2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow-hued body with a thinnish layer of fizz up top.
Smell: Just a lone, ineffective note of cheap cracked grain.
Taste: Sad-tasting, limp cereal grains up front with just the most fleeting amount of sweetness. Near nil hop bitterness but zero hop flavor. Fairly clean at the soda water finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied and rather watery in the mouthfeel. Fizzly carbonation akin to seltzer water.

This beer is... Pretty decent given it’s attributes. But put against canned lagers, at least O’Douls doesn’t have that bland processed corn meal aftertaste. The carbonation is pretty high and leaves a sort of artificial sweetener finish.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Appearance: clear light straw under a thin fizzy head which disappears faster than I can pour the beer. Swirls like a carbonated soda pop.
Nose: very bland and virtually nonexistent. Watery lemon flavored water. Salty and fizzy like club soda.
Palate: thin watery sweet corn and seltzer water mixed together in a bastardized assault on the senses. Fizzy and spritzy, almost painfully so. Salt in the back.
Final Thoughts: I never understood the need for a non-alcoholic beer, still don’t, and never will. If you can’t drink alcohol, then drink something else deliciously artisanal and fresh; don’t settle for an inferior poorly made product that contrary to your mad reasoning tastes nothing like real beer. Nothing. And for those 21 and under – nope, you still can’t buy and drink NA Beer because it has one-half of a percent of alcohol in it. So confused…

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours clear, light gold with a small, quick white head.
Scent is grain, sweet corn malt.
Taste is heavily grained.......water.
Basically drinkable for what it is.....serve just above freezing and gulp rapidly...smile convincingly that you are satisfied being the designated driver.
It’s the only way.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This "beer" always puzzled me. But when my cousin, a beer connoisseur, got pregnant last year, I finally got it! It was a safe standby when the craving struck. I’d never had it until my boyfriend and I got a free sample at a beer festival. He gave it perhaps the highest compliment you can pay to a non-alcoholic beer saying, "It tastes like beer."

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle at company function. Yellow body with thin head that rapidly dissipated. Faint fresh bread aroma. Thin feeble body and watery taste. No finish

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 oz bottle pours yellow with a white head. I was not expecting much from this one. Basically weak beer aroma. Taste was kind of like drinking malt water.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Light, boring, clear, sweet, absent of hops and alcohol (as obviously expected). I can’t believe I wasted 2 bucks just to be able to cross this off rate beer.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grain. Taste is lightly sweet. Corn, grain and just a little bit of skunk. Light-medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not very good. I’ll probably never drink this again...ever.
