4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 This brew has a rich, full flavour virtually unknown amoung non-alcoholic brews. It does not taste at all like Heineken, but it’s excellent. The only NA beer to have all in one brew a good body, complex malt flavour, and good hop bite. It might be noted that this one always makes me very sleepy, even with no alcohol...I wonder why? Could it be the hops?

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 For an N/A beer, this is one of the better ones. Slightly heavier than most, this one has a fullness that will kinda satisfy you. Lightlly grainy and sour hay.

The only reason I tried this beer is because my brother is big on NA beers (I have to work on that). Poured a light, clear yellow with a small white head. Smells like ass (quite funky). Lightly sweet. Thin and watery body.

All Heineken beers are not THAT good. This is a Heineken beer. It is not THAT good. It is, however, an above average Non-Alcoholic brew (if you’re into that sort of kinko thing). Personally I think that besides not having much alcohol in it, this, taste-wise is on the same quality level as Heineken if not better, but then...who cares?

Very very bland, I had almost expected to get a better than average NA here, but nope.

Nose doesn’t give away that this is an NA. Pale yellow color and big foamy head. So thin and quick there is really nothing to rate or taste in detail. Watery, of course. Have had worse NAs though...

I was tricked into drinking this; before I knew what it was the guy was pouring it into my glass. He said it was the best non alcohol beer on the market. The fact that he was telling me that was a bit wrong but, I disagree with him. I’ve tried several other non alcoholic beers and this one was the worst.

This was simply bad, I expected it to be at least drinkable, coming from Heineken, but it certainly wasn’t. Watery, with a sort of odd, possibly fake malty sweetness, looked fine, but the taste was almost unbearable.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled (BB 11/2004)
Lager color with small white head. Grassy nose, slightly rubbery and skunked. This NA beer actually tastes a kind of pilsener, unfortunately grassy hops are quite weak and there is some sweet artifical malt aroma.
