1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
So I’m 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 I’ve 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.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Alright, so I can’t say I looked forward to this, but I still wanted to tick this, just because if it’s history. Or rather the brand history, as it developed in The Netherlands. Oddly it’s 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. It’s not even the poorest alcohol free beer I’ve had though. Just the aroma is so sugary you don’t want to drink it. (25cl bottle from a random shop at Gare Montparnasse Paris)

Bue en canette métal 33cl. Aucun intérêt mis à part que ça peut, de loin, rappeler un semblant de goût de bière à ceux qui ne boivent pas/plus d’alcool.
