Outstanding, though a bit pricy for what it is, but keep in mind this beer is brewed under the reinheitsgrebot law.

Looks like a nice pilsner beautiful light yellow color with nearly no sediment and a white head which comes to 1 1/2 fingers high. Smells of white bread, not too much more than that, with hardly no malt smell. Flavorful citrus hops and a balanced malt character - elements of floral notes and a sharp bite of hops. Mouth feel is clean and with a hop resin flavor.

You would surmise someone if you told them this was NA, it is that good.

From the 12 fl. oz. can dated 23-07-19. Sampled on October 3, 2019.

It looks like a Pilsener with its golden-yellow appearance and big, foamy white head that laces as it fades downward.

Aroma: Grainy malts and grassy hops. Not much else.

Light mouthfeel but it is to be expected for a N/A.

The flavor is grainy yet slightly sweet, with a somewhat clean and crisp finale. Still kind of papery though. No after taste.

The colour is very pale straw yellow (4 EBC), the finger thick head is firm, white and compact. No lacing occurs.

The smell is very sweet, reminding of lemonade rather than beer. Lemons and dough.

The taste is light. Two flavours stands out: Clean sweet motes with hints of lemonade. A crispy bitterness with a tart edge of lemon acid. Low body. The aftertaste is soursweet, again like lemonade. The finish got a hint of dough.

The carbonation is medium, the fresh bubbles small. The liquid is quite sticky.

I’m not that impressed. Still, it is not as horrible as many other low alcohol brews

This beer pours a clear pale straw color. The head is two inches in height, and recedes slowly into nice lacing. The aroma is very hoppy for a non-alcoholic beer. Spicy noble hops, grass, and minerals are all present. The isn't as bold as the aroma, but hops still drive the flavor. There more minerals in the flavor than in the aroma, and a bit less of the spiciness. The mouthfeel is very thin, and carbonation is a little too high. Overall, this is the best non-alcoholic beer I have had. However, if for some reason I couldn't drink alcohol I think I would simply forget about beer altogether rather than drink and NA beer. I probably wouldn't have tried this if a distributor hadn't given it to me.

I've always enjoyed Einbecker Maibock in the the past, so when I saw this, I thought "shit, why not".

Poured into a pint glass, it's a pale straw color with a two finger head of white foam that settles to a skim after a few minutes. Pretty long lasting surface coverage, trails of visible carb present. Lots of lacing in the glass, looks nice.

Smells like skunky ditch weed unfortunately. Gee, green bottles, hmm.

Flavors of puffed wheat or rice, flaccid watery feel, minor hop bitterness. Finishes dry, could be more crisp and less watery.

Give this to the N/A drinker that typically drinks Heineken... I have taken to chugging one after a bike ride to rid myself of the sixer.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that faded away very quickly, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of sweet, bready malts are present in the nose. No skunk is noticeable despite the green bottle.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts and bits of sweetness along with light hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but has the unmistakable flavor of a non-alcoholic beer that isn't very appetizing. Its best quality is its fuller mouthfeel compared to other beers in the style.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 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 moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of skunk and paper/cardboard, but not overpowering. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Okay taste with balanced pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance. Touch of harsh hop astringency after the finish, but not overwhelming. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is okay. Overall this is an okay NA beer. Balanced pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and fairly refreshing to drink; despite the increasingly bitter/drying finish. Tastes like a Pilsner as expected, but the NA process makes it taste a little weird. Very flavorful overall. Green bottles don't help anything. A fairly enjoyable offering.

330ml nice stubby w/long neck green bottle adorned with foil labels. Drank this from the bottle at the store but did pour out a little into a taster for somebody else which showed this was pale yellow with a little white foam head.

Smells of yucky rubber and corn. Drinks like watery corn flakes tea. Only the lightest hint of maltiness or bitterness in there. A little fizzy which was probably the nicest aspect other than the nice packaging.

Pretty bad. So far, it's 0 for 2 on the NA beers! Having gone into trying these with no preconceptions, the one word that comes to mind so far is: awful.

you have to take this in context of other NA beers, and in that context this is certainly one of the better ones going. authentically german, with a malt character similar to a becks or something like that, and beautifully carbonated and dry. if you told me this was a normal german lager, i might not know, at least after several ipas or something where my palate was a little cloudy, its pretty close. real pale in color, with a decent head and crystal clear. its got hop character in the finish, quite german as well, and the whole thing is real refreshing. my only critique of it is that it has in both nose and taste that classic import green bottle skunky thing going on, not a staleness, but a light or oxidation issue that distracts. its not subtle, so it gets in the way of me appreciating this all the way, but even with it, its one of the better NA beers going right now.

not a bad alcohol free beer. Aside from the skunky smell, I would take this over a Heineken anyday.

this was from a can, so didnt experience any of the skunkyness mentioned below ... its kind of mindblowing that any beer goes into a clear or green bottle these days.

has a nice look to it, glowing straw color that is completely clear. dense bright white head hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

aromas are grainy, grassy, very light but definitely not offensive. on palate is a pleasant herbal quality, some grassy green hop flavors and a hint of spice, grainy and watery throughout, definitely less sweet than the other NA beers ive tried, which I really appreciate. overall if you judge this against beer, its one of the worst. but as a beverage in general i can dig it, its relatively crisp, mellow hoppy and malt flavors, not excessively sweet. interesting stuff!

Tastes like Moosehead and for a non-alcoholic beer that's good enough for me to give it a 5. Also drink it from bottle, no need to pour.
