Bottle at home I continually punish myself with non alcoholic swill. This pours and ok clear copper. Nose is metallic and light toffee. Tastes grainy, with some caramel, metallic, and dough. Not as bad as others

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a smooth head cover, no lace. Taste is weak caramel malt that isn’t disagreeable. It would be a complete bust as a regular lager, but at 0.4% it is drinkable. Who’s the designated driver?

bottle. Amber with small head. Bland light caramel malt adds just a touch of flavor to this watery brew. It’s not good, but it’s better than regular o’douls.

Bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Nose is barely anything, with some feint grains. Flavour tastes like almost nothing, with feint grains, but really not anything. Not terrible, but pointless to drink.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber brew with foam, head quickly dissipates. Metallic aroma. Taste is watery, a little malt, maybe even a hint of caramel and a little astringency in the finish. Refreshing, not offensive, but bland. For what it is, it is OK.

It’s amber, brilliant clarity and looks still after the quick dissipation of loose light cream foam. Smells sweet with some beefy character and a little tea quality. Taste is metallic with oxidized grains and some oversteeped red tea. Thin bodied with low carb and a astringently abrasive finish. No likey.

Pours bubbly, very light amber...clear with a foamy, off-white head.
Caramel malt aroma.
Taste is caramel, grain malts.
Way better than many low alcohol choices...still not crisp enough, but decent...for what it is.

Bottle. Pours gold with an off white head. Sweet malt extract, toffee, and grain. Gross, but not the grossest.

Hmmm, this isn’t half-bad, actually. Whereas the other O’Doul’s is pretty much a bunch of water with a couple of beer characteristics, this truly tastes like a beer. I could have been fooled. While it’s a huge exaggeration to describe it as "rich and flavorful," as it says on the bottle, you *can* taste some light caramel malts. Is this a great beer? Of course not. Is it a nice substitute when one doesn’t one to have some booze? Sure. It’s actually better than a lot of macros. Color me surprised.
