Pilsner style alcohol free beer. Decently tall froathy white head fades briskly. Glowing golden beer holds a few dozen streams of tiny bubbles. Solid herbal hop aroma with a light sweetness from the pale malts. Mouthfeel is a bit soft and the beer finishes clean. There is a faint sweetness in the flavor, and an astringent bitterness from the hops that comes off as slightly chemical. It's has the typical freaky hop flavor found in most non-alcoholic Pilsners, but it's not too pronounced. It's fine, and better then the typical American Macro NA so if you can find this and want to save your kidneys for another day give this one a try.

OUCH - I dont even know why I tried this. Appaling stay clear, do NOT touch! The average look of the beer is its best feature by a wide stretch...

I do not even know what else to say and can barely hide my dislike even now. THin and sickly in taste like an adjunct lager but without the added benfit of getting you pissed and making you forget the taste.

Not too shabby. Pours a bright effervescent yellow, nice white head, looks okay. Even smells a bit like yeast.

Taste is overly carbonated, a bit watery, but definitely beerish. I mean, you could drink a whole bunch of these without being upset at the flavor, but why would you?

A: Clear golden pour with a kind of creamy white head that quickly sinks into very poor lacings.

S: Grainy, grassy with some bitterhops. Smells of smoked ham. Not very pleasant.

T: Actually rather strong taste, not too far from a Euro Pale Lager (a bad one). Some cheap malt with a corny feel. Grain and grass. Bitter hops.

M: Long bitter aftertaste. Body is thin as water and carbonation is rich.

O: This is not too far from the regular Bitburger (everything is poorer, but the bitterness is not bad).

This looks decent, gold with a medium white head that shrinks to a permanant thin head.

The aroma is not bad but not great, being mild grain with herbal hops.

The taste, though, is very thin, light, and dry. It's watery and has almost no malt or grain character. It's not bland, though, because it has a strong, grassy-bitter herb hp character that completely dominates the beer in the absence of malt or grain. The resulting character is bitter green grass. I guess that this is about as good was one can expect from non-alcoholic beer, but it's still pretty rough.
