0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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!

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

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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 330 ml can as Buckler 0.0%. Brewed by Heineken España, Sevilla, Spain.
L3331724L. BB 27/11/14. (Consum) Águilas, Spain.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Bread, rye and something burnt in the aroma. The flavour is a bit better but still very typical non-alcoholic lager. Quite bad.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Chudwick. Probably from Party Source, there’s a $1.49 sticker slapped on the back that is very much their style. Code on the back seems to read 3301528S2331. Poured into an over-sized tulip. Geez, up front this again has that same exact incredibly strong burnt popcorn aroma, just like the Beck’s NA I had recently. Wtf. In the flavor, more of that, a little rough spiciness, and watery bread. Lots of sweet yellow corn, and a mild sourness. Moderate sweet taste, rough spicy bite, kind of acidic. Clear golden yellow color. Little bubbly white head. No lace sticks. No more than a few sips for me, no thank you. I regret asking for these NAs.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is quite light with a bit of sweet light grain and water. Flavor is similarly thin with just a bit of light sweet grain and corn with a bit of water in the finish.

Can sample at a tasting. Thanks Oren. As "Buckler 0,0". Cereals aroma. Sugary cereals flavor. Watery.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Positively reeks of rusty baked bean tins, beans on wholemeal toast. Pours with quite a convincing head of dense foam. Smooth and malty with a not-revolting parting bitterness. Wholemeal and metal. A trace of biscuit. Nothing overly offensive.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another nice non-alcohol malt beverage with more than the usual hop content to actually appeal somewhat to the beer drinker’s palate. Still not a beer by any stretch, but at least not offensive owing to the clean malts and the noticeable hops.
