Nils Oscar God Lager 5.3%ABV

Dark orange-gold in colour. Cold-fermentation lagered beer with a soft and sweetish fluffy nose; gently toasty, a juicy malty biscuity character, a restrained citrus orange in the background.
Initial impressions on the palate are of its intense bitterness and a lasting dry finish that is reminiscent of the breakfast cereal Grape Nuts; or imagine a hay barn in the summer when it hasn’t rained for a while and you can almost taste the dryness in the air.
The beer delivers a vigorous piney and resiny palate-scrubbing effect to the palate, there’s also a light bittersweet side to it; this is a sexy Marilyn Monroe of a lagered beer, a beer that sways onto the palate expressing big bold flavour colours as well as soft and seductive notes.
