COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Den mørke lagerøl er brygget efter Carlsbergs ældste opskrift, som blev til for 150 år siden. Det er en tør og fyldig øl, med en lang blød eftersmag, hvor du bl.a. kan fornemme karamel og nødder. Duften har lidt lakrids, og frugter som æble og pære over sig.

English: Original Dark Lager is brewed according to J.C. Jacobsen’s original recipe. The colour is chestnut. It has a Hersbrucker hop aroma while the floor malted Munich malt adds a caramel character. The carbonisation is gentle and the hop bitterness is soft. Enjoy at 6-8º.

Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
’Münchener’ Dunkel made by Jacobsen, a brewery opened by Carlsberg in 2005 and named after Carlsberg’s 19th-century founder, allegedly brewed to a recipe by himself. Light beige, moussy, stable head, colour a deep chestnut brown with bronze hue, clear. Aroma of caramel, roasted beef, barbecue sauce, walnuts, black pepper. Malty taste, well-rounded, caramelly and nutty, smooth with light sourish touch, leafy hop bitterness in the finish, medium thin mouthfeel, but it’s a lager after all. And an interesting one indeed.

Klar rødbrun farge med et lite hvit skum. Aroma av malt, frukt, blomst og hint av sjokolade. Smaken følger aroma, men her er det mer røstet malt.

Bottle. Mahogany clear. Nutty bready malty nose. Some herbal, continental- style hops. Medium full body, some malty sweets, some chocolate. Bit sterile again, but manages some flavours still. Easy, light hazelnutty. Enjoyable.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Dark ruby pour with a small offwhite head. Pretty weak aroma, dominated by caramelly malty notes and some slightly burnt aromas. Some fruityness is also appearent. The aromas appearing when you taste the beer, is very interesting compared to the ones in the nose. Semi-enjoyable.

A very decent dark lager. Smooth and malty with a deep dark ruby appearance. Nuttiness and brown sugar predominate.Tried at the Carlsberg brewery during my visit.
