look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
12 oz bottle poured straight from the fridge into a nonic.

Pours a medium gold with a 1.5 finger staying white head, leaving a good film of lacing.

Initial aroma is very much skunk and marijuana, even upon opening the bottle. Other than that all I can really say is it smells like a lager, years and crisp.

Taste is very much sweet malt with some bitterness and not much else. The sweetness is surprisingly very high, being slightly fruity but very much a caramel malt flavor, tasting light in color. The aftertaste comprises strongly bitter hops and the afformentioned sweetness, both present on the back of the top of the tongue.

Mouthfeel is thin and watery, but also crisp and slightly fluffy. Honestly not bad despite the drawbacks.

Overall not terrible but nothing to write home about. It's a macro.

Not going to buy again, but worth it to try once.

Appearance - Pours clear and light yellow with a white, half finger width head. Not much for lacing.

Smell - Light skunk, malty sweetness and faint whiffs of grain and grass.

Taste - Follows the nose. Cereal malt sweetness, slight grain and a touch of grassy hops. Sweetness dominates the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate, bitey carbonation. Slick drinker with a crisp finish.

Overall - It's okay for what it is, but the sweetness makes it hard to drink more than a few of these before moving onto something else.

St Pauli NA. Pours clear golden, with a two-finger snow-white head that left great lacing. Nose is malty. Taste is sweet malt with slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit overcarbonated and watery. Overall good.

Extremely low expectations for this one
Pours a fizzy foamy 1 finger head with good retention, a bit of lacing, crystal clear light pale watery color

Nose light cereal grain and mild skunk, dank skunky note, malt water, a little herbal hop maybe?, not as bad as expected other than skunk

Taste brings more stale cereal, grain water and skunky straw, mild skunk dank like and skunk is only mild, touch of bitterness and herbal hop, dry finish with med bitterness and a hint astringent

Mouth is lighter bod, med carb

Overall not a great beer, but not as bad as I expected, a bit like malt water but somewhat typical for NA beers, only mild skunky note which when I had the original it was crazy skunk thanks to the green bottle

(12 oz green bottle, freshest before 02.2022; purchased single off shelf at Roger Wilco, Pennsauken... poured into a 14 oz mug)

L: brilliantly-clear, pale gold liquid; foam forms on the pour but breaks up in chunklets... no lace

S: somehow a little skunky, wet coins and/or vinyl siding, wet forest, hint of doughy, biscuity malt

T: all of those aromas are pretty much exactly what I get on the palate, with the malt of course opening up, taking over the flavors... bit of back end grassy bitterness and perhaps a hint of toasty smoke that helps establish a little balance and depth

F: medium-bodied, a bit sluggish flowing through, but ends with a nice tickle of carbonation, giving way to the soft stunning hum of hop bitterness... about standard for its ilk

O: overall not too bad... base flavors are about standard; the bit of bitterness there certainly provides a touch of interest... I could do this one on the regular if need be (1912)

This one pours a crystal clear golden color. Thinner, one finger, velvety white head. Average retention. Aroma is skunky, sweet grain, slight honey, and some grassy hops.

Taste follows the nose with strong notes of sweet malty grains, dried hay, grassy hops. It is quite skunked, which should not be surprising since it is in a green bottle.Still its skunked enough that it is actively distracting. Feel is light, crisp, moderate carbonation.

Overall this one is ok. It is too skunked to really enjoy, but seems to do a solid job capturing the essence of the regular version.

12oz bottle - review from notes

This is a good beer, but a terrible NA beer. I don't know what they lost in translation, but this tastes like funky water. There are much better NA options these days

This needs alcohol to be worth drinking

Goes down smooth with just a light tinge of noble hop variety. Vegetal aftertaste, some grass, and a slight bitterness. Cereal grain malts. Overall, this is what one would expect of the style and I would drink it again.
