1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
With all those 0.0’s in the supermarkets now Grolsch, instead, released a 0,5% beer. Worth the tiny bit of alcohol? I know it can be (i.e. Weihenstephaner), but the aroma is not promising. Very grainy, sweet and way too clean. Also looks super clean, with only a light grey lace. Taste is a bit fuller maybe than the 0.0’s around, but still very light bitterness and kind of artificial feel to it. So very much comparable in the end. Disappointing. (33cl bottle, very cheap)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
30cl Bottle from AH. Clear pale golden colour, white head. First whiff is dank, cabbage, later on light grassy, cereal. Flavour is light to medium sweet, cereal, aspartam, watery, light grassy, light aluminium bitterness. Very light-bodied, watery, but imo actually better than the regular Grolsch, because it doesn’t have the regular nasty skunky and grainy bitterness of most Grolsch beers.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The head is medium. It smells malty a bit barley, flowery. The taste is a bit bitter and malty but also a bit watery. Boring and not tasty but not that bad then the most other alcoholfree beers.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale yellow with no foam head. Aroma and taste is like most alcohol free beers, too sweet, too thick, no bite. It adding to the list, but not a beer for multiple repeats. (Velp 201208)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 0.5%. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is like a pale lager at first, also with a decent mouthfeel. Then comes the usual slightly too bitter bitterness that non-alcoholic beers often have. Bready finish.
