Shamelessly tasted for the tick. Shared with the great Jimthechap. This is a syrupy concoction, greyish brown, sweet, aromatic water, more like some soft drink gone terribly wrong. Hoarders! We’re all fucking hoarders!

Bottle from Mariusz - many thanks! The beer pours out in a clear brown-amber colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of herbs and malt. Taste of black tea (light a darjeeling leaving to soak for too long), green tea, mint, herbs and malt. Finishes off like darjeeling. Intersting brew.

0.33 l can, Marko’s, well mate, huge thanks for sharing! It poured really nice deep copper colored body with small beige head. Aroma showed typical shitty sour and grainy NA malts. Flavor was a tad better though, some caramel showed up over that sourness. Medium bodied with short grainy finish. Could be worse, this is marginally drinkable.

Thanks again to Cantabrian, but I’m afraid we’re probably both going to damn this one with faint praise.
Aromas and flavours of sweet malt... it’s almost as if it hasn’t been fermented at all! Sweet malty water. It’s no wonder the Iranians are pissed off.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a clear light amber color with a hint of a light tan head. The smell is molasses, corn syrup, barley, grain. The taste is grain, light molasses ending a touch dry. Light/medium in body with mild carbonation. Actually fairly tasty for a N/A but not as a beer...more as a malt beverage though it is a bit too sweet.

Thanks to kevnic2008 for this beer! Dark golden in the glass, malty-sweet nose. The "beer" starts sweetish and malty. Quite watery, but highly drinkable. Sweetish-malty in the mainpart, tends to be watery. The aftertaste is malty-sweetish, nearly no bitterness. A bit sticky.
Easy-to drink "beer". Not bad for what it is. --> 7/12/6/7

witaminowy smak. syrop na kaszel i nieco mdlawej owocowosci, wyczuwalem brzoskwinie oraz miod. Kolor miodowy, z niewielka piana. Wysycenie prawie zadne, no i innych ciekawych spostrzezen sie nie doszukalem. Tp bezalkoholowe piwo jest dla mnie traktowane tylko jak egzotyczne doswiadczenie.

Canned 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and heavy. Darker golden/amber coloured, small off-white head, caramel and cereals in the nose. Slightly acidic cereals and mild caramel with short finish. Drinkable but useless.

Going step by step up the ladder of top beers from Iran raters. One more left in the stash. But let’s talk about this beauty, brought, of course, by Krešo (huge thanks!), and produced (at least this 0.33l can) in the middle of Iranian Kurdish lands - Sanandaj. Brownish-amber body with a fine white head. Dry malty aroma, caramel. Caramel taste, but slightly sourish, which actually helps the drinkability. Can be drunk.
