Nirvana non-alcoholic lager

This is actually the third non-alcoholic beer I’ve had from the Nirvana brewery – the previous two being a hoppy pale ale and a tasty dark stout. 

This isn’t any old beer though, no, this is an alcohol-free Bavarian Helles-style lager – and on top of that it is an award-winner, so no pressure then Nirvana!

As you probably now know, the Germans take the brewing of beer very seriously and only use a few key ingredients in its manufacture and that’s exactly the case with Nirvana’s lager – yeast, water, hops and barley malt are used … and that is it!

So, the question is is this another tasty non-alcoholic drink from the Nirvana team? Well, you’ll just need to read the review below to find out.

Is Nirvana Lager any good?


Sometimes I can find drinking non-alcoholic lagers a bit of a flat experience but that wasn’t the case with Nirvana lager. I found this beer to have a tasty combo of malty sweetness with a bitter/ sour edge to it. Carbonation was also spot on and helped make this a refreshing, tasty beer and a Bavarian classic. 

Aroma & Appearance

You certainly get some punchy malt aromas when you pop the lid off this bottle. In the glass you have a lovely dark amber colour and just check out the frothy head! ou
