Carlsberg “0.0” is an alcohol-free pilsner-style lager.

Carlsberg brew this one to the usual recipe, then remove the alcohol afterwards. Other tweaks to the usual ingredients of water, yeast, hops and malt include added sugar and natural flavourings. The overall sugar content is 2.5g per 100ml, which is a bit higher than your typical alcohol-free lager.

0.0% pours an orange-gold colour with hardly any foam or head. It looks more like a cider in the glass.

The aroma is clean and malty, with a slight chemical twang if you get a deep enough sniff. It’s inoffensive.

The mouthfeel is the best part of this lager. It’s lightly carbonated with a smooth consistency that doesn’t single it out as a non-alcoholic beer.
