UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 This is by far the best product A-B has to offer. It's actually brewed using malted barley instead of like 95% rice. Also, it doesn't give me a headache later. All other A-B products do. Busch gives me a headache just thinking about it. I drink O'Douls Amber when I don't want alcohol, but want something that resembles beer. It's a great pre-workout energy (Carb) drink too. Have you tasted those energy shakes at GNC? Goat Gack!!!

The best I’ve had in the world of non-alcoholic beers. Slightly roasted flavor, although it definitely feels like its missing something - must be the alcohol. I’d take this over most American beers any day though. I’m anxious to try the Hot Blonde NA offering in St. Pauli Girl...

Now how could i forget drinking this at the company party 2 years ago. I looked at the bottle and instinctively thought...’oh, alcohol’..but no my friends, i was horribly wrong. What i had found was a brown colored, falsly flavored kiddie punch!!! Its better than the regular fake odouls...but an odouls is still an odouls...fake!

If you can’t handle alcohol for medical reasons and are looking for an NA, O’Doul’s Amber may the best out there. It’s got a decent body and a good aroma. Not quite beer, but much closer than almost any other NA out there.

Typical AB taste like piss.

It has the typical skunky non-alcoholic flavor. Not much difference between them all!

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 This stuff ain't too bad for what it is. Tasted decent when very cold. Loses overall points with me because it has almost no alcohol. Not terrible, but St. Pauli NA blows this stuff away. Slight odd flavor(salt???) in the aftertaste.

If i had to drink NA, it would be this or Bitburger Drive. These actually resemble beer, even if ever so slightly. A major improvement over the undrinkable original.

Nasty, skunky smell, real shitty

It isn’t likely to be skunked, as the regular almost always is, but it has its own brand of noxiousicity. Actually, I think the fact they tried to emphsize the malt is what makes this spectcularly bad. The resulting cloying texture just emphasizes the nastiness.
