UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 This brew has a rich, full flavour virtually unknown amoung non-alcoholic brews. It does not taste at all like Heineken, but it’s excellent. The only NA beer to have all in one brew a good body, complex malt flavour, and good hop bite. It might be noted that this one always makes me very sleepy, even with no alcohol...I wonder why? Could it be the hops? BrotherBeer (13) - Colfax, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2002
I've had Busch N/A, Coors N/A, Budweiser N/A, and Miller N/A and I have to say that Buckler is far better than any of these. That is how I am going to rate it. If your Catholic and give up beer for lent, then this is a good substitute to keep you at ease during those 40 days and 40 nights. bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2003

A great choice if you can’t have alcohol...ie: driving. All the taste is there in a genuine, great tasting imported lager.

Aroma- Has a slight grain and malt smell, not very big.
Appearance- Resembles Heineken, the best looking of Low Alcohol beers that I have seen.
Taste- Once again resembles Heineken but with a more watered down feel.
Palate- A light bodied beer with mild carbonation, has a crisp finish.
Overall- The best Low Alcohol Beer I have had.
Buckler has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and pretty heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, biscuit, and some grass, and the flavor is of sweet grain, biscuit, and grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a touch slick, and Buckler finishes fairly crisp, tasty, and easy drinking. Yes, it does have a bit of that "something missing" aspect that one gets from non-alcohol brews, but this one tastes more like beer than any I’ve tried, so far. I like it!

12oz brown glass pry-top bottle. Proprietary dating system.
Quick review: Tastes like a slightly lighter version of Heineken. Off-dry Euro-lager style with that destictive "skunky" aroma and flavor. Crisp and mostly dry on the finish. Like Pilsner Urquell meets Heineken.
For an NA beer in that style, not bad. It didn’t have that slick, almost sweet character that most de-alcoholized beers have. I’d rather drink this than Labatt NA, Gennesse NA, Coors NA, or Kaliber if I have to drink an NA beer.
