When served as a pint here in the UK, I’m basicallly given an artificially coloured, chemically syrup muck. Still popular though.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 Keg on Exeter crawl . Pretty much bland with what little flavour there is hard to find. Not as gassy as some or unpleasant

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 The second beer (after Fosters) in my keg lager odyssey. I was surprised to discover that this is markedly superior to the Fosters (but still not good). At least it is quite fresh and had the slightest hint of crisp hop character. Still bland though. Next up was Corona.

Absolute watered down piss. Really Really horrible, no redeeming features, needs to be poured at all cost.

On tap at Primitivo, Birmingham. Plain, very pale Lager, with nothing to set it apart from the crowd. Some sweetness, and a medium burst of refreshing crispness, but it disappears all too quickly, and becomes watery.

If it smells like it, tastes like it and looks like it, then it is it. Smells bad, looks bad, tastes of soap. Avoid.

Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale yellow, carbonated. Thin weak lager, incredibly gassy masking everything else. The Danes can keep it.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
My most favourable lager available at my local pub on the pump and also bottled.
If the offers right in the off license I drink this at home also.
A very 'British' flavour and quite 'sparkly' on the tongue.
Never looses the bubbles if poured right.
Try the Export version for a drunk kick in the teeth!

Anonymous at best and unpleasant at worst, UK Carlsberg is a Northampton brew that doesn't even come close to matching other chemical lagers like Carling and Fosters. Very disappointing.

Not a great pilsener, it is fairly watery and bland. On a hot summers day you could do a lot worse however.
