1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle from duty free store at the Finnish-Russian border crossing. Clear gold colour, quickly dissipating small white head. Aroma of boiled malt, hay and a bit of lemon and cardboard. Thin body, metallic aftertaste. Not particularly nice, though at least it had some taste, unfortunately quite a bit of off-tastes, without them could be a decent soft drink. At least the price was appropriate, around 60c a bottle.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle at the Derby Beer Festival
This is a low alcohol beer so do not expect too many fireworks. On the plus side it has more flavor than some of them and also doubles as a quirky Czech tick if you don’t feel like drinking its more well known sibling instead.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated golden body certainly looks like a generic pale beer complete with the requisite fizzy head. Lemons, weak hops, and cereal grain are muted resulting in a nose that smells more like an alcopop.
Flavor / Palate - Grainy toast with a weak bitterness are the main aspects of an otherwise forgettable beer. The mouthfeel is fluid and refreshing at least. If you want something with more character buy a ginger ale and pour in a bit of sour bitters. It will taste better and probably be cheaper.

Bottle, 330 ml, at home, poured into a lager glass.
Orange golden colour on the body, very thin whte head on tio, with low retention and no lacing.
Aroma of malts and hay.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pale yellow colour, minimum head. Light hoppy aroma after bottle was opened and almost no aroma from glass. Very light malty taste with low bitterness in finish. Watery body and quite fizzy. Not so bad, but overall very weak NA beer, especially considering its relatively high price.

Endlich mal ein Alkoholfreies, dass auch wie Bier schmeckt! Würziger Antrunk und dann im Abgang ordentlich hopfig. Die alkfreie Säuerlichkeit hält sich hier zum Glück in Grenzen. Budweiser Budvar garantiert einfach gute Qualität!!
