Uwe Stereo Pils is a craft beer from a small German producer – there are just three of them, including the brewmaster Ludwig. Unlike some big alcohol-free brands, they don’t take the alcohol out of their beers. Instead, they use a special yeast that stops the fermentation process.

This particular beer has a strong aroma of malt and hops, with something underlying that is sweet and fruity. It’s an attractive pour: golden amber and clear with a white, light head. It’s a pilsner, so it’s a bit livelier than your run-of-the mill lager. The taste is mild at the top of the drink but a little stronger at the back, with an aftertaste that is not at all unpleasant. The hops are quite aromatic, but you only really get that on the point of swallow. This drink is a wonderful example of what alcohol-free drinking is all about. It contains less sugar and calories than many soft drinks and juices. It’s isotonic and contains several vitamins and minerals, including B12.

A cheeky monkey of a drink, I like the bottle very much. It’s bright and cool and feels very on-trend. My only complaint is that I would like a bigger bottle and for it to be more readily available!
