look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Lt brown color, medium head. Sweet, near fruity taste, somewhat cider like. Some malts, no hoppyness. Mouthfeel is thin. Very little flavor, taste is thin. There is an off taste, not able to identify. Finish is slightly sweet. Aftertaste has some maltyness to it. Not much to this beer, no alcohol and NO beer taste. BAD BEER!

Kentucky

1.05/5  rDev -57.1%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours (Yes, I seriously poured this.) a nice golden yellow with a frothy off-white head and an impressively surprising amount of lacing for this style. This is actually my first non-alco beer.

Sounds like corn and wheat. Both hilarious and disgusting.

Oh my God, this taste is awful. It's like dirt and stale yeast. Taste kind of like my least favorite beer (Killian's).

Light body, of course.

Terrible. Don't know why anyone would drink this.

Texas

1.05/5  rDev -57.1%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Very pale clearish, orange amber color. Frothy white head that faded quickly. Oddly sweet malt smell. kind of plasticy bandaid-ish, medicinal sweetness. Tastes like a honey dipped band-aid. Strange, unnatural, and I would rather have a coke poured in a beer bottle if I wanted people to think I was drinking beer without drinking beer. Awful. I can't believe the ratings are even this high.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

330 ml green bottle, bought in Sweden. Crystal clear very pale yellow colour, big to moderate white head. Typical n/a beer aroma of over-boiled vegetables and baby maize porridge. Thin and watery mouthfeel. The flavour has notes of over-boiled vegetables and wet cardboard, hardly any bitterness. Terrible.

I had high hopes for Kaliber, since it's brewed by the makers of Guinness. Alas, I was disappointed. Kaliber boasts a strong, sickly sweet aroma of wort, kind of a hay-like barnyard smell. It tastes sweet too, with hints of corn, but mostly just like sugar water with hay in it. In a word: gross.

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Poured into a pint glass
A: Aggressive pour yields 3/4 finger white head with good retention. Clear golden colored liquid. Decent though fizzy.
S: Grainy, no hop character whatsoever. Smells like wort. Yikes
T: Like nougat or a candy bar. Cloying. Where are the hops? Ugh. I can't stomach it.
M: Sweet, prickly, watery
D: Horrible. Stomach turning. I poured it out after two sips. The N/A in the name might come from the brewer writing n/a on the sheet asking what type of beverage this is - the term beverage is not applicable.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Jeez, I have to stop drinking stuff just because its part of a variety pack.

This looks like a BMC. Pale yellow, the smell of cornish "malt", instead of the smell of alcohol, its just stale corn. Taste, more of the same. Like baby food. Like creamed corn w/o salt or sugar added.

Mouthfeel = nothing desireable, maybe a bit of corn on the cob. Thin. Drinkability, this probably comes closer to drinking water than any beer I've ever had.

Sweden

1.68/5  rDev -31.4%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

The colour is gold, the large foam sinks slowly down to a finger thick uneven head.

The smell is strong with sweet flavours of oats and roasted malt. It is bitter and very artificial – chemical.

The taste is bitter and sweet, it tastes a bit like carbonated treacle with bitter hops. The aftertaste is similar to toffee ice cream sauce with some bitterness.

The carbonation is strong, almost sharp, and short.
