So I actually came across a lager worse than Carlsberg? Yup! Harboe, a big seller in Denmark, is probably the worst of it’s kind I’ve ever tasted. I’ve done some blind-tasting opposite several other danish discount lagers, and this is by far the worst I’ve ever had. Aroma of Øllebrød (rye porridge) so basically rotten or overcooked barley malt, and I’ll bet not the finest selection of it! Smells like old, wet rye cereal. Too sweet and malty to ever earn the tag of "Pilsner". This is what we call trash-brew in Denmark (among brewers), and it’s more likely a melting pot of leftover mix from Harboes better brews. If not, they really need to stop making this type of beer. Well they should anyway

Clear golden color with a fine white head. Looks ok. But the rest. Nothing I will recommend. Mild and thin. Some metal, corn and some vegetables.
[Can from local grocery store in Kolding, Denmark]

500ml can from Yatai supermarket, Changchun, China. Pours pale yellow with initial head retention. Some bitter aftertaste and sweetness, not much aroma. A step up from average Chinese lagers but that’s not saying much.

Backlog. Had this a number of times. Stale bread, tired malts and a hint of sweetness.

Can from an advent calendar bought in Germany (a gift). Light bready smell. Similar taste. A bit artificial, light and mild.

0.33 l bottle from Odense, Denmark... Just a boring standard "supermarket" Pilsener... Nothing special...

bkurtz (861) - PERU - OCT 27, 2013
500 ml can Lima Pours clears golden/yellow with a decent, yet typical macro head. Slight malt aroma. Taste is nondescript, nothing really there. Not offensive, but not worth drinking.

I lagerfamiljen ska det mycket till för att sticka ut. Den ena kan misstas för den andra och ibland upplevs det som "skit samma" vilken som hälls i strupen så länge prislappen inte tillåts skena iväg. Här har vi en som inte riktigt passar in i familjefotot och anledningen är en märklig smak som får släktingarna på Systembolagets lastpallar att viska bakom ryggen på dansken. Det är kul med udda fåglar men att presentera sig hyfsat hel och ren är det minsta omgivningen kan begära.

Golden color. Weak malty and grainy taste. It’s little sweet. Weak and watery beer. Not something to remember.
