1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle into pils glass, because why not! Typical clear pale-golden mass lager color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness, corn and a hint of grass hops. Taste adds malt graininess, white bread, some tea and tad noble hop. Light body, heavy-moderate carbonation, fizzy with almost cardboard malt finish. By NA lager standards honestly not too bad. There is a hop presence in this one not found in other NA’s I’ve had.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours a light amber from a bottle. Skunky sweet corn aroma, super sweet flavor, with a flavor a little like old cold tea, slick mouthfeel. Should have poured it out but at a networking event, thought I should just muscle through it. About one of the worst beers I’ve ever had.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Two 12oz bottles (badged as St Pauli Girl N.A.) shared with my wife and our pregnant daughter on 12 th May 2015 in Laguna Niguel, Orange County while awaiting our 1st grandchild. Looks like a regular lager/pilsner: golden, bright, clean and clear, on top a swiftly fading white head. Corn and general grain aroma and taste, semi-sweet overall with a mild bittering finish. Not the worst N A out there but certainly not the best either. Drank purely to help my daughter and for research purposes.

skunky flat tasting had ok color but if that is the best that I can come up with, you might want to pass on this brew.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Smells like stale malt and hop farts. Taste like spoiled sweet malt and copper. Holy badness.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor. Clear golden appearance with a thin head. Super skunky, grassy, weedy aroma. Watery, thin, grassy, and skunky. Pretty hoppy. Awful.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
11.2oz bottle, thanks to chudwick. Green bottle, 09.2013 best by... Clear golden orange color. Thin ring of bubbly white head, rope or two of lace. Up front in the nose, big burnt popcorn aroma that I seem to get from almost every macro NA I try (especially those of dubious age). Is that skunk? I’m not sure. It overwhelms any other pleasant flavor that may be lingering beneath. Some bready, peppery flavor, mild caramel. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Some medicinal astringency. Medium body, lightly slick. Sort of rough, slightly biting texture in the finish. I agree with brad’s sentiment... "...It’s just... Not... Pleasant." Every time I sip this my face contorts. Very bad finish.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear golden color with no head that lasts. The aroma is skunked from the beginning, grainy, grass, not pleasant. The flavor is sweet, grainy, honey, less skunky, some buttery character, still not enjoyable. I would respectfully decline the next time.
