Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small and very weak white head.
There is not much to the smell, just a weak hoppy aroma.
The taste is initially somewhat bitter and also sour, slightly watery with a mentionable bitterness in the end.
I generally don't drink non-alco beers, nor do I like the taste. This one is not really tasty, nor is it (too) unpleasant.

Sold as "Störtebeker 1402 Alkoholfri" in Sweden. Organic produced.

The smell is sweet with distinct notes of cereals, golden treacle and a touch of popcorn. Some very weak bitter flavours.

The colour is pale gold; the liquid is clear. The finger thick head is compact and white. Some lacing occurs.

The taste is a mix of a fine fresh clean (very German) bitterness and sweet breakfast cereal flavours. The flavours fade quickly, leaving some bitter and sweet neutral flavours in the short aftertaste. Hints of caramel and pulp in the finish.

The carbonation is mild, yet the bubbles are a bit sharp. The liquid is somewhat smooth.

A below the average low alcohol lager.

A: Pours light golden with a large thick white head. Dissipates into nice lacings.

S: Sweet malt and faint bitter hops, almost like a poor Euro Pale Lager.

T: Rough and unbalanced. Malt with sweetness and bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste is medium long and holds some bitterness. Body is light and carbonation the same.

O: Low alcoholic beer; Not my first choice, but if you by any resaon aren't able to drink beer with alcohol - why not.
