Do you like honey water? If so, grab a six pack of this. How they call it a beer is beyond me. It's floral honey water.
Pass.

Pours a crystal clear golden color. Rather effervescent with the bubbles feeding a thin sudsy white head. Aroma is slightly skunky with some, light malty notes with some light sweetness. What I think is most impressive is this smells exactly like a Heineken - I'm not sure I could tell the difference blind.

Taste is similar - sweet malts, slight skunk, a hint of hops - tastes just like a regular Heineken. Feel is light, crisp, easy drinking. Bright carbonation.

Overall, I dont have much to say about this one other than for a NA beer it tastes just like a Heineken. You can crack your jokes about that, but if someone was looking for an NA alternative to the regular beer, I am not sure you can do much better getting the same smell/taste/feel out of it than Heineken did here.

Strong chemical/floral smell out of the can. When consumed very cold it's quite refreshing and hard to distinguish from a standard mass-produced lager. Any warmer than that and it's pretty dreadful. Good for what it is though.

beer 700. my grand tradition for each century is to review a beer that’s generally considered to be bad, but this milestone crept up on me, and i didn’t have such a beer on hand, however, i did have some of this in the fridge. i have a can of this from time to time, not when i want a beer, but to have a drink that isn’t water with a meal or whatever. i don’t review non-alcoholic beers because i don’t rate beers to style, i just rate them in a general order of preference (to the best of my ability), and i don’t see non-alcoholic beer as a substitute good for normal beer (that is to say, if i want a beer, i’m never going to want a non-alcoholic beer over a regular one). however, i figured i may as well tick off the “low alcohol beer” from my list of styles, so here we are. this drink is drinkable, it isn’t as offensive and laden with astringent flavours as other NA beers, but it’s no more than a highly carbonated bread soda. the rating of all 2’s serves a function as a guide: if a beer falls below this line, it’s some seriously repugnant stuff…

L: Poured from an 11.2 oz green bottle. Pale, translucent gold with a bubbly white head that fades quickly.
S: Classic Heineken skunk and sweetness
T: Very light malt and hops
F: Thin and watery. Although the ample carbonation helps.
O: Would have been a good NA five years ago as it doesn’t have that awful aftertaste. Now with better NA options, nothing to seek out.

Pours a nice golden lager yellow. Smells like sweet corn like a typical AAL. Taste-wise it has the same malt and light hop characteristics of a macrobrew lager but without the alcohol bite. For what it is, not bad. You could definitely trick someone into thinking this is just a light beer.

Poured from 12oz green bottle into a dimpled mug. Best by June 2022.

Appearance: totally clear body with a light golden hue and a thin finger of fizzy ivory foam atop. Not much head retention, but appropriate to the style.

Smell: quite malty and rather sweet-smelling. Not skunky at all despite the green bottle. A fairly reasonable replication of the European lager style.

Taste: lightly malty with perhaps a hint of hops and a minimal aftertaste. It's rather thin, but overall, a reasonable approximation of the style it is emulating.

Mouthfeel: very light, although not the worst body I've experienced in an NA beer. The carbonation level is high and adds a little creaminess.

Overall: not bad for what it is. If you are into slightly sweetish continental pale lagers, this might well be your jam.

6oz mini can poured into a tulip

A- pours a clear straw color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- smells of spent grain and straw, not much else

T- slightly sweet up front with a hint of grainy malt, the finish gives a hint of bitterness, with a clean linger

M- light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp dry finish

O- very little, but no offensive flavors. The low alcohol beer category has come a long way in the past few years and this doesn't compare with some of the better examples. It's not bad though

A: a clear yellow with a white head

S: smells like your basic lager. Slightly sweet with a hint of straw.

T: sweet with prepaid a touch of corn, slight bitterness in the finish.

M: medium body with moderate carbonation, a little cooking in the finish.

O: I mean this tastes just like a light macro lager. I'd be curious to do a blind taste test with it.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours golden yellow with a small fluffy white head. Smells of cereal grain, not much else. Tastes of plain grain, watery, but not overly so. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an average non alcoholic beer.

12 Oz bottle BB October 2021
No glassware. Drank from the bottle

Been working my way through a 6 pack this week. For my actual review I'm going to drink it exactly like I used to drink regular Heineken back in the day. Straight out of the bottle and chilled. (However I took notes when I had one with glassware a few days ago that is reflected in some aspects of this review.)


Poured a clear pale yellow body with a white head No retention or lacing. Visible carbonation bubbles noted

Smell is not very prominent but what I'm getting is faint corn along with some grain notes.

Taste doesn't follow the nose at all. There is sweetness here that reminds me of bandana flavored taffy
While the smell had a few tendencies of regular Heineken the taste was totally different. Not bad but definitely didn't taste like a Heineken. Or the smell.

Lively and well carbonated feel seemed about right.

Not a bad NA.. While it DID NOT tastes like a real Heineken it did have a few things going for it. I liked the fact that there was no horrible vegetable wort scent that haunts some NA beers. And I enjoyed the carbonation. In a restaurant or bar with limited NA choices I'd have it over O"douls or Sharp's in a heartbeat ...

330 ml green bottle, from Helgø Meny Maxi, Sandnes. Crystal clear pale golden colour, moderate white head. The aroma has first some fresh and typical Heineken notes of lightstruck hops, before the more usual n/a beer features of cooked vegetables and baby porridge take over, but not as extreme as in some other n/a beers. Thin mouthfeel as expected. The flavour is fairly dry with some hops, and the beer is not undrinkable, okay with a meal.

I'm rating in comparison to other N/A beers, and this is surprisingly one of the best options and -- at $14/12 pack at Binnys or Sal's -- one of the most budget friendly. I find that if I open a beer right after work, I tend to drink it quickly. So I use this as a starter and can therefore slowly enjoy the real beer I've paired with dinner.

Purchased as a can from Kroger for $1.69. Poured into a pils glass.

L - Pours pale straw with a poofy 3-finger eggshell head. Looks like this is going to be a bubbly one.
S - Banana is surprisingly upfront. As I let it set a bit, it starts to smell more of hay, almond, and a faint fruit.
T - Very sweet. Malty for sure. Raisin bran would be the closest description. Vague notes of honey, as well.
F - As expected. Quite carbonated, and refreshing. Very clean on the exit.
O - This is pretty funny, actually. Heineken managed to make not only a non-alcoholic variant taste better than their flagship product, but also made one of the best-tasting malt beverages I've ever had. I should be upfront here - THIS DOES NOT TASTE LIKE HEINEKEN. As such, I'm reviewing it based purely on its own merits. If you're a fan of Malta Goya but wish it was 10x more refreshing, Heineken 0.0 is for you. I do appreciate their work on the can's labeling, though. If you were at a party with a can of this stuff, nobody would bat an eye that it's 0%. Quite enjoyable, and will definitely buy again.

I got this in the can. I've never been happy with any Heineken brand product in the bottle but the beer is perfectly okay in the car as a switch up. So , when I saw this in cans I bought a sixer. These are 11.2 ounce cans? Saving .8 ounces? Most of the cheap beers I consume at my local are in 16oz cans so why a "premium" brand only 11.2? Nevermind.

L: Faint yellow with light carbonation and no head but a nice lace around the glass.
S: Apple cider. Grain? Nope. Apple cider. Maybe a remnant of regular Heineken but that's being nice.
F: Soda water with a tease of burn on the swallow. A sweetness as well at the edge.
T: It's better than other N/A beers and supposedly has not even .5% ABV Hey! That's where my .8 ounces of beer went. Hmmm. Yes, it's faintly like drinking a Heineken. The foam and feel seem like a beer. The apples are there as well. This is adult soda pop that most would only drink to look like they are drinking something. You could do far worse but if I could get a Old Milwaukee N/A or a Kaliber, those are better choices.
