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.

bottles (2). ok flavor, though mine were quite bitter. i had a second one just to be sure, but i got the same impression. gotta love anything danish, though the color and head are lousy. didn’t really care for the aroma either.

Poured from bottle, clear gold with medium white head. Aroma with notes of bread, grass and hay. Taste is bitter sweet and dry. Not very tasty but drinkable on a warm day.

BBHansen (282) - Køge, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
bottle @ DTU s-huset: Pours claer golden with ok white creamy head and some lacing. aroma/taste: bread, hints of caramel and some floral notes. palette: medium carbonation, thin body, some barley sweetness, low to medium bitterness, short duration and a watery texture. Overall: uninspiring pilsner

Really enjoyed this beer! It reminded me of Ukrainian "Obolon". The same light taste.

Pours light clear gold. Light white head. Aroma of pear orange and nice bread. Taste of citrus pear and good grains. No cheap cereal flavor. Pretty smooth balance of CO2. Cold, refreshing, tasty for a pilsner.

Bez rewelacji. Aromat słodowy, wygląd słaby, a w smaku co najwyżej "ujdzie". Jeżeli to jest prawdopodobnie najlepsze piwo na świecie to ja prawdopodobnie jestem prezydentem Polski...

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 33cl bottle@home in Carlsberg tall glass. Approx 10 degrees C. My hardest review to date! This is THE beer of my life. Grew up with it. My late father prefered it to Tuborg, the choice readily available at the time. Tried Tuborg myself as a youngster as is was the preferred brew of my intellecutal friends trying to emulate the working classes. Found out how much better Carslberg, then Hof, tasted and never looked back. Even persuaded my girlfriend, now my life’s companon, that Carlsberg is superior in taste. Today , the family, including our 22 year old son, agree. Carlsberg is the standard upon which pilsners/lagers are measured. And though not among the great, it fares well. LIght golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, bread and pine. Taste slightly sweet and malty. I strikes me that I am drinking this too warm! Should be about 5 degrees, but then again, I get a long, malty aftertaste, which is more than I bargained for. Nuff said! I still like this old stablemate. Perhaps more that I should, but it just is a damn nice lager! Pobably not the best in the world, but one of the very goood macro lagers.

On tap at 5k Kildares. Glycogenic tasting pilsner from Denmark. Danky feel to it, flavorful at best, harsh at worst. Gets the job done, easily drank brew.

Old rating. Straight from the bottle. Noticeably skunkiness present. Slight hint of pear and citrus albeit very minimal. Little to no body. Little to no flavour outside of grain. Not even a good pilsner. Just doesn’t taste fresh.

0,5 l plechovka z Coop Jednoty vyrobené v Srbsku. Svetlejšia farba, hustá "jarová" pena, vonia to ako pivo. Chuť slabá, po horkosti ani náznak, po prehltnutí zostáva na jazyku zvláštna pachuť. Mizerné europivo, vypiť len v prípade núdze v zahraničí...

Poured from a 330 CL bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- ahhh, the green glass skunkiness strikes again. Appearance- Straw yellow with almost no head Taste- has an almost citrus flavor with some grain thrown in Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Overall- an ok beer. I am sure this beer has suffered in the US market when craft beer took off.
