Heineken zero is very palatable. Kept me off the sauce for 2 years.

Erdinger do a nice one too

A relative works for a large brewer, gave me some samples to try, tasted a couple and the rest went down the sink.

Innes and Gunn is my home beer 🍻

I've tried loads, the best was in a 500ml bottle from sainsbury, their own brand, it was just called Czech low alcohol pilsner. Can't find it around here now. Genuinely tasted like real beer. Of them all, I keep going back to becks blue.

If I wanted alcohol free I'd drink dandelion and burdock. It tastes nicer than beer!

Adnams Ghost Ship alcohol free.

I used to drink that when it was my turn to be "des" and drive the pool team to an away game (back in the days when there was such a thing as a pub pool league!). Really not bad at all :thumbs:

Only tried it once during a brewery drivers strike, ended up putting vodka in it!

:cheers: Best ones I've tried if you like lager is the Erdinger 0.5% and if you go the other way BrewDog Nanny State is ok at 0.5%. Most of the 0% ones I've not liked at all for various reasons but there are many I've not tried but as a disclaimer I do usually drink and someone else drives :cheers:

Had a few 'lucky saint' low alcohol beers over the festive there, was really tasty, genuinely like a real beer, albeit a fairly light/ weak one.

Got a couple of cans of Guinness 00 free over the hols. Tastes like watered down proper Guinness. Mixed 50/50 with the proper stuff it tasted ok.
I'll buy it again and at least ill be taking 50% less alcohol!
