sweet maty taste, clear bright straw colour with big white head, sickly sweet malty tatse.
Yes, looks like beer but those Germans must have been on acid when they devloped non alcoholic beer, and yet I ma the dumb ass for drinking this!!!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of 19 non-alcoholic brews I tried during a 4-month deployment in Kuwait, because that’s all I could get. 11/22/05 (bottle): Thought I’d had this one, but hadn’t. Dark yellow with a thin fizzy head that disapates into a white film. Candy-caramel aroma and sweet cookie malt flavors. By far the sweetest NA yet, with an interesting citric bitter twist. Not disgusting.

"had this off the list as a free one, no one told me what it was. AWFUL a snunky mess of a "beer" which it isn’t. I should have just had a soda instead."

Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of sweet malt. Flavor is pretty much the same, malty with a bitter aftertaste.

I’d slide this one in there somewhere between watery and herby. Other applicable adjectives include pissy and forgettable.

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!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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)

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.
