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.

Echon (306) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2016
Dark amber body with a white head.
Moderately sweet aroma and taste with light bitterness. Weak malt flavour and some metallic notes. Increasingly bitter finish.
Light body with watery mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Overly sweet one-dimensional beer. Don’t bother.

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.
