12 ounce bottle into lager glass; bottled 8/11/2017, best before 2/11/2019. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, honey, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, honey, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, honey, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Mild cardboard note from NA process in aromas/flavors, but not overwhelming. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit rough, but well balanced. Overall this is a pretty good NA pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink; even with the fairly rough bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful. A nicely enjoyable offering, one of the better ones I have had. It takes some getting used to how they usually taste with the NA processing.

This tastes like a crisp and refreshing pilsner. The beer is very smooth without an aftertaste. The beer has a citrus hops flavor along with a nice head with plenty of lacing on the glass and a golden hue. It also has 92 calories so you can lessen the size of your beer gut with this brew.

Good for a NA beer. Rated the highest of any NA beer imo because of 1) good beer taste (better imo than bud light) and 2) sweet, but not sugary taste

Since I quit drinking alcohol, this is my go-to once a month. I buy a six-pack, don't get drunk, and wail in my misery.

Tastes pretty much like a crappy beer, and that's exactly what I've been trying to have. I am just saving my liver for my future. I hate quitting, and hopefully I unquit one day again . :(

You would nearly swear you were drinking a real alcoholic beer. No nonalcoholic "funk". Nice hop nose. Classic German helle lager taste, good body, clean finish.

Surprisingly good. Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint. Poured a clear yellow with a decent head and lacing. Pleasant sweet, grassy smell. Tastes like a decent lager or pils. Would definitely have again!

Comparing only NA beers, BUD Light and Miller Lite, not my favorite Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
The color was a medium straw.
This was another N/A beer that poured with a 3 finger head.
It gave off a nice malt aroma of beer.
Wow! The taste was that of a malt that was slightly over balanced with hops and finishes with a slight hop bitterness towards the back of the palate
The overall taste and body was better than any US light or NA beer!! I'll drink this any day! Thanks to Duke Wilhelm IV's beer purity regulation of 1516, the Germans make an NA beer that tastes like a BEER!

If you have to go Low ABV, this is better then O'Doul's. but these Non-Alcoholic beers are not my cup of tea at all. I need way more flavor in my beer.

Pretty close to straw yellow, white head, 1/3", retention and clarity struggles. Aroma of grain, noble hop very mild, some skunk to it.

Taste, watery, lacking hop content, the mild 6 row is there. Mineral like content in the mouth feel. A good option if you don't trust the water around you for microbial content or whatnot. Otherwise, a normal beer will do just fine thank you.

Look is murky gold with a thick cream head. Taste is nothing more than Apple juice and stale barley.

Nice beer for an NA! It's quite carbonated with some white bubbly lace left on the glass. Translucent and clean. Smells like malt and lemon with some slight floral hop notes. Surprised by how much flavor this has: the frontend is sweet, with the middle somewhat dry-ish with some spicy floral notes. The aftertaste was a little wet, but peppery. Crisp and light body. I think this tastes better than Miller 64 or Michelob Ultra. Perhaps it rivals Bud lite/Budweiser, IMO. I could quaff a bunch of these in the summer.
