2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a straw color with a half inch head that dissipates and leaves little to no lacing. Smell is of grains and a slight skunkiness to it, couldn’t really find any hop aroma. Taste is real watery with a slight taste of grain and skunkiness, no hops detected. Seems to be a little overcarbonated with virtually no body. I just can’t give any higher than a one for drinkability, less than one of these is more than enough.

A famous beer, but why? It smells and tastes terrible - really chemical. In no way drinkable. Really not good.

Bottled. Why drink an NA? Not much choice when pregnant and craving a beer. Pours out like a typical pale lager in appearance with a nice white head. Best description for aroma and flavour is faint black tea with lemon added. Strange

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Well, to start off, I was never really interested in trying an N/A. But, in my quest to sample every beer style, I decided that this is, still, a beer style. Nonetheless, I was still pleased with the aromas and the taste of this beer, and I suppose it can be useful in some instances. The color was an attractive amber/ gold, slightly darker than the taste suggests. The head is big, white, and fluffy, and the taste is actually about twice as good as I expected it to be. It has a decent balance, with a bit of fruity bitterness (pomegranate) and a very dry, lingering finish. Not a bad beer, if you want to call it that.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a white head, quickly diminished. Dry aroma, has notes of hay and a whiff of lemon. Flavour is dry and cardboardish grainy. Ends dry with a bit of bitterness.

12 oz bottle; pale gold with a big white head; Nose is grassy with a hint of mint esters; flavor has some hop bitterness and lawnmower grassiness. Would be OK on a hot summer day mowing the lawn!

Nose is thin and tinny with some grass. Taste is aspartic. Sugar and grass. Not very nice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle. Golden colour. Tall creamy white head that clings to the glass. Floral hop aroma with a grainy background. Powdery texture and papery flavours. Quite a bit of hop bitterness. Light bodied, obviously, but there is for a beer of this kind a decent amount of malt flavour as well. Finishes papery and with a nice lingering bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Sharp cabbage aroma. Ubiquitous pale yellow color and appearance. Very good carbonation. Interesting pasta background. Grain and cardboard palate. The more I drink, the more I begin to think it has a stronger APA bitter hops finish. No way! I think the carbonation is the best thing about this brew.
