COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Meets some of the Standards of a pale lager, such as aroma and colour. Nonetheless the alcoholic palate and the non existent notes of anything other than, well, alcohol, makes this beer a mediocre one.

Maxbier (164) - Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pale yellow color, thin head. The nicest thing I can say is it is drinkable, no unpleasant tastes or aromas. Not worth the calories though, next time I'll have a glass of water and my liver will thank me. Aroma is minimal effervescent maybe a hint of wet clean paper. Flavor is sugary sweet with a hint o artificial hop. Almost undetectable bitterness

Holmen2 (707) - NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Pale golden. Good lacing, no head. Artificial sweetness in aroma and taste. Metallic and unfresh. Not much bitterness. Pathetic excuse for a pilsner. Brewed by Ringnes.

Xavalias (69) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Can from local Danish supermarket, 4.6%. Pours yellow with irregular white head that disappears very quickly. Medium carbonation with irregular bubbles. Very mild sweet aroma, perhaps malt, a bit of hops after some time too, but really not much. Slightly sour taste first, then just plain sweet. Can’t find any bitterness. Short sweet finish. Palate is very watery, I could be drinking lemonade.

It’s just pointless. One of a million exactly the same in taste, aroma and appearance lagers.

Leicht herb und schön würzig, erinnert mich irgendwie an Wicküler! Schmeckt ganz gut, ist aber kein weltklasse Bier, dennoch kann man es gut trinken! Das Flaschendesign ist echt cool!

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Nothing good about this beer, don’t know why I wasted money buying it. Even on draft, it’s bland, thin, grainy straw taste, metallic aroma, weak appearance. Now I thought the aroma was decent, standard sweet pale malt, but it went downhill from there. Appearance was a pale yellow with fizzy carbonation. Taste was pale malt, maybe some hoppy bitterness, for the bottled version the finish was the downfall, an odd astringent artificial bitterness, truly made me cringe. On draft finishes cleaner than the bottled version but still doesn’t strike me as refreshing. I recommend any European macro lager, except maybe Tuborg (which is also brewed by Carlsberg) over this one. Will be avoiding this going forward.

Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en El Corte Ingles. Color dorado. Sabor a cereal, suave. Pale Lager industrial.

beerbaaron (1160) - Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Clear light yellow golden with minimal head. Aroma is what I would expect, slight grass, straw. Grain. Corn. Very mild bitterness. Sweet but nearly as much so as the more familiar American macro lagers. Ordinary but does better than many of its peers.

Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt hop, standaard pilsgeur. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig. Doorsnee pilsje.

Tap @ Jäähovi, my bachelor party.
Quite dark orange clear beer with no head at all. Aroma has cardboard and corn. Flavor is honeyish sweet with some cardboard and corn. Palate is watery thin with sparkling carbonation. Medium strong bite of bitterness on the finish, some crispness. Not totally hopeless but not enjoyable by any means.
