Citrus aroma with intense citrus/ bitter kick

World beer award 2019 Gold, 2018 Bronze

International Beer Challenge 2018 Bronze

Dry/ish review

There's no doubt that Adnams Ghost Ship Alcohol Free is a citrus Pale Ale from the first smell - it has an intense citrus aroma, almost (to some palates, perhaps) overwhelming. Tart, bitter taste almost to the point of being sour. Short, bitter (but not unpleasant) aftertaste. No sweetness at all. Not neccessarily to everyone's taste, but if you like the alcoholic version of Adnam’s Ghost Ship or an intensely bitter pale ale then you’ll almost certainly enjoy this.

Sweet, hoppy, floral scented; light bittersweet taste

World beer award 2020 Bronze

Dry/ish review

Sweet, hoppy and slightly floral aroma and taste, albeit slightly thinner than the best. Medium bodied, smooth feel in the mouth. Aftertaste is Very slight bitterness alongside sweetness. A little thin. Nice.

Light and crisp, citrus edge to taste

World beer award 2016 Gold

Dry/ish review

Light but not watery taste with hint of citrus fruits and a touch of bitterness. A satisfyingly conventional lager taste, despite the absence of alcohol. However no particular characteristic that elevates it to the best in its class. Nonetheless, very drinkable though, in particular if you’re a fan of Beck’s.

Intense citrus aroma and taste

World beer award 2017 Country Winner

Dry/ish review

Big Drop Paradiso Citra IPA gives the first indication of the taste to come with its intense citrus aroma. In the mouth it is light bodied and perhaps slightly thinner than is ideal with a sharply bitter citrus taste. Long lasting but mildly bitter aftertaste. One to drink quickly on a hot day, or after exercise any day.

Light but sharply bitter pale ale

World beer award 2020 Winner, 2019 Bronze

Dry/ish review

Very dry, with a sharply bitter citrus taste that rolls through into the beer’s aftertaste. A relatively lightly bodied beer, without any of the thinness that can lessen the attractiveness of non-alcoholic beers. Refreshing and well executed, but not particularly differentiated from other pale ales.

Hoppy floral smell morphing into bitter hoppy taste

World beer award 2020 Country Winner

Dry/ish review

Hoppy, floral smell carried through into a bitter hoppy taste. Sharp on the tongue, but not unpleasantly so. A slightly bitter, lingering aftertaste. Okay for an unchallenging IPA, perhaps as an accompaniment to food.

Malty sweetness balancing herbal bitterness

World beer award 2019 Gold

Brewer's description

BRLO Naked is proof that you can have fun without too much alcohol. A non-alcoholic pale ale for balmy summer nights. Citra, Mandarina Bavaria and Lemondrop bring forth earthy and herbal notes which perfectly balance the sweetness of our malt bill. And at only 40 IBUs, Naked is the perfect alternative to a heavy hitting IPA, but without the hangover.

A strong sweet smell and a slightly thin, smooth sweet taste and almost no aftertaste. A straightforward and inoffensive non-alcoholic substitute for lager, but others are better.

Drynks Smashed Lager is craftily brewed, then all the alcohol is swept away to leave only pure satisfaction - A refreshing, pale gold lager beer with a clean taste. Perfectly balanced with hints of barley malt, complex aromatic floral notes and mild, hoppy bitterness.
