1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Location/Date:Bottle on October 27th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a clear see through gold, with some bubbles.
Aroma: Aroma of cereal malt.
Taste: Very faint bitterness, cereal malt, not as stale as expected.
Palate:Light body, quick finish.
Summary: First off, this is Style Rating 72 of 73 for me - only Lambic Faro to go! I find it kind of ironic that Heineken sells their nearly non-alcoholic beer in a brown bottle that protects light, and their main beer in a green bottle that basically skunks an already poor product. But hey, I’m not in marketing! Similar to my experience with malt liquor, I expected worse than this. Yes it still has a low rating, but maybe a bad IPA is worse than this because with an IPA I have higher expectations.

Can. A decent enough non-alcoholic. Tastes somewhat like a pale lager though with a bit soda-like finish.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
0,355L bottle. Pours straw with white head. The small head stays for some time. Aroma: malt, corn. Taste: very watery, some corn, very light bitterness and malt. Overall: the aroma and appearance aren’t that bad, but it really tastes like carbonated dirty water.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Best by: unk
Golden raisin with a strewn top layer of central and perimeter whites. Smells like skunked hops, some metal and maybe wheat chex backwash. Not impressed by the nose here. Taste is grain, corn, a bit of herbal hops, some sugar, metal. Again, not very good. Thin body with light carb and an off dry finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal straw color with white head that dissipated very quickly. Aroma is hops and yeast. Grassy, spicy, floral, slight honey. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation lends to a somewhat watery palate. Taste is initially sharp with a faint honey-like sweet finish. Overall, this is a so-so import from Holland...even for a low-alcohol beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
33cl can bought at K-market Kilpishalli Finland.
Pours a 2-3 finger head which soon disappears on the yellow golden body,
leaving a centre field layer on top of the body and one ring lacing inside the mug.
Low scents of grass, hops, some malts, honey, apricot.
Weak taste of some malts, maybe hops, but it is too watery.
No bitterness, but alright carbonation.
Ends in some malty grains, and some metal.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl bottle from a local supermarket at Rhodes. Pours pale golden with a small, white head. Weak aroma of malt with hints of cooked vegetables and fruits. Medium sweet, weak in flavour, but with a noticable bitterness. Watery and close to flavourless, but quite drinkable as a thirst quencher on a hot day. Not the worst alcohol free beer, in fact better than the sweet, flavourless pale lagers that doesn’t even have some bitterness.
