wedgie9 (1899) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Tasted on 8/28/14 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear pale golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is skunky sweet corn malt with a touch of spicy noble hops. The flavor is the same overly sweet corny malt, skunky, a bit more bitterness from the hops than I expected. The body is as light as beers get with fizzy soda carbonation and a short lightly bitter finish.

Can. Crystal clear pale liquid. Light body, medium carbonation. Smell of stables. Taste of old hay. Very bad and almost undrinkable.

maneliquor (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
This is by no means a bad beer. For practically an alcohol free beer I was expecting mousse shit but this provided far greater. I wouldn’t drink it on a regular basis but for the very odd night it actually becomes across like an everyday lager without being offensive. Not bad

kraddel (3057) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2014
@ Rembrandt . Pours very clear blone . OK white head . Smell is sweet , spices ( a bit of white-character ) , grainy . Taste is grainy , sweet, sugary , malt-extracts ( no trace of the spices ) Alcoholfree, so only natural it is low mouthfeel , but even for a alcohlfree one, this thing should have more taste an seriously less of the filthy sweetness . Drinkable ...

Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Classic maltbier and one of the best-selling low alcohol beers in the world, with a firm and thick, cream white, moussy, stable head and clear golden colour. Grainy aroma, pale malts, cheese, honey, floral hops; grainy, lightly sweet taste with a bit off-putting sourish touch, evolving into a long, sharpish hop bitterness (unusual for the style) which also reveals a medicinal effect. Reportedly very low in calories so it does have its purpose and though I generally do not like industrial maltbiers, admittedly this is one of the best in its genre that I know of.
