tfredvik (2081) - Oslo, - NOV 1, 2012
Pale golden body with a very small, frothy, white and short-lived head, some of the foam manages to hold on to the glass. The aroma and flavour are both quite typical for a non-alcoholic beer: mostly sweet wort. A good thing about this one though, is that there are also some traces of a citric freshness that isn’t completely drowned by the nauseating wort sweetness, also some vague hints of honey. But of course, it’s quite terrible stuff, thin and watery. Still, this is not the worst 0 % ABV beer around.
[33 cl bottle, hurled down 5 months after BB date, but I doubt a newly bottled beer would be considerably better, from Ultra Sandvika]

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Bottle 33cl. Aroma is sweet, grainy, hay. Poured yellow, small fading head. Taste is overly sweet, grain, white sugar, cereal. Light mouthfeel.

I’d been joking that someone would make alcoholfree beer with vitamins in it. But Bitburger already has! Taste is ok, but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Drive" branded, 11.2floz bottle, BBD: 04.04.2018, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. I open the bottle, and it's a funky skunky beer. This smell eventually gives way to a more ordinary putrid, vegetable, cereal grain aroma. Still not so good. Appearance is good, classic gold with a small layer of white head. I don't know what to say, other than the process to make an NA beer takes a lot out of flavor and feel. A very watery, skunked beer essence experience. There is some gritty grain quality, which is fine. Then there is cabbage too. I don't like cabbage flavor in my beer. Consumable, but water/seltzer is a better option. I'm not familiar with NA beers, so this may be okay within that realm. It would probably be 2.5ish if pure brewed.

Leicht süß und malzig, aber nicht zu aufdringlich. Für ein alkoholfreies Bier sehr gut gelungen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color pajizo de buena claridad y una generosa cabeza de espuma blanco tiza son los más saltantes. El sabor es tenuemente dulce con un gusto residual semi-seco y el cuerpo es ligero con muy buena carbonatación.

Een komische zoete smaak, suiker vermengd met karton en oud brood. Die eerste slok is iets verfrissend, aber die nasmaak bleibt hangen als overtollig vet in een Londons riool. Mondgevoel is ok, genoeg kohlezuur en aardige kraag. Das aroma is wederom wat papier. Alles in Bauschheimerischen Hotel, in de Nähe van Frankfurt. Alles vergangenen glorie, altijd lachen, 'we zullen doorgaan, deze stijl zal ooit weleens terugkomen, toch?', veel wit en crème-geel, Griekse nepzuilen, gordijnen met vlekken, kunststof ramen en nep granieten bar met drie armzalige barkrukken, die alleen op de meest troosteloze avonden door verdwaalde reizigers zal worden gebruikt om moed in te drinken tegen hun miserabele leven.

Nowa wersja - Bitburger Pils Alkoholfrei. Ar: sporo slodu, chmiel znikomy, troche mydla, nieco drozdzy, intensywnosc niewielka, ok, ale nie jest to zapach pilsa. Wyg: zlote, totalnie klarowne, piana dobra, roznoziarnista, super lacing. Sm: wysycenie srednio-niskie, dominuje slod, nuty miodowe sic!, slodkawo, ulepkowo, nic z chmielu, generalnie pusto. Pos: slodzikowo, sladowa iglasto-siara. Ov: slabo, ale da sie wypic.

Powiem tak... no słabo jest. Po za barwą (i ładnym kapslem hehe) to piwo nie ma nic do zaproponowania nawet w kategorii trunków bezalkoholowych. Piana nikła, szybko się ulatnia, warzywny aromat, smak również warzywny, lekko kwaskowy. Nie polecam. Termin ważności 28.08.2018. Pite 16.10.2017.

djoeye (5426) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2017
Aroma; pale malt, sweet grass, mash note, fruit note. Look; clear warm golden body, diminishing pearl white head. Taste; pale malts, sweet bread, a little fruit, some cardboard n cooked vgtbl, short finish with malt burp. Feel; thin, a bit over-co2. Overall; accepted, but clausthaler is still better. [33cl btl 21.03.18]
