1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
32 cl bottle. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours dark golden color with a small head. Very malty and bready aroma, quite disturbing at that, some glue and earth. Flavor is quite awful, bready, malty, slightly spicy and earthy mess. Sweet slick palate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Call yourselves raters? I don’t see many of you clamouring to rate this Iranian no alcohol delicacy. 29p bottle from (what was) Hinckley Woolworths. Bronze with a fine, thin head. Chewits aroma. Strawberry chew taste without hop or malt flavours, but thankfully also the aspartame/acesulfame K bittersweetness that plagues most Belgian confections of its ilk. Not missing the alcohol or the sweetener. Hint of wholemeal, bags of sugar. At least it doesn’t taste of beans like your typical no alcohol sardine/donkey beater.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Brown coloured and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Aroma is heavy sweet, brown sugars. Flavor sweet too. No bitterness. Watery texture.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
320 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a dark copper cola colour with a small head. Aroma is very, very bready, raw and grainy. Flavour of grainy bready mess, wort, some sourness, very strong sugary sweetness and off-flavours. Light bodied and very watery mouthfeel. Horrible. I’d rather drink water.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Barely any head, just an uneven white film. Pale yellow body. Light perfumy peas and malty aroma, slightly artificial. Sweetish perfumy corn and artificial sweetener taste. Watery. Grainy artificial perfumy aftertaste, again with artificial sweetener. If I seem to have used the word "artificial" a lot, that is no coincidence. This is not beer. No malt, hops, or yeast were harmed in the production of this drink. I’m sure they used water, though. (0.33l bottle from KnutAlbert.)

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear dark golden with no head at all. Aroma is strong caramel malts.Taste is sweet all over, cloyingly and undrinkable, almost.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
No aroma to speak of, some faint sweetness, maybe.
Artificial sweetener dominates. The label says thay have added naturla flavour and carbonated water, but they have used the aroma sparingly.
The strongest impression is of tea/coffee sweetener. For tickers only.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Krasses Zeug, das recht heftig nach Hirse und Malz zieht. Als Limonade durchaus annehmbar, da zum Ende hin keine Holzigkeit aufkommt, aber dennoch ist das Ganze hier mehr Brottrunk als alles andere.
