1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal light golden with fizzy white head. Highly carbonated but head dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is light but hints of malt, grassy, yeast. Pretty smooth mouthfeel with moderate spicy bitterness that lingers slightly on the palate. More body than I expected which combined with carbonation lends for a decent mouthfeel. Overall, this is so-so brew for a low-alcohol beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big offwhite head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation.
Strawy fruity aroma with ashy paper and grain notes. Dry grainy
papery caramel taste with resiny notes. Mid-to-light body.
Sharpish, slightly abrasive mouthfeel. Dry salty grainy
aftertaste with metallic floral notes. It has some enjoyable
aspects, but the aftertaste and grainy paper don’t really agree
with me. (0.33l bottle, I forget where from.)

Flaska systembolaget. Blekt guldfärgad klar vätska med vitt skum. I doft känns bröd och lättare malt. Smak av urvattnat och osaltat bröd. Vattnigt med en konstig bitterhet.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a vegan restaurant is this possibly the least Jow meal ever perhaps. Pours faint gold with big white head. Nose is grain and lemon. Tastes of water, lemon, grain, cardboard. Faint and uninspired but nothing unpleasant.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear pale golden with a small, white head. Raw grainy aroma with hints of herbs and metal. Moderate sweet, not much flavour, but some bitterness is present. Hardly impressive, would probably prefer mineral water.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) This is the most expensive non-alcoholic brew I’ve ever tried...I got it mainly out of curiosity, I would never buy it at the astronomical price, it was nearly $12 a six-pack. Very hoppy, easily the hoppiest NA beer I’ve tried, which is a good thing. Hops are strong and bitter, with a pungent herbaceous aroma, only very slightly skunky, almost spicy. Light-bodied, extremely refreshing. Almost no sweetness. Compared to a typical alchoolic pilsener, this was even lighter-bodied, even less sweet (almost no discernable sweetness), and there was much less malt character, it was practically all hops. Light but crisp carbonation. The only objectionable quality was a metallic character in the finish, a lot like the same metallic quality that plagues Warsteiner’s NA beer. I actually really enjoyed this overall, and if this brew were priced more reasonably, I think it might be among my favorites. But $2 a bottle in a six-pack? No thanks. Surely they could find a way to get the price down a bit...not even Clausthaler is anywhere near this expensive.

Pours yellow. White head. Fairly clean, balanced, a bit sour. White bread, some metallic notes. One dimensional. Boring, even for a non alcoholic beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity smell, a bit chemical. Very light taste, some hint of pale bread. Also a bit chemical in the taste as well. Far from one of the better non alcoholic beers. Drinkable but unclean.
