I was wondering whether or not it is permissible to drink non-alcoholic beer.

The intention in drinking the non-alcoholic beer is obviously not to get intoxicated in any way. I have heard that Saudi Arabia allows non-alcoholic beer. However, I have read that there are trace amounts of alcohol. The non-alcholic beer itself say “less than 0.5% alcohol” on the bottle, but I have read that the content is usually around 0.2% alcohol. Thank you and peace be with you.
