2.05/5  rDev -16%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

I don't usually buy low/no alcohol beer, I bought this one solely as it was a new beer to me. My expectations are not that high but we shall see...
L- Pours clear, very deep amber > pale brown. 2mm fine-bubble white head.
S- Richer than anticipated from a lager, with clear malt notes.
T- Thin, soda-like (reminiscent of soda water), some brief and very mild grains, and then into...
F- ...a watery finish with a hint of hoppy dryness.
O- The Look and Smell were positive. But the Taste and Feel are astonishing; in that they so completely don't resemble beer in any way. Unfortunately I'm going to have to 'sink' this one.
£2.49/330ml bottle. Bought from Daylesford, Westbourne Grove, London W2 BB: 03/07/20

The colour is straw yellow, the liquid clear. The finger thick head is white and compact; it sinks slowly down leaving some lacing on the glass. Some gushing occurs.

The smell is sweet with some clean hops. Wort and some stale cellar notes.

The taste is light and bitter with distinct notes of wort and green plants. Low body. The aftertaste is light with creamy sweetness, green hops, light clean bitterness and some caramel. The short finish got some sweetness and light herbal hops.

The carbonation is strong, the many mid-sized bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Not much off-flavours. Not much flavours at all to be honest…
