It gets an A+ because it’s halal. I have nothing else to say, but I need 75 characters so I will tell everyone reading this that alcohol is bad for your health. And it’s nijis, so tfeh.

Many thanks for this bottle to Erzengel. Standard yellow pour with a head that holds it own. The sweet malty aroma carries several inches. This drinks with a smooth mouthfeel, silky even.

Erzengel (6225) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
green 33cl bottle, 17P: 03:06:13 - 30E: 02:06:14, found at El Khawas, Wuppertal.
The "beer" starts malty, sweet, watery. More watery than sweet. Taste is a bit like green vegetables… probably due to the "nature identical malt flavour" - never had a "beer" with something like that in…. And as this "beer" contains "malted barley" as second ingredient, why do they need the flavour? The aftertaste is not better - even worse. Very abrupt ending - no aftertaste at all.
--> Not really a good alcohol-free one. Due to the taste that reminds me of green vegetables not even thirst-quenching… --> 0/7/0/0

No alcohol, no fermentation. No good. I knew this beer would be terrible, but I was intrigued by it after reading an Economist article about Halal-approved ales (perhaps Halales would be a clever portmanteau?) in Middle Eastern countries, so I picked up a bottle at a Mediterranean cafe. Bad, bad, bad idea. The citric acid and hops create an apple-ish taste, but with the benefit of alcohol sugar, this ends up tasting like rotten apple cider. Without a doubt, one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted. It’s a good thing that this isn’t my only option.

Flaska. 2011 var jag i Tampa och besökte Cigarr City Brewing. I en av lokalerna doftade det starkt av den använda malten. Ungefär så doftar och smakar den här ölen. Några klunkar, resten var tvunget att hällas ut. Vidrigt att dricka, ändå rätt intressant att dofta på.

Ser ut som en lageröl, med ganska lite skum. Doftar nästan bara som malt som man rensat ut efter bryggning. Detta dominerar även i smaken. Inte vad jag vill ha i en öl.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a fast disappearing white head. Has a fruity malty grainy bready aroma. Fruity grainy bready flavor with weak sour mash hints. Has a fruity grainy malty finish.

Martinus (4280) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of wort, caramel, peach, unyeasted beer, draft. Sweet malty flavour, wort, grains, granny smith apples, some citric acid. Finish wort, draft, raw barley. A malty drink that’s almost, but not quite, entirely unlike beer.
(from 33cL bottle @ Tim’s place. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck!)

Psytron (1631) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle from Basaari grocery store, Yliopistonkatu, Turku. Smell of starch and plastic. Golden colour, white foamy head. Watery, metallic, starchy and overall terrible. Aftertaste is both rubbery and metallic. Some sweetness to be noticed. To be avoided.
