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

500 ml can at abv 4.8% bought at 7-Eleven on Fu Hing Streeet, Shek Wu Hui, Sheung Shui.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; One and a half finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy slow carbonation; Fragrant aroma of bready malt, with floral, shades of pineapple, molasses, white bread, lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of light malt, with soda, light floral, molasses notes, light bread, light lemon and thin bitter grassy hops; Close to light body. Quite thin and soapy palate; Mouth feel is light maltyness in a soapy soda-ish background. No adjunct and no off-taste, some light floral and faint yellow fruits. Very light sweetness, soggy bread and light lemon to round. Easy… Hoppiness is light floral, light lemon and thin grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is very low for an abrupt, very low astringent soda-ry finish; Slightly dry after taste. Easy and slightly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is not as solid nor crisp as the flagship Carlsberg Lager. Except its soapyness and light malt, there’s really not much to rant about. Just an one-time easy drinking macro, no more no less.

Moderately expressed fresh hop aroma in the future quickly becomes neutral. When pouring foam is formed with fine bubbles, not too high and thick. On the palate there is a noticeable watery and total neutrality, which does not allow to allocate anything once. The aftertaste is dominated by hop bitterness over light refreshing tartness with a little sour.

advent calendar #2. 0.33 bottle labeled as Copenhagen 1847 for Canada, brewed in DK. Just a standard industrial lager: pours clear gold, white head, faint crispy aroma, moderate bready taste, lot of carbonation...

Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of grain and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, grain, and straw, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing this gem.

MUCH better than the UK standard Carlsberg. Pours clear and golden and has some head. Aroma sweet malt. A little more syrupy and malty than the UK Carlseberg. Sorry to keep comparing but it’s my benchmark. Not a fantastic lager but certainly better than the bog standard version.

Very nice taste and comes in a green bottle. Enjoy it with a packet of walkers ready salted crisps

Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body under a small, off-white head that lasts. Rather hoppy aroma, hay, grass, pine cones and flowers dominates, leaving little room for the maltyness. It’s quite bitter in the mouth, medium to full bodied and quite smooth and dry. There’s more room for the malts in the mouth than what it was in the flavor, but it’s far from malt accented. Lasting bitterness in the end. A quite decent lager beer. Not that I think I’ll buy more of it, but I’d rather drink this than the regular Carlsberg, by far. 111030

The best mainstream Euro-lager I’ve had so far. Don’t let the dank, generic grain aroma put you off, the admittedly slightly metallic taste isn’t bad and it doesn’t hang around long enough to offend anyway: you put it in your mouth, swallow, and the flavour makes a clean, crisp getaway. Drinkable and probably fairly good value for money.

Lys gylden, lite skum. Aromaen er malt og litt sødme. Smaken er malt og itt gress. Mildt bitter på tunga. Tynn konsistens, lite å hente i munnfølelelsen.

Tap at Stena ferry to Kiel. Pours nice with golden color and a lot of foam. A taste of bread. A beer that is easy to drink.
