GoufCustom (1439) - HONG KONG - JAN 15, 2016

275 ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s at iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Piss pale golden yellow colour Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing with active slight carbonation; Very sweet aroma of Radler-like malt, with lime cordial, floral, sugar, bread, lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with soda, Shandy, watered down lime juice, sugar, faint lemon and faint grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is watered down Shandy - can you imagine that? Malt is already on the thin side, but even the lemony lime is vain and soda-ish and in trace. Light sweetness is a bright spot but still WTF!... Hoppiness is light floral, light lemon and thin grass in nose, and not much in taste; No bitterness whatsoever just soda-ry thin lemon non-finish; Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: On the positive side you can say this is light and refreshing, like a Radler should. It’s still can’t hide the truth that this is a poor Shandy while the malt side is more or less okay, the citrus mix is in dire supply. No!

275ml bottle. Pours clear golden, with a small white head. Aroma is unsurprisingly citrussy, lemon and lime, which carries through into the taste as well. It’s not great but it is quite refreshing, not too sweet, and nicer than competing citrus lagers. Decent for a summer beverage. Summer 2014.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - massive lime. Taste - more big lime over pale malt. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - it’s single dimensional but it does the job.

This is a lovely summer lager and the perfect lager for a shandy. A few ice cubes in a tall pint glass, pour in a bottle of Carlsberg Citrus and top up with R-Whites lemonade or any lemonade which uses real lemon juice. It’s not all about the alcohol, head and aroma... Sometimes a refreshing quick drink out of the fridge is what you need and this hits the spot for me.

Dość nędzny citrus... Liczyłem na przyzwoite orzeźwienie, ale się zawiodłem. W zapachu limonkę, cytrynę można wyczuć, gorzej z piwem... Podobnie mamy w smaku. Z piwem to nie ma absolutnie nic wspólnego (ale czego się spodziewać - sam Carlsberg, przynajmniej w Polsce, jest podły i bezsmakowy), ale miałem nadzieję, na zbawienny wpływ owoców. Wszak napoju limonkowego mamy tu 44%. Wypiłem, bo byłem ekstremalnie spragniony. Wyczynu tego nie powtórzę!

Bottle quality save dewsbury. Golden no head. Aroma is lager lime taste same ok carbonation. A step up from normal carlsberg simply because it masks the horrible taste.
