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.

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, metallic hops, nuts and bread. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, grains, herbs and metallic hops. Well balanced and good hinkability, but not overly exciting.

asimeow (47) - Sandsli, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
0,5L can. First impression; vanilla?!? Metallic vanilla aroma. Weird start. roasty, floral, leaves, vanilla, brown, clear, frothy, white foam, heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, salty, medium body, thick feel, lively, astringent. Dries up my mouth. Pretty heavy on the hops and a nice sweet malt. No new favorite, but still, pretty decent.

StilleStorm (703) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
DWGIJ (drunk with girlfriend in Jerlev); Pours clear cobber with a off-white to tan, fast fading head. Nose is light roasted malt and caramel with whispers of grass and berries. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter with a short sucar water finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is avarage.

Deep vanilla creamy head, some lacings, clear amber body as brewery says. Sweet scents of malts, and some grass. Tastes grass, sweet malts, some bitter, grains, mild hops. Normal on palate, mild, slippery. Finish; bread, mild bitter. Slicky stuff but alright. [50cl can, abv4.4%, B@Rema1000 Middelfart, T@Fjelsted Skov Fyn DK]
