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.

Chopper925 (112) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle, Germany. Pours in, in a nice yellow with white, fast fading head. Aroma is heavy fruity, citrus, grain. Taste is pleasant, sweet, slightly bitter. Carbonation is fresh, not too much. Finish is comfortable, has something I can´t describe directly, but tasty, fades rather fast.

Dark yellow colour, with medium head. Smell is malty and some grassy hops. Taste is also malty, some little metallic notes too, and some bitterness in the end, but moderate. Medium carbonation. Not bad, an ok lager.

Renobob (564) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 3, 2014
Bue en bouteile. Il n’y a que peu d’intérêt à cette bière. Lager de base au goût bien industriel...

GoufCustom (748) - HONG KONG - MAR 25, 2014

330 ml can at abv 5.0% available just about everywhere in HK. Got mine at Wui Lung Food Wholesale in Shek Wu Hui, Sheung Shui.

Piss pale golden yellow color; Near zero head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Very small sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, with grains, corn, light bread, light lemon and grass; Near zero sweet taste of malt, with grains, bread, light lemon and light grass; Light body. Dry-thin, slightly slick and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is standard Euro macro Pale: light but dry crisp body, quick thick maltyness for the style, almost no sweetness, grainy, quite bready with rather good hoppiness, with lemony grass being light in nose and quite solid in taste. Moderate to low bitterness for an easy semi-finish; Dry crisp after taste. Easy, and slightly bitter to mouth.

Comments: Say whatever you like about this omnipresent macro. It is THE standard bearer of Pale Lager. Brewed to the style, dry crisp light body, right on maltyness, okay-ish aroma, no off-taste, and more than adequate bready hoppy palate. Easy going, and I cannot find any reason to hate it after all these years. My go-to macro. Yep!
