When compared to other NA beers this is tops. So far its as close to real beer as I can find. My wife can't have alcohol in the house so this hits the spot when I'm in the mood and don't want to head to the bar.

As a recovering alcoholic it's tough to get a decent NA beer in my area. I had the displeasure of having Clausthaler previously and almost quit searching for other NA beers. Kaliber, unlike Clausthaler does not have that super disgusting metallic bitter finishing after taste. More so, Kaliber is kind of sweet to a degree with the malty yeast, almost honey notes on the forefront of the taste. Mouth feel is flat and liquid, but just having a NA beer that doesn't taste like your back yard fence is an achievement in itself. I drank it straight from the bottle ice cold like it suggested. I'll gladly continue drinking Kaliber until I can find one of those tastier NA hefes, wits, or IPAs.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brown color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A truly nasty-smelling beer: An over abundance of malt, combined with corn, bread, and a sweet quality.

T: As disgusting as the aroma was, the taste was worse: Too much malt, an almost chemical taste, a wet paper bag quality, corn, and a cloying sweetness. Very much a repellant flavor that falls flat.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a prickly finish. Light-bodied.

O: I tried Kaliber basically for the sake of trying a low alcohol beer (I don't dismiss anything out of hand). NA beers are unpopular for a reason, and not just for the reason that it won't get you drunk. This is a poorly made brew in all respects.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 4/13/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers, Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of cracker, toast, biscuit, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, toast, cereal, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toast, cereal, herbal, and grass on the finish for a very short bit. Okay flavor balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a dry finish and zero lingering flavors. Pretty bland/watery on flavors but not horrible. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and dry mouthfeel that is good. Overall this is a pretty solid low alcohol beer. Solid balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Considering the style, this was pleasant and quite enjoyable.
