COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Carls Special er en ravfarvet lagerøl, der specielt blev udvalgt som Carlsbergs 150-års jubilæumsøl. Det er en øl med lidt sødlig karakter og tydelig karamelsmag, men stadig med en god balance med det bitre. Eftersmagen er præget af æble og solbær, og duften har noget ristet og karamelagtigt over sig.

probstblueribbon (3057) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
33 cl bottle via a colleague, served cold and shared. Clear amber with a decent white head. Light melanoidin, a touch of caramel, clean, no hop character to speak of. Medium-ish body, moderate carbonation. Thinner and less interesting than the nose, a little noble hop character, less malty; dry with fairly low bitterness and a somewhat weak finish. Not that special...

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
not bad, but nothing special. Has a decent hop bite and a crisp body, but really not a whole lot else going on. aroma is weak, as is the palate.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Dark amber red with subtle, but obvious foam. Tastes of caramel, beechwood, rock candy and syrup; the sweetness is discrete enough not to overkill in any direction. The hops are relatively anonymous, most obvious in the tail.

Cool_Bond (1568) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Malty aroma. The taste is a little bitter tone but mostly malty. Weak bitterness which fills the front of the mouth a weak moment. Do not quite understand what is speceillt with this beer only? Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
