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

Yellow, tiny head. Vague hint of malt in the aroma. Slightly fizzy palate. Some weetabix in the taste, but with an unpleasant twist due to some papery hops.

What a way to finish a great night of drinking...or maybe not. Skunky and stank hop water. Oh boy oh boy. It would taste better if I puked it up. Nastyyyyyyyy.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
The only reason I tried this beer is because my brother is big on NA beers (I have to work on that). Poured a light, clear yellow with a small white head. Smells like ass (quite funky). Lightly sweet. Thin and watery body.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market on, Charlottesville, VA on 4/23/10. Pours a very clear pale golden color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of skunk (even in a brown bottle), grassy hops and pale nutty and corny malts. The taste is grassy hops with some pale malts and corn. Thin-medium bodied. Decent for an alcohol-free.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampled a friend's at Thirsty Dog. About what you would expect of a NA produced by Heineken I suppose. Light gold color with a thin white head. Little lacing. Aroma is faint hops with a skunky aspect as well. Thin and watery and fizzy, with very mild hops and a somewhat filmy finish. I'd choose Warsteiner's NA over this any day.

330ml can picked up at Kilpishalli. White foamy head, slowly diminishing. Light straw coloured body. Very vague smell of malt-accented water. Extract of malts in flavour, but mostly dominated by a vapid kind of vegetables. Offensive drain pour (Tromsø, 23.04.2010).
