2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Very fine fresh hop aroma. Smells dry-hopped. Unfortunately it also smells a bit of sour rag and metal. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. OK mouthfeel. Flavour is very bready with the usual strange bitterness. Sweet aftertaste. Hop aroma does not seem to come up in the flavour. Among the best NA pils I have had.

Golden colour with a big long lasting white head. Sweet malty and a little grassy aroma. Malty flavor with some grassy hints. Some bitterness in the aftertaste, but thin.

sweet maty taste, clear bright straw colour with big white head, sickly sweet malty tatse.

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."

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!

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.
