Buckler Is Perhaps The Best NA Beer On The Market

Jun 28, 2003
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Outstanding flavor.

Cons:Hard to find.

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this NA beer because of its outstanding European taste.


I love the taste of beer, but now I am allergic to alcohol. Then, after a six year hiatus, I began drinking NA beer.

I can honestly say that I've tried almost all of them and have to admit that the Europeans have the upper hand when it comes to brewing NA beer.

Because some NAs don't go through the same fermentation process that regular beer goes through, the sugar just stays there. This is where adding extra hops comes in and Buckler's taste manages to reflect this quite nicely. The arrested fermentation process seems to bring out the best flavor in NA beer, and Buckler is a prime example.

Although Buckler is made by Heineken, it doesn't taste like regular Heineken. I seriously doubt that it was supposed to taste like Heineken. It can't, anyway. It doesn't have any alcohol in it!

Buckler is just Heineken's entry into the NA market, so it shouldn't be faulted for not tasting like regular Heineken. Heineken markets Buckler as a stand-alone brand and doesn't try to identify it with Heineken.

I would only expect Buckler to taste similar to regular Heineken if it was called Heineken NA.

Buckler's flavor begins and ends with hops, making it rich, crisp and full, very balanced and tasting like real beer. Its aroma and flavor is so good, that it began to arouse the same sense of well being that accompanies a great, satisfying beer. This sensation was so strong, that I had to double check the label to make sure that I was drinking NA beer.

Buckler is best when served between 45-65 degrees. Drinking it ice cold will only mask most of its aroma and flavor.

If you like the taste of European beer or micro-brews, I am sure that you will enjoy the taste of Buckler.
