4.2/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A - Clear golden color with lots of bubbles rising up. Large sticky, foamy white head. Looks like the top of a bubble bath. Very good retention.

S - Very light almost non-existent smell. A little grassy smell. Faint pale malt and bread scent too.

T - Clean and crisp and light taste. Fair amount of grassy and herbal hops along with some bitterness. Minimal pale malt finish. Slight strange aftertaste, but that is mostly masked by hop bitterness.

M - Light and crisp. Also thin and fairly watery (what you would expect). Fairly high carbonation.

D - Well obviously ABV isn't going to be a problem. Light crisp and easy to drink, flavor is a bit thin and has a slight strange aftertaste, but this is very minimal and most of the time the aftertaste is just a hop bitterness.

Notes: I think this is the first non/low alcoholic beer I have had. Hearing stories and descriptions of others, I have to believe that this is toward the top if not the pinnacle of the style. In the world of all the beers, this isn't special or great, but in the world of non-alcoholic beers this is great. So if you are looking for essentially beer flavored water that won't get you drunk, here you go, and hey it probably has more beer taste than other beer flavored waters that will get you drunk (Macros).

3.9/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear amber with a white one inch head and good dense lacing. The head drops away to a ring of suds that lasts most of the way down.

Smell is malty grain with a tiny hop aroma.

Taste is semi sweet malts with a nice euro hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is quite good for a beer of this style. Plenty of carbonation lends some crispness.

Overall a fine example of the style. No skunk in spite of the green bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Fluffy white head faded back gradually to a thin ring around the top of the beer. The beer itself was golden in color, transparent, and contained a few streams of lazily rising bubbles. This "extra herb" beer smells a bit grassy with candy undertones. The body on this is impressive. It's actually quite solid and fuller then a normal Pilsner. There isn't really any malt flavor, but I sense there is some underneath the grassy hop flavor. The bitterness is pronounced from start to finish. This beer is quite impressive. There is nothing lacking and none of the typical off flavors that I've seen in every other alcohol free pale lager.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pour is clear golden with a rather large white creamy head that takes som time to dissipate into pretty nice lacings.

S: A smell that holds both bitter hops, but sadly also corninfested malt. Some grass.

T: Kind of sharp; nettles and corn in an unholy alliance...
Bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste is long and holds both nice bitter hops but also sharp corn. Body is thin and carbonation rich.

O: As a beer - avoid. But as a non-alcoholic beer not too shabby. I think this is the least awful one I've had.
