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.

440ml can. Pale yellow, small white head, quite effervescent. Relatively hoppy with straw notes, modest malt sweetness and a dash of lemon. The bitterness does well to hide the overbearing graininess of the standard Carlsberg. Medium carbonation, light body, on the watery side but has a decent length to the finish.
