Glowing golden beer supports a short frothy white head. A few specs and strands of lace cling to the glass as I chip away at the beer. Faint aroma of pungent noble hops and not much else. Weak flavor of barely pale malt and a grassy hop flavor. The bitterness adds a bit of flavor and an astringent feel to the light beer. The typical "funky sweetness" found in most alcohol free beers is missing, which puts this beer at the top of the list. The flavor isn't great, and both flavor and aroma are quite weak, but you could do a lot worse when looking for a low alcohol beer.

Pale yellow color with a moderate head. Nice herbal hops and lightly sweet barley malt aroma. Slightly sweet barley and corn flavor initially followed by a bitter hops finish. As far as low alcohol beers go, this is one of the best ones. It approaches the flavor and mouthfeel of an alcoholic beer without the amount of sweetness you usually get with the style.

I had this in Kuwait it was not the worst "Near Beer". It had a great semi-hazy golden color. I usually drank it out of the bottle but when it pours it is a good looking beer it almost makes you forget you are in a dry area. It had a wonderful aroma very grass with a good balance of hops. The flavor was about the same as the aroma. There are strong grassy flavors and a fair amount of hops. There is a lot of carbonation and bite to this beer. Overall it is a great substitute.

One of the most flavorful non alcoholic beers; its hops and malt flavor make it feel like a real beer with alcohol; a beer made by the germans; special for the snack and german cuisine, cheese, its clear appearance and smell its over the average; mouthfeel, taste and drinkability are acceptable; 95% recommendable.
