2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts and hops, very pilslike. Flavour is very malty and hoppy. This is actually one of the best non-alco beers I have ever had. Thanks to the personnel at Tuulensuu in Tampere for mentioning they have this one "off the lists".

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottled) Clear golden with a smallish, but reasonable, lacy head. Neutral, herby-hoppy aroma with red currant, and hints of buttery-hoppy malt. Grassy-herby-hoppy flavor with some plastic hints, and a dryish, bitter finish. Light-bodied, but not watery palate with pretty high carbonation. Not at all bad for a N/A - only slightly plasticky.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Straw, huge, white head. The aroma has notes of soap and the flavour is sweetish with a rather fresh citrussy bitterness, notes of soap, flower and malt. Even if it isn’t a joy to drink it, it’s far from the worst low alcohol beer, I tasted. 1876

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Very smoothly carbonated and sweet taste. Not my choice of non alcoholic beers. Re-rate: I don’t know if I was having the premium one last time, because this time it doesn’t feel excessively sweet. I picked it up because I remember I hadn’t had it before and it’s actually quite bitter and tasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smallish white coarse-laced head over clear, yellow body. Grainy, straw-like aroma with some noble hops. Light, clean taste with marked bitterness and carbonation throughout, ending in spicy driness. Milky mouthfeel. Excellent for a non-alcoholic, and better than many pilseners I’ve had.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 Bottle. Golden colour, big stable white head. Flavour is watery, but quite close to beer. It does have a little acidity/wet rag to the flavour. And the usual strange bitterness that alcohol free beers tend to have. But less bad than the usual. Good grassy and mildly sweet hop note.
