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.

Kronebryg (1081) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2011
Head with large bubbles - like soap! Yellow. Metallic and almost medical nose - not inviting. Light and not so long. light taste but no strange flavours. very neutral pilsner.

Mr_Pink_152 (1047) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
660ml bottle from co-op supermarket England. Brewed at 4.8% rather than the 5.0% stated here. An ok lager but only just that.

humlelala (1038) - DENMARK - SEP 16, 2011
(blind-sampled at Election Day Pale Lager Challenge) Pours a pale, clear golden with little, white head. There’s not much aroma to detect in there - except perhaps some herbal hops? Weak-bodied, softly carbonated, watery texture and a short, bitter finish. The taste is somewhat bitter. Girlfriend says: "Quite generic."

ralphdot (994) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
5.0% gold colour with no head or colour, slight sweet tastes, another one extremely like slightly sweet carbonated water.

thanatosti (978) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2012
50 cl. can @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn. Golden with a white head. The head was quickly gone but left some lacing. Aroma of malts, hops and sugar. Taste is likt most macro brews. Middle of the road lager with a thin aftertaste.

BiereLuc (977) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013
Yeux : C’est une blondasse qui se laisse mater du coin de l’œil. Constante en effervescence, elle mousse à point. À peine versée, on a des préjugées de bière commerciale, du genre peu goûteuse, pour étancher la soif. Point. Nez : Des flash-back citronnés hantent notre esprit. Ça sent la bière (vous l’aurez deviné), mais aussi l’orge en subtilité. On a beau chercher d’autres odeurs pour se convaincre, rien d’autre ne se manifeste. Bouche : Étrangement sèche, on aurait cru cette lager plus désaltérante. L’alcool se perd dans le pétillement intense alors que les autres saveurs ne semblent pas exister. Gorge : L’alcool disparu en bouche revient en arrière-goût, comme un rappel d’ivresse à venir. Les odeurs céréalières se manifestent désormais sous une espèce d’amertume semi-discrète, semi-imaginaire. Ouais! Verdict : Tant qu’à se fendre en quatre pour difficilement trouver cette bière plutôt rare au Québec, aussi bien acheter une caisse de Carlsberg régulière. Généralement, elle est plus fraîche puisqu’elle est plus vendue. Et le fait d’être entreposé en caisses permet à la bière d’absorber moins de lumière, ce qui évite souvent l’odeur de moufette.

dogbomb (968) - ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Keg. Pale yellow ale with lots of bubbles. White bubbles on top. Nose is syrupy corn. Taste is incredibly syrupy, very sweet and corny. A lager, I guess... But not a great one.

SimplySike (963) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2012
33cl. Bottle. Poors clear tellow with white head. Aroma is malts. Taste a bitter, some sweet. Mouth-feel thin. Just another lager.

Joakgust (962) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow beer with a small white head. Aroma is malty with notes of grains, hay, grass and herbs. Flavor is malty with notes of grains, hay, vegetables, herbs and grass. Not very interesting but refreshing.

olliejobbins (948) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
660ml bottle. Pretty unremarkable pale lager. Pours golden, with a small head. Tastes rather unappealing - hops maybe? Metallic and sour. Nasty.
