3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma and taste are pretty fresh and slightly citrussy with a nice light bitterness in the end. Pretty good for a non-alcohol beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle as ’Jever Fun Friesisch Herb’, BB Jan 2016. Pale yellow, sparkling, slight haze, small white head. Aroma is uncooked rice, paper, spaghetti. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is thin and watery, a little oil, slight salt water, fairly hoppy. Leans more towards dry and bitter than sweet, which is good. Not bad by any means, and decent in comparison to others in the style.

Crystal clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aromas of malt, grain, straw and a light floralness arises. Light lively, light body with mainly bready flavour notes and a faint hop trace. Short finish.

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.

Extracting alcohol extracts the very spirit of this beer - bitterness gone, metallic aftertaste too.
