2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale golden color, white head. Malty aroma. Fairly hoppy flavor with herbal notes. Light body, medium carbonation. Not bad for non-alcoholic.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pale golden. Herby hoppy, pale malty nose. Initially quite ok, but turns quickly grainy carboardy. Light miuthfeel, horrible grainy old leafy harsh malts. And a strong herby, sort of murky twigsy thing. I would probably prefer the domestic ’kotikalja’ non-alcos over this.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Jever Fun) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a lager glass.
Golden yellow colour on the body, crazy continuous activity in the glass. Almost two fingers of white thick head, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing around the glass.
Aroma is very malty, some straw too.
Taste is sweet, lots of malts, cornflakes, dirty hay, dust, metal. Bitter aftertaste though.
Medium body, average carbonation.
Nothing special, but if you’re not allowed to drink it would be okay I guess.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a 330ml bottle. I thought this was OK for an alcohol free beer. Decent grassy hop bitterness. Watery light bodied palate as befits this category.

33cl bottle from Biernavigatie. Clear yellow/golden with a small white head. Light body with moderate carbonation. Bitter and metallic with some sweet tones. A watery bitter brew with a far too metallic aftertaste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Extracting alcohol extracts the very spirit of this beer - bitterness gone, metallic aftertaste too.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml bottle. Clear bright yellow body with a low white, brief, head. More "artificial sugary" than malty, with a hint of grass and citrus.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle on the Mrs’ tab. Rating this within the category of low/no alcohol: a poor trait of that signature Jever hay/grass bitterness turns more metallic on a pappy, cardboard palate. Astringently paper dry finish, made somewhat more palpable by residual pine and malt sweetness. Still not the worst out there.
