1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Zero aroma. Light amber color with a white head that laces a little! Very light malt, essentially no hop, overall the flavor is watery toffee. My memory says the Near Beer of decades ago was more flavorful. The finish, if you care to use that label, is such that you can imagine a bitter hiding away. There’s probably a place for this, but where or when is a mystery to me.

I can only give points for the look of this beer is not the worst. however, the rest of this beer is not worth anything. if you have to resort to this. then drinking beer is not something you should do. Drink water instead

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 The aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of hops. The appearance is pale gold/ light amber with a super thin head. The flavor is malt with no alcohol taste. The palate is quite thin. The aftertaste is almost non existent.

I was really expecting a complete drainpour - especially from the looks of the can - it was all dented and dirty sitting in the corner at Albertson’s. It needed a home - I lied to to the clerk and said that I was buying it for a friend as a joke. Anyway, light copper appearance with a steady and persistent white head, wort-like sweet malty aroma. Has a malty flavor to it, slighlty similar to the Malta beverages. Mouthfeel is not completely thin - especially for an N/A. Finish was rather harsh though, very metallic and dry. Actually beter than most of Gluek’s alcoholized beverages!.
