Notes / Commercial Description:
O'Doul's and O'Doul's Amber are non-alcohol malt beverages.

O’Doul’s has a mild, sweet taste with a slightly dry finish. O’Doul’s Amber has a rich, slightly sweet taste with flavorful hop finish.

O’Doul’s and O’Doul’s Amber are brewed as traditional premium beers – fermented and aged to full maturity. The alcohol is then removed through the use of low temperature, low-pressure distillation. This extremely gentle process allows the alcohol to be removed without heating or cooking the beer, which retains the full, rich and delicate flavor and balance of our non-alcohol brews.

Why did I bother. Pours a light yellow with virtually no head and certainly no lacing. Smells and tastes of sweet grains, corn, and skunk. Very light bodied, basically water, minimal carbonation. At least it was cold on a hot day.

Remember, this comes from the same company that makes Budweiser. When I drink real beer, I never drink Budweiser. The flavor is unremarkable, but the aftertaste is very offputting to me. This is all that, without the aftertaste. So while I would never consider drinking a Budweiser, I might drink one of these if it's lying around.

Look:
Looks like soda, mostly.

Smell:
Inoffensive.

Taste:
Tastes like watered down Budweiser, without the nasty aftertaste I always get from it.

Feel:
Like soda.

Overall:
It's by far and large the most popular near-beer on the shelf. You can find it in virtually any store that sells beer. As such, if you absolutely must have some non-alcoholic beer in your home for some reason or another, this isn't a terrible option. I'd choose most other near-beers before choosing this one though.

Pours straw yellow with no head.
The aroma is sweet grain and a bit of light struck skunkiness.
The flavor is fairly typical for a light lager with a slight skunkiness.
It's a thin watery lager, there not much more to say. It's honestly not horrible, but I won't drink it again.

This one does probably the best job of imitating a real beer, of any non-alcoholic beers that I've tried. Of course, the only reason to keep some non-alcoholic beer around is to have a handy explanation for why you smell like beer.

This is hands down the best domestic beer money can buy. You could save up and buy a couple craft brews, but there is no point when something this delicious and decadent is on the market. Everything about this beer pisses excellence. The look, the smell, the taste, and the feel of this beer is sublime. You can kiss every other beer goodbye with this delicious golden beverage. The ABV is also something to take note of. Notice that it is only 0.50%. This beer is perfect for keeping your crazy alcoholic uncle under control if you manage to trick him into drinking this wondrous beverage. I have a silly little pastime that my friends and I partake in. The game is to see how many O'Doul's you can drink to get buzzed. So far my friend Balthazar or "Bal" as we call him, has been able to drink about twenty-five before regurgitating everywhere! I am personally at the record of fifteen beers, just because the taste is so delicious and rich; I really could not bring myself to drink too much. I try to savor every sip of the sweet nectar, swishing it thoroughly in my mouth before I swallow the savory fluid. I highly recommend this beer to anyone who wants to have a good time, but also wants to enjoy a hearty beverage. 10/10!
