Top 10 non-alcoholic beers for Dry January

Low Alcohol Old Speckled Hen – 0.5%

An intriguing addition to the non-alcoholic beer market, even more so for ale drinkers, is a Low Alcohol variant of Greene King’s popular Old Speckled Hen.

Launched late last year, the 0.5% Old Speckled Hen Low Alcohol is brewed with Pale and Crystal malts alongside Challenger, First Gold and Goldings hops, and “faithfully delivers flavour characteristics reminiscent of the 5.0% ABV bottled beer,” says the brewer.

Despite its limitations, it’s a solid alternative to the real thing, with malty, lightly toasted aroma on the nose and a light toffee character on the palate. A good step toward opening the door for more non-alcoholic mainstream ale alternatives.

RRP: £18 for 12x 500ml bottles, available in Greene King and free trade pubs, independent retailers and online at greenekingbrewery.co.uk.

    This is by far the best NA beer out there. I quit using alcohol 38 years ago but still crave the taste of a cold brew once in awhile. I love this! Problem is, it’s not easy to find here in the USA. I finally found out that Walmart could order it for me with curbside service. Everyone else sells out as soon as it’s stocked. I bought 4 six pack bottles to make sure that I wouldn’t run out any time soon. My beer from now on!
