We pop the tab and pour a brew of clear, orangey-gold. It holds a one finger head of beautiful white bubbles that retains nicely. Thick, patterned lacing is left around the glass as it goes. No sediment or haze is noted, and the carbonation appears minimal. The nose falls somewhere between rabbit pellets and rotten blue cheese. There is a metallic quality, but this is of yams rather than malts or yeast. The malts that are present are certainly adjuncty, with little else to offer. Marshmallow sweetness comes through, but this is drying and bizarre. As we sip, those yams and marshmallows come through strongly. There is sweaty saltiness and Tylenol chemicals. The middle moves through with grainy bite, metals, and a dog-food quality of grain. There is also a raw, dirty honey sweetness here. This carries us through to the end of the which is dominated by more honey, bitter malts, and more of the low-quality grains from earlier. The aftertaste brings more of the same, and a peppery quality which slightly balances the sweetness. The body is lighter, and the carbonation is robust. There is dry slurp and smack to each sip, with little froth or pop. The mouth is wet, from the watery feel, and no coating is detected. The mouth is not astringent either, but rather kind of neutral. The abv is, well, low, and the beer drinks slowly.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was how much it made us talk about it. There was a bizarre complexity to the flavoring, which was somewhere between sweet and bitter, but really hard to definitively determine. As far as the flavor, this is one of the worst tasting beers we’ve ever had. There is a muddled honey flavor, amongst a dirty potato, vegetable quality, and some softer sweetness. The balance of all of this is unrefined, making for a conflicting, bizarre tasting beer.

Weetabix, Weetabix, Weetabix. It needs a lot more hops to balance the malt flavours. That said, it's really pretty good. Unlike many low alcohol or 0 alcohol beers, this isn't brewed to make alcohol, and then processed again to remove it. So it's a true 0.0%. So if you're a pregnant Mormon, designated driver, with an alcohol allergy, you'll be fine with this. It's also vegan and vegetarian friendly. So it's truly a good guy. It's the beer you can bring home to meet your parents and it won't put his feet up on Mum's coffee table. As far as the real deal goes though, this is a nice substitute but needs a much more of a hoppy presence.

This is actually not a beer in the sense a i see a beer. There is NO alcohol in it (0,05 percent is zero for me) and therefore the smell, taste and mouthfeel can not be reviewed in my opinion.

I drink this beer when i have to drive. It is the safest way to drink 'beer'without becoming problems with the Police.

It tastes watery and far far away you could feel some hops and herbs.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Very pale, small cutting head, dissipates quickly, but leaves a small head which leaves some small lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet, lots of apple smell, which is smooth with the ever slightest bit of malt.

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Hard to believe the ingredients, they must really skimp on the hops and malt. This is more of a fizzy apple juice. The mouthfeel is smooth going down and it’s not until then that you get a taste of very weak barley malt. The aftertaste is the only sign of the hops with a tiny course bitterness and dryness on the palate.

Drinkability/Overall: Im highly reluctant to call this beer. Its fizzy apple juice with a hint of malt and even less of the hops. I accept that low alcohol alternatives must be available but this could try harder. If this was a soft drink and I wasnt looking for the malt and hops I probaly wouldnt spot them, put it that way.
