Brewed by:
Missouri, United States

Style: Low Alcohol Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 0.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

For this style, there could be worse. But not much worse.

Appearance- Almost looks like a pale beer
Taste- Water with some barley dipped in it
Palate- mildly carbonated, with a watery feel
Overall- Better than Coors NA, but that is not saying a lot.

I guess this product is supposed to satisfy the taste of a cheap American brew? It is horrible to the point that I couldn't even finish it! I know... You are probably asking why I would even indulge in this beverage??? Well... ? But I know I had the disadvantage of pouring this product into my glass for one reason or another. It isn't even for the lack of alcohol, the taste is just plain bland and unpleasant. I guess if you're looking for a substitute of a cheap horrible brew, this works? Anywhooooo ... Avoid this!

Poured clear yellow with a medium-sized, white cap. Aroma is watery and nearly nonexistent. Reminded me of shredded paper. Flavor is again, very watery with a light, sweet graininess. Body is ridiculously light and the carbonation was spritzy. Hey, if I try it I will review it.

Bottle at around 35 degrees into a frosted glass at Outback
Aroma – smells like a lager
Head average (3 cm), white, fizzy, quickly diminishing to nothing
Lacing – none
Body light yellow, clear
Flavor – not much, just a hint of dimethylsulfide; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, aggressive carbonation

Overall, better than I expected. The aroma was the high light of this tasting experience. The flavor and the appearance were passable but a little diacetyl would have helped.
