look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is clear deep yellow in color and has a high to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface along with a thick coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: The smell isn’t very pleasant and has aromas of wort, cracker malts and cereal.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and also has a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not really watery) on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer looks impressive when poured but after that it’s all downhill. I wouldn’t try this again as there are other low alcohol beers that are much more palatable than this.

A good pour yields a little over half a finger of fizzy white head. Body is a light amber color with a load of bubbles rising bottom to top. Head dissolved to a thin ring in less than half a minute.

Smells odd and malty. Perhaps a little bread or crackers? Either way, it isn't good.

Flavor is light, perhaps bordering on watery, but you get light crackery malt with a hint of pepper and fresh grassy hops. Definitely got your sweet corn adjunct flavor, but you expect that and can't really take points off for it in this style. Not too bad at all.

This is very fizzy. It almost has the body of seltzer water with how light and fizzy it is. It goes down so quickly it takes more sips than usual to get at the flavors.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a nice medium to dark orange amber. Thin head, but some spotty lacing. Faint aroma of malt and yeast. Taste is sweet and malty with some light grain. I like the malt flavor in this and would consider this any time I wanted a no/low alcohol beer.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours straw/gold with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and low carbonation.

N: Tomato soup and toasted crackers. Seriously.

T: Tastes like liquid crackers. A mix between butter and vegetable oil upfront. The toasted crackers come in mid-palate. Finishes with a sweet vegetal acidity that's akin to tomato soup along with some corn. It tastes pretty disgusting.

M: Light-medium bodied, creamy, tingly with carbonation and clean.

O: Not really sure how this compares to other NAs but it is extremely unpleasant. It's rather hard to force this swill down.

Light bronze and transparent. Minimal to no head. Can see some bubbles rising to the top.

Smell is odd with tart apple and Subway bread notes.

Weak bread character in the taste is overpowered by an odd sour apple flavor. No hops. No balance. Just bad.

Super light feel. Some bubbles. Slick and clean with no texture.

Not good at all. Might be ok for a non-alcoholic beer but I have not tried enough to make a good comparison. Drain pour.
