0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can, from a small shop around Fanar Islamic Center, Doha, Qatar
"Malted in Holland, canned un UAE under license from Sansberg International", EAN 6 294004 910180; interesting to know, it contains also lactic acid
Blond color, it’s even hazy. Aroma of wet cereals. Weak and dry mouthfeel, very light cereals and bread flavor, unpleasant metallic finish; no bitterness. Even worse than the Gerstel NA that I just had before.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma is of water and wet bread, as usual for a low alcohol, a bit of carbonation almost gives it a whiff of alcohol but we know that’s not true - after all, it’s brewed for the UAE! Looks very piss-poor, drank from the can so I can’t assess the head. Tastes like weak non-alcoholic beer. Very close to water. Not even strong. Why not just drink from the tap after eating some bread? One of the worst non-alcohols I’ve tried, which is saying a lot.
