A review of Marks and Spencer Low Alcohol Czech Lager

ABV: 0.5%
Calories per bottle: TBC
Score: 2 out of 5

Like the Sainsbury’s Low Alcohol Czech Lager, this Marks and Spencer brew was created at the Staropramen brewery in Prague. Sadly, although the smart bottle design mirrors the Staropramen red, green and gold colour-scheme, that’s where the similarity ends.

It avoids the chemical aftertaste of some alcohol-free beers, but doesn’t stand out in other respects. Although it’s from the same stable as the Sainsbury’s lager, it’s strangely thinner, and its flavour doesn’t last in the mouth. We would have hoped for more from the brewers who urge us to “taste the pleasure from Prague”.

Staropramen’s own-brand non-alcoholic beer has won awards in the Czech Republic. We can only wonder if this is the same beer.
