O'Doul's Original and O'Doul's Amber are non-alcoholic malt beverages that are brewed like traditional premium beer. The alcohol is removed from O'Doul's after it is fermented and aged to maturity.
Although O'Doul's is classified as a non-alcoholic beer, it actually contains 0.5 percent alcohol by volume. The alcohol content of regular beer ranges from 3 percent to as much as 10 percent by volume. O'Doul's contains barley malt, domestic and imported hops, brewer's yeast, select grains and water. The alcohol is removed at the end of the brewing process through the use of low-temperature, low-pressure distillation. O'Doul's Original has a mild, sweet taste and dry finish; O'Doul's Amber has a rich, slightly sweet taste with a hop finish.
