This beer has a very unique taste to it that you will not find anywhere else. The best thing to drink on a rainy winterday in the middle of the baltic see. Beatiful name too: Groen Oel. Golden color, nice carbonation. Unique hop aroma. Some kind of hey taste. Well it is a mass product. My favourite mass product Pilsner.

A: No head and is almost a clear golden color
S: It has a toned down hop smell.
T: It has a bitter finish without the rich hop taste that is desired.
M: Bubbly in mouth. Nothing substantial in this arena.
D: Since it has a bitter finish, your palate gets slightly tainted.

Poured into a beer mug from a 22oz bottle. Dull yellow colour with a 1 finger head that vanished by the time the first glug was over. Smell was nothing to relate to except that of a normal lager, although smelt rather fresh. Taste was a pleasant surprise, nice and crisp with a sweetness that lingered for a while which ended with a bitter note. Mouthfeel was rather thin and was very mediocre on fizz. Drinkable anytime of the year, in the genre of a Carlsberg / Heineken.

750ml bottle in Rome, Italy
Light white foam.
Not much of a smell; like any run-of-the mill lager
Nice flavor; mild, light, low hops
Light feel, medium carbonation
Very drinkable, light, cold, refreshing. Nothing huge in the taste / flavor department, but everything else I had in Italy beer-wise was so bad, this stood out. Drink the wine. Average, but very drinkable.

very little head. disippates quickly to a thin lace. clear gold color. ample carbonation bubbles rising through the beer with occasional large bubbles as well.
decent aroma. straw/hay with hop pellet grassiness.
sufficient bitterness for balance, but wouldnt put off the average macro drinker. malt presence is just noticeable as the flavor finishes rather quickly.
mouthfeel is light and crisp.
not much to add as the drinkability score sums it up. passably average.

Purchsed in Oslo, Norway in August 2012 - consumed March 2013. 4 pack was like $25 or so...lugged the last two home (no way I would leave 2 of those in the hotel at that price). Poured from 0.5L can into tulip. ABV says 4.5%; but all writig is norwegian. Pours a golden color with a finger of head - actualy nice lacing and rim of head remains. Smell is skunky fruity "heineken"like. Taste is a bit fruitier than most of the style, but its not bad at all. Nice euro lager flavor, sweet, slight hops, but honestly its pretty good. Maybe its the slight "age" and transport in a suit case, but its pretty good.

I did not like the appearance of this beer. It is too pale and looks like apple juice. The smell is not impressive either, and you hardly know it's beer you have in front of you before you actually sip it. But the taste isn't bad. Not great, but there's nothing in particular wrong with it. It's quite a mild beer, and easy to drink, but without being unpleasantly sweet. I personally would have preferred a bit more taste, but beyond that, it's really not a bad beer. It works.
I should mention that I'm drinking a beer produced locally here in Norway by Ringnes, on license from Tuborg. This particular product has been heavily pushed by one of the largest grocery chains in Norway lately, and as the cheapest beer they carry, it has become a phenomenal success over the last year.
I suppose one should avoid these big, evil breweries who aim for total domination of the beer market, but what can ya do. It's a cheap, ok beer, and I'm a poor student. I'm sorry.

0.5 l bottle in Budapest
Very foamy white head, light golden colour with tons of carbonation bubbles, good and sticky lacing. Strong grassy hops aroma. Taste is mostly sweet grainy malt, very weak hops, somewhat industrial feel to it. Carbonation medium, ligh/medium body.
I liked it, but have to admit I was quite thirsty, I suspect the taste would possible seem worse some other time.

I recently reviewed the Tuborg Gold and saw the Tuborg Green was on sale, so decided to give it a try.
Pours a pale straw colour with head that seems to stick around longer than I expected. Very small amount of lacing. Smells a little bit grassy with some grains, but mostly faint. Flavour is slightly sweet, nothing off about this. Carbonation is nice for the style. I actually prefer this to the Gold by quite a bit.

Can on an airplane over to Copenhagen.
Pours a pale straw color with a half-finger white head. The head quickly recedes into a sparse wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.
Smells of sweet pilsner malts and not much else.
Tastes a bit better than it smells. Sweet pilsner malt flavors with the sweetness coming from indistinct adjuncts kick things off. Midway through the sip hints of earthy hop oil even things out a bit before carrying through to a mildly bitter ending.
Mouthfeel is OK. It's a bit on the thin side with decent carbonation.
Drinkability is not that great. I finished my glass but would not choose to have another.
Overall this certainly wasn't a terrible beer but it's not worth seeking out. A step up from BMC in the states but not by much.

This is a part of a triple parallel review of Tuborg Grøn (the standard Pilsner), Tuborg Hvid (a variant inspired by pale ale) and Tuborg Blå (a darker, sweeter lager). The Hvid and Blå beers are sold in the summer of 2007, the future of those two is uncertain.
The colour is yellow with a tint of gold. The foam sinks down to a white lid quite quickly.
The smell is mild, almost discreet. Some malty notes, some sweetness and a hint of yeast. Not very exciting, but still OK.
The taste is mild and balanced. Some dry notes of malt, some light bitterness. The aftertaste is dry with some notes of white bread. It is very clean, but it borders to the boring. I still like it as a thirst drencher and a beer for spicy food.
The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles are very small. The liquid is mid-watery.
A clean Danish pilsner, without the sweetness of many Scandinavian beers.
