Well what can one say but… It’s Brewdog at it again!

This ale is a chestnut coloured, non-alcohol beer, with a fresh, sharp grapefruit aroma. It’s taste is strong dry grapefruit taste, without any sweetness. making an interesting option on a non-alcohol beer.

Like a number of the Brewdog offerings this alcohol free ale is very much the acquired taste typically needed for Brewdog beers. It does carry a gluten warning for the barley used in the beer to go with the zero alcohol – and it would have to be called ‘Nanny State’

It is brave for a craft brewery to produce an alcohol free ale to compete with the bigger names in this sector. Look out for a Brewdog Bar.

Erdinger Weissbräu – Alkoholfrei

This is pale golden ale and has a very good malt aroma. It has a malty taste and is quite sweet tasting. It may prove too sweet if you are looking for a German Pilsner tasting ale, also lacking the sharpness expected of some weissbiers.
 
This ale is brewed in Germany by Erdinger Weissbräu, under the strict Bavarian beer purity law. It is a good addition to the available alcohol (<0.5%) ales, a market that should expand if the UK drink driving limit is brought into line with the rest of the EU.
