Tasting Notes: With a white frothy head and a clear golden body, this German-made lager strikes a balance between sweet and bitter with notes of bread crust and herbs. Food Pairing: The bread crust-like malt flavour will match the sweet nuttiness of falafels (just go easy on the hot sauce) and the bubbly, hoppy finish will cut through its hummus and garlic sauce. Also welcome alongside most salads and white fish. The Verdict: A refreshing, crisp lager. Especially recommended for Heineken and Grolsch lovers.

Bottle 33cl found @NOZ. A clear clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is on toasted grain, nutty, barley sugar touch. Aroma is on grassy hops, watery, lesss malty, barley sugar touch. Very thin, peppery hops at the finish and on duration.

anstei (645) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 29, 2015
330ml bottle from Dubai Mall. Pours clear golden with a medium head that settles quickly. Strong malty odour, not my thing. Crisp and slightly citric taste, some bitterness, but I can’t taste any malt or hops besides that. Not entirely off-putting. Probably about the best that non-alcoholic can do?

The key here is to treat beer on its merits. This is a no alcohol beer. It isn't going to be big. But had worse from mid-strengths. It has a bit of smell. There is a lager taste there. It might get you by on hot day if you can't have high alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
33cl can bought in Kuwait. Brewed by Brasserie Kronenbourg in France. The beer starts neutral-malty, no real aroma. Cornflakes, wet cardboard. Slightly malty aftertaste, not even refreshing...

Metalchopz (2837) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated April 2005. Sampled from a green 330ml bottle with a best before date 09-2005. Pours a light golden colour with hardly any carbonation. The white head is quite descent though, and the lacing left is very nice. The aroma is grassy and metallic with hints of sweet malt. The taste is slightly bitter with a mildly sweet aftertaste. Not much punch, but still some taste to it. Very smooth mouthfeel. An o.k. pilsner-style lager for when driving, but you might want to stick to cola.
