3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 330ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune foncée moyennement effervescente mais presque sans mousse. Nez de malt et de mélasse et c’est pareil au goût avec une très légère amertume en fin de bouche. Pas mal pour une sans alcool.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the best beers of my Algarvian jaunt. Says it all. Good looking reflective black capped with subsiding grey-tan. Aroma of rust, leaf matter, puffed rice, rye and malt loaf. Some realistic ash and schwarz-like rust, chocolate and black bread on the palate; mellow coffee in the finish. Decent n/a with shades of roasted and chocolate character that shames some alcoholic stouts.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle from premiumnearbeer.com. Pours a clear, dark chestnut brown with thin light tan head - the darkest low alcohol beer I’ve had. Aroma is sweet cardboardy grains and corn. Flavour likewise. Predictably weak body. Maybe a hint above the typical de-alcoholized fare, but still quite underwhelming.

I had it a while ago, but I still remember that it is not as bad as I thought at first. Quite drinkable.

Bottled 330ml. -from Jumbo Cascais. Almost black coloured, small off-white head, grainy caramel nose. Sweet pop corn like taste with quite sweet caramel notes. To simplify too sweet and not good.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle at the hotel in Cascais, from Jumbo Cascais, 12/09/13.
Pours dark chestnut brown with a moderate light tan covering.
Nose is beef stew, gravy, artificial sugars, corn, grain.
Taste is aspartamic, grain, cereals.
Light bodied, thin and watery, moderate carbonation with a little spritz.
This looked like no other sub 1% beer in that it wasn’t the usual pale blonde/gold affair - however it’s taste was sub par when compared to such offerings! SINK !!!
