Amber pour with a light white head that dissapates quickly. No lace. Sharp aromas of hops and light pils malts. Flavor is sour and fairly offensive. Stale hops and malts. Lingering finish that’s rather unpleasent.

Bottle. Normally i’d be in a desperate situation if i was trying non-alcoholic lagers. In this case i wasn’t desperate or anything, dad just had one in his fridge, so i figured i’d grab another rate and save myself buying this beer further down the track. It was one of the worst beers i’ve ever had, flat, lactic and totally void of any pleasing flavours (there wasn’t a lot of flavour anyway).

This was not really bad for a NA. Has a bit of a crisp harsh bite, with just a taint of hops. Not terrible but not something I would drink again.

Not bad as NA beers go. I’d take an O’douls Amber over this one any day of the week though, if I was drinking an NA beer that is. Which I almost never am.

The best NA beer on the market today (this is limited to what I can import of course!). Not only does the taste take you back to Oktoberfest, but the color and head are reminiscent of the greatest of German brewed creations. A superb refreshment that is never far from my lips. Also, of all current NA beers in the world - Clausthaler Premium has the LOWEST rated carbohydrates at 5.8! Drink up, eh!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2004 bottle. Good deep yellow color, clear with a decent white head. Smells crisp and lagerish, with some sour yeast notes, and the typical honeyish smell. Some almond-like nuttiness. Good hops flavor up front, lightly bitter, mildly herbal with a sweet low alcohol flavored malt (mildly sour). Cookies and dough come to mind, but it finishes mostly clean, with a touch of zing. As far as low alcohols go, this one is quite good, lacking the typical stale malt and sickly sweet flavors. It’s like a low alcohol light, pretty good medium-light to light body. Watery, bubbly.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is of hops, grass, and oil. The flavor is malty and hoppy in the beginning, but then sour grassy in the end. A good start but a very bad finish and the body is thin.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Fruity and lightly perfumed with a trace of peppery hop but spoiled by an off note that gives it a chemical edge. Thin malt in the mouth but not enough to convince you you are drinking anything other than fizzy water. Quite hop bitter in the finish with some raw hop resin lingering.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
This does not even deserve to be in the Beer Catagory. Yes it looks like beer with a golden body toped by a white smallish head. Faint hint of hopps in aroma and taste but both are very poor in my opinio. Bitter, unbalanced, weak and with little attractive flavor. Not worth the effort.
