(best by 04/20/2015 - poured into a fluted pilsner glass)

A: rocky, broken-silky, white foam atop a very pale, gold-tinged canary yellow... clear liquid... actually, decent number of messy lace rings

S: quite nakedly grainy, day old dinner rolls, dune grass... seems apparent something's missing (esters, medicinal-ity) - malt foundation comes to the fore, has more of a basic husky, wort smell - smells pre-fermented

T: interesting... little sweetness, if any - actually, it's keep mostly in check by a fairly assertive portion of dry, green-grassy bitterness... perhaps a nuance of toasted white bread... actually, a substantial flavor of pilsner malt kernels, a quality reminiscent of a pale malta beverage... aftertaste of spicy hay and multigrain cracker, no residual sweetness

M: somewhat smooth with light-moderate malty roundness... finishes somewhat clean and pretty dry - does feel like some residual sugars are left over, trailing down the palate

O: I kept drinking it till the end... reminded me too much of Malta Goya when all was said and done - and I love that shit!... sort of beer-like flavors going on, but you can tell something's up with it... all-in-all, I'd recommend this, but with the caveat that it tastes like a beer-flavored soft drink

Pours and smells like a premium Euro lager--think along the lines of a fresh Carlsberg. Not quite as saazy as, say, Urquell, but still more going on than what you'd get from Heineken or Stella.

Tastes like a good Euro lager up front. Weedy malt, bitterdry hops, a pleasant kick of skunk. The back end drops off considerably--not much by way of yeast, understandably. But then a nice weedy and skunky aftertaste lingers for a while.

I don't know what so many people have against NA beer. There's plenty of times when I'd love to drink something beer-like but because of personal or professional obligations I can't work up a buzz. This is is very tasty. If drinking it didn't make me look like a recovering alcoholic, I'd have it way more often.

Clear gold with a small white head. Spotty Lacing.
Smell is light herbal and floral hops.
Taste is sweet bready malt and bitter euro hops. Quite full flavored in the world of N/A beer.
Mouthfeel is well carbonated and full bodied.
Overall one of the best of this type.
From a green bottle with a best by date of 102013. Long shelf life!

3.45/5  rDev +19.4%

Appearance: Heavy white foam and lacing on the glass. Straw yellow with a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Sweet, wet hay. A bit like a skunky Euro lager of pilsener.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sweet caramel with a generic hop bitterness. I did not expect this much flavor. Mouthfeel is also crisp in the head and smooth in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: This is easily the best NA beer I've ever had. Granted, that is not saying much at all, but this is genuinely a pretty good beer.

12 oz bottle purchased at Malloy's Finest Wines and Spirits in Chicago. Poured into my 32oz mug

a: pale yellowish collor, direct pour revealed a 1/2" head that didn't last long with some small lacing.

s: skunky, adjuncts, malt and some faint hops

t: bready malt, corn, some hop bitterness on the finish

m: crisp, light-medium body, bubbly carbonation and bite

o: wow. This beer isn't available where I live in Alabama -- found this gem on a business trip in Chicago. There is alot more complex flavor here than I've had in a NA beer, and could kick some macro lagers in their ass.

I am reviewing this on the NA curve, as I would with any other beer that's not my "style". This is king of the NA beers!
