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.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2012
Can/Bottle: 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…

jmgreenuk (4472) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle at the Servisair Lounge, Birmingham Airport! Poured a clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is stale malt and yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop palate and a short bitter finish. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. A fizzy lager indeed!

McTapps (4142) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2012
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.

MichaelAwesome (4128) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2012
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.

ClubGonzo (4053) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle @ Yngwie’s place, thanks. :-) Golden body, small white head. Pale malts, alcohol and hints of sweet corn in the nose. Taste is pale malts and sweet, maize-like tones with hints of cereal and dusty hops. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Run-of-the-mill as expected, but not too horrible.

A better brew than regular Carslberg, it is still a ’cheap’ tasting lager overall.

jaghana (3966) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle 275ml, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is on sweet malt, aroma is sweet on malt with corn sugar notes and a round hopy and grassy finish. Quite drinkable and properly balanced, not a top pilsner but a hopy easy going lager.

DanielBrown (3825) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Gobbled down (like so many times before) at Primitivo, Birmingham. Hotly fizzed, very liquiddy. Some "sun-shine" malt taste. Not overtly challenging: rather like the quick crossword in The Sun.
