If you’ve ever been to Spain, or you’ve never been to Spain, you’ve probably had a San Miguel. The Spanish have been brewing it since 1890, and exporting it round the world. Owner Mahou San Miguel now produce 70% of the Spanish beer on the planet, and that includes a lot of alcohol-free beer.

When San Miguel 0.0% was launched in 2001, it was Spain’s first ever cerveza sin alcohol – a “pioneer”, launched so drinkers could enjoy “all the aroma, freshness and quality of beer, with 0.0% alcohol”.

We wouldn’t quite go that far, but it’s not bad. It’s clean, a bit thin, but definitely refreshing. If lager’s your thing, this might just do it for you.

Sadly, its presentation lets it down a bit. Compared with the attractive red, gold and green colour scheme of San Miguel Especial and Fresca, this blocky blue and white design hardly screams out quality. It looks like a special product you might go and buy in the ‘free-from’ section of the supermarket, rather than a beer you might pick out amongst other beers because it looks good.
