The nicest thing I can say about this beer is that it looks nice in the glass. After that, I'm afraid it's all downhill. It has an odd, somewhat metallic aroma with something sweeter cutting through. As for the taste, well it's a curious combination of blandness, sweetness and chemicals. It leaves a bitter, unpleasant aftertaste. I shan't be returning to this one.

not really sure how a NA beer should taste, so this might be way off!

its a perfectly nice looking beer, aromas are pretty meh. on palate is sweet corn, sweet malts, sort of herbal, green tea? apple? grainy, watery, mellow hint of grassy hop character. very strange.

Pours a clear golden with a creamy cap of foam. Smells like honey. Sweet, almost too sweet. What's sad is I've had worst real beer. Curiosity pick that I wont return to.

Aroma is very skunky and mild cloying sweetness. The flavor is cloying sweetness, fruit, off chemical in the middle and and a beery/grainy malt finish.

From El Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. At dinner, after futsal match. With Tuna + biscotte. It has the same corny taste than other NA ones, but at least is somehow compensated with a bit more body, bitterness and drinkability

Oh my! That is one terrible-smelling beer. I'd like to figure out what that smell is, but my repeated inhalations are making me nauseous. The nose doesn't overpower nor entirely dictate the flavor of the beer. That's fortunate, because a flavor to match that aroma would certainly induce hurling. Oh wait, I don't think that first taste is sitting very well. The feel is thin and lightly effervescent, although my palate is left with an unpleasant coating to remind me of my recent error. My recommendation: stay away. I cannot envision a circumstance under which this beer should be consumed.

12 ounce bottle poured into a nonic glass.

I will confess right now, I bought this and I'm drinking it for the style tick on BA.

But guess what? It looks beautiful. Elegant, clear golden body and sudsy head. Lace is plentiful and streaks down the glass. No qualms here.

Smells reminds me of honey toast. Bready and sweet. Ever had a Malta before? That's exactly what this smells like. Molasses. 3.5

Taste is initially much like the nose, bready, sweet with honey and molasses, and Malta-like. However about mid-palate it just falters and all the flavor falls out leaving a water feel, skunkiness, and earthy, grassy hop flavor. It's not bad at all really, but it also isn't something I'd ever develop a hankering for. 2.75

Drinks fine, much like a lager, but lacks the clean feel of a great German brew. This is in part due to the skunkiness and the watery sensation. 3

I am not mad for trying this. Glad Trader Joe's had some in the singles department.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of slightly sweet corn and grain adjuncts over the top of a light aroma of bready malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sweet bready malts with a light to moderate flavor of corn + grainy adjuncts. There is just the faintest hint of floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness are present in the finish but do not linger for too long.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin.

O: Not bad for a low alcohol beer - has aspects of both a Pilsner and an American Adjunct Lager. Not sure I would get it with any regularity but it was worth trying.
