Nils Oscar - "God Lager" - Waitrose

Post by RAYC » 14:53 Tue 15 Feb 2011

Maybe i was just in the right mood for a beer (or maybe all beer tastes good when England are giving the Azzuri a spanking), but had this over the weekend and thought it really hit the spot.

quite sweet and malty up front, with citrus undertones, followed by bitter dry hoppiness and rather interesting peat-like finish.

Well-balanced, refreshing beer with enough personality and flavour to make it quite distinctive for a lager, my only criticism was that it would be nice if those same flavours were just a bit stronger (but then, maybe, it wouldn't be quite so moreish or attractive as a session lager).
