Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of unfermeted malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and vitamins, leading to a dry finish. The body is light. jesperhammer (4875) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012
03-JUN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting.
Golden with low tan head.
Sweet malty, bready. No hops, no bitterness. No yeast.
Is this really fermented?
I quite like the aroma, but otherwise...NO! Meilby (11645) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2012

[Courtesy of yngwie] Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, kiwifruit and citrus. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
Going step by step up the ladder of top beers from Iran raters. One more left in the stash. But let’s talk about this beauty, brought, of course, by Krešo (huge thanks!), and produced (at least this 0.33l can) in the middle of Iranian Kurdish lands - Sanandaj. Brownish-amber body with a fine white head. Dry malty aroma, caramel. Caramel taste, but slightly sourish, which actually helps the drinkability. Can be drunk. ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 25, 2013
Canned 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and heavy. Darker golden/amber coloured, small off-white head, caramel and cereals in the nose. Slightly acidic cereals and mild caramel with short finish. Drinkable but useless.

0.33 l can, Marko’s, well mate, huge thanks for sharing! It poured really nice deep copper colored body with small beige head. Aroma showed typical shitty sour and grainy NA malts. Flavor was a tad better though, some caramel showed up over that sourness. Medium bodied with short grainy finish. Could be worse, this is marginally drinkable.

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. :) The_Osprey (8717) - 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.

Bottle. Clear amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel, grain and heavy malt notes. Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2009
330 ml bottle. Pale golden. Clear Medium-sized white head that disintegrates quickly. Oily sweet malty nose. Hints of sweet fruit and citrus. Overall very sweet, but the body is light. Artificial, but comes out as fairly drinkable. No noticeable hops.
