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.

NordicV (995) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
Ljusbrun öl med ett vitt, ganska livligt skum. Doften är maltig, nötig och lite gräs. I smaken även viss karamell. Ett snäpp upp från deras ljus industrilageröl.

LasseVPedersen (169) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Can. Light, clear amber color with small-to-medium white-off head. Creamy head but short lasting. Sweet aroma, malt, little caramel and fruit. Flavor follows aroma being mostly sweet, but quite okay balanced. Fruity in the taste as well. Dry, and little bitter sensation at finish. As a normal beer for friends and a good time, quite fine.

stefannilssons (1306) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2013
Nja, det här var kanske ingen höjdare, smaken var lite tunn och samtidigt spretig med toner av kryddor, trä och torkat hö.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2013
At the Jacobsen brewery, dark fizzy amber, like a thin molasses. The smell is light malty caramel. The taste is poor, grainy, rough, some caramel sweetness but it is mostly a crappy macro lager.

Majek (271) - Ząbki, POLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Can. Amber color, medium head. Very thin aroma of malt and caramel. Little bit better taste, caramelly, bready with pinch of bitterness. Thin finish. Good carbonation. Not so bad.

Can @ Mads, 18/8 2013. Clear amber, small off white head, some lacing. Aroma, malty, some roasted notes, bread, . Taste similar to the aroma. An okay beer if you are looking to get drunk.

SnakeTown (486) - SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Kopparfärgad med mellanstort skum och bra kolsyra! Malt och humle i en bra kombo! Drack denna på fat på Carlsbergs bryggeri i Köpenhamn! Mycket bättre än vad den är på burk!
