A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving specks of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of malts and chemicals are present in the nose.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, and has some notes of malts, but chemical-like flavors are present.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer starts out seeming like it might has sweet, malty flavors but chemical-like flavors quickly take over the taste.

Serving type: bottle

Appearance: Decent golden color, adequate white head. No carbonation.

Smell: Hint of malt, vegetables.

Taste: Decent malt flavor, minimal hop presence. Not too bad but something is definitely missing.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Waxy.

Drinkablity: An OK non-alcoholic brew. Tastes kind of like a beer, looks like a beer, but it is not a beer. Good with a bowl of roadside ramen when you still need the ability to drive.
