JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2011
Straw colored beer with a very small white head. Hayish grassy aroma - quite sweet. Taste is light dry, quite bitter with loads of green notes: Grass, hay, corn, basil.... slim, watery texture, medium mouthfeel, vibrant carbonation, very well balanced, considering the ABV. Bitter, dry slightly metallic aftertaste. Quite refreshing. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Überraschend hopfig-herber Geruchseindruck, dem ein ebenso hopfenbetonter Antrunk folgt. Leider gerät dann das Aromenbild in Schieflage. Das Bier ist im weiteren Verlauf total wässrig und lasch. Süffig, ja. Aber auch ziemlich dünn. Test vom 12.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche johnnyboy81 (1) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2011 does not count
- All ratings are in relation to other No Alcohol Beer in Europe/Italy
-Ratings refer to the new Recipe and new packaging in Italy (starting from April 2011)
The low alcohol content is achieved through a complete fermentation of only the simple sugars using a specific yeast.
Fermentation process is carried out at warm temperature and this gives the product the taste and the aroma of a traditional lager beer, it is weird but it has lost all the infamous taste caracteristic of the old recipe (rotten eggs smells, tomato’s sauce taste) to gain a very hoppy, bitter and alcoholic taste.
It is a pure malt beer, to exploit as much as possible the natural content of simple sugars of that ingredient.
Relevant amount of bitter and aroma hops gives to the product a fine and pronounced hoppy taste which is not persistent in the mouth.
Not enough foam on the glass , but could be easily drunk from the bottle.
Suggestion: fresh is better, 4°C should be the optimal temperature.
To be brief:
Aroma: toast, cereal
Appearance: golden, clear, white foam
Taste: medium bitterness, very hoppy, very "natural"
Palate: medium body, average carbonation Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2011

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grain and wort. Taste is light to medium sweet. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
Regular pilsener colour. Smells and taste quite malty and wort-like. Okay for a low alcohol beer but.. didn’t really enjoy it.

Clear bright pilsener color. Not much smell. Body is ok for a 0.4 ABV beer. Taste is pretty boring though. Koelschtrinker (20404) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
Wässriger Antrunk und Mittelteil, im Nachgeschmack unangenehm herb. Das Malz scheint nur auf dem Etikett zu existieren. Von einem alkoholfreien hab ich nicht viel erwartet - aber n bisschen besser könnts dann doch schmecken.

This tastes like liquid cornflakes... how stupid is that? Maybe with some milk... kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - NOV 4, 2010
Had this as "Tourtel Birra Analcolica" from Italy, but probably the same beer, EAN-number shows same brewery. Bottle looks simple, but good, the beer in the glass is okay. Starts quite malty, a bit moldy, fruity. Finish more and more dry, dominating maltiness. Okay! teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 3, 2010
33cl bottle. Pours a clear and golden color with a medium white head. Medium lasting foam. Light hoppy aroma, with citrus and metallic notes. Bitter flavor and dry finish. Light palate.
