2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow with white foam head. Aroma is like most pilseners, nothing special. So is taste, bitter pilsener. OK beer, nothing more. (Milaan 201206)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pale yellow, nose is slight. Bit of hop and grainy malt. taste has quite a bit of fruity hop, not much malt and a dry uninteresting finish. Not a bad macro and has some taste to it. Finish lacking though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
660 Mil bottle at Pete’s ’housewarming’. Pale piss coloured. A standard Pale Lager with maybe just a tiny bit more. There’s definitely a bit of character to the hops. Grassy, floral. I’m getting carried away. This is a pale lager we’re talking about...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
