1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a light golden color with a medium white head that went away fairly quick. Aroma was hay, a bit of sweet malt and some rice. Flavor was a bit of malt and some sourness. Tasted like a lot of other macros to me but was actually better than some I have had.
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2017 Aroma is hay and grass. A bit of a yeastiness came out as it warmed. Rather muted. Clear yellow with golden depth and a full white head that faces quickly to a collar. Taste is hay, with moderate bitterness. Some aspects of smoothness in the back. An off lemon-polish aspect at the death. Certainly, there are worse NAs than this. [p.s. - raising the score a bit as I had a couple more of these as my brother left a twelve pack and they are sitting around. There is a rounded flavor to this and it lacks many of the harsh characteristics of many NAs and even cheap lagers. Have to say, his text to me that it is the first NA that taste like the real one scared me a bit.] [p.p.s.....may I never re-rate another non-alc in my life!] Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Can. Brilliantly clear straw yellow. Tall white foamy headstand. Aroma of hay, corn, grass, grain. Flavor is corn, grass, cardboard, grains. Low bitterness. Light bodied. For what it is, it’s not bad. Not great by any means but not bad either. badpuppy69 (321) - orange, California, USA - FEB 20, 2017
I am rating this beer in comparison to what’s available not compared to alcoholic beer. Pours a light clear gold color with big head that settled down quickly to a minimal head. Aroma is of yeast and light malts. Taste follows the aroma and has a light mouth feel. Taste slightly sweet . very similar to Pabst Blue ribbon without a slight alcohol smoothness and taste. If you wouldn’t know it you might not no its none alcoholic beer. rondphoto (4448) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2017
can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light-medium amber, ivory head that shrinks to a cover, waves of lace. Taste is mild malt, light carbonation, and minimal hops. Actually quite drinkable as an NA,, but well short of traditional brews. furthur (1193) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Straight outa the can, ’cause that’s the way you do it. Yellow, fizzy, taste of corn and aluminum.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.
This beer is a very thin yellow color with a small white head.
It has almost no aroma.
The taste is actually not bad for a non-alcoholic brew, it has a faint beer flavor and it doesn’t have that often characteristic bad aftertaste
Overall: this brew certainly would work for someone who is the designated driver and it is much better than O’Doul’s and Coors N/A. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12oz can, thanks to Chudwick. Date on bottom of the can reads Dec 08 14. Wow, I dig that there’s actually a legible date under this thing. Clear pale golden color, with some bigger bubbles on the side of the glass. Bigger airy white head upon pouring, that audibly fizzes away to a respectable thin (albeit bubbly and airy) amount, leaving some splotches of lace. Big bready burnt popcorn aroma that I’m beginning to associate with these NAs. What is that about? Just an intense, rough corn flavor that doesn’t ferment out? Definitely seeing a pattern, here. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, and a sort of rough spicy bite. Seems to have a better doughy malt profile than other NAs I’ve recently tasted, though. Medium body, sort of slick, with a rough texture to it. Sort of soft, lighter carbonation. Leaves a sort of dry roughness on my teeth. Overall, disappointing and bad in the way most macro NAs are. I think I like this one slightly better than most, it’s not 100% repulsive. Maybe it’s fresher? Got to love the date codes. Cybercat (5838) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a thick and frothy eggshell head. Average, but acceptable. Aroma is barely noticeable, malty and a bit fruity, not at all impressive. Malty flavor seems watered down - might as well be water with a little beer mixed in. Texture is watery and barely fizzy. Well, I had to try it. Nein danke - gimme a Sweetwater.

12oz can into tall table glass. Nose is wet bread and grain. Flavor-wise, hands down the lightest NA I’ve ever had. Slight grassy aftertaste. Not that any beer can ever satisfy, but this doesn’t even satisfy as a non-alcoholic beer. Just added a drop of liquid smoke and a dash of cayenne pepper. Now that’s a beer. puboflyons (3433) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 26, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped on the bottom with NOV1913-B07061928. It pours a ridiculously carbonated pale yellow to nearly clear but the head does not last long. Like all L/A-N/A’s I get that overly malted aroma and no sign of alcohol anywhere. Thin watery body. Again, loads of malts in the taste and no hop finish. It is what it is. Only 58 calories.
