1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Iran! Had a lot of different ’beers’ in Iran i.e. non alcoholic malt beverages. If you think of them as sodas with malt taste you won’t be disappointed. Of all the flavors I tried in liked the peach one best! Perfect with a falafel sandwich. Taste is generally a thin malt body with fruit flavor added. Apparently it is popular for Iranians to buy the non alcohol malt version and add baking yeast to make their own brew :). Istak and Heyday are available almost everywhere. I tried : lemon, peach, melon, pomegranate, malt and grape. Melon was weiiiird. :)

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Mar 2015 - "320+5ml" bottle. Clear reddy brown, lightly sparkling, small head doesn’t endure at all. Aroma is damp, slightly sour, maybe some coffee bean but very toned down. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, foamy. Taste is sweet malts, like a thinner and less sweet version of ’Malta’. (1.6) I also tried the peach version, which is unrateable and is similar but has a pleasant peachiness to it. I would have given it (2.4). Neither are beers really.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Pale orange, airy head. Fruity and fairly light bodied. Very light bready malt underneath an indistinct fruitiness. No bitterness. One of many products from this N/A-beer manufacturer, this one was supposed to be without additional fruit flavouring (all others I found from this brewer were clearly fruit flavoured). Still straddling the line between beer and no beer.

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.)

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.
