2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
One of the first low alcohol beers that only appeared to be so because you know it. There is something ’strange’ with this beer but it is a very decent replacement. Maybe the best Dutch low alco I have found so far.

0,33l fles, lekker verfrissend biertje voor als je geen trek hebt in de alcohol. Je proeft wel dat het geen vol pils is, maar het hopje, de graan en CO2 zorgen ervoor dat het een lekker verfrissend drankje is. Zeer Goed alternatief voor frisdrank als je de weg nog op moet, alhoewel de Duitsers hier toch betere alternatieven bieden.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear goldblond coloured beer with medium white head and lots of carbonation. Malty dough aroma. Medium sparking palate. Finish is malty sweet. Not good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl. bottle @ Rick. Drank from the bottle but is’s undoubtly going to be pale yellow with a white head. Not too promising familiair low alcohol aroma: cooked cabbage and carrots. Taste is better than expected; medium bitter with some grainy tones. Among the better Dutch low alcohol beers but still not very good

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle of 330 ml, poured into a wide glass.Nice golden yellow colour, with a thin head and bubbles at the bottom which you could count if you wanted too. I didn’t like the smell that much, I think I could smell some corn..Tastes like.. nothing, as someone gave me a glass of water with some drops of beer into it, just for the colour. Thin on palate and watery.
Good if you’re not allowed to drink proper beer I guess, but even then there are much better flavoured beers out there.

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)
