The front label of this bottle of Tuborg Green proudly displays the words "Copenhagen, Denmark." But close examination of the back label reveals that this brew was produced in Rajasthan, India.
The beer pours a pale straw body with a thin fizzy head.
The nose is of untoasted grains and rust.
The taste follows the nose. Rusty metal and grains up front with a bit of metallic twang on the back end. The mouthfeel is thin and watery, just like the beer.
As a general rule, it's a good idea to stay away from all the Tuborg products available in India. The sweet malt liquors and lagers available here, in their hop-less sweetness, have a kind of charm. This one fails even to deliver on that level. If you must drink something and this is your only option, you still might pause and ask yourself just how thirsty you are before trying it.

Re reviewing this as it's probably been a full year since I've last tried it. 500 ml can purchased from LCBO for $2.00 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - Weak pale golden straw color is poured. Nearly 2 fingers of head is poured but retention time isn't great and no lacing left as the head makes it's rapid descent. Very few bubbles actually and the beer is clear.
Smell - Slightly sweet, grainy aromatics, and the nose is fairly insubstantial. Not terribly impressed by this. At least it's not skunked like you would expect in the green bottles that are available.
Taste - Bland watery beer. Some sweetness but also kind of a very muted vegetative, earthy character. It's not bad it's just muted and generally lacking in flavor.
Mouthfeel - Nice clean finish, but the carbonation is fairly low, even for something in the style. Wish it a a bit more crispness.
Overall - Tuborg Green is not a terribly bad Euro pale Lager, it's just more muted and less offensive than many, but also lacks the boldness and tastiness that some of them due have. Basically, akin to the flavor, this is a muted representative of the style, that's fine after a hard day's work or some yard work, but definite;y won't blow anyone's socks off.
