1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a nice clear amber with a large chunky beige head. Taste is cereal, toast, tea and a spice i cannot put my finger on..almost some subtle ginger and cinnamon? Not quite but that is all i can come up with. Body is light, carbonation is way too high, almost like a soda. Not horrible, but give me a Beck’s NA or St Pauli NA over this any day.

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.

Bottle, I drew the short straw and was the sober cab. The host got a six of this for me. I had three quarters of one and switched to water for the rest of the night.

Bottle pour, at work. Big white head over golden body, decent lacing. Aromas malt, very faint citrus. Flavor light malt, minerals, almost no hops. Finish is slightly sour. Palate is thin, carbonation ok.

440ml can at alcohol-free Friday tasting. I can honestly say that this is, without a shadow of a doubt, the worst thing I have ever put in my mouth.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes verbatim on 10/7/10
A: Thin soapy film of white foam over a golden to amber ale with excellent clarity. No lacing.
S: Smells like orange pekoe and hints of tomato. Herbal, sweet, fruity. I like it.
T: Sweetened, soft white bread with a thin sheet of tomato paste over the top. A sweet beer. I like for an afternoon quencher.
M: Bubbly, light and falls over the tongue and burns the tongue a hint. Okay.
D: Nice Non-Alc. Best I’ve had.
Serving type: bottle

Clear pale yellow with a thin head and carbonation. Has a very dreary cereal grain aroma and taste. Not good.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle to glass. Lots of wet cereal and slight corn and vegetal. Moderate cardboard. Clear light gold with a nice white head of small bubbles that dissipates quickly. Taste of husky grain. Very thin mouthfeel as taste disappears in a hurry. Slight astringency in the back. Paper.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a clear light copper body with a very thin fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is sweet and very vegetal with some husky grain. The flavor is pretty bad, sweet and husky with lots of cooked corn and vegetal notes. I always wonder why there aren’t any hops used in these NA beers, seems like it would be a way to mask some of these of notes. Lighter bodied with some lingering vegetal notes and fizzy forced carbonation. Can’t imagine a situation where I’d be willing to cut out real beer and drink this stuff. Reminds me of Goya Malta with less sweetness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared at the Jolly Crispin during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash...I don’t know why. Pours clear yellow with a tight, white cream head. Paper and cereal comprise the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with sugary white bread and pale grains. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sugary cereal finish, some dough, corn flakes. Meh. It is what it is.

Not a very good beer, didnt realize it was non-alcoholic, very light and free and bottled, so oh well
