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.

1.6 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

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Godl pour. The smell is a bit Heineken skunked. Flavor is light and griany, slight hop. It isn’t good but it has a flavor that I can drink.

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).

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.
