2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

0,33 flaske på Fisketorget Stavanger, men kun fordi jeg kjørte. Et ok alternativ til flaskevann, og den sto seg ganske bra til fiskesuppen. Jeg er ennå ikke i mål mht å finne en virkelig god alkoholfri øl. Kanskje et umulig mål, men jeg gir ikke opp. Johnny Low er fortsatt i særklasse når det gjelder lavalkohol.

They make some convincing NA beer in Europe, I will give them that much. They unfortunately insist on putting it in green bottles though and that is just gross. This green bottled skunk bomb is golden in color w/ a small white head. It is grainy, good and skunky w/ an earthy bitterness in the finish. Aside from this weird drying quality it has on its tongue, it is indistinguishable from a crappy Euro lager w/ alcohol in it. After the first bottle, I am going drink the rest w/ lime like some sort of boost-free Corona so I think this stuff will at least serve its purpose for me.

Bottle prior to class so figured good time to get that 5th low alcohol rate. Pours clear yellow with malty nose. Tastes of malt, grainy, and sweet corn. Light metallic aftertaste. Hopefully last one of this style I have for awhile.

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Malt: Rich Grainy, sweet corn, light metallic. No diecetyl, no fruitiness, very clean.
Appearance: Body: Clear pale light gold. Head Frothy large, white. good retention.
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium-sweetness, lingering bitterness. Grainy, bready, medium-rich, crisp, medium floral hop flavours,
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, highly carbonated. dry finish.
Overall: Wow! This is an amazing non-alcoholic "beer". I doubt that most people will, without looking at the bottle, know that this is non-alcoholic. Highly recommended for when you are thirsty but are supposed to study (like me, now).
330ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja
