1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light aroma of malt and a promise of hop. Golden white color with a minimal white head. Thin to medium body with brisk carbonation. It’s malty. The promise of hop seems unfulfilled. Brings the old Near Beer to mind. Beats water, and I might prefer it to Bud Almighty. The finish is fairly dry, and the long remain is somewhat papery in flavor. Not all that bad, I am drinking more of it than I thought I would!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 (buckler 0.0% can. STATED ABV 0.0%)
not that bad for a zero alc. beer, but the usual overly cereral bad taste had been exchanged with something resembling diluted dishwasher-water. but as i wrote, not bad for a zero alc beer.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A: The pour is a very pale straw color with a finger’s worth of white head.
S: This is what it would smell like if you were sprayed by a whole population of skunks. Just for a bit of "balance", we’ve got some resin and bong water. Maybe a bit of sweetness.
T: Amazingly bitter, and not in a good way. Lots of skunk, as you would expect after just opening the bottle. A bit of an apple juice sweetness underneath. Some coffee grounds too.
M: The body is light and thin and the carbonation is medium to high.
D: This was horrendous. I wish I could give this beer a zero on the aroma. Wow...do not buy this.

Bottle from Krogers. Clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light herbs hop aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a light bitter finish of short duration. My expectations where met.

Can. Hungarian version. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. No aroma at all. Week but not bad flavor. Short finish. This is very close to water but refreshing as it doesnt taste BAD.

Botella, some where in Paris. Golden colopur, medium rather short lasting white head. Aroma of grains, bit sweet. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour is grainy with a mild sweetness and some grass. Light short bitter finish.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bought on Tenerife. This straw colored non-alcoholic beer has a huge head. The aroma is soapy and malty, and the flavour is watery and slightly perfumed. It’s no pleasure, and it went down the drain in a jiffy! 1566

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Pale yellow, heavily carbonated. Does what it says I suppose, low alcohol, thin low impact. Barley malt note, if you have to drive then its better than losing your license.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2009 courtesy of Antonio Ruiz; canned - pale and clear golden colour with a persistent but chaotic foam; understated aroma which manages to reduce the unusual flaws of NA beers to the minimum showing just some hints of wort; very watery and tasteless; short and inexistent finish - quite close to water
