1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks!
A bit light for a polotmave, this is just a rich vienna/munchner gold. Super bready aroma at first, but quickly it becomes weetabixy and sweet, and basically boring. Taste very similar to Buckler, if I remember that correctly. There’s a rather nasty chemical astringency at first, and whilst it doesn’t ever fade away, you can push it to the side a little. Ups and downs, I could drink this if I had to stay sober, but I’d be making it last as long as possible.

0,5l bottle. Dark amber color. Small head, stays. Papery, malty aroma. Sweet, chemical bitterness, caramel in flavor. Nasty beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Wow, I actually liked this one! Lovely brown with a frothy head. Aroma is of course unfermented wort, but it is partly subdued by its toastiness. There also seem to be some hops in there. While the palate is watery, it somehow fits the picture nicely, and the taste really makes sense, which is strange for a non-alcoholic beer. The decision to make a non-alcoholic Vienna was definitely good. It is quaffable and the unfermented wort manages not to be sickly. A pleasant surprise.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottled, at zlaty drak restaurant in pilsen. not a bad idea to make a vienna non-alcoholic beer (apart from the lack of alcohol). the extra caramel character at least balances well with some old hay aroma and light dusty bitterness. but of course the end result is a feeling of dissatisfaction from the extreme thinness of this beer

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Barva: světle hnědá, pěna žlutobílá, řídká, nedržící. Vůně: jen lehká chmelová. chuť: Hořká s výrazným sladovým dozvukem, štiplavé. Mezi nealkoholickými pivy mírný nadstandard. Přestože tmavým pivům nefandím, je lepší než světlý Birell.
