Completely alcohol free beer: would you drink it?

I saw an article about this new beer from Kirin this morning.  I have to say I’m not sure what the market would be for it.

A thin Japanese beer with no alcohol? Why don't they call it "water"?

I have to admit that, as a homebrewer, I am curious about how they make it.  The article says they leave the yeast out, so no fermentation must take place.  I guess they are just carbonating a thin wort.  <shrug>
