So I was at dinner with a few friends and the waiter was being extremely sarcastic (you know, the kind of dry arid sarcasm that dries you eyes out. No sweat, just humidity) and so, in return, I felt an obligation to return the favor. In deciding to buy a beer to complement my pizza, I asked the waiter for his expertise and he said the best beer they had to offer was this Kaliber N/A. I asked him what N/A stood for and he said he thought it had something to do with where it was brewed. So moments later he returned with a big demonic smile on his face. "No refunds" he smugly replied as I bitch about the reality of things- N/A surely doesn’t stand for Nebraska. Beware, this beer is like drinking very watered down urine.
Bottle from Merchants, oh boy. Aroma is bad, like sticks in a forest, caramel, figs maybe, it smells like a wet log with moss on it after a good rain, grains, just awful. Appearance is amber, clear, light tan head that is amazingly still around. Taste is just terrible, caramel, corn, water, fizz, fake sweetener rounding out with an astoundingly bitter hop presence. Mouthfeel is light body, it feels overly sweetened, light crisp carbonation, really dreadful fake sweet caramel corn water aftertaste. Overall, we do have a contender here for worst beer I have ever had. Even the other n/a offerings had something to offer, but this one is extremely off-putting. p0urmeac0ld0ne (208) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 31, 2017
my mother used to buy me this all the time when i was a kid, even though she probably shouldn't have! either way, i thought i was the bees knees, and i honestly recall enjoying the taste. anyway, i stumbled upon a bottle recently and couldn't finish it. down the sink it went. definitely avoid. drpimento (3755) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Aroma, appearance, and body weren’t bad, flavor had a sour aspect. Tried a second bottle, same thing. Bill Becker (1770) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 21, 2017
It pours a nice deep gold colour and brings close to a 1 finger head of foam. The lacing is good; actually better than many a brew I’ve had before.
The smell is all cereal grain. Corn Flakes, Post Toasties...I almost want to reach for some milk and a bowl.
The taste follows the nose to a tee, maybe a slightly better perception to my palate than to my nose. Cereal grain with slight sweetness, no bitterness. Not at all surprising, considering the style, and not offensive in any way to my palate and, in fact, has a kind of appeal that is hard to explain. Hey, we are working here with the bare minimum in alcohol content. ’nuff said.
Light bodied with medium carbonation.
Drinkability? I bought a sixer and this bottle sure left the scene in a hurry. I’m not saying that I’d want to drink it every day but it does make for a good change of pace. I think this is a very good Malt beverage.

very average amber ale. remnant malt flavor at the end. not as carbonated as O’Douls.

I thought I’d rate this beer as my 2000th rate. It’s bad, but probably my first low alcohol beer so I don’t have much to compare to. It tastes like burnt mash and cardboard. phaleslu (10652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle at Keystone-Clifton, shared by my pregnant wife. Pours a clear light gold, near piss water, with a finger of white head that settles into a thick ring and some splotchy lace and film. Pretty light malts, with straw, soda water, dry grains - yeah, it’s like a watered down beer substitute. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a grainy, light mouthfeel. There are worse low alcohol beers, but there are better. I know that now that I’m having more thanks to ol’ prego.

Can from a local off licence on discount because he couldn’t sell the shit. Golden beer with large head. Aroma of light weetabix. Taste is water seeped through grain and sweet malt. Well compared to the Eastern European Alcohol free beers this is completely shit. Horrible stuff. josanguapo (1918) - SPAIN - JAN 20, 2016
From Alcampo. In Ikea?s pilsner glass. At lunch, with 3 delight rice. Really bad low alcohol brew. The artificial disgusting touch of many in this style is at its peak here ttoadee (1580) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Creme soda pour, 2 finger off white head. Nose is caramelized grain. Bittersweet. Middle is slightly dry with toffee and roasted grain. Finish is bittersweet, little watery. Not bad for an NA beer.
