Tannenzäpfle Alkoholfrei

Does Non Alcoholic Beer Taste The S...
Does Non Alcoholic Beer Taste The Same
Tannenzaple beer i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Rothaus

Country – Germany

Style – Pilsner

KCal – 18 (100ml)

ABV – 0.4%

Sugar content – 0.09g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 3.49 (100ml)

Tasting – This is a 0.5% non alcoholic pilsner from Rothaus. It’s a low sugar and low calorie beer. To cut straight to the chase, it is lovely!! Its a bit fruity which wouldn’t be typical of a clean cut German pilsner. There is also a really nice bit of hops there, like an IPA light. Compared to a regular beer, there is a normal amount of fizz and sweetness. The flavour goes right to the end and crucially stays nice to the end. It really doesn’t taste empty as some early or big name non alcoholic beers can taste. It tastes like a normal beer. Sorry it doesn’t, it tastes like a really great beer. I will be buying more of this one.

Verdict – 9/10. Cracking beer. Low sugar option too.

Drink’in in the sun

Drink'in the sun i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Mikkeller

Country – Belgium

Style – Wheat beer

ABV – 0.3%

KCal – 22 (100ml)

Sugar content – 3.6g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 5.3 (100ml)

This tastes different from the German wheat beers i’ve tried. Is that the extra sugar in it as its quite high. For my money just a hint at that wheat beer taste. Just enough to pick it out but not enough to put me off! No weird after tastes you can get with wheat beers. Sometimes i find them very medicinal tasting if strong. It sort of starts and finishes all on the same note. But its quite a nice note. It’s a quality beer

Verdict – 7.5/10. Nice, high sugar tho

Venture point five

Venture point five i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Nethergate

Country – UK

Style – Amber Ale

ABV – 0.5%

KCal – 25 (100ml)

Sugar content – 2.78 (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 5.38 (100ml)

Tasting – Lovely amber ale, it smells and tastes like one which I suppose is the point. There is a pleasing bit more depth than a lager to it. I would definitely but it again. One of my standards of non alcoholic goodness is if you wouldn’t know this is low alcohol beer, you wouldn’t here. 

Verdict – 8/10, lovely stuff.

Big drop brewing co. Galactic milk stout

Galactic milk stout i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Big Drop Brewing Co

Country – UK

ABV – 0.5%

Style – Stout

KCal – 27 (100ml)

Sugar content – 0.1g

Carbohydrate content – 5.4g

Tasting – A really interesting mix of that heavy stout flavour with the lighter porter feel. Who cares about ABV and alcohol free here, this is a serious beer no matter what. Im from Ireland and have drank plenty of stouts of all descriptions and this stacks up. Well played. Low sugar too.

Verdict – 8.5/10. Excellent. If you are looking for something a bit different thats packed with flavour then this is for you.

Baltika non alcoholic lager

Baltika beer i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Baltika

Country – Russia

Style – Lager

ABV – 0.5%

KCal – 35 (100ml)

Sugar content – 3g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 6g (100ml)

This tastes like a hoppy lager. Its got pictures of hops on it should be a give away. Not an IPA but a fuller flavour larger than some of the pints id have had as a kid. Nice fizz but not gasy. Nice crisp. No weird taste at the start or the end. Youd struggle to tell this is 0.5%. Tastes like a holiday beer you love to drink at the pool. Or Kremlin. A slight hollowly water taste at the end maybe if im pricking fault. 7.5/10

Ghost Ship

Ghost ship beer i bought and drank for this review

Brewery – Adnam Southwold

Country – UK

Style – Citrus Pale Ale

KCal – 23 (100ml)

ABV – 0.5%

Sugar content – 0.1g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 4.4g (100ml)

Tasting – Ok so you are expecting a bit hit of citrus IPA hops. It half delivers and half feels a bit watery. I think the rock bottom sugar content has something to do with that. I mean its a decent tipple but you’d guess it was non alcoholic. Is the lack of sugar from a nutritional point of view a good enough reason to buy it vs a bit of lack of taste?

Verdict – 6.5/10. Bumped up from a 6 for the nutrition.
