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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 This is my favourite of the lighter non-alcoholic brews. Heavily carbonated but the carbonation is soft. The barley malt is complimented by a fairly rich corn flavour. However, unlike in some NA beers, the corn flavour is rich, not thin. Hoppy but not bitter. This one really blew me out of the water; most NA brews don’t even come close, and I feel lucky that I’m able to buy it locally--it was not easy to find. Look in Arab specialty stores.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 Pours a very rich yellow, mostly clear with a big white head. Smells of yellow fruits, syrupy honey, some spicey hops and a nice crisp lagered punch. Flavor begins very sweet, honey and grains (tastes like a bowl of honey nut cheerios). Some bitter lager hops kick in a good amount of balance and there is a good crisp finish. I drank this very warm and am still impressed it was this good warm. This puts many normal lagers to shame, let alone non alcoholic ones.

12 oz bottle from Salim’s in Pittsburgh. Refreshing and crisp, almost like a beer but missing the fun part. Good to drink at work with food from Salim’s.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur blonde pale, grosse mousse blanche rapidement diminuante et laissant une fine couche sur le dessus du liquide. Arômes de grains, de houblons floraux et de moufette distante. Faiblement sucrée en bouche, saveurs de grains et présence de houblon. Corps d’épaisseur mince allant vers semi mince, carbonatation piquante, arrière-goût de céréale et un peu métallique, finale sèche. Étonnamment bien buvable et certainement supérieure à plusieurs lager de type industriel. Une bière sans alcool de ce callibre doit être difficile à fabriquer. Bouteille verte, 280ml, Supermarché PA.

Got this at a local Muslim store. This is more a soft drink than a beer and as far as I understand, it’s not brewed, but flavoured with hops, malt and some aromas. I somehow liked it, because it’s dry and refreshing, a little hoppy. Imagine not an alcohol-free beer or a Malzbier, but a beer-flavoured lemonade.
As it is not brewed, it’s difficult to rate it. Rated as beer, I would give 1 Point, as a nice softdrink 10.

Bottle from Yours Supermarket, Leicester. A rather delicious peach flavoured drink. Don’t taste no beer, but does have a faint, husky finish. Sweet, light, fruity. Quite nice.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle BB Oct 2015. Clear orange, sparkling, decent foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is light grains, some toffee sweetness, wet flannel. Body is medium to light, spritzy, quite foamy. Taste is sodawater, elderflower cordial, a little apple juice, quite dry with a crisp finish. I was expecting tosh but there’s nothing wrong with this. Pretty pleasant.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clark & Olivier’s favourite NA beer... had to give it a go! Herbal, grassy hops and grainy malts in the nose. Clear deep golden body is topped by a decent, fizzy, white head that recedes rapidly to a partial cover and ring. Sweet honeyed, grain flavour with a surprising hop bite. This actually has some grassy hops and a fair bitterness to it. Light body with very strong, crisp, champagne-like carbonation and dry, well-attenuated mouthfeel. Can’t say I’m a big fan, but it is basically drinkable if a bit on the gassy side. And this one is actually 0%ABV. Bottle (green). Thanks, Olivier_MTL!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grassy aroma, hint of malt, golden amber, finger of foam, some lace. Light malt taste, light bodied, mildly bitter. Pretty good for the style.
