Small white head. Paleish yellow body. Light rubbery aroma. Taste is chalky rubber, with quite a bit of carbonation in the mouth. Thin, harsh mouthfeel. Dry rubbery aftertaste with faint grassy notes. Worthless. (0.33l bottle.)

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Extremely pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma, as it sat in the glass, twas a skunky brew from 2 feet away. Some pale malts, and light fruits to go with that. Flavor, grassy notes, pale malts, some yeast. Yuk. It got dumped.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. (as Buckler 0.0 (0% ABV) and Buckler Sin (1% ABV)) Clear, sparkling pale golden NA with a bubbly, diminishing off-white head. Sweet, malty nose, almost apricot-like. The flavor is malty and fruity. Thin, watery and a bit sticky mouthfeel and a malty and fruity-sweet finish. The beers are very similar in aroma and flavor, but the Sin has a strange unidentified aroma and a bready note in the flavor. Hrmmf! (070206)

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Compared to O’Douls and Sharps, this stuff was liquid gold. Very pale, a little bit of that funky taste that all NA’s have. If my liver were not working, I supposed I could get by on this stuff.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not best of the non alcoholics, yet it seems to be the most widespread. It’s too sweet and smooth for my taste. No bite.
