Prostel pours a clear brass-gold body beneath a full head of frothy white foam. The head retention is excellent, as is the lacing.
The aroma is cereal-like with some minor floral hop notes behind it.
In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp with a very fine-bubbled, median carbonation.
The flavor is also very cereal-like, and worty; and that sticks in the back of your mouth at the finish, leaving you with a dull, stale bitterness and flavor that's reminiscent of cardboard. My guess would be that this is produced using "dumb" yeast that drop out quickly, or without any yeast at all. It could, however, be cooked to drive off the alcohol. Regardless, it's not particularly well done. That's not to say it's a horrible beer, but there are better non-alcoholic beers available.
Drinkability... only if you have to.

Pours a super clear gold colored beer with a good white head.
Smell is very grainy like the smell of Cornflakes. Good malt aroma and slightly sweet.
Taste is a bit sweet with a clear taste of malt to this. Mildly bitter but by no means harsh like some other alcohol free beers that I have had. Flavor is much like good dark bread. Might could be a little more bitter but this isn't bad at all.
Mouthfeel is not bad at all, must be a lot of maltodextrin in it.
Not bad at all to drink. Only slight thing is that it is slightly sweeter than a Lager but only slightly. One of the top 3 alcohol free beers that I have had.

3.15/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Clear medium golden body with a thick, dense head which retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating and there are a modest number of fat, slow-rising bubbles in the carbonation.
Aroma: The aroma is rather grainy, with a modest floral hop presence, and a mineral water note.
Taste: The taste presents a strong flavor of unfermented wort throughout. There is also a slight sour tang throughout, which helps reduce the perception of excessive sweetness. The taste is reminiscent of a slick of dark bread. Finishes with a very mild wave of floral hops.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, with just a hint of carbonation sting.
Drinkability/notes: Not that bad, as non-alcohol beers go.
Presentation: Packaged in a stubby 0.33 lite brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: on-tap

a - very light lemon pee yellow. lots of foamy head
s - It smells a bit airy, but also just exactly like the spent mash from a batch of wort. It's not an unpleasant smell if you brew much.
t - A bit sour. more spent mash raw barley taste plus a hint of floral something. Not bad.
M - a bit malty and not thin and watery at all.
D - The best non-alcohol beer I've had out of 4 attempts in my life. This is better than some AAL and AAA beers I've had. If I lived in a dry county or someplace where alcohol is illegal I could imagine drinking this from time to time as a substitute.
Serving type: can
