Isn't it the taste which counts, rather than the alcohol?  I, for one,
don't see alcohol as an essential part of my diet.

A popular drink called "Radler"(*), consisting of one half light ale and
one half lemonade, is a very refreshing beverage in the summer, after or
in between a bicycle tour.  However, the bicycle tour could become
slightly fatal when drinking too much alcoholic Radler.  Ordering an
alcohol free Radler helps to stay in a good shape, regardless how hot it
is.  And there's this:  Not *every* non-alcoholic beer tastes bad.
Really, trust me.

They don't.  By law you can call your beer "non-alcoholic" if the
alcohol content is lower than 0.5% (or 1% in some countries).  So
a non-alcohlic beer is actually a very-low-alcoholic beer.
