4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 This brew has a rich, full flavour virtually unknown amoung non-alcoholic brews. It does not taste at all like Heineken, but it’s excellent. The only NA beer to have all in one brew a good body, complex malt flavour, and good hop bite. It might be noted that this one always makes me very sleepy, even with no alcohol...I wonder why? Could it be the hops?

I’ve had Busch N/A, Coors N/A, Budweiser N/A, and Miller N/A and I have to say that Buckler is far better than any of these. That is how I am going to rate it. If your Catholic and give up beer for lent, then this is a good substitute to keep you at ease during those 40 days and 40 nights.

A great choice if you can’t have alcohol...ie: driving. All the taste is there in a genuine, great tasting imported lager.

12oz brown glass pry-top bottle. Proprietary dating system.
Quick review: Tastes like a slightly lighter version of Heineken. Off-dry Euro-lager style with that destictive "skunky" aroma and flavor. Crisp and mostly dry on the finish. Like Pilsner Urquell meets Heineken.
For an NA beer in that style, not bad. It didn’t have that slick, almost sweet character that most de-alcoholized beers have. I’d rather drink this than Labatt NA, Gennesse NA, Coors NA, or Kaliber if I have to drink an NA beer.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 It says, Heineken Spain, but it is the same, I guess. The colour was normla,some sort of low alcohol one, but the taste was not that bad.

Bottle: Not as bad as I was expecting. Pours light gold with small foamy white head. Sweet aroma, lightly sour. lightly sweet taste, hints of caramel. Otherwise plain but pleasant.

In my drinking days, Heineken was my #1 choice among Euro brews. When I stopped drinking, I wanted so badly for Heineken to offer a comparable n/a refreshment. Instead, they offered a commercialized pseudo-clone with more water in it than Chris Webber’s knee. As disappointed as I am in this brewmeister’s lack of effort, I am soothed by the fact that it’s still a skunky, blonde brew with a nice look and aroma. Tastes like it was poured out of a brand new Converse high top, but it’s still better than all the n/a beer in the States. Overall, it’s just good enough to be in my Top 10.

Pour form a 12oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head. Aroam of light malt and skunky hops. Taste is very seet light malt at the start with a skunky / astringent hops finish. A more robust flavor profile tahn I expected, more robust than many macro lagers. Extra dry and bitter in the finish without the alcohol sweetness. Pretty decent stuff.
