0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a yellow gold with a scummy white head. Hay aroma, it kinda smells like a barnyard. The floor of a barnyard with hay, manure, and evidently some sugar. Sugar and dirt are in the flavor, grain bitterness Horrible afterflavor.

sample from a 12oz bottle. pours clear pale with small white head. nose is something awful, smells like a bag of fresh cut grass and manuer, and pigs rolling in their own...you know. flavor is very similar, that wonderful sweet bag of grass. oh so gross! alcohol is barely noticible though.

Full frothy white head. Light clear gold body. Slightly skunky hops with some sweet urine. Sweet pilsnery corn hop taste. Pretty sweet, but acceptable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The best NA beer I have had to date. I poured it out from the bottle, and it had the usual NA beer look: clear gold color, small ascending bubbles, and a small, white bubbly head. The aroma was good, and distinctly German, I was pleasantly surprised. It had some grainy and earthy hop notes, with slight hints of herb, cereal and citrus; also some caramel malt. The flavor began sweet, but immediately became bitter with a sour finish. It had a slightly unusual sour after taste that persisted. The mouthfeel was wet and surprisingly fizzy, with moderate carbonation. Pretty good for NA beer, but also more expensive than most other brands.

(in can, 50 cl.).
Clear golden body, a decent and lasting white head. Cereal malt aroma with some herbal lights. Some sweet flavour with some sugary citrus tones and light bitterness. Very light body with strong carbonation. It is good enough, for to be low-alcoholic

Sweet, malty, soft on the carbonation. Very little aftertaste. I prefer the extra herb version.

Bottle 0,33l. Pale golden coloured with a fluffy head. Strong aroma of sweet malt. Tastes like sweet bread. No bitterness. Utterly boring.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I like to be to be bold, to stand out, to settle an amnesty for the little guy, obviously in this case it is a non-alcohol ’little guy’. Why the banter, why the derogatory, ill formed, ill instrumented comments. This is what it is, and for that, hey, it was a decent drop (to salvage my masculinity I drunk this one in private!).
Looks damn good in the glass, enough for top points pale lager-wise. A billowing plume of white, quite dense, adorns a sunny gold body harbouring tight, fine carbonation. Pleasant, not too aggressive, cereal grain nose, quite gritty and ripe, sweet but balanced barnyardy waft that was clean and fresh. Generous, palest grain flavours upfront in the mouth, conversionally sweet like breakfast cereal. The palate is otherwise dry moving into grasping, tangy efforts mid-palate towards, hold on a tick, f&*kin’ hops in back. Unexpected, this baby harbours much, oozing hops for balance, what N/A beer has that!?!, it peaks peppery, vineyard spicy and drops of bitter and florally tangy. It works just well enough for me to think of having another. Keeps good, downs easily even as it warms it stays refreshing and balanced. It’s light bodied and doesn’t drown into any of the Birell clones misfortunes, in fact I really enjoyed this one. Just don’t tell my mates!!! (33cL, 02/02/08, The Beer Store Morley)

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 Horrible smells like skunk and is absolutly undrinkable. I actually checked to see if it was past date because the smell was so aweful. WOw! To be honest this beer was in a green bottle and I am pretty sure it had been light struck to hell so I will be a little bit forgiving.
