Seznamte se s novinkou mezi nealkoholickými pivy – Birellem Polotmavým. Polotmavá varianta nejoblíbenějšího českého nealkoholického piva toho má se svým světlým protějškem mnoho společného. Stejně jako populární klasický Birell je i nový Birell Polotmavý vyroben za pomoci speciálně vyšlechtěných kvasinek, které produkují minimum alkoholu, a umožňují tak Birellům projít celým procesem kvašení a dokvašování, jakým procházejí klasická alkoholická piva. Díky tomu má i Birell Polotmavý jemně hořkou chuť, tolik podobnou chuti tradičních ležáků.
Pale Birell has a wonderful full-bodied flavour and pleasant bitterness that give it the heady taste of alcoholic beers. Since it was first brewed Birell has won a number of beer awards, including Best Non-alcoholic Beer of the Year at the 2012 World Beer Awards. In 2015 it came 1st in the PIVEX 2015 Gold Cup in the non-alcoholic beer category in the Czech Republic. Contains no preservatives, artificial colourings or artificial sweeteners.

500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks!
A bit light for a polotmave, this is just a rich vienna/munchner gold. Super bready aroma at first, but quickly it becomes weetabixy and sweet, and basically boring. Taste very similar to Buckler, if I remember that correctly. There’s a rather nasty chemical astringency at first, and whilst it doesn’t ever fade away, you can push it to the side a little. Ups and downs, I could drink this if I had to stay sober, but I’d be making it last as long as possible.

Bottle, courtesy of Dedollewaitor. It pours a clear, amber body and a small, off-white head. Weak toffee aroma with pale malts. The flavor is quite boring, not unpleasant, but almost. Caramel, hops, bitterness and some fruits. Thin on the palate. An alcohol free beer I can easily do without, even though it’s not bad, just boring. 110319

Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2017
Bottle @ tasting shared by Inoven. Clear orange-amber color, average sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, straw / hay bitter, bitter, (Dutch) almost "spa rood". Hardly any flavor, a bit firm carbonation. I really don't know how these low ABV beers can be a worthy substitute for normal beers. Its drinkable, but never close to what you want. But it might be better than nothing if a medical condition prevents you from drinking real beer.
