This is a 0.5 % ABV pale ale and I have to say, it is one of the best alcohol-free beers I've had, but that's like saying that a chicken burger is the healthiest type of fast food you can buy. Still fast food, still non-alcoholic beer. The first few sips are ok but then your body tells you something's wrong. Beer is a alcoholic beverage because alcohol provides an essential contribution to taste. In my opinion, the perfect ABV is anywhere between 4.7 % and 5.4 %, anything under it and the beer is a bit too "weak", and anything over it makes stronger (in taste) than it ought to be.
