So I was at dinner with a few friends and the waiter was being extremely sarcastic (you know, the kind of dry arid sarcasm that dries you eyes out. No sweat, just humidity) and so, in return, I felt an obligation to return the favor. In deciding to buy a beer to complement my pizza, I asked the waiter for his expertise and he said the best beer they had to offer was this Kaliber N/A. I asked him what N/A stood for and he said he thought it had something to do with where it was brewed. So moments later he returned with a big demonic smile on his face. "No refunds" he smugly replied as I bitch about the reality of things- N/A surely doesn’t stand for Nebraska. Beware, this beer is like drinking very watered down urine.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Pale amber brew with white head. Aroma of sorghum molasses, taste is the same. Interesting beverage but not a good imitation lager.

Once poured into a pint glass and also poured into a pilsener glass. There really wasn’t any difference.
The rest of the appearance had a clear yellow color with a fair amount of carbonated bubbles lingering to the top at a decent rate. Head? What head? Yeah, not really there.
The smell left a lot to be desired but had a light sweet corn aroma.
The taste was mainly just sweet through that sweet corn and that’s it.
On the palate, this one sat about a super light with a decent sessionability about it depending upon how many one really wants to have, I mean, well, it is a low alcohol beer for a reason.
Overall, everything’s already been said, low alcohol beer and one to me that is good for the style but one I most likely wouldn’t seek out again.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has earth, dirt and yeast in there and doesn’t seem like a very good drink. Taste is much thr same with little to like or appreciate. Ugh.

Bière blonde qui tire légèrement sur l’ambré. Tenu de mousse moyenne. Belle effervescence animée. Le nez est légèrement désagréable; un peu de foin mouillé, du vieux miel cuit... En bouche, la bière est mince et très mielleuse. Les bières sans alcool ont souvent ce petit goût de drêche au miel, mais celle-ci s’en sort un peu mieux (c’est presque harmonieux, comme si c’était voulu). En finale, ne reste qu’une faible amertume, un peu sèche, mais toujours enveloppée par ce miel qui ne décolle jamais du début à la fin. Heureusement, c’est la fin.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The body had a nice light honey color with a small creamy off white colored head. The head fades quickly leaving nothing behind. Its aroma was light and somewhat buttery. I also picked up sweet bready notes. It’s flavor has a light body and a thin watery texture with odd buttery and grainy flavored malt. Also there is a mild and bland over cooked hop flavor that sneaks into the finish. The carbonation is lifeless and almost flat.

12oz bottle. Oh the stories but who cares? Malty nose. Sip is nutty. Better than I barely remember. Just might jump start my n/a kick until child #3 pops out. For an n/a lots of flavor. Best n/a by a long shot.

Dirty bronze pour with a 1 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is weird grainy sweetness, like sorghum, buckwheat, rice and corn all boiled together. Flavor is pretty much the same, but with a strong metallic taste. Light body, dry feel, medium carbonation. Nothing good here, unless you really like sorghum.

Found one of these in my father in laws fridge so figured I’d give it a try. Pours clear light golden color with white head. Light grainy aroma some vanilla. Light crisp malty flavor with caramel notes and creamy vanilla finish. For what it is it’s not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This stuff is not altogether bad. It doesn’t quite taste like real beer but it’s kinda close. It’s orange golden in color and there is a small head of medium bubbles. It kind of smells and tastes like malta mixed w/ soda water so maybe a little unfermented but at least not too sweet. It’s medium bodied and prickly carbonation keeps it from being sluggish on the palate. I am not sure it’s fair to judge this stuff as beer but as a substitute, it does well enough.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a thin rim head, no lace. Very still. Taste is weak malt joined quickly by carbonation. This, unlike a couple of other NA examples, tastes like watered down lager. There is nothing present to save it. This one should be avoided.
