UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 Extremely bitter among NA beers, very hoppy, a bit skunky. Tastes like a good pilsener with the body and malt flavour mostly taken away. Has some body. While it is seriously deficient in certain areas, it is still my non-alcoholic brew of choice when I want something very bitter. I don’t understand why this brewer doesn’t go for more body--compare this low-calorie beer with Penn’s best, which has lower quality hops, but has the body of a real beer. I gave the high rating because I am impressed with the quality, given that it is an NA, and I need to compensate for the other raters irrationally low ratings. The bottom line--I drink this more than any other beer and it would be outright wrong for me to not give it a top rating.

I’ve tried so many N/As and this is far and away the best of them. Even better than a low abv like Beck’s Premium Light. Even when it warms up...which is when most N/As become intolerable it remains drinkable. My go-to beverage when I want a few ’beers’ but don’t want to get all tipsy.

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!

AtronSeige (520) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 18, 2014
Aroma: Malt: Rich Grainy, sweet corn, light metallic. No diecetyl, no fruitiness, very clean. Appearance: Body: Clear pale light gold. Head Frothy large, white. good retention. Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium-sweetness, lingering bitterness. Grainy, bready, medium-rich, crisp, medium floral hop flavours, Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, highly carbonated. dry finish. Overall: Wow! This is an amazing non-alcoholic "beer". I doubt that most people will, without looking at the bottle, know that this is non-alcoholic. Highly recommended for when you are thirsty but are supposed to study (like me, now). 330ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja 23. Specialty Beer 2A. German Pilsner (Pils)

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Pale yellow w/ a decent lingering head. Aromas of toasted cramel and biscuits. Good flavor and bittering. This really is a delcious beer as the style goes. Tastes like the real stuff. If you’re on medication and can’t drink, this is the beer of choice.

russmichaels (3) - Margate, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013 does not count
Unlike most people on here I am only rating this for a non alcoholic beer and not comparing it to alcoholic beer. Non alcoholic beer of course has a different taste so should not be compared, just as diet food should not be comapred to regular food. As a non alcoholic beer it is very good, one of the best, after a week drinking this I was used to the taste and had no desire to return to real beer. It is just a shame it is more expensive than alcohol.

This beir has a wonderful bitterness, very like a NA pilsner! ... colour is light golden yellow .. low no head, but some sparse lacing .. Has a wonderful flavour to it, grassy and crisp! .. One of the nicer Non-Alcoholics!!! Clausthaler seems to know how to do NA’s!!

This is good. For a fake beer. Real good for a fake beer, in fact. There’s not that many fake beers, and most of them stink (see Genny NA). This could reasonably be passed off as beer, and actually has a bit of taste to it. My first choice for pretending to drink beer.

Bottle 8 C, Göteborg AP: high head, light, light yellow AR: hoppy (green shots), carbonation F. honey sweetness, a bit dry, medium bitterness, very nice to be a non- alcoholic beer. But there is something cemical that I can’t put my finger on that gives it a bit lower rating!

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.
