Archive for the ‘Low Alcohol Beer’ Category

So, I bought a bunch of beers of styles that I’ve never tried. This would be the first of them. And yes, I bought a low alcohol beer. I don’t know why. I blame the blog. I know that this is a bad idea. There’s a reason why there’s alcohol in beer. I don’t have high hopes for the brew, but let’s see how it goes anyways…

ABV: .50%

Style: Low Alcohol Beer

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Low-alcohol beer (also called non-alcoholic or NA beer, small beer, small ale, or near-beer) is beer with very low or no alcohol content. Most low-alcohol beers are lagers, but there are some low-alcohol ales. In the United States, beverages containing less than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) were legally called non-alcoholic, according to the now-defunct Volstead Act. Because of its very low alcohol content, non-alcoholic beer may be legally sold to minors in many American states.”

Random: The things that I do for this blog.

This poured with a barely there white head that dissipated instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with moderate visible carbonation. It pretty much looked like a macro to me. The nose was absolutely awful. I got some skunk mixed with some grain. It actually smelled worse than a macro. The taste was equally awful. It started with a disgusting artificial sweetness mixed with pronounced skunky flavor. This was probably one of the worst beers I’ve ever reviewed. The body was a medium thickness with heavy carbonation. The finish was long as hell with grass and the same disgusting sweetness. This was a definite drainpour. Even my sister said, “Oh god. Just drain pour it!” I will never have this again. Ugh.
