COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Som Carlsbergs originale pilsner blot med 5% alkohol. Du oplever en harmonisk balance mellem bitterhed og sødmefulde æbler, mens du nyder den lyse gyldne farve med det flotte skum og duften af fyrretræ, strå, hasselnød og skovsyre. Ja, det er næsten som en forårsdag i Danmark. Og sådan klæder Carlsberg Pilsner også det danske køkken hele vejen rundt.

Classic light lager. Light sweet, light bitter...not much there. I already feel the hangover.

As a Northerner, I almost drank it with mother’s milk. Classical taste to match the dining table as on itself.

I’m in two minds about this. Usually export lagers brewed under licence don’t float the boat at all, but there was something about this that said to me "Yes, I’m an impostor and you know I am one, but actually I’m quite tasty as well. And it is in that spirit that I threw a Carlsberg back last Sunday night. Bright yellow in colour with obvious carbonation and a white head. Aromas of some sort of metallic hop and flavours of pale malt and the same. The one I drank would have been around 7-9 degrees and actually tasted like something I would want to have another of. So, yes. Well done.

jaghana (3819) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle 275ml, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is on sweet malt, aroma is sweet on malt with corn sugar notes and a round hopy and grassy finish. Quite drinkable and properly balanced, not a top pilsner but a hopy easy going lager.

A - pours clear light stare yellow with no head. S - aromas of honey, floral notes of honey suckle, and some grains and lager. M - pretty light bodied weak palate. Lingering sticky sweet malt ending. T - same as the nose. Awful sticky sweet malt ending. 3+

omega (684) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2012
Obviously well sought after by the NZ rate beer crowd. Only reason why I didn’t put this with the others is that the NZ version is 5% while the other is 4.6% which to me means we are not drinking the same beer. Little nose and quite a flat head. Not much happening in the flavour profile but it is drinkable and quite clean. For drinking fast.

mkel07 (3334) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2012
500ml can. Carries a deep snow white head in the initial pour. Head settles pretty quickly. Light amber colour with lots of grainy straw aromas. Earthy muddy flavour that is not pleasant at all and leaves a bad aftertaste.

Linnet (1095) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2012
Clean, crisp, discrete bready aroma, flavour is watery, malty and clean, nothing to remember, but good for lawn moving.
