The non-alcoholic Tannezäpfle is brewed out of an authentic Rothaus full beer, which we specifically brew for the Rothaus Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle.

To retain the typical and well-balanced Rothaus Pils characteristics during the dealcoholization process, this beer is brewed with a higher original gravity (14.5 %) and lower IBU’s (25).

Just like our popular Rothaus Pils, our Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle is characterized by a robust and elegant flavor. Naturally, our Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle is isotonic.

Bue en bouteille de 30cl au Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus Couleur blonde, mousse présente et bonne effervescence Nez sur le malt Goût malté en bouche assez bien équilibrée sur le citron. Pas mauvais pour une bière sans alcool.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - London. Many thanks to the Cad! Pours clear, pale yellow with a light, creamy white head. The aroma holds light cereal, white bread, biscuits. Light sweet flavor, dry and faintly papery, with nips of grass and grain husk. Light bodied with average carbonation. Drying on the finish, with more cereal, husk. Not bad for a non-alcoholic beer.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle thanks to Tom “not drinking alcohol unless it’s Alesmith” Cadden. It pours clear very pale yellow with a decent white head. The nose is toasty grain, straw, cracker, white bread and doughy malts. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, grassy, lemon peel, light grainy vibe and cereal with a dry finish. Light body and average carbonation. Clean, dry and of course easy drinking. Best low alcohol lagerbier I have had.

Bottle split at the pre xmas tasting #Juan, thanks to Magic Dave, 09/12/15. Clear pale golden with a moderate off White covering. Nose is pretty Damn thin, grain, wheat, straw, papery. Taste gives a touch more depth, pale malt, straw, light citric peel, faint bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for the lack of boost.

Surprisingly good approximation of a pilsner. It even has some bitterness...

0,33 Flasche bei Kerschers Imbiss in Nürnberg. Pilsgold mit schöner Schaumkrone. Riecht wenig intensiv, leicht hopfig-grasig, würzig. Schmeckt vollmundig hopfig-bitter und wird im Abgang leicht süß. Bist jetzt das beste alkoholfreie das ich hatte

The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2015

April 2015 - 330ml bottle, BB July 2015, as ’Rothaus Pils Alkoholfrei Tannen Zapfle’. Light yellow, sparkling, clear, small foamy white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is corned beef hash, light musty malts. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation and foamy. Taste is light, a touch floral, a little oily, sodawater, dry finish. Pretty good for the style. Nothing offfensive and has some genuine lager flavours. I actually much prefer this to their normal ’Zapfle’. (2.6)

Dec 2015 - Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell. 6 months out of date. Aroma is cornflakes and maize. Taste is corny, barley, vanilla, cornflakes, sweet. Meh. Better fresh, obviously. (2.1)
