2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Doré un peu urique, grosses bulles vite disparues, col de mousse aussi mince que la bière elle-même. Houblon assez direct, avec âcreté perceptible. Évoque le métallique ; pas de mouffette. Effet "Perrier" en puissance, avec du houblon. Amertume importante, goût qui fuit rapidement. Un brin salée avec l’âcreté, limitée mais présente, du houblon. Agréable selon les circonstances, mais pas transcendante ; désaltérante mais un peu âcre, et ce défaut devient lassant à la longue. Correcte au final.

Not really keen on this, it’s rather weak and overly gassy, IMO there are much better out there than this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I got this beer in a WORLD BEERS packet (possibly the worst beer related buy I ever spent money on - the packet itself I mean, beers were alright).
A small green bottle of 250 ml, with only its neck covered with a label, while a relief of the word CARLSBERG can be found four times around the bottle.
I crack the bottle open and a smell of malts goes straight into my nose. The head is white in colour when I pour it, one finger in height and seems thick in texture. A lot of bubbles rising hastily to the top. The head disappears after a while, leaving a thin film covering the sutface of the beer, but no lacing around the glass.
The aroma of this beer comes mostly from the malts, with a nice strong smell. Some hops aroma too, but very faint.
The taste is very malty too, thus sweet. But only at first, since the aftertaste is pleasantly bitter. Very refreshing on a hot day like this one.
Dry on the palate, quite thin on the body and light carbonation, give this beer a high drinkability.
Overall a very nice beer. I had it many times before but mostly straight from the bottle and I could also easily find a cold one at my local bar. Now that I can’t find it around the corner anymore (except in cans which I’d rather not) I appreciate it much more.

A clear lager to go along on a sunny day. Nothing special but a rather simple to drink beer.

330ml bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Typical eurolager with nothing extraordinary. Fairly ok.
