COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Busch NA is a fully-fermented, non-alcohol version of Busch beer that offers a smooth, full-bodied, malty flavor. All of Anheuser-Buschís non-alcohol products are brewed, fermented and aged to full maturity. The alcohol is then removed through the use of low-temperature, low-pressure distillation. This extremely gentle process allows the alcohol to be removed without heating or cooking the beer, which retains the full, rich and delicate flavor and balance of our non-alcohol brews.

Yes, I am drinking a NA beer. Donít be alarmed as this condition is only temporary, I promise. Iíve always been skeptical of NA beers, and had a Paulaner NA a while back that was absolutely disgusting. However, for those unable to enjoy a malty beverage with its full compliment of intoxicants, this beer will stand in adequately. True to their marketing, this beer comes with a very similar stature to the Busch Light label with overbearing corn notes, a metallic finish that ruins everything, but is barely enough to be called a beer. If you are on an extended alcohol exclusion plan where drinking a sub 0.5% beer is the alternative to water/tea/etc, I would say this beer is on par with your other options if you normally consider Busch Light as a capable backup beer. For that, I will give this beer a nod for allowing me to at least believe for a moment that I drinking a real beer when in fact I am drinking an impostor. Actually tastes better than some real beers out there.

Pour from a 12oz can. Yellow brew with white head. Aroma of malt and wet paper. Taste is inoffensive but just rather blah. There are better NA brews sitting right next to it on the shelf...

12 ounce can courtesy of my landlord. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts, faint cracker notes. Thin bodied.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked: 12117-CE70. I am trying to review this only on whether it represents the style not so much as a craft beer. That is how I look at all non-alcohol beers. The pour is better than average for its style with a golden-yellow color and a fizzy head that disperses quickly. The aroma has the muted grainy malts that accompany the style and the slightest hop crisp. The body is watery-light and appropriate for the style. The taste is grainy with a clean finish. For a non-alcohol beer this is adequate.

Can to pint (from notes). Looks okay for an NA beer; golden with off-white head and solid carbonation. All down hill from there. Smells and tastes like a watered-down version of Busch Light, which isnít good to begin with. Below average on the palate. This beer has no redeeming qualities in my opinion; but then again, Iím not a fan of NA beers, so...

12 oz can pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is the same but more like water.

Roughing it in the Northwoods.. 12oz can. Poured watery straw golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up wet corn, honey, and a touch of cardboard, with odd, dark floral accents.. non-offensive, but very little to it. The flavor found garbage water over the aforementioned adjuncty malt-like stuff.. tacky and dry on the finish. Watery on the palate, with higher carbonation.. not a horrible flow to it.. this met expectations.

4/8/12. 12oz can. Clear light golden pour with a surprisingly nice off-white head that is thick and creamy but fades fast and doesnít lace at all. Plain aroma with basically nothing at all. Very light grainy, metallica, slightly appley aroma with nothing else really. Tastes like water thatís been run through a rusty pipe for about a decade... lingering anesepticy, kinda graininess. Very thin body - feels like lightly carbonated water. Lingering corn chips on the exhale.

Can to Shaker: Pale watery gold....sudsy white head. Nose is grain. Taste is cornflakes, water, cardboard ....and....water. Take this for what itís worth, but this is probably the best NA out there. If there werenít 100,000 + other beers to drink, Iíd have one. Seriously, good to keep a few around if you want a beer-like drink and canít have one. I used to keep them around for when my minister dropped by. He was diabetic, and ....well... a minister. But he still wanted a beer!
