Sampled last night on 6/2/14. Comes in a nice 12 ounce bottle. Actually didn't know this was a 'Near Beer' brew as I saw the Guiness 'Harp' logo and never seen it before. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 5-ounce 'sampler' glass.

Pours a medium amber in color with a about a 1/2 finger of a foamy off-white head. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is mostly of stewed grains for the most part. The taste actually has more going on that the aroma suggests and is of grains, malt with a hint of caramel with a slight dry finish. Slight bitterness in the finish as well but not bad. Actually didn't know this was a 'Near Beer' brew like O'Dell's as I have never seen it before and was sold in another section. Overall, not my style or likes, not because it is a 'near beer' but because I wasn't a big fan of this one.

No bottling date.

A: Pours a crystal clear red/amber. Tall, frothy white head. Head fades slowly with heavy lacing and great retention.

S: My first thought upon sniffing it was green tea, oddly enough. I'm not sure why. There is a bready sweetness to this as well.

T: Huh. Some malty sweetness but again with the tea. Some ...steamed vegetables in the finish and aftertaste. Bleagh.

M: Pretty thin as you'd imagine. Higher carbonation leaves it prickly.

O: I poured this one out pretty fast. Lots of tea and vegetables. And neither in a good way. Whew. One of the worst I've ever had.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2014. The label claims less than 0.05% ABV. Picked up a little while back from a discount store.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear pale-gold colour with faint floating sediment and plentiful carbonation. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that persists for a few minutes before reducing to a thick surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of sweet stewed grain and little else; perhaps a touch of cooked veg/leaves. Unimpressive.

Tastes of steamed grain with a mild finish. Notes of grain, unfermented malt, faint caramel, overcooked veggies and a hint of stewed leaves. Slightly sweet, with a very weak bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light and tingly, with spritzy carbonation and a thin, watery body. Aftertaste of cooked grain.

Not very wonderful. I know alcohol-free beer is there to meet a specific need, but this is just gross. Looks decent - this is the best thing about it. The aroma and flavour consist primarily of sweetish stewed-grain and a hint of cabbage water. Watery body. Lacking in substance and character - if I needed to avoid alcohol I don't think I would choose this. Give it a miss.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Nice amber color with a big fluffy white head that settles to nothing with no lacing.

S: I'm getting sweet grainy malt.... No hops at all, good news is I'm not getting corn in the sweetness.

T: No bad, matches the smell.... Sweet malt, hanging on the caramel side.... Really much more flavor than I was expecting from a NA brew. Clean finish.

M: Light bodied with lots of carbonation, has a nice clean aftertaste.

D: It is a NA beer but is really not too bad. So if you are looking for NA, this one is worth a look.
