2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is the closest to just tasting like regular beer any NA beer Iíve ever had has come to. Unfortunately, the beer it tastes like is Heineken. I think it essentially identical in flavor and aroma right down to the thick pall of skunk. It is clear golden in color w/ a small ring of head. It basically just reeks of skunked hops and corn flakes and tastes reasonably bitter and dry. While I donít think anyone would pin this as an NA beer, I still donít think its any good.

From 33cl can. Pours golden yellowish, thin head disappeared quickly. Pretty solid deep malty taste with sweet candy notes. Not so bad for a non-alcoholic beer

Sweet malt aroma. Relatively decent body for such a beer. Hop hints, lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium sweet.

So Iím trying to get 5 of every style and I saved a few styles I hate until the end and now am paying the price. Pours light gold with nose of metal. Tastes of corn, metal, cardboard, sweet malt, and skunk. Thin palate.

Buckler has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and pretty heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, biscuit, and some grass, and the flavor is of sweet grain, biscuit, and grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a touch slick, and Buckler finishes fairly crisp, tasty, and easy drinking. Yes, it does have a bit of that "something missing" aspect that one gets from non-alcohol brews, but this one tastes more like beer than any Iíve tried, so far. I like it! RJT

At first feels great and refreshing, but almost you tip your tongue in it you get a infected sourish feeling. Avoid.

Alright, so I canít say I looked forward to this, but I still wanted to tick this, just because if itís history. Or rather the brand history, as it developed in The Netherlands. Oddly itís widely available and I got this one at Gare Montparnasse. Although the looks are okay, it smells way too sweet and quite chemical. Taste exactly how you expect. Bad. Itís not even the poorest alcohol free beer Iíve had though. Just the aroma is so sugary you donít want to drink it. (25cl bottle from a random shop at Gare Montparnasse Paris)
