We've previously written about the best non-alcoholic beer we've tried, and that guide features all kinds of beer, from stouts to pale ales. But there is no denying that when you think of the perfect beer, you probably think of a lager - crisp and refreshing, a lager hits the spot in a way that few other beers can match.
In the non-alcoholic beer space, there are lots of alcohol free lagers to choose from, to the point where it can be a bit overwhelming to know which to go for. We've tried lots of them, so we feel well-placed to publish a guide to the best alcohol free lager that you can buy in the UK. Let's get into it:
Impossibrew functional non-alcoholic lager
The non-alc lager from the Impossibrew brand is a really special product - made using nootropics to help you relax and natural spring water, this is definitely what we'd describe as a premium alcohol free lager. The taste is crisp and refreshing, and we love the golden colour of the beer. We also love that you can buy it in a larger can, which so few other brands offer for their non alcoholic lagers. It's also 100% vegan and gluten free, so everyone can enjoy it. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk
Brooklyn Alcohol Free Hoppy Lager
In terms of taste, we couldn't find a better-tasting alcohol free lager than the Brooklyn Hoppy Lager. To us, this honestly tastes like a normal alcoholic lager, to the point where we had to check the label to make sure it was actually non-alcoholic. We wouldn't say that it has a classic lager taste, because the taste is a bit more interesting and varied than a standard lager. It's definitely hoppy and lives up to its name in that regard. We were blown away by this lager and we're delighted to see it stocked in more of our local supermarkets, learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
Birra Moretti Zero
Birra Moretti is a classic Italian lager, and the brand has quickly established itself as a staple in UK pubs. The alcohol free lager from Birra Moretti is actually really tasty and definitely the best of the "mainstream" alcohol free lagers that we tried for this guide - a nice bitter aftertaste and tasted very similar to a standard Birra Moretti, which really surprised us. We were impressed with this despite being a bit skeptical, learn more and buy it here - groceries.asda.com
Lucky Saint unfiltered lager
Lucky Saint was one of the first alcohol free lagers we spotted on the supermarket shelves, and is definitely what we'd describe as a premium drink. It is so refreshing and crisp, and we've noticed that many high-profile restaurants will include Lucky Saint lager as a non-alcoholic drink option on their menus (recently we ordered a Lucky Saint at Dishoom) as it seems to compliment a meal very well. We also love the small glass bottles, which have a tactile and very satisfying feel to them. Learn more and buy it here - sainsburys.co.uk
Brewdog Lost AF lager
The Brewdog Lost Lager is a relatively new addition to the Brewdog range, but has quickly become one of the most popular beers that the brand produces. We were delighted to find an alcohol free ('AF') version of this lager, and decided to sample it during a recent trip to our local Brewdog bar. The taste is very refreshing and every so slightly citrusy, with a nice bitter aftertaste. We loved the pour of the lager and it had a nice head too. Overall, another excellent Brewdog beer.

We hope this guide helps you to find a great-tasting alcohol free lager. There are some great options here in the UK, so check them out. Let us know if you've tried any of these or if you have any other suggestions for us.
