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-Busch’s 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.

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 isn’t good to begin with. Below average on the palate. This beer has no redeeming qualities in my opinion; but then again, I’m 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 doesn’t lace at all. Plain aroma with basically nothing at all. Very light grainy, metallica, slightly appley aroma with nothing else really. Tastes like water that’s 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 it’s worth, but this is probably the best NA out there. If there weren’t 100,000 + other beers to drink, I’d have one. Seriously, good to keep a few around if you want a beer-like drink and can’t 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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5338) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a medium golden color with a huge yellow-white head that lingered. The aroma was faint citrus and dry malts. The flavor was dry and a touch malty and nutty. The finish was short and watery. Very light body. Amazingly this was better than the full alcohol version - but still far from good.

Can. Pours a decent golden-yellow with a thin white head that lasts. Very similar to Busch, but has a little more bitterness to it. A pretty good N/A, since it is comparable to the regular version. That may seem like a bad, but for me it is a good. Refreshing and rather enjoyable, when one wants a beer, but can’t have one.
