In my travels through Scandinavia, I can get tired of drinking lagers... and tend to drink them as a last resort if others beers cannot be found. This God Lager better than the standard Euro lager fare. ("God" in Swedish is good.)

It has a nice gold hue. The aroma was marginal, with more malt. The taste brought in hops, but they stuck around too long in the aftertaste. Fortunately, God Lager was clean and crisp and went well with the fries; cutting the grease.

This beer is listed on the "1001" and, arguably, is not god enough to be there. That review said this is Nils Oscar's take on a Viennese style lager.

Bottle from rlgk, thanks Ronnie!

Pale yellow color with a decent white head.

Aromas of copper, bready malts, grassy hops and wood.

Malt goes along with leather and tobacco, becomes a little sweeter as taste lingers on the palate, toffeish, then gets rolled over by a very livley metallic carbonation. A soft touch of yeast adds smoothness to the mouthfeel, while barley and hops carry a zingy freshness.

A good example of how a decent lager should be.

Lovely malty taste. Smooth finish. Lovely bouquet. At 5.3% it is a perfect accompaniment to many dishes. This is a beer to enjoy rather than quaff. I enjoyed one, i found the second a little bitter to the taste. I have only limited experience of Swedish beers but this tempts me to experiment further, as the intensity of the flavours is very much to my palate.

Bottled
In every aspect this presents itself as a good standard traditional European lager
with its golden body white head that doesn't stay long
biscuity aroma and malty taste
there is a little hop profile but not much
worth a try certainly though
