Bottle served into a generic goblet in Ibiza, Spain. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a half-finger head of poor thickness and no cream. Pathetic retention. Colour is a clear gold.
Sm: Very malty. Some nutty hops.
T: Almost entirely malt, with a tepache fermented pineapple reminiscent finish. Built poorly for an alcohol frei.
Mf: Not crisp. Far too thick and heavy; slightly syrupy. Bleh.
Dr: Not worth the bother - or the price (1.40 quid in Ibiza).
Serving type: bottle

330 mL can. 6 degrees Plato. Brew date: Feb. 15, 2011; best by date: Feb. 15, 2012. Formerly called Mahou Laiker. The name "Sin" does not refer to any moral failing, it just means "no" in Spanish, as in "no alcohol".
Appearance: Golden yellow in color. Crystal clear. Poured with two fingers of smooth foam. Plenty of lively carbonation. Head had okay retention, lasting a couple of minutes. Left plenty of lacing in clumps down the glass.
Smell: Very slight sweet smell, cannot pin it down more than that.
Taste: So empty. Along with leaving out the alcohol, I think they left out the flavor too. There is a slight bitterness, but no signature hops flavors to go with it. A bit of a stale, cooked taste, reminiscent of cooked corn (wonder why!).
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, as I expected going in. There is a little carbonation on the palate, but not too much. Slight metallic bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite dry.
Overall: Given a choice between this low alcohol beer and water, I'd pick water. I don't find it appealing at all. When I want to drink a beer, it needs to taste more like a beer than this. There is very little flavor, and the bitterness that is there is generic at best, metallic at worst. Not recommended.
As I stated above, Sin means no. No alcohol. But in my opinion, it could just as easily mean no flavor. My advice, just say no.
