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.

Smells of piss and beans. Almost colorless, clear, and effervescent. No head at all. Tastes like seltzer. Harsh aftertaste of cardboard that had been pissed on then dried. No redeeming value. If there is anyone who has intentionally bought this more than once I want to meet them. Their inability to taste deserves scientific study.

I will never understand non-alcoholic brews. Yes I know...I should appreciate beer for beer. But damn, shouldn’t it have some alcohol in it?

[1630-20080824] 12floz can. Grassy mud clods, mild dandelion petals and wheat aroma. Clear, light brown yellow body with a big medium-lasting foamy white head and a channel of tiny centralized bubbles. Cold flavoured water has notes of grass and light yeast. Light body. Not great but it’s notable Not to be skunky, so it must be good (ahem, unique) in its class for that reason.

2008-08-24. Crisp transparent yellow body that manages a decent albeit short lived white head with a swirl of the glass. Muted aroma of grainy straw, similar flavour of dilute straw and grassy cereals that are fairly washed out. Vaguest touch of bitterness. Palate is thin, but surprisingly decent for a N/A. At least its not skunky. Wisely chose to depart from it before it started to warm up. The cold is your friend on this one. Can, c/o Biegaman

You know I’ve had low alcohol beers before that were quite tasty, this is a piss poor example of that style and I do mean piss. Nuff said.

Rating #1500 12 oz. can courtesy of Bockyhorsey - That’s right boys and girls. It’s time to rate Arizona’s favorite milestone beer and my 1st, probably last, low alcohol beer. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is your typical grain and herbal hops. The flavor is.... Ah hell, this beer(?) just plain SUCKS. Which makes it perfect for #1500! If you didn’t have to drink it, it would be OK. Anyways, thanks (I think) to Bill for hooking me up.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 # 1900 Can at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Aroma of grain. Yellow body with white head. Just the standard grain flavor you would find in swill. Bought mainly for around the house when my dad visits but someone hadn’t rated a n/a beer so had to bust it out.

Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Number 600! Thanks Bill, though I’m a little curious why you had this in the house... As for the rating: Anheuser Busch, using detailed and proven scientific methods, discovered everything good and desirable about beer. Then they invented a way to remove all of it. This is the result. Cheers!

Can shared with tupalev - courtesy of biegaman. Actually looks OK at first - nice golden colour with a large white head - but the head quickly disappears to a thin, scummy layer. Aroma of rotting vegetables and chicken fat - ugh! Body is sticky and greasy. Flavour tastes like slightly rancid chicken stock mixed with the water that corn has been boiled in. Absolutely vile.
