Two Roots previous alcohol-free beers were really up my street; expertly brewed with full on flavours and none of the wateriness that sometimes is apparent in a NA beer. Will their ‘New West’ IPA similarly impress?
Lowlander are back on our review board with a 0.3% ABV IPA brewed with mango, orange and cardamom – all lovely flavours in such a brew, but using the actual fruits instead of relying on the hops means there’s nowhere to hide if we don’t get to taste them! Let’s taste and see.
Coast Beer Co may have renamed to Brulo Beer a few months ago, but their alcohol-free beer output remains firmly in the IPA style. This one contains two favourites of the modern scene – Sabro and Galaxy. We better give it a go then hadn’t we?
Funky Fluid are back, this time with a bigger 500ml can full of double-dry hopped IPA goodness. Whereas most of their non-alcoholic offerings are full of fruit puree, this is pure hops. We check it out.
A new Jump Ship beer means I need to look up more nautical puns to include in my waffling here. But knot this time. The brewer’s other beers have been ferry impressive, and their Stoker’s Stout non-alcoholic oat milk stout sounds like it should float my boat. Yeah buoy!
Rok Soba knocked my socks off with their non-alcoholic Tripel, and this time they’re back with a West Coast style hoppy IPA with a big-bearded beanie-wearing bloke adorning the can. Will this AF beer also forcibly remove the garments from my lower extremities?
An alcohol-free Budweiser… no not THAT Budweiser! This is the original Czech lager from Budweiser Budvar Brewery. Surely this has to be a step up from the atrocity that AB InBev committed upon the NA beer community?
Straight outta the Black Forest, this German pilsner comes from another eons-old traditional brewer. Does Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Alkoholfrei have anything that helps it stand out from the alcohol-free lager crowd?
With it’s premium paper-wrapped bottle, Insel-Brauerei Snorkeler’s IPA is already looking like a treat, but how will the addition of sea salt into the recipe effect the flavours and aromas in this alcohol-free hoppy ale? Looks like I have to take one for the AF team again…
Loah Beer has targeted the summer drinkers with it’s lime-infused alcohol-free lager, evoking memories of bottles of beer with lime wedges in the neck drunk on the beach. So why am I reviewing this in the middle of winter?!
The Leffe abbey began brewing beers over 750 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2020 that they brought out their first alcohol-free – Leffe Blond 0.0. Does this compare well to their previous eight centuries of high ABV output, or are they just ‘avvin a Leffe’?
