There's no confusion or mistake, this is a skunk monster from the second you pop the cap. Maybe it is a skunk-resemblance monster, but it is there. For goodness' sake, drink it straight from the bottle and avoid nosing this beer.

Pours nice pale golden with white frothy head. Good appearance. Tastes chalky-malty, light flavored, light bodied, with decent carbonation. Finishes corn sugary sweet.

Oh god, the nose... it is unyielding.

Pours to a generous head that persists. Color is pale straw. Aroma is skunky and rubbery to the point I almost gave up. There are some nice wort-like malt and noble hop aromas in there once the skunk dissipates in the nasal passages. Unlike most green bottle beers the skunk aroma does not decrease much over time. Flavor is pretty good with some sticky pale malt and noble hop flavors to make it enjoyable. Mouthfeel is light, slightly wort-y and not as rough as other NAs. Overall, good as NAs go but the mercaptans in the nose nearly killed the deal.

St. Pauli NA is a way better beer than O'Douls . way better taste way better smell. I would prefer a heavy beer but they don't make NA stout beers but the most beer that is close to a stout is Kaliber which is made by Guinness also there is Malta which is supposed be a good beer.

1.6/5  rDev -30.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

Appearance - good clarity to the straw color. Nice finger of sticky white foamage. Good lacing, too.

Aroma - extremely skunky. DGB on the scene. Yuck. That does dissipate some, allowing some strong veggie character through. Good enough to get off the schneid, but just barely.

Taste - sweet and vegetal. It's a good thing I'm thirsty or this would be an instant DP. Like a pils with no saaz, they could have at least amped that part up. Almost a salty taste as I bang the last half down with prejudice due to misconduct on the part of this beer. The aftertaste is a punishing mix of shallow sweetness, bubbles, and veggies.

Mouthfeel - slickish, good carbonation at least makes for some fizz. Body is light enough to have a reasonably refreshing feel.

Overall - no thank you, I shall pass.

12oz bottle into SA perfect pint.

A: Pours a few shades yellower than water, crystal clear, with a huge soft, dense, bright white head that stuck around for a long while before fading into a very rocky and thick film that left sticky rocky lace. Very impressive actually.
S: Strong notes of dry grains pretty much dominate. Sweet notes of honey and wort-like malt extract poke through as well. Smells like beer while its still wort in the kettle, in a good way.
T: More sweet honey tastes mixed with cracked grains and biscuity yeast. The finish is sweet and wort-like and the aftertaste is drying with flavors of bready wheat and oats.
M: Medium-light body, soft fuzzy carbonation, slick, chew mouthfeel.
O: As far as pale lagers go this is better than some of the alcoholic ones. A bit to sweet for me to love though, but I actually wouldn't mind drinking this again.
