Tiny Rebel’s non alcoholic version of Clwb Tropica was released back in 2016, and has been a popular drink since its inception. Just take a look at any online beer review site, and you will see that it is littered with high praise and positive feedback.
So, creating a non-alcoholic version of your best drink seems like a logical next step, to increase the size of consumer demand. Let’s see if it does the original justice.
Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropic Non Alcoholic Beer Initial Review
Before we start, the commercial description of Clwb Tropic describes itself as “American hops, amplified by peach, passionfruit, pineapple and mango flavours”.
So, now that we know what to expect, it’s time to crack it open.
Opening the can, there is a definite fruity smell – matching the description – with a strong pine aroma too. Pouring into a glass, the IPA itself is a medium amber colour with little carbonation and head.
The initial taste is a mix of malts and hops, with a definitive tropical taste, matching the commercial description. Although light and with a fruity body, there is a somewhat bitter and sour after taste finish to the beer.
Although it is quite light and pleasant to drink, it comes across as too sweet. Meaning one can per drinking session is enough here.
Overall, a great tasting IPA that non alcoholic drinkers should try at least once, but for a similar drink, Big Drop’s Pine Trail is definitely preferred in my opinion!

This popular can of Clwb Tropica comes in a distinctive can design, that is similar to the alcoholic version. Although the image makes it appear as a 440mL can, the can used in this review is a 330mL can.
