Bottled (my rating #2700). I decided to celebrate #2700 by this beer. Pour up a very golden colour and hasn’t got too much head. Aroma is mainly hay and paper. I wonder if the beer aroma is recycleable. The flavour is hard to imagine, efter the very surprising aroma. The flavour is very papery and hayish. When I was a little kid, I went to the paper recycling bin, this tastes about as much paper as it felt to be in the bin. All in all a quite bulk alcoholfree beer, with few surprises.

Bottled as "Alkoholfrei"
Golden color, small steady white head. Very sweet, artifical malty aroma. Extremely sweet annoying with all bad things what you can imagine in N/A beer. Overall too sweet.

BigBeer45 (1335) - Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Bottle, poured a nice looking light to med. gold, dry malt scent, very little malt sweet fragrance, light bread and toast fragrances, faint grass, hay and cardboard aroma, very smooth in the mouth, some syrup like sweetness, little malt taste and hop bitterness, dry on the palate, there is some off-taste, maybe it is pass its prime, I had this before and it tasted better.

leaparsons (8910) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle. Golden and orage with a small head. Aromas are skunky sweet corn with some soft malts. Flavours are sweet malts and corn with metal towards the finish. Tastes stale. Horrible. Drink orange juice instead.

pintbypint (2976) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2007
330ml brown bottle. Pours golden with a quick fading white head. Haylike/dry grass aroma with some grains. Flavour is also haylike, grainy, some sweetness, has some grassy finishing hops, trace bitterness. Light carbonation, had a bit of body, in a syrupy way.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Dark golden to bright amber color. smallish white head. Lots of malt and floral hops in the aroma. A bit worty in aroma, but that is somewhat typical. A smell of the brewhouse between the grind and the lauter tun. Actually quite dry with malt dominating. Herbal and grassy hops. Gets a touch thick in the linger where more sweetness is revealed. A very drinkable NA.

Well, this is the last of the n/a beers I bought & I’m pretty sure I won’t ever get another one. This beer was pretty much terrible. Pours clear piss yellow with a rocky uneven white head. The aroma is husky, skunky with a light bit of malt in the back. Light body with light carbonation. The taste is astringent and watery - not what I generally look for in any beverage. The finish is sour with a slight bit of spice indicating their could be hops in here. Needless to say this was a drainpour. Get a bottle of water instead, it would be better in every way.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a large frothy/lacey white head. The aroma is rough - watery, sugary corn profile...mild unpleasant grains. Oh christ, tastes like sour bread and corn. I can’t really see the attraction to this at all and won’t drink more than a few gulps. Thanks joey_capps.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2006 This smells really bad; like pissed on wheat or something else terrible. It also tastes the same. Is flat and disgusting. Furthermore, it has no alcohol, so no redeeming qualities. Horrendous. This is my first time to score a beer with solid 1s. I think I’d rather drink my own urine. I found a worse beer. Hueberts Old Tyme Lager. So I raised my score on this one.
