Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Big thanks to Erzengel for this rare country tick! Clear golden with no head. Aroma of cardboard, cooked cereals and grapes. Sweet flavor with wet cardboard, cooked cereals and grape juice. Very thin. Pretty awful. The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Mar 2015 - "320+5ml" bottle. Clear reddy brown, lightly sparkling, small head doesn’t endure at all. Aroma is damp, slightly sour, maybe some coffee bean but very toned down. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, foamy. Taste is sweet malts, like a thinner and less sweet version of ’Malta’. (1.6) I also tried the peach version, which is unrateable and is similar but has a pleasant peachiness to it. I would have given it (2.4). Neither are beers really.

Shared 320 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen1. Brown colour, low off-white head. Unpleasant aroma of unfermented wort, wet cardboard and damp basement. Thin body. Flavour of unfermented diluted wort, but not as sweet as I feared. Hardly any noticeable hops. Oh well, a new "beer" country for me ... Holmen2 (4308) - NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared bottle at RB/HD home at OGJ 03.03.15. Very pale and clear nutty brown. Exeptionally quickly disappearing off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and malt extract. Overly sweet taste, also with chocolate. Sodaish. abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015

Nytt og eksotisk land! På hytta i vinterferien, kjøpt på iransk butikk i Rantzausgade. Vammel, søtlig lukt av råtnende frukt. Klar dyp farge med filmskum. Vørterøl smaker bedre enn dette. RobertDale (6985) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 26, 2015
320 ml. bottle. Thanks Gabriel. Pours a clear golden red with a small beige head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is malt and apples (I think). Very sweet. Ugh. Tinco (623) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2014
Iran! Had a lot of different ’beers’ in Iran i.e. non alcoholic malt beverages. If you think of them as sodas with malt taste you won’t be disappointed. Of all the flavors I tried in liked the peach one best! Perfect with a falafel sandwich. Taste is generally a thin malt body with fruit flavor added. Apparently it is popular for Iranians to buy the non alcohol malt version and add baking yeast to make their own brew :). Istak and Heyday are available almost everywhere. I tried : lemon, peach, melon, pomegranate, malt and grape. Melon was weiiiird. :)
