A real help if you are thirsty and are looking for water. Not any maltiness at all and the hops, well are there any ?

A VERY mainstream brew, if you are into Becks, Hieniken etc this fits right in.

Very very average. To call itself "pilsner" one must have some hops in, but here - no case.

I don't know what it is about german imports, they generally taste the same.

Basically, the one good thing about this is that I got to add another country to my list (I think). I think mediocrity should be the goal here.

It is not my kind of beer, but I drink it, why I don't know, perhaps because of the name: Carlsberg.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Hey you get off my lawn. These where the first and last words Ive ever spoken after drinking a Carlsberg lager. Carlsberg you skunky bastard. You make me want to mow the lawn over and over again. Upon doing so I shall pull up a beach chair and bask in the warmth which is my victory. A victory that will last a life time, or maybe for one night. Fuck it. However either way its still a victory.
With all due respect to my last entry...Vacation to England... Purchased only one Carlsberg 1847 original lager along with five pints of Guinness stout the last night I was in London. I bought these beers at the 24 hour market after I placed an order for some pizza at the local arcade mart. The two pizzas where five pounds each. So you figure five lbs is about ten US dollars. That’s about twenty dollars American, I wouldn’t have been so depressed if it had at least filled me up! Twenty dollars worth of pizza and I was still hungry? Wow. At least the Carlsberg and Guinness did there part. Cheers!

Quite a good lager. Not as good as the non-export though. Light on the alcohol which allows you to savor and make it last. Recommended.

Pale golden color topped with a medium thick white head and good lace. Strong skunky aroma. I could smell the skunk from across the room. Slightly sweet yet skunky flavor with a clean finish. Smooth and light bodied.

Ho hum beer that I used to think was much better. Comes off as stale and not too biting, would be much better if well it were a totally different beer. Weak color, stale taste at times.
