400ml bottle. Ruby deep, lasting beige head. Odd cabbage and candy sugar aroma. OK in mouth, lots of candy sugar. Bit sweet. In fact too sweet. No real hop.

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.
