Central City Brewers + Distillers Red Racer Street Legal Pilsner – Non-Alcoholic Beer at 0.5% ABV | 20 IBU (C$2.56 at Collective, 500 ml, packaged on 8-Aug-2019, acquired 15-Oct-2019, reviewed 1-Nov-2019)

Appearance: clear pale straw with one fat finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thick persistent cap, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy malt, grass, citrus. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: light body, lively carbonation, off-dry medium bitter slightly astringent finish. (3/5)

Not quite as good as the Street Legal IPA, largely because there’s less hopping to distract from the absence of alcohol. I’m still getting a slight astringency in the finish that I suspect is related to the de-alcoholization process, but all in all not bad for a fake. (12/20)
