A refreshing alternative

I was pleasantly surprised when I went into the pub local to my work and they were able to offer me something other than Beck's Blue. I've had a fair few bottles of this previously and it really is a well made NAB lager that goes well with food or on its own. Heineken have used their clout to get it sold in many retail stores and bars etc, and this is no bad thing. Indeed, in the pub I was in there were posters everywhere. I hope that it doesn't simply replace Beck's Blue, but instead becomes a gateway NAB, prompting more people to try other non-alcoholic offerings.

Reliably Average Lager (in a good way)

It looks like the classic Heineken beverage, and of course is best served cold, (and even better ice cold as they do in the Netherlands). At cold temperatures it is just as easy to drink and refreshing as the original. Not as complex as some 'fancy' lagers, but if you just want to sit down and watch some footy without compromising your ability to give the kids a lift to yet another birthday party this is a reliable option!

A Bit Malty

What an unexpected pleasure to find non-alcoholic beer, on tap, in Scarborough of all places! I’m not a regular lager drinker these days, although I do enjoy the occasional cold Kronenbourg on a warm summer’s day.

However, when faced with the usual choice of sugary soft drinks or their low-sugar counterparts, I was almost delighted to find that I could enjoy a pint of nice cold beer whilst listening to a local jazz trio.

Heineken 0.0 is really very normal. And I say that as a compliment. Ok, so it’s not exactly like the original, and the ‘malty notes’ (as the official blurb puts it) may be a little off-putting to some. But for me, Heineken are hitting all the right notes.

Not too fizzy, and with a reasonable head that seemed to last quite well, Heineken’s attempt at a non-alcoholic lager is, in my mind, a success. I’ve been hearing good things about the canned version, but not being a regular NAB drinker I had yet to buy any myself.

I definitely will do in the future.

Heineken 0.0 appears to be just like its alcoholic sibling. Which, is why I say it’s normal. No-one would suspect it was anything other than standard lager. I enjoyed a couple of pints over the course of an evening, and would have gone back for more. I guess the biggest perk is that it was available on tap, in a proper pint glass, and whilst this may not be the norm everywhere I'm sure it will be a far more frequent occurance as the NAB market grows over the coming months.

If you find it available on tap in your local, give it a try - it hits the spot.
