    Sounds like water to me! 0% alcohol 'beer'? What next? Chocolate-free chocolate?

    Not a bad alternative to beer

    Just tried this for the first time tonight, saw it in the new mag and bought a 4 pack from Tesco today.

    It's called Equator beer flavour drink and it's 0% alcohol and 0 Calories making it 0 syns.

    Taste is actually pretty good, probably the best alcohol free beer I've tried with the huge bonus of it being syn free, this will hopefully get me some way through barbecue season when I ten to drink a lot of cold ones at the weekends, I won't feel like an outcast for not drinking.

    Ooooh, this sounds interesting. I'm missing alcohol a little bit at the moment (not allowed due to medication) and this might be the answer. I'm also wondering what it would be like to cook with, I have a lovely recipe for slow-cooked ham and beans that uses beer and I've not made it since starting SW.

    Definitely worth a try, the flavour is right, make sure you let us know how it goes

    I got these today as well! They are definitely the closest to actual beer I've had. My OH approves also and is glad he can feel like he's having beer again without worry.

    I also can't wait to try it in cooking, especially adding it to chilli, as before SW I always used to add a bottle of beer or cider before slow cooking it =)
