3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium head of coarse white lace sits atop clear, light copper-toned
body. Aroma is mostly floral hops, with notes of grass and perhaps a
bit of clean straw. Taste is much like the aroma, very light
initially, but with some straw/caramel malts. Ends in a nice, crisp,
slightly dry bitterness. Very good for a non-alcoholic beer!

Sad that this is higher than Bud, but I would have to agree. This is my first N.A. beer. Smells like Becks. Darker looking than I expected. Head is nothing. Okay, faint taste of nuts surrounded by pale amber malts and metal. But not as bad really as I’d’ve thought. Quite happy I found a store where I could buy all these N.A. beers by the single.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 The overall aroma is sort of malty with a slight skunk to it... the appearence is light golden yellow with a medium white head and thin white lecing that stays throught most of the drink VERY highly carbonated smooth and very drinkable better that many beers that contain alcohol such as bud and miller(thats not sayming much)

Pours a distrubing brownish gold with a wispy white fully receding head. Aroma is sweetish malts (crystal). Taste is bland and dissapointing. Drain pour. I’d rather drink unfermented wort than this strange beverage. I want to try an N/A hefe before I give up on the style.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
The aroma is very light but it does have a little malt and maybe some citrus. The appearance is better than most NA beers because it does have a little head. The flavor is very light but there is a little bitterness from hops. It’s too bad you can’t smell them. The palate is thin as expected and the aftertaste is sweet and almost sticky. This is just a very weak lager. However it does have a unique aroma for an NA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz green bottle "Premium". Powerfully clear bright golden pour with a light layer of bright white head. Some lacing as it went down. Aroma was initially quite pungent and reeking of skunk. After a few minutes, some wheat and light hops came through on the nose... and the skunk receded. Flavor was more pleasant than anticipated... sweet base with honey-like malt and light floral hops. Light and well-carbonated on the palate, with some spicy hops on the finish. This definitely picked up some points as it warmed a little bit.

Golden color with fizzy head. Taste is honey and sweet malt. Grass/skunky aroma and thin watery finish. This tastes like Corn Pops watered down.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle. The third non-alc beer today. What suffering this is. Clausthaler is by far the best of them. Golden in colour with a white head. No carbonation. Some sweet and orange aroma and flavour. Thin, flat mouthfeel, with a light hoppy aftertaste. (050918)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clausthaler has light golden color with a decent lasting white head. There is a very slight sweet malty aroma. The initial taste is sweet but as the beer is drunk the flavor becomes less and less noticible. A light bodied beer with not much aftertaste.
