karamalz

i drank a german soda, made with malz, popular and in every local restaurant.

http://www.karamalz.de/

it is absolutely disgusting. it tastes like carbonated molasses. it is unhealthy, unappealing, and definitely undelicious. it seems to have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. the only good thing about it is that i didn't get horribly ill after drinking all .5 liters of the bottle.

as a drank this oddly disgusting beverage, i translated the back label:

"Be Active with Karamalz

Your holding the drink that naturally gives your body and soul energy. Refresh yourself with Karamalz, the alcohol-free fitness beverage - ideal for sport, fun, and freetime.

Tastes best when cold."

The main ingredients for this - apparently - sport drink include water, malt, high fructose corn syrup, and hops.

after drinking this sport drink, not only was i disgusted, but i put the big, glass bottle aside, and fell asleep way too early.

in summary: every single thing about this beverage is a lie. just drink beer. the beer probably is healthier because the alcohol is less scary than weird corn syrups.
