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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle consumed (well poured anyway) with angrypirate06. Hopefully my last NA beer, only ticked to get my friend the rate in all honesty. Pours with a fizzy white head that vanishes over the pale yellow body. My lord, this is one of the most light struck/skunked beers I have ever had the misfortune of smelling. And when I say smelling, I hadn’t put my nose anywhere near it at this point (the skunkiness was discerned at a distance). Just sitting on the table this thing produced horrific aromas. On closer inspection there was a bit of baked honey biscuit and seltzer water. Taste was cardboard and water with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not as bad as the aroma would suggest, but honestly, that is saying very little. Fizzy and thin mouthfeel. Drain pour, and good riddance. Poor sink had to take one for the team!
Oh, and to the person who claimed this is like "having sex with your clothes on" (Rustyham)...NO, its like thinking of sex with your clothes on: wistful thinking that results in little and ends up being an utter waste of time.

Another low alcohol piss-water concoction. I see that turbo has rated this just prior to me, so he’ll enjoy that my overall impression is the same overall impression i got when Greg "Lubed Anus" bled AIDS all over the Olympic pool. Thank God for chlorine!

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
2008-09-05?. "Enjoyed" during a Life at Sea talk by the cruise director that was much more interesting than the beer. Crisp headless yellow body. Lightly skunky, grassy cereal aroma. Flavour is similarly skunky, oxidized caramel malts. Avg to thin palate. Poor. Bottle, Diamond Princess

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.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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).

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.
