Danish: Carlsberg er egentlig blevet en del af den danske kulturarv og den danske tørst.
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 også det danske køkken hele vejen rundt.
Previously sold in the UK in gold coloured labels/cans as Carlsberg Export. The current UK Carlsberg Export is the same as the standard Carlsberg Export.

Pours a pale lager yellow with a white head. Nose is faint cereal. Taste is weak malt, weak bitterness. Disappointing for a brewery with its history going back to Louis Pasteur and the beginning of the science of brewing. Oh, well. 11.2 oz ridiculous green bottle from a 12 pack poured in to a Carlsberg glass with laser etching on the outside bottom of the glass where it is useless (check the Budweiser glass where the etching is on the inside where it has a function),

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2015
Tasted under its exported alias Carlsberg Copenhagen 1847 for this rating. White, medium thick, very sticky head leaving complex lacing on the edge of the glass; colour is a cristal clear pale golden blonde with steady sparkling. Aroma lightstruck as expected (green bottle!), minerally, grainy, with a strong iron presence and hints of white bread, cheese spread and a bit of grass. Sweetish malty and corny taste, slight sourish graininess, thinnish and metallic with sharpish, minerally carbonation; finish of grassy and herbal ’Euro’ hops, more so than usual in a ’macro lager’ and ensuring a medium long, dryish finish, a bit astringently chemical as well. "That calls for a Carlsberg"? Not really, but I have to admit I had worse in this style. To classify this as a genuine ’Pilsener’, though, seems a bit unjust if compared to the classic Bohemian and German Pilseners!

Pale yellow pour. Aroma of grass clippings and malts. Flavor is about the same. Crisp, and drinkable.

Holmen1 (3201) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2015
Flaske, rett fra kjøleskapet på hytta: klar gylden med kort gardin/filmskum. Overraskende frisk aroma av epler og furunål, men smaken har en kunstig sødme i seg som kombinert med grønne epler trekker ned førsteinntrykket.

RhetoricalAns (500) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear, yellow pour, thin medium head that doesn’t last long. Cereal, grains, slight herbal hop finish.

En god tørsteslukker av en pils. Grei duft og smak av malt og gress. Veldig enkel å like.

Equilibrée mais lassante à la longue. Standard, bière de soif, de masse et de pack.

robto (47) - Belas, PORTUGAL - NOV 11, 2014
25cl bottle at home. It pours a clear golden yellow colour with a thick and decent white head that lasts. Aroma is skunky, malty, very grainy and bread like and overall very yeasty. Taste is clean and crispy, with a very smooth bread flavor, a little brown sugar and sweet caramel profile, malty and a little bit bitter at the finish. It has a light body profile with a good amount of carbonation. It’s not superb, but it’s not that bad either. It’s a very drinkable beer.
