Carlsberg Light has all the character and refinement of Carlsberg, but with a lighter taste and lower alcohol content. Carlsberg Light is a crisp lager brewed with the same care and craftsmanship as the entire Carlsberg Family.

Carlsberg Lager and Carlsberg Light are no longer being brewed in Canada - they are now importing Carlsberg Lager and Carlsberg Lite from Denmark.

Someone opened up an old stubby of this from god knows when although it was stored in a basement cold room for at least a decade so it was decent conditions. Now having not had this before I cant say for sure but almost positive the oxidization and aging made this a much better beer. There was actually some flavour, a malt profile, some fruitiness, and probably nothing like it was supposed to be. Still - maybe if you have a bottle or two of this hide it in the back of the cellar for a decade just for kicks!

Tastes like water with some artificial beer flavouring added. Only positive is that the fact it is so watery makes it drinkable.

Im not a big fan of light beer but this one is a exception. Nothing too interesting but nothing offensive. A little watery for my liking but it is a light beer.

For a light beer, this my preference so far. Much better than any other Light beer Ive tried. The aroma here is similar to the main brand, so much so that I am unable to tell the difference. Again, like the main brand, it is golden in colour with a mouthfeel that is not offensive to the tongue. However, the flavour has slightly less bite than the parent brew.

bottle: Perhaps my had skunked but this was brutal crap. You know when you have the PC Light & it tastes better something is wrong. Perhaps the worst beer I"ve had in years.

Shared a case of this stuff with my bro who just had a baby. People will be in and out of his house all week long, gotta have a supply of something.... Cracked a few open for myself for a review - corn aroma, light gold colour, watery flavour - typical light beer. However, I can actually taste some malt and theres even hints of hop here and there in the finish. On top of that the head was very thick and left some lacing. Definitely the best light beer Ive had and better than some of the regular macro lagers out there.

Corny aroma. Very light in colour. Still, it has the slight burnt taste that Carlsberg full-strength has, yet this one isnt nearly as good. Overall, the only comment I can make is that this is the best of the light beers, but thats not saying much.

On tap at the last drop in london ontario. Pours a goledn body, with a thick and frothy white head. Aromas consist of some hops, grass, and some corn. Taste is mildly hoppy, some bitters. Some sweet malt. Not offensive, just not much here. Yay for non-offensiveness
