I'm currently on holiday in Lanzarote and although I tend not to drink much beer in the heat, when I heard about a new craft brewery on the island, I had to check it out.
Cerveza NAO has only been in production for three weeks but already have two beers that are attracting attention from restaurants across Lanzarote. Using the best malted grain from Germany, locally grown cereal and hops imported from the UK and America, NAO have created two beers that they hope will be a hit with local drinkers - Capitán APA, an American style pale ale and La Gloria, a Berliner style weiss beer. I bought a couple of bottles of each when I visited the brewery yesterday morning.
Capitán APA by Cerveza NAO
I love the big hoppy American pale ales and I would put Capitán APA up there with some of the best. The balance of sweet, bitter and fresh is fantastic but the brewmaster at NAO has done a great job in keeping the beer refreshing enu go to enjoy on a hot day. This beer is easily one of the best that I've tasted in recent months, so much so that I'm disappointed that I only bought two bottles!
