As the name suggests Carlsberg 0.0% is completely free of alcohol - not just low in alcohol. It is made with using hops, malt and water with added natural flavouring. Launched June 2015.
Sampled on 16/06/2015
(sample 31/Mar/16) Clear, golden amber with short-lived white head and very light lacing.
Very subdued with tinned sweetcorn and clean straw.
More tinned sweetcorn with very mild hop bitterness. Bland but not offensive.
The finish is the best bit – light maltiness and very mild hop bitterness.
While this alcohol free lager is never going to stand up, or even come close to a well lagered pilsner in the flavour stakes, Carlsberg 0.0% may be a lifesaver for nominated drivers. It’s a tad bland but it’s more flavoursome than water.
