2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
clear golden colour, relatively dense and stable white head; aroma of vegetables, some cardboard and corny notes; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness with no maltyness at all - like a tea boiled from bitter hops; as a beer it would not really be enjoyable, but as an alcohol-free ’beer’ it is acceptable

Can from Tesco. Aroma mostly worty, hint of hops. Clear golden colour, relatively ok duration of head. Taste is what makes this one of the best (if not the best) low alcohol beers I have had. You get to taste some hops, even more so than in their regular beers :D Actually I would call the hopping here bold, not overpowering though. Raw wortiness is present but what can you do with unfermented beer. Also does not seem as watery and overly sweet as other non-alco beers. Heck I can even imagine drinking this all night. Just stick to the cans, I would be afraid of the ugly green bottle pictured here.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear, a bit darker golden color, topped with a small and disappearing white head. Grainy malt aroma, some grassy notes way in the back and a bit smelly. Taste is sweet, a bit of bitterness in the grassy body. Light and watery, not great, but pretty decent for a non-alco. If nothing else around.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 2A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch A4. AROMA: hot unfermented beer wort aroma with very slight hop aroma. APPEARANCE: gold color and translucent. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: odd cardboard-like flavour with notes similar to the aroma (boiling beer wort). very faint cereal aroma with low bitterness. finishes semi-dry and bitter. no hop flavour discernible. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: another alcohol free beer that tastes exactly the same as all the others: very bad.

Not bad for low alcohol, clearly worse than most usual beers. Aroma slightly hoppy. Taste: sour, a little bitter aftertaste. Drinkable.

330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Massive aroma of cheap fatty salami, sweet, boiled carrots and lemon too. Papery, spicy hop extract, faint lemon in taste. Watery mouthfeel. Thin. Tastes better than smells.

Fľaša 0,5 l z Tesca. Svetlá slamová farba, aróma pre mňa nepríjemne kvasnicová, pena biela jemná, ale drží a krúžkuje. Chuť vodová, slabo sladová, jemne horká, kvasnicová.
