1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Location/Date:Bottle on October 27th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a clear see through gold, with some bubbles.
Aroma: Aroma of cereal malt.
Taste: Very faint bitterness, cereal malt, not as stale as expected.
Palate:Light body, quick finish.
Summary: First off, this is Style Rating 72 of 73 for me - only Lambic Faro to go! I find it kind of ironic that Heineken sells their nearly non-alcoholic beer in a brown bottle that protects light, and their main beer in a green bottle that basically skunks an already poor product. But hey, I’m not in marketing! Similar to my experience with malt liquor, I expected worse than this. Yes it still has a low rating, but maybe a bad IPA is worse than this because with an IPA I have higher expectations.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Medium straw colored. A finger of head, quickly gone.
Smells like a metal can of grain.
Light taste, strong bitterness builds but ends with metallic aftertaste.
Light and weak body and moderate carbonation.
Well, it’s tough to like this one. Pretty poor all around.

Had it back then. Bottle. A little bit better than the average mass-produced non-alcoholic beers. Not so sweet, medium bodied, light bitter.

Det är alltid kul att prova lite lite annorlunda saker, men det här blir aldrig speciellt roligt. Den smakar som en tam och smaklös öl och man önskar lite att man drack något annat.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The aroma isn’t bad. The smell is actually pretty similar to Heineken. Unfortunately it all goes down hill from there. The appearance is of water with some yellow dye added. The taste is about the same. A touch of malt or maybe hops initially followed by water. The clear theme here is watery - I’m sure there has to be better options.
