Pils

Beer #2931 is a pilsner brewed by Krombacher in Germany. For a non alcoholic beer this is pretty decent. It’s grainy, citrusy, maybe a touch perfumey, and has a nice bitterness to it. I’ve had far worse full strength beers.…

Original Helles Alkoholfrei

Beer #2853 is a wheat ale brewed by Weihenstephan in Germany. It’s still strictly a beer so I’ll include it in my mission. It’s not alcohol free, coming in with a 0.5% ABV. It’s a bit on the thin side,…

Holzar-Bier

Beer #2761 is a dark ale brewed by Hoss in Germany. So much for best laid plans! I couldn’t resist having a proper beer and thankfully it’s a good one, a sweet malty dark lager, smooth and creamy, with caramel,…

Konig Ludwig Dunkel

Beer #1743 is a dunkel brewed by Schlosbrauerei Kaltenberg in Germany. A fairly enjoyable but pretty mild dunkel, tasting of sweet caramel with some chocolate. It’s low on bitterness but it’s drinkable if nothing special. The bottle size is 500ML…

Beer #1560 is a smoked ale brewed by Brauerei Heller in Bamberg, Germany. A surprisingly enjoyable ale, sweet malt, mild bitterness, and a wonderfully restrained (by Rex Attitude standards anyway) smokiness that permeates the entire brew. A salty finish rounds…

Holsten Alcohol Free

Beer #1473 is a lager brewed by Holsten-Brauerei in Hamburg, Germany. A German lager (I think) that is 0.0% abv, they claim. It’s slightly sweet and malty, and it tastes like candy water. Not impressed in the slightest, but having…

Aventinus

Beer #1470 is a wheat ale brewed by Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Son in Kelheim, Germany. A very rich sweet ale (supposedly a wheat beer but it tastes nothing like one to me). Lots of plum upfront and a nice…

Hefeweissbier Alkoholfrei

Beer #1465 is a wheat ale brewed by Weihenstephan in Germany. A surprisingly good wheat beer given the fact that it’s alcohol free (or around the 0.5% at a guess anyway). It’s yeasty, a little sour (but not as much…

Fruh Kolsch

Beer #1455 is a kolsch brewed by Colner Hofbrau Fruh in Cologne, Germany. This is a rather bland beer, offering nothing more than a mild bitterness and a slight herbal taste. Quite mediocre. The bottle size is 500ML with an…

Schofferhofer Kristallweizen

Beer #1435 is a wheat beer brewed by Binding-Brauerei in Germany. An enjoyable enough wheat beer, fairly spicy with clove being the obvious presence for me. Not bad. The bottle size is 500ML with an alcohol content of 5.00% (containing…
