0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Let's see.... it smells like a sweaty baboon's ass crack; is an N.A. brew, and is oddly priced-up. At least it looks vaguely interesting in a glass - like a hefeweizen's red-headed stepchild. Slightly cloudy; actual limited head. Tasteless, except for skunkiness. Ugh, the things you do (and drink) to try and win a t-shirt. Should be renamed Barfler.

Mine was brewed in Spain (Aguila?). Very light horseblanket aroma. Pale golden color, white head that diminishes fast leaving no lace. Grainy, chemical, little bitterness. Little herbal in the finish.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hey, this is worse than Coors N.A. Almost no aroma. Appearance is initially quite good ... clear golden amber with big white head but the head vanishes before you even sip the beer. Flavor, like aroma, is best described as missing. A little malt, a little floral hoppiness, a little bitterness, but mostly bitter metalic aftertaste on a mouth of water. The warmer the beer gets the more unpleasant it gets. This is probably best drunk as nearly frozen slurry.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2004 Nothing to really complain about here. This brew's par for the course when it comes to European NA beers. A decent, crisp and slightly watery taste.

Fruity malt and light herb aroma, pretty insignificant dryness on the palate.A little herb and spice with a slightly soapy finish.

Seems to me when your Dr. puts you on the wagon, this is where you turn. OK for a non-beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Mostly drinkable for an N/A, but there are better choices. The funniest part is that it’s better than Heineken (slightly cleaner smelling and tasting).

I’ve had Busch N/A, Coors N/A, Budweiser N/A, and Miller N/A and I have to say that Buckler is far better than any of these. That is how I am going to rate it. If your Catholic and give up beer for lent, then this is a good substitute to keep you at ease during those 40 days and 40 nights.
