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.

Zymurgeist2 (1135) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
On draught. Massive corn and straw. Pale gold with minimal white head. Taste is crisp and slight malt grain. Moderate bitterness on finish.

Milter (66) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2015
Pale yellow pour. Aroma of grass clippings and malts. Flavor is about the same. Crisp, and drinkable.

TedE (118) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Slight sweet nose. Tiny flimsy head. Yellow with medium carbonation. Spritzy with a little malt then small tinny hop hit. Good clean finish. Refreshing if nothing else.

DwarfeD (1229) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2015
33cl bottle at home; Nordic Collection. Clear golden with a medium white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitter with some sweet tones. Grain, malts, hay and some citrus. An ok pilsener.

damzz (290) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2015
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 (2592) - 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!

MatthijsE (885) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours fizzy yellow no head Aromas of syrupy malts, bread, water Taste has bready malts, slight citrusy water

Holmen1 (2858) - 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 (417) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear, yellow pour, thin medium head that doesn’t last long. Cereal, grains, slight herbal hop finish.
