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...).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Much earlier rating:
The following is a previous revied of Carlsberg Export.
Sample at a beer tasting event at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Light yelow color. Malty scent and taste. Good bitterness. Fairly boring, but still not as bad as I have remembered it. (This was a blind tasting)

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bright golden color. Fizzy almost nonexistent head. Smells citrus and malt. Does beer juice exist? It tastes like concentrated beer diluted with water, i.e. almost nothing. Some citrus aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 0,5 l bottle. Unbelievable citrus smell. You have to be a fan but when it hits you, you are done. Maybe industrial made beer but it still has something special. Yeast and citrus all over. Great one. Still.

2.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
German export in 0,5 l bottle. My husband likes to refer to beer in green bottles that they smell like a mens toilet. And this is what comes to my mind when drinking Carlsberg. Citrus flavors, medium bitterness.
