2.45/5 rDev +1.7%
Twelve ounce bottle.
A: Pours a clear pale yellow under a solid one-finger thick frothy white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves puzzle lace.
N: Corn (?), yeasty bread, faintly floral, grassy, faint lemony citrus, hay.
T: Thin, wheaty bread, slightly sweet malts, mild fruity yeast.
M: Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp and clean finish.
O: For the style, this is acceptable and a good starter beer.

Buckler has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and pretty heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, biscuit, and some grass, and the flavor is of sweet grain, biscuit, and grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a touch slick, and Buckler finishes fairly crisp, tasty, and easy drinking. Yes, it does have a bit of that "something missing" aspect that one gets from non-alcohol brews, but this one tastes more like beer than any I’ve tried, so far. I like it!

Clear golden liquid with some bubbles, little head nor lacing. No aroma to be had. In the taste, sweet euro pale malts and perhaps corn and other adjuncts. Has a light beery flavor and a bit of hop bitters. Tastes like an under fermented euro pale lager, which is what this is. Sweet wort and some hop, light watery body. If you like euro style lagers and can't have more than 0.5% abv, this is ok

The deployment N/A beer for the Army for years. I have had servings in cans and bottles. Overall it is not horrible when you are in T-Total country. It has good appearance of a regular beer. It pours golden with decent head but not much for lace. It smells like a pasture with tones of hay. There is sort of a stagnant bland flavor. It has a thin body with quite a bit of carbonation.
