Is it safe to drink this wen pregnant? Only reason I ask is because the content is like 0.05% thank you

It's fine I think the % of fresh orange juice is very similar. Enjoy

BananaPie Sat 22-Nov-14 19:04:31

It's fine. If you're worried, you can get 0.0% beer too. Bavaria isn't bad

JennyBlueWren Sat 22-Nov-14 19:06:39

I've been drinking it. But watch out -I got IDd buying it!

Marshpillow Sat 22-Nov-14 19:36:00

Yeah it's fine but it definitely tastes different (as you'd expect as it has slightly different ingredients!) I found it just gave me a headache as it was so sugary.

I second the tasting different thing...the pear one tasted exactly like pear drops and was indeed too sugary. They do some lovely non alcoholic beers, ginger beers and wines x

Yes that's fine - DH is going alcohol free for a year and he drinks Bavaria and Cobra which are both 0.0%.

Don't forget you can get Kopperberg in Ikea loads cheaper!!

SummerSazz Sat 22-Nov-14 20:07:07

My vote would go with Bavaria too smile

mumxof3x Sat 22-Nov-14 20:09:35

I got asked for id today buying it lol. Really is sweet though x

Bowlersarm Sat 22-Nov-14 20:10:29

Becks Blue is 0.0%

Jaffakake Sat 22-Nov-14 22:17:41

Erdinger beer is on sale at tesco & is 0% it's really quite nice!

JennyBlueWren Sun 23-Nov-14 11:06:33

My husband bought me some alcofree beer (not sure what brand) and it was disgusting! I don't normally drink bottled beer though. Made him finish it off so as not to waste it.

JennyBlueWren Sun 23-Nov-14 11:07:40

Oh and to add -I've tried buying "posh" fizzy drinks -Tesco lemon and mint and Bottlegreen's mango and coconut at the moment. Think I prefer Fanta and gingerbeer -so unsophisticated!

LittleBearPad Sun 23-Nov-14 11:09:31

Becks blue is pretty nice

lemontwist Sun 23-Nov-14 11:11:10

I second Erdinger. Its a wheat beer and although not quite the same as the alcoholic stuff. I used to go to a pub that served the alcohol free version on draft & have had quite a few dirty looks while standing in there heavily pregnant with a pint in my hand grin

lemontwist Sun 23-Nov-14 11:12:23

*sorry, meant to say not quite the same as the alcoholic stuff its still nice & quite like the real thing.

BitOutOfPractice Sun 23-Nov-14 11:18:43

I agree about erdinger being just about acceptable.

I strongly disagree with the pp who said that there are some "lovely" non-alcoholic beers and wines. They are, without exception, disappointing

angeltreats Sun 23-Nov-14 11:20:36

It's fine, and I love it although I have a raging sweet tooth. Bavaria is very nice and so is Becks Blue. I tried alco free Cobra and it went straight down the sink.

The odd thing is though that you have to get ID checked for it

Shelduck Sun 23-Nov-14 17:42:18

I've had some Natureo (from waitrose i think) which is dealchoholised and is 0.5%. Don't get excited - it's not like the real thing - incredibly incredibly sharp. But it's a more interesting flavour than grape juice, and a good alternative if you don't like sugary soft drinks. I had it watered down, which is how i often drink fruit juice anyway. i'm such a delicate flower

Jaffakake Sun 23-Nov-14 17:49:01

I disagree about non alcoholic beers being bad - Erdinger's ok. I've also had Budvar & Veltin in bars which gave been really nice & tbh I'm a bit fussy.

I'm not brave enough to try non alcoholic wine though!

Shelduck Sun 23-Nov-14 18:13:00

Sorry - should have said the natureo is "wine" not beer.

BitOutOfPractice Sun 23-Nov-14 18:17:57

I've never had a 0% beer on tap. Maybe it's better than the bottled stuff which I still contest is almost universally vile
