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.

Not much aroma, but caramel, fruity and slight toasty. Frothy white head, clear ruby liquid. Medium sweetness followed by light bitterness. Soft carbonation, creamy texture. Good regular beer.

Carls special har en mørk rødlig farve med fint skum. Øllen er god rund i smagen med smag af malt der afrundes af en bitterhed.

Fingerbollet, Copenhagen. Keg. With Colin and Reubs. Clear amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Mild malts. A little dried fruits. Crisp finish. There isn’t that much here to get offended about, something of a fresh air beer.

Had this beer from bottle and tap many times. Nicely balanced and a step above the regular Carlsberg. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed a pint of this beer in a plastic cup on tap at the main brewery in Copenhagen. The beer had a deep full amber-copper color with a large creamy-foamy white head with very good retention and excellent cling and lacing. The aroma had rich earthy and grainy hops notes along with some floral tones and lighter barley and caramel malt. The beer was mostly bitter with earthy and grainy flavors, but also had a modest caramel malt effect for balance. It was a fairly wet and creamy beer with a thicker somewhat watery mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Gylden brun klar med lavt beige skum. Lukter karamell, epler og honning. Lett. Vannete. Noe karamellsødme. Kort

As expected, it is a somewhat boring beer. Light aroma of caramel, malt and hops. Partly caramelized flavor which ends up in a fairly bitter finale. Certainly not convincing, but instead easy to drink.

Burk från skånekompis, tack Tomas! Svag brödig doft. Fin färg. Smakar inte mycket, fegt Carlsberg. Men funkar likväl i glada vänners sällskap.

Bottle, 330 ml in Copenhagen. Pours amber with off-white head. Caramel malty, metallic, dry. Thin bodied. Not good.
