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.

2.8/5  rDev +26.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Crystal-clear light amber color with an inch thick cloudtop head, moderate carbonation, quite good lace. Aroma consists of faint caramel and little else. Taste begins with tingling carbonation, followed by mild caramel and toasted malts, finishes dry and slightly sour. Mouthfeel is good. Overall, a fairly decent NA beer and worth a try.

This is a premium non-alcoholic lager. Taste is dry, smooth and malty. A little bitterness is there, also. Mouthfeel is full bodied and substantial, but lacking in alcohol. I was waiting for hops that never showed up. I liked this, as far as the type goes. Too bad it is so expensive

2.93/5  rDev +32.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours with a coarse white head that's finer/denser in the middle. It leaves some nice, smooth lacing.

It has a very subtle smell: slightly caramel, slightly sour.

The taste starts very light, metallic, a little corny. The middle is slightly cloying caramel. The finish is a little sour, coming back with somewhat skunky burps. I like this NA way more than the green O'Doul's. It's a good alternative to soda pop when alcohol is off limits.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This is surprisingly good for a non-alcoholic brew. Even better than some of ABs other offerings.
Rich medium amber with quick fading head and little lace. Light to medium carbonation with quick rising malt sweetness. Slight malted flavor. Very little hop aroma or flavor, but has slight bitter bite.

I also found this NA ---ok. It comes in a nice looking bottle.It poors ok with a nice head that does fade-away to some but not much lace. The taste has a malty overtone, some carmal hint to it. This is a drinkable NA, I like it in the bottle while doing something else, say yardwork.

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

This may be a high score for an N.A. beer, but in the world of N.A.'s, it's pretty decent. Pours out to an amber color in the glass. Taste is light, but there is a hint of caramel there. I wonder what this would taste like if the alcohol was left in? Drinkable, but not remarkable, but light years ahead of regular O'Doul's.
