3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear darker amber color, topped with an average off-white head. Citrusy hopps are easily picked up and very pleasant. Body is a little flat, sweet and watery with nice and easy hoppy bitterness going in the aftertaste. Nice and tasty

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at BrewDog Birmingham. Amber, slightly hazy. Minimal head but a decent amount of carbonation. Spruce/pine hop aroma with the savoury sweetness of caramel malt. Sharp clean bitter taste. Considering the ABV it has a decent flavour but there’s no way it will get away with having a full body. So yes, watery as hell, but overall nd outstanding recipe and the perfect early afternoon bitter.

Bottle. Pour is amber with a foamy head, aroma is fruity, pine, resin. Taste is smoky, pine, bitter, slightly watery, body is thin and carbonation is soft. Not quite sure what to make of this, certainly different

Bottle from Tesco, decided to check it out as I haven’t done so before and wanted to see if it would be a decent very low alcohol beer. Pours brown looking like a bitter with lightly foamy head. Smell is impressive, citrus, piney, grassy and grapefruit. Taste is rather bitter and no sweetness and very thin and watery. Above average and has its place!!

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, from Tesco. Chestnut brown, thin but sustained off white head and moderate condition. Solid resinous hop nose with hints of citrus, pine and a peppery earthiness, muted caramel in the background. In the mouth it is quite thin and dry with a tinny hop note, there is a slightly musty earthy note and a hint of spiciness, but not enough sweetness to round the body out enough. Finish is briefly dry and hoppy fading away to a low bitterness

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Tesco - Deep amber body, thin white head, great clarity. Nose is a proper hopbomb, loads of citrus and pine, quite winter potpourri in the whole. Taste though is a bit thin, slightly bitter, but all in all quite boring. Mind you for a 0.5% ABV? Stunning.

metallic pine cone aroma, drunk straight from the bottle, strong bitterness in the mouth followed by some biscuit then a quick dry finish. not sure what to make of it, is it an excellent alternative to non alcoholic drinking or just somthing to make you want somthing better

My local Tesco doesn’t stock Punk IPA but stocks this! Bizarre! Anyway, pours a clear brown/amber colour, almost tea coloured, with a frothy white head. Aroma is very grassy hops, pine and grapefruit. Wasn’t sold on the taste of this one. Admirable effort given that there’s almost no alcohol there; piney hops, slight grapefruit, and slightly malty back to it, but it just tastes a little bland. Very watery mouthfeel, and decent enough lacing on the glass. Good effort to brew a low alcohol beer with at least SOME taste to it (Becks Blue, I’m looking squarely in your direction), but it just seems to fall a bit flat. A shame from an otherwise great brewer.

Great hop flavour for a non alcoholic beer, you can sense the malts as well. It is quite highly carbonated, but a great example of a beer tasting non alcoholic beer!
