COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Non-Alcoholic beverage made the way beers have been made in Germany for centuries. Genuine, pure and natural. Claushaler is brewed according to the law that’s as unique as the beverage. The reinheitsgebot, which says that only the purest ingredients must be used - water, yeast, malt and hops - nothing else. Clausthaler, pure and clean with German taste.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Deep golden color, small head. Aroma of biscuit. Bitter, but not enjoyably so. Flat finish. As others have said, it is not terrible; it certainly has more flavor than Coors/Budweiser/Miller. But it is not good. I would not pay for another one, but if someone gave one to me, and I was a designated driver, I would drink it.

Big frothy head. Crystal body almost rose-like. Nice aroma. Not really hoppy. But, it’s definitely not the syrupy malty flavor some alcohol-free brews have. Bitter flavor. Watery body. Bit of an odd flavor lingers on the palate. Not bad. However, I won’t necessarily be buying it again.

Chudwick (2174) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 11, 2014
A 12oz bottle best by two months ago. Nose is caramel, bread and hay/grass. Sip reinforces nose. Slight bitterness with less sweetness. Fairly good for the style. I’d have this again.

Frank (2957) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
This is a pretty decent non-alcoholic beer. It is a clear light amber color w/ a small head of fine bubbles. It is malt forward and maybe a little bit worty and unfinished but still quite tasty and drinkable. It is a bit sweet and more or less smells and tastes like GrapeNuts cereal so just like fresh malt. It is medium bodied and not too heavy w/ moderately vigorous carbonation. It finishes w/ a lingering nutty sweetness. This is not fooling anyone; it very definitely tastes like a non-alcoholic beer but it is rather tasty regardless.

arminjewell (6322) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle, clear orange with no head, aroma brought cardboard, sour garbage, salt, hints of grainy malt, corn, very husky. Taste is a mix of corn, husks, lots of cardboard, garbage, acidic malt, finishing tart.

adnielsen (9414) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle @ Greg’s dump. Pours a golden orange appearance with an off white head. Moldy, corny, grain aroma with a bit of metal. Light body. Fairly metallic. Light caramel. Kind of gross.

rondphoto (2171) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2014
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma is appealing malt. Clear brown with a 2" head that drops to a cover, bits and pieces of lace. Seems pretty much like a brew. Taste betrays some of that, but I went in expecting much less. Begin with caramel malt, move it through the palate to a lightly carbonated finish. I can actually drink this (Miller/Bud low abvs I cannot). Not much, but if I’m the designated driver with cops all around, I could do worse.

Spab (2509) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
12 oz bottle from premiumnearbeer.com. Pours a clear amber colour with moderate-sized off-white head - nice looking for a low alcohol beer. Aroma is lightly skunky grains, grass and a whiff of sweet caramel. Flavour is metallic, skunky grains, vaguely caramelly sweetness and some modest grassiness. A cut above some low ABV offerings, but still pretty underwhelming.

Drake (8616) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a dark amber color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of tea, caramel, mild skunk. The taste is sweet grainy malts, sticky caramel, grassy hops, mild skunk. Low carbonation, thin bodied. Not bad, actually.

Onslow (1202) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Amber brew with off white head that soon fades. Aroma of light grain, something oddly metallic or mineralish, but not offensive. Taste is slight caramel at the start, some hints of molasses, an off bittering int he finish, reminds me of the bitter part of molasses. Not a favorite.

BiereLuc (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bière cuivrée, limpide, peu effervescente et peu mousseuse. Le nez est mielleux sur un fond de foin mouillé. Au goût, c’est très céréalier, sans corps ni tête... avec toujours ce miel qui surgit d’on ne sait trop où. Ce n’est pas foncièrement mauvais, mais... ah pis oui, c’est foncièrement mauvais!
