A slightly better beer that Carlsbergs Lager, but I think it’s a matter of upbringing. Either you were brought up on Tuborg or Carlsberg in Copenhagen when I was young, and for me it was Tuborg.

Unpleasant aroma, very bitter taste. Sour as fox piss with too much carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 The German Rasthof (truck stop) beer - the first can of beer I ever bought legally. Grainy malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Slightly sweet corn/barley malt flavor. Sold at every Autobahn rest stop. Average but the can is pretty cool though.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Canned, in-flight. I will hand it to Scandinavian Air: they serve only Scandinavian beers, even if they are pale lagers. Not a Bud or Heinie in sight. This was in a can labeled "Tuborg Green Label," which is now being pitched to young consumers. It pours out a big meringue head that keeps you from getting to your beer for a while. Smell is very sweet, in Rolling Rock territory. Sweetness is not as evident in the taste however. Maltiness is a little hard to taste until after a few sips. Then some malt and hops come out as you swallow. But it also comes across a little too thin. I wonder what they serve on the Belgian airline.

This was probably the first beer I ever tasted... I was not "impressed then", and I’m not impressed now. Pale golden with a thick white head. Sweet, chemical, grassy aroma. Harsh but still a very watery beer with a finish filled with nothingness...(is that a word?)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big, loose, sudsy, white head and golden body with abundant carbonation. Aroma is buttery and wheaty with a hint of nuts. Light flavor but there is some decent crispness here. Pale malt quality and hops are detectable. Body is a touch oily. I didn’t find this to be too bad and it was actually quite drinkable. Then again, my bottle was as fresh as possible because I know for a fact that I got this beer on the same day that it was distributed.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Yellow with carbonated head. Carbonation boils in the mouth leaving little chance of tasting anything. Left me with heartburn. Sweet insipid acidic, pretty unpleasant.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale gold color, with not much aroma or flavor. Tastes watery and sweet at the finish. Subtract 0.3 if this is skunked.
