MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
When I first realized I was an alcoholic, I tried tricking myself by drinking the available near beers in my area. This is one that I bought a lot of and from time to time I still do buy it. Mostly I have it in bottle form purchased at Denningers. Its slightly hazed gold with a loud and shot lived fizzy white head. Its quite vegetal in the nose and also has some grassy and hay notes. Not really that bitter, a bit of pale malt sweetness arises to match up. Its pretty thin with a quick bitter finish.

kevinsenn (1092) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle from a gourmet supermarket. Pours clear pale yellow. Aroma of hay and some noble hops. Watery "lager" taste, with a fairly bitter bite. Very thin body. Drinkable, for a beer with no alcohol anyway.

StuffWine (128) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2013
Poured clear yellow with big white head that went elsewhere quick. Aroma of grain, cardboard, and unripe fruit. Very weak flavour, liken to mineral water with a very slight hint of corn. Incredibly weak bodied, very thin and watery texture, with lively carbonation. Overall, good that a low/no alcohol option is offerred, but not overly enjoyable. My wife did enjoy however.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2012
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Light papery apple aroma. Dry intensely papery taste with apple and caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly cardboard aftertaste with acidic notes. Not very enjoyable. (0.5l bottle at Weihenstephaner am Hackescher Markt, Berlin.)

erickok (3696) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 11, 2012
Clean golden body with big bubbles. Soapy white head that disappears quickly. Sweet, malt extract, bit of citrus. Not really beery and too sweet. Taste is equally grainy and although its not as sweet as expected. Although the ending is of aspartame, it drink fairly well. Not super nice overall though, expected this to be more decent. :( (50cl bottle form De Bierwinkel)
