jcos (1562) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2012
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, Iím 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 from Monoprix, Nice. Maintains a lager aroma and taste rather than a heavy malt. Itís only in the aftertaste you can feel thereís no alcohol in here.

slowrunner77 (5986) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 19, 2014
pretty much as expected...though ironically not as skunky foul as the last Heineken I had. Standard macro swill, fake-ish tasting pee water...could be refreshing ice cold but quickly wears thin

mkel07 (3566) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
On Carnival Splendor cruise ship September 2013. One of the better alcohol free beers that I have had. Thin body with wet dress aroma and an artificial sweetness in the flavour.

Thin, bland. But it does actually remind me of a beer rather than a fruit juice as most of the other 0.0% beers I have sampled, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the closest to just tasting like regular beer any NA beer Iíve ever had has come to. Unfortunately, the beer it tastes like is Heineken. I think it essentially identical in flavor and aroma right down to the thick pall of skunk. It is clear golden in color w/ a small ring of head. It basically just reeks of skunked hops and corn flakes and tastes reasonably bitter and dry. While I donít think anyone would pin this as an NA beer, I still donít think its any good.

dostaliblin (3) - ISRAEL - JUN 23, 2014 does not count
From 33cl can. Pours golden yellowish, thin head disappeared quickly. Pretty solid deep malty taste with sweet candy notes. Not so bad for a non-alcoholic beer

Sweet malt aroma. Relatively decent body for such a beer. Hop hints, lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2207) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2014
So Iím trying to get 5 of every style and I saved a few styles I hate until the end and now am paying the price. Pours light gold with nose of metal. Tastes of corn, metal, cardboard, sweet malt, and skunk. Thin palate.
