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.

Grabbed a quick bottle during work am I really purposely paying good money for this tick sometimes this hobby is dumb. Pours dark golden with thin sudsy head. Nose is corn grains and stale hops. Tastes of sweet corn, light malt, cardboard, raisins. Sweet with ok palate.

Malt heavy aroma and taste, but thin mouthfeel, not very interesting. I would prefer water.

The_Osprey (2928) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
440ml can, BB April 2015, no ABV details. A desaturated orange colour, slightly sparkling, clear, very small white head with some thin lacing. Aroma is vegetal, syrupy, soup that’s been sat in a pan for a week, marmite. Body is medium to light, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste has more vegetable, potato starch, pasta, water. Utterly shit.

Clear copper color white head. Musty aroma. Taste is sweet caramel, candy licorice and unfermented malted barley wort.

HIGHB4LL (823) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: 2 fingers wwhite head, caramel gold, clear, good lacing. Aroma: mashed malt is about the only aroma. Palate: light body, average carbonation, thin watery texture. Taste: watery thin into mash taste that is really not pleasant sweet. Overall, horrible taste! Horrible!

"wow...i wouldn’t think that a non-skunky beer could even possibly be near the bottom of the barrel. there’s some foul crap down there...but this beer belongs there all the way. they somehow managed to mess up the muddled malt flavor (the only flavor there) so badly that it’s just horrid to taste. the aroma is a touch better, still crap. the look is better than the worst, but this over gassy beer sucks. "

superspak (3227) - Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 4/13/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers, Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of cracker, toast, biscuit, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, toast, cereal, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toast, cereal, herbal, and grass on the finish for a very short bit. Okay flavor balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a dry finish and zero lingering flavors. Pretty bland/watery on flavors but not horrible. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and dry mouthfeel that is good. Overall this is a pretty solid low alcohol beer. Solid balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Considering the style, this was pleasant and quite enjoyable.

Onslow (1246) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2014
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.

Bulk_Carrier (2579) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2014
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.
