4.3/5  rDev +159%

This is the first N/A beer I've ever tried.. this will be an interesting review.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a thin, frothy white head that dissipates after 30 seconds. Leaves a very nice lacing.

Smell - Has a subtle sweetness, bread, and grains.

Taste - Just like the smell.. Has a light sweetness and corn flavor, very malty, and buttery bread.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. It's very crisp.

Overall - I wasn't expecting much from this before I tried it.. but this is exactly what an N/A should be. It's delicious.

1.3/5  rDev -21.7%

Presentation: 12 oz brown twist off bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: The extremely pale beige tinged straw hue shows a perfect clarity yet the head lacks with a big bubbled froth that disappears quickly.

Smell: Smells of faint corn flakes … nothing else.

Taste: Very watery with an odd neutral starchy flavour that leaves the mouth pasty dry. Tastes like rusty tap water … or should I say Washington DC tap water. Hops are minimal and the malt is MIA.

Notes: Hands down the worst NA beer in the world. A great gag beer … they should sell this one in the joke shops. Sad thing is that the joke is on me this time.

Pours like a typical Miller beer. Slight head which goes away fast. Mild carbonation. Taste is of watered down grain (corn?) with only a slight hop taste. Malt is there, just barely. Finishes without any distinct aftertaste. Not bad for an N/A brew. If I took to N/A I might get to like this.

My first foray into non-alcoholic beers. Sharp's was among the cheapest. The beer is a very light platinum and the head is larger and more lasting than any other mass-produced American beer I can think of, alcohol or no. It's the typical smell, too, with a light vegetable and mineral quality. Reminiscent of sporting events. I was truly expecting the worst from this beer, but it actually has some good qualities. There's a reasonable amount of flavor and I'll be damned if it doesn't scratch that beer itch. It washed down a slice of pizza with aplomb. Of course, Sharp's is nothing to get excited about, but if you're abstaining from alcohol (as I am, due to painkillers I am taking for an injury) and are looking for a bargain, this is a good place to start. In fact, the prospect of no alcohol is not as bleak as I imagined. But keep in mind it's been a while since real beer has passed my lips.

Very light straw yellow appearance, lacking head etc. . . aroma was cooked vegetables, corn.

Taste, water was the most prominent of the alleged 4 staple ingredients here. No hops, malt nope. Strangely, had some kind of burn/heat to it I would normally associate with alcohol, but here? I dunno, defies logic, unless you just say it sucks, that's why.

I don't know that I would let a stray dog drink this.

Can't expect alot out of a low alcohol beer going in, but hey, im bored and beerless in prudhoe bay.

Pours a piss ass clear yellow fizzy typical what you expect pile of corn slop.

Nose is basically dead corn and light crisp...air.

Taste is water with some stale beer smell thrown in.

Nice and fizzy mouthfeel, same as any macro, alcoholic or not.

Drinkability is the same as carbonated water is.

Overall. The same thing you would expect from a macro, just not filling in the least. Lets be honest, you knew what this beer was when you picked it up. For one, its miller, and secondly, its NA. there are decent ones out there, but this one is just...well...what you would expect.

My first NA. Sold at Total Wine for $.99. Why not?

A - transparent gold with a quick-to-disappear white head

S - non-existent

T - sweet bread

M - crisp, light to medium bodied

This tastes like an ill-begotten dessert. The sweet bread flavor is not welcomed; almost like unfinished pizza dough. If it weren't for my curiosity I wouldn't have bought this. And I won't buy it again.

1.02/5  rDev -38.6%

12 oz bottle. Date code stamped on bottle neck.

Deep golden with a fizzy white head.

Aroma is doughy, grainy.

Flavor is grain and water with a little skunk piss and corn.
No redeeming qualities whatsoever.

This was awful. drain pour for sure.
Thirsty and don't want any alcohol? Drink water. Bad tap water tastes better, than this swill.

2.6/5  rDev +56.6%

Pale gold with one inch of white head and remarkably lots of fine lacing. Nice looking.
Smell is a tiny amount of bread dough.
Taste is pure sweet bready malt.
Mouthfeel is alright with good carbonation.
Overall a malt beverage with the emphasis on malt. I was hoping it would at least have the Miller High Life amount of hops but actually closer to an AB Natural Light N/A.

at my father in laws you will frequently find these N/a beers and in fact i have traded for a few to give him new choices. this one was just soo off though it was not even funny. pale golden and fizzy light yellow with a relatively absent aroma that only slightly gave a light corn and grain mix. flavor again was like carbonated water with a oxidized after taste. overall one of the lightest tasting and pracically non existent beers i have ever had.

The guy that produces this needs a good poke in the eye. It is products like this that give low/no alcohol beers a bad name.

Thank God I was on an 'All Inclusive' deal at the hotel and didn't pay to have this disgusting drink.

This beer was reviewed while on holiday in Tobago and almost ruined the whole two weeks! Very malty in the aroma stakes and a headless lager look about it, it is a malted barley, watery nasty.
