Honey. Thatís all thatís quite ok with this one. Thin and tasteless and as good as no aroma. Poor.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33 cl brown bottle, bought at Eurospar.
Pearl-white head, some lacings, medium amber-brown body, clear.
Scents of sweet malts, grass.
Tastes sweet malts, something grassy, a bit watery, and aftertaste is a bit abrupt, goes to the sweet side, just a little bitter underneath, more grainy.
Overall quite drinkable, but no christmas spices, no real yuletide feeling.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Mørk gylden, klar med hvitt skum. Enkel maltaroma med noe sitrus. Mangler sødme og fylde, lett bitter. (Havnabakken, 02.12.13)

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear amber, decent froth. Sweet and spiced dough nose. Rather spicy, some hoppiness keeps the sweetness in check. Watery as expected. Having low expectations help, not the worst non-alcoholic beer I have tasted.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Lite skum. Svak duft av krydder. Litt ubestemmelig smak, noe malt og nÝtter kanskje.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33l bottle. This is a crystal clear dark golden one with a small quickly islandy and bubbly off-white top. On the nose itís wort-ish, sawdust and earthy potatoes that plays the violin. Itís gently carbonated and the mouthfeel is actually not as bad as I would have expected. Some resistance and mouthfeel. Flavors not horrible either. The usual suspects are present with sawdust, grains and wort, but it also has a slight peppery spiciness in the finish. A bit sweeter and it has more mouthfeel than the regular stuff. Christmas mood after drinking this? Fair, itís the 19th Jan today, but I doubt it would have made any difference if Santa himself served this to me on Christmas eve. Dull but drinkable alternative for preggos is what I call this. 19.01.2013

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle in June(!) in Oslo from Joker. Okay. Not clear to me that this was Low Alcohol and was laughed at my Norwegian family. Dark golden body with big head. Nose is malty and grassy. Taste is plenty of malt, with some bitter, and dry. But missing ABV aplenty. Finish is too dry and sharp.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Courtesy of Yngwie. Itís dark amber and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of perfumed soap, malt and mash. The sweet flavor has notes of mash and grain, and the finish is slightly dry and sweet.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at home. A true misfit this one. Pours light golden with a small white layer of bubbles. Aroma is not very easy to detect, some weak unpleasant malts. Taste is dull, watered out newspaper.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,33 l bottle at the Draupner platform, Norwegian continental shelf. Pours deep sparkling golden, with a tan colored, foamy head of medium size. Aroma reminiscent of hopped wort. Some tobacco, toasted notes far back there, malts as well. Tastes metallic with veggie notes. Some malts in the finish replaced by the bitterness as it takes hold of the tongue. Light to medium body. Astringent during the first bitter grip of the tongue but mostly bland with an unpleasant pulpy, paper like mouth feel. Leaves the tongue numb.
