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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.
