth, but it is LA and a lager, one might call it "refreshing" instead. Plenty of weetabixy malts, but still there’s the perfume thing going on. Nice dry bitter hop palate, crisp, and resiny finish. None of the flaws that hoppier pils-style LAs usually have (such as being metallic puke). Clean, and crisp. Good for an LA, I actually quite enjoyed it.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
First thing that hit me before even looking at the colour was the smell. Skunky, corny, not very pleasant. Very pale pour with thin white head. The flavour - well, malty, little bit of bitterness, unpleasant skunky aftertaste. To be fair, it doesn’t taste any worse than some big-name European or Australian pale lagers, but that smell!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a crystal clear light copper/caramel color with a foamy head. Aromas of medium skunk, light grain, and grass. Flavors of faded sour grain, slight skunk and light bitter grass. Leaves a light bitter aftertaste without much of any grain flavors like much of the other NA’s.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Taste of unwashed clothes, old leaves and barley. Very undelicious and it was hard drinking it, even when I’ve been very thirsty.
