A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brown color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A truly nasty-smelling beer: An over abundance of malt, combined with corn, bread, and a sweet quality.

T: As disgusting as the aroma was, the taste was worse: Too much malt, an almost chemical taste, a wet paper bag quality, corn, and a cloying sweetness. Very much a repellant flavor that falls flat.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a prickly finish. Light-bodied.

O: I tried Kaliber basically for the sake of trying a low alcohol beer (I don't dismiss anything out of hand). NA beers are unpopular for a reason, and not just for the reason that it won't get you drunk. This is a poorly made brew in all respects.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 4/13/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers, Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of cracker, toast, biscuit, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, toast, cereal, caramel, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toast, cereal, herbal, and grass on the finish for a very short bit. Okay flavor balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a dry finish and zero lingering flavors. Pretty bland/watery on flavors but not horrible. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and dry mouthfeel that is good. Overall this is a pretty solid low alcohol beer. Solid balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Considering the style, this was pleasant and quite enjoyable.
