My grandmother kindly shared this one with me while preparing dinner.

Very clear, watery yellow, with a thin white head in a plastic cup that recedes quickly.

Tons of corn, kinda like smelling a jar of unpopped popcorn, some definite lager yeast cleanliness and just a touch of spiced hops (just a touch.

Taste is palatable, adjunct lager all the way.

Mouthfeel is thin, or highly drinkable, whichever you prefer.

Overall, if I did not know this was non-alcoholic I would have thought it was a coors light. Glad I got to share it with my Grandma who likes the taste of beer but not the alcohol.

2.3/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

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.

Best by: unk

Golden raisin with a strewn top layer of central and perimeter whites. Smells like skunked hops, some metal and maybe wheat chex backwash. Not impressed by the nose here. Taste is grain, corn, a bit of herbal hops, some sugar, metal. Again, not very good. Thin body with light carb and an off dry finish.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Clear pale gold with a half inch head and a few lacings.
Smell is the best feature. Floral, herbal, woody.
Taste is very similar to regular Heineken but without the alcohol bite.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin and lightly carbonated.
Overall average with a slightly dry bitter finish. A little less sweet than most.

This is the second N/A beer I've ever tried. Lets see how it goes..

Appearance - Pours a clear straw color with an inch thick, creamy white head that lingers for a minute. Leaves behind a very nice lacing.

Smell - Very malty, has a subtle sweetness, with bread and grains.

Taste - I'd say this tastes exactly as described in the aroma. The malts taste very weird with no alcohol present..

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall - This stuff is pretty decent. It's definitely easy to drink on.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Clear pale yellow with a small white head with poor retention and no lacing. Smells like sweet grains, light grass, or hay. Not much else.

The taste is no better than the smell. Sweet, cheap tasting grains, some hay or grass. Watery and thin. Very artificial tasting. Also very bland.

Light bodied, or more correctly, thin and watery. Light, lively carbonation. I won't try this again.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Medium straw colored. A finger of head, quickly gone.
Smells like a metal can of grain.
Light taste, strong bitterness builds but ends with metallic aftertaste.
Light and weak body and moderate carbonation.
Well, it's tough to like this one. Pretty poor all around.
