Danish: Denne stærke pilsnerøl er brygget på nordiske økologiske råvarer, bl.a. vildtvoksende havtorn. Med sin strågule til gyldne farve og det tætte cremede skum med blonder står den flot i glasset. Kornduft blander sig med abrikos og jordbær. Smagsmæssigt oplever du en middelfyldig pilsner med godt, bittert bid i eftersmagen.

Bottle: Deep golden, a bit unclear, stable white lacy head, moderate grainy-worty nose with a quite solid herbal-hoppy background; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, as well, really soft; lingering herbal-hoppy finish with some balancing pale malt. Nice, nice brew…

Bottle at the brewery. Pours a clear reddish gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and spice. Taste is malt, fruit, spice, and grass. Pretty decent.

En hel del bitterhed, og noget sødme fra malten. Ikke det dårligste, god øl til frokosten

Extra is a somewhat different lager. The aroma exudes a pleasant spicy scent as I figure comes from the wild Swedish buckthorn, which I know is used. The taste is also seasoned of this pleasant and slightly heavy buckthorn along with light notes of little apricot provides a great filling. Hop bitterness is very carefully checked and it fits really nice for this lager. Its properties as lager I’d rather not compare with anything.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber/gold with a one-finger white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavours of malt, lots of hops, citrus and floral and fruity notes. Sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad - I wouldn’t mind some more hops and bitterness though, but for what is basically a Carlsberg beer it is a pretty good pilsner.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 Udemærket øl - igen - fra Carlsberg Jakobsen-linjen. Den er fyldig, sød og humlet. Dejlig oplevelse. Fik 4 stjerner hvis den var lidt mere bitter og mindre sød...

A light golden beer with a little clear white top. Nice pilsner aroma and feels great in the mouth - not too much/little fuzz. But I miss a taste of some sort between the nice pilsner taste at first and then the bitterness in the end. Although it’s written here on the site, that there is apricot in the beer...I don’t taste it :-(

50cl bottle@home in Pilsener glass@approx 15 degrees C. Pours clear amber with slightly off white head. Rather subdued aroma of malt and grass. Sufficient retention. Very well balanced taste of malt, grass, german pilsner sweetness and a hoppy bitterness, which lingers on in the long aftertaste. One of the best pilseners around,. Was superb with tatare on rye bread and all its vinegary fixin’s with its full, round character. Well done Carlsberg!

Whaoooo! pas vraiment une pils, plutôt un Vienna lager mais quelle tuerie des arôme maltés, caramel et beurré avec une belle amertume ainsi que quelques notes de houblons nobles!!! J’en veux un seaux entier!!
