As one of New Zealand’s biggest brewers, with a long-established place in the market, how have DB responded to the call for more non-alcoholic/low-alcohol beers in the market?
DB Citrus takes a different approach from other options in the market – instead of trying to maintain as much of the normal beer flavour-profile as possible, DB basically compensate for any loss of flavour by introducing new flavour – in this case lemon juice.
The result – while not unpleasant – isn’t exactly a beer either. The best description is probably that it’s like a lemonade on a malt base. It’s a refreshing drink, and probably has its fans, however you could probably do better to simply buy an old-fashioned lemonade from somewhere.
Style: Flavoured Lager

Looks like beer, tastes like old-fashioned lemonade on a malt base.
