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.

Not much to say. Typical lager. Stella Artois taste. Light, not complex , with mild sweet taste and bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft. Pours a light amber with a white head. Standard lager. Plain and boring. Tasted a little skunky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bue en bouteile. Il n’y a que peu d’intérêt à cette bière. Lager de base au goût bien industriel...

ansalon (946) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a very low white head. Aroma is rye bread, orange zest, stable. Taste is rye bread, orange zest, paper. Very bland and boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Bottle, pours gold with a thin white head. Slightly sweet but thin. I had this while in Bahrain during a deployment to Kuwait (no drinking there) so the rating might higher as this was my first beer in about six months.

cbfobes (2153) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Poured from 500ml can, pours a clear gold with a bubbly white head and bubbles through out, doesn’t look that horrible, aroma is of slight grain with a little bit of a hint of metallic, the flavor had a slight amount of fruit and grain, not as terrible as I was expecting.

MattiasA (617) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2014
Tried it a number of times, including two times at blind lager-tastings, ranked dead least both times. A funky note of undercooked rice messes it up.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours a deep yellow colour, with a white head that dies fast. Malts and spicy hops on the nose. Exactly the same in the flavour department, nice peppery spiciness to it, slightly sweet. Nice after taste. Good beer

Arczir (70) - POLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Generic euro lager. Skunky nose with some herbal notes, pronounced oxidation. Clear yellow with medium white head, medium lacing. Soapy and perfumy taste with metallic higlights. Some watery-sugary corn as well. Very thin body, lively carbonated, nothing special, quite refreshing and drinkable when chilled.

kacyper (160) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Light golden beer with nice white-off head. Medium bitterness. Bad aroma little skunky.
