Fantastic soda, er, beer. This was so rich, sweet and caramelly that it was addictive. Lotsa caramel flavor and not at all reminiscent of beer. More of a soda. I couldn’t taste the 0.5%.

The aroma is sweet and malty with caramel, brown sugar, and everything dark and sweet with no hops or alcohol just a hint of coffee and raisins. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The flavor has no alcohol just brown sugar, raisins, and astringent coffee bitterness. The palate is thin. I really think this is a no alcohol malt beverage not a low alcohol beer.

Nice head and a dark brown color. The aroma is like a Danish Hvitdøl and so is the flavour, that is extremely sweet and cloying. It has weak notes of licorice and a lot of malt and there is a weak bitterness in the middle of the flavour. It’s too sweet, I prefer a Danish Hvidtøl.

I think honestly you’ve got to set your expectations accordingly with this one. It’s a low alcohol to start, so it needs to be rated as such. As a low alcohol, i thought it tasted alot like a karamaltz from german (non alcoholic caramel cola type drink). the one big complaint is the bitterness of what i can only imagine is the artificial sweetner mixed with the sweetness of the caramel. Someone else reviewed that it tasted kind of like ice tea, and i can agree on that much. kind of a lightly carbonated caramel ice tea.

My first lowalcohol beer to rate. Like a nisse-beer in DK. Notes of coffee, brown sugar and of course too sweet, but in the OK-end.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Nasty...with strong notes of raisins, coke, and syrup on the front end. It finishes horribly with hints of burnt sugar, rancid coffee and a touch of nutra-sweet. The worst beer I’ve ever tasted.

Bottle. There wasnt anything I could like about this and most of it ended up down the sink. Oversweet artificial sugaryness with unpleasant whiffs of something now and then.

Well, I was disappointed because this was a non-alcoholic beer. I poured it and it was a nice ruddy dark brown, fairly large head, and a sweet maple syrup brown sugar oat nose. I thought that this might not be too bad. Then I drank it. This is tastes like melted brown sugar. Way too sweet. Imagine if someone added six tablespoons of Sweet n’ Low to a can of Coke and remove the fizz. Yep. I still drank it all though.

clear dark brown colour with a little foam; very toasty aroma, touch of coffee and wort; terribly sweet (there are tons of glucose here), short and quite flat finish with some notes of caramel - dubious
