2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perhaps I’m being generous because I haven’t had a beer in about 2 months because of a medical condition, but I actually thought this was a decent presentation of a Bohemian Pilsener. Good hop/carbonation balance. Certainly not too watered down. Good carbonation level and slightly musky and pleasant aroma.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle at TivoliVredenburg; straight out the bottle. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet tones combined with quite some bitterness. Straw, caramel and some hoppy taste. Quite OK and refreshing for a NA brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
275ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear, pale golden with minimal white head. Sweet icing sugar aroma. Flavour is sweet too, surprisingly malty with some bitterness too. One of the more drinkable alcohol free beers

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, brought by Laura and Efrem. Light pale golden colour, no head, normal carbonation. That usual slightly weird no alcohol character is still there, but there’s a distinct herbal pils hop character, not dissimilar to standard Becks, funnily enough. It is of course the pils flavour which at best divides opinion in head pages. Tastes a bit clunky without any booze to balance, but there’s a good smack to it. It’s fine, not great but a lot better than the scores suggest, but I suspect being a) no alcohol and b) a pils many reviews were decided before even tasting.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle sampled. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of rich cardboard, wort and weird meaty stale crisp notes. Flavour is above light sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12-02-17 // from a bottle to a plastic cup on a concert. The description is perfect "fake news" or "alternative facts" because its just not true. This beer sucks, it has a big offtasting flavour.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle at Great Expecetations, Reading. Pallid gold with an excessive and unpleasantly prickly fizz in the thin body. Metal dominates throughout; it’s possibly the most metallic beer I’ve ever had. I thought at one point I detected a hint of biscuit, and there was definitely a bit of cardboard in the finish. But mainly it’s metal, with a long-lasting and unpleasant aftertaste. Disgusting. Possibly poisonous. Avoid.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Drank from the bottle aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) while at sea. It was our Thanksgiving Day treat. Oddly sweet and bready with mild earthy hop notes. Reminds me of wort that hasn’t been fermented yet. An attempt at a clean and crisp finish with a lingering wet malt flavor profile. Medium bodied. Not very good.
