St. Pauli NA
I really don't understand why one would buy non-alcoholic beer. You can't argue that it's because you enjoy the taste of beer, as not a single non-alcoholic beer actually tastes like it's alcohol bearing cousin--beer. NA is merely the 'essence of beer' or imitation beer. St. Pauli's NA is in the elite class of imptorted NA, which includes beers such as Beck's Haake Beck or Guiness's Kaliber. You could say these beers are a step-up from American NAs, such as Busch NA or Old Milwaukee NA....but really, they're not.
St Pauli's NA had a very odd taste...like a fruity, skunked, watered down beer. Throw a strawberry in a can of Bud Light, let it set in the sun all day, chill it, bottle and price at $7 per six pack, then you've got St. Pauli's NA.
