We pour an entirely translucent pale yellow beer. It holds a half finger tall head, composed of thin white bubbles. A single thick sheet of lacing is left around the glass as it goes relatively quickly. Carbonation appears active, and no haze or sediment is noted. The aroma opens with hearty grain. This appears as oats, whole grain bread, and corn, with a bit of a toast. There is little else to go off, but it does have that souring, puckering, adjuncty bite that is so characteristic of many of the nonalcoholic varietals. Our first impression is that the flavoring is much better than the smell. The flavoring opens with salt and toasted grain. The latter is certainly adjuncty with flour and metallics, but comparatively smooth. The flavoring remains light until the middle, where black pepper and dried grassy grain take off. These pucker the drinker, distracting from the initial adjuncty punch. The finish is with a surprisingly robust hop quality. These are in grassy form tonight, and add to the puckering, bittering bite from the center. The end is nicely balanced, with the grain not entirely pushed aside by the hops, but rather complemented by them. The aftertaste breathes of that souring aromatic quality, adjuncts, flour, faint grassy hops, and a faint molasses, for some sweetness for the first time in the tasting. The body is lighter, and the carbonation is on the higher side, as it stings your lips with each sip. Froth, cream, and slurp are all average. The mouth is left more wet than dried, and puckered from the sour qualities. The abv is nonexistent, and the beer drinks easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the surprising hop quality. This really helped balance the drink, which is tough for a lot of these nonalcoholic beers. The flavoring also stayed true to Beck’s with their characteristic bitterness and metallic yeastiness. This is the best of the style we have had to date, when comparing strictly on flavor.
