It has a darker orange-brownish color to it that is much more appetizing than some N/As. The flavor is exceptional for N/A beer. This is a good beer for casual drinking.

Best N/A brewed in the U.S. , and that is not intended to damn with faint praise. The flavor is malty with a hint of hops. The most refreshing malt beverage this side of Bremen. When measured against other malt beverages with only a trace amount of alcohol, O’Dould’s Amber is among the best.

This is definately the best N.A. out there. Better tasting than many alcoholic beers, it goes down easy and actually has a nice blend of malt and hops to keep your taste buds engaged. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Very, very nice malted amber. Not too sweet, but overcarbonated to the point of overflowing after the first swig. Make sure you poor it into a glass if you buy bottles. Attractive aroma, wonderful color. Not skunky enough for it to be in my Top Five, but it fits into my Top 10.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 This is the holy grail of non-alcoholic beers. This is as good as it gets. What beer drinkers drink when they are stuck as designated driver.

Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Liqour Store in Calgary, AB on 07/26/2012. Colour: Light brown and clear with minimal white head. Nose: Lots of roasted malt infused with a hearty teriyaki flank steak aroma. Beef jerky. Wet leather. Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. Very meaty and more beef jerky and roasted malt. Quite drinkable however and one not to be frowned upon because of its unique properties.

Again I have to rate this as though its in its own category which is N/A, but it does actually compare with
with some premium "alcoholic" beers. If you haven't taken your turn at being a designated driver and drank more than one just to say you tried it then lighten up. I agree that the European non's are a step ahead but most small town bars don't carry import beers let alone import N/A.

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.

Nice amber red color,small head with only a faint attempt to last.Nice malty aroma with the taste being malty ,mildly sweet with a mild hoppiness and slight corniness as well.mostly this isn't that bad and IMOpretty decent i still can't give up my alcohol but if i did i think this is where i would go for a good all around beer taste with out the hassle of a buzz.

Non-alcoholic brews suck. But this is the best I’ve ever had. Malty aroma, nice color, and an amber ale flavor. If you’re more concerned about flavor than buzz factor, I would recommend this over most watered down light beers.
