Notes/Commercial Description:
O'Doul's and O'Doul's Amber are non-alcohol malt beverages.

O’Doul’s has a mild, sweet taste with a slightly dry finish. O’Doul’s Amber has a rich, slightly sweet taste with flavorful hop finish.

O’Doul’s and O’Doul’s Amber are brewed as traditional premium beers – fermented and aged to full maturity. The alcohol is then removed through the use of low temperature, low-pressure distillation. This extremely gentle process allows the alcohol to be removed without heating or cooking the beer, which retains the full, rich and delicate flavor and balance of our non-alcohol brews.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow-hued body with a thinnish layer of fizz up top.

Smell: Just a lone, ineffective note of cheap cracked grain.

Taste: Sad-tasting, limp cereal grains up front with just the most fleeting amount of sweetness. Near nil hop bitterness but zero hop flavor. Fairly clean at the soda water finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied and rather watery in the mouthfeel. Fizzly carbonation akin to seltzer water.

Overall: ...

Poured from an amber, 12-oz. twist-off bottle into a plain, tumbler pint glass.

A: Poured a completely clear, ultra-clean looking light yellow color with a one-finger head of frothy, white carbonation which actually maintained pretty well, but left zero lacing.

S: Crisp, metallic grain and lightly toasted rice.

T: A sharp, crisp bitterness grips the palate almost immediately, giving way to some cooked rice and corn flavors before washing back clean and dry with almost no aftertaste.

M: Exteremly light-bodied, crisp, clean and dry with a pretty grainy, almost sharp mouthfeel.

O: Honestly, not half as bad as some terrible macro light beers I've had. Could have fooled me as a macro light lager of some kind. That said, I'd never reach for it and only accept it as a courtesy to the host. If I couldn't drink at a party, I guess I could find worse things than an O'Doul's.

I enjoy beer of all kinds, really. As far as NA brews go, I find O'Doul's one of the best out there. I love the mouthfeel of it, as well as the taste. Many people have tried this when it was in green bottles. THe taste has since improved when they now package it is a dark brown bottle. (The darker the bottle, the more its taste will remain protected).

When canned, it doesn't have as much flavor to it, and has more of a metallic taste. Bottles are easier to find of this, but since the taste has since improved, I recommend you pick up a bottle of this and give it another try.
