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.
Carlsberg Export has been 4.8% abv in the UK since January 2012

thanatosti (1474) - Culemborg, 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.

En cette soirée d’élections européennes assez désastreuses, je vais donc atteindre mon dizième pays européen par le Danemark et son emblème national avec la petite sirène de Copenhague, je veux dire la Carlsberg … qui a d’ailleurs sponsorisé pas mal de clubs de sport européens. Mon père appréciait beaucoup cette bière qui était pour lui une ouverture sur l’étranger, sur cette Europe qui est peut faire de grandes choses. Maintenant, en ce qui me concerne, il faudrait d’abord que j’apprécie les lagers, ce qui n’est pas le cas.... même en version export à 5 % abv. Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté pure. Bulles pas très vives. Mousse blanche à flocons moyens qui tombe très (trop) vite. Arômes de malt pils, houblon pinçant, agressif (mais il s’agit d’extrait !!!). 1ère bouche douce sur de l’orge en cours de maltage, houblon acide. Arrière-bouche avec un peu de volume, mais des fausses notes. 2ème sur du malt pils mêlé de houblon vaguement défini. 3ème nez d’ammoniaque prononcé, relents fétides. Bouche très fade, plate, insignifiante, pauvre. La longueur nous entraîne sur un long fleuve glauque qui n’est pas une sinécure... La finale est inexistante, et ne peut exister, parce qu’il n’y a rien à savourer. CONCLUSION : platitude, quand tu nous tiens … On est très loin des triples, des abbayes, des strong ales. C’est quasiment un monde de différence, un continent d’écart...

Joakgust (1348) - 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.

Grumbo (1340) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Carlsberg launched the slogan “Probably the best lager in the world” in 1973. Well if that was the case then, I feel for those who had so little choice if this was the best around. It certainly isn’t now. It’s just a very ordinary pale lager.

Pilsner type beer, but not too harsh, slightly bitter on finish, malty more than hops...not bad, but nothing much good either

humlelala (1306) - 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."
