1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
660ml bottle. Pretty unremarkable pale lager. Pours golden, with a small head. Tastes rather unappealing - hops maybe? Metallic and sour. Nasty.

Bottle. Pale lager - yes - but I have to admit the head and lacing are good. Smells soapy citrus with a bittersweet, bready, skunky, washing up liquid finish. Not the worst but mediocre and left a we ebit of an unpleasant taste.....must be bad for me to say that as I DRINK ANYTHING

From the bottle. Nice aroma. Some hops, hay. Damp, cool, and fresh. Bready taste with some hop zest and a bitter finish. I like it. Slightly better than average Euro-lager.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A modified rating from the old days:
Clear golden (yellow) colored beer with a small to medium and quick disappearing white head on top of it.
The smell is typical grainy, some malts, light sweets, old grassy hops and herbs.
Taste is light/medium bitter with grainy herbs, grassy hops and some sweet bitter herbs.
Aftertaste seems to be more bitter than it’s in the taste. Decent for the style but bad for beer in general…

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow colour, nice white head. Rather fizzy and lively on the tongue. Noses of bit straw/hay and hops. Has hints of spices to it compared to the ordninary Carlsberg. Light body, thin texture. Goes down well - finish is brief but acceptably pleasant.

660 Mil bottle at Pete’s ’housewarming’. Pale piss coloured. A standard Pale Lager with maybe just a tiny bit more. There’s definitely a bit of character to the hops. Grassy, floral. I’m getting carried away. This is a pale lager we’re talking about...

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
66cl from Induno Olona (VA) plant. As for all the output coning out from that plant and having had this in the past I have no expectations. Ingredients not listed, for sure contains corn. Pale yellow color, modest white head. Nose is flat, some skunky and grainy notes maybe. Aroma: grains, corn, cardboard, straw, metallic. Taste is flat with a harsh metallic bitterness. Seems like it comes from a can, but it’s a bottle instead. Body is thin, average carbonation. Finish is sour and unrefined. Finish is unpleasing. Typical mass product, almost the same as all other brands of Carlsberg Italia (Tuborg, Splugen, Poretti...).
