I know that I have tried one of the Tuborgs (Green/Gold) before and hated it, but it was years ago and I don't remember which it was. I like to give (most) beers another chance after a good long wait, so I bought a can of each variety to test them both. This can features art with a bunch of iPod-commercial-esque silhouettes dancing to, assuming the text on the can is correct, the "Liquid Soundtrack" that is Tuborg Green. I can already feel my hipness quotient increasing. Also, the fine print on the side says that this was brewed in Turkey.

Pours a pale yellow with a one-finger sparkling-white head that fades to a collar and lacing over the next minute. Smell is crisp and slightly sweet, but doesn't have any real discernible features.

Taste is quite nice, if not simple; I don't think this is the one I bought all those years ago. After the carbonation fades, some grainy sweetness is overtaken by an extremely faint hint of both hops and adjunct in the finish. This is a very heavily-carbonated beer, but I can't really fault it given the style. Watery and light-bodied, with very little aftertaste good or bad.

Decidedly average in almost every respect. I would never turn this down as it's quite inoffensive and mildly refreshing, but there are other EPLs that are both easier to find and better.

The one i reviewed was brewed by Ringnes in Norway i think, and I think thats why it doesn't get so good grade from me. i recall tasting a one bought in Denmark, and if i recall correctly, it was better than the one im reviewing now.
The apperence of this beer is OK. it has yellow/gold colour.
In my eyes its the taste that ruins it for me. it tastes like cheap generic lager.
if you like Tuborg Grøn, i would not recommend drinking those bought in Norway

500ml Can

Appearance - Clear gold/yellow colour with a large size frothy and fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is'nt a whole lot of lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, corn, hops

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains mixed with corn and a little bit of hops. There was also a little bit of an apple juice like sweetness. It finishes with a grainy slightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall - This beer isn't spectacular but it also isn't offensive in any way. I wouldn't rush out to buy it again but it's very drinkable. The slight sweetness make it stand out a little bit from the hundreds of other beers in its class.

Got a gigantic mug of this in Rome, basically I was sick of red wine. Was pale yellow with little head. No prominent aromas to speak of save for a whiff of hops. Flavor was mostly like a watered down Euro-pils, light bitter and some hops. Was good softness to it, but as drinkable as it was so is water when you're thirsty. It's good when you're desperate for a beer.

A: poured a pale yellow. little white cream like head,standing till the end with little lacing.
S - pilsner malt. Medium strength smell,citrus aroma.
Taste is light and malty with a very light hop finish.
M: The light body is slightly grainy and low carbonated.
Drinkability: Decent, if you like this kind of beer.

Pale yellow appearance with lots of head the fizzes away quickly. Smell is sweet, picked up some grain and malt.

Taste is very malty with a caramel finish, picked up grain but overall pretty bland. Thin bodied with poor carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter and malty.

Overall, an unimpressive generic Euro Lager. No features that are worth bragging about, no reason to drink this

Clean & chemically with some malts.

Pours a hazy, golden yellow colour that looks like urine. It has plenty of carbonation that settles and a pour head that disappears very fast.

Chemical type flavours with some corn & hops plus a slightly off taste. Has a strange & unpleasant aftertaste as well.

Thin bodied with lots of fizz. Quite smooth overall with crisp but slightly dry finish.

A very poor beer & only just drinkable.

500ml shiny emerald green can, Danish macro-brewing jobs now apparently off-shored to Turkey.

This beer pours a clear pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, and weakly foamy bone-white head, which leaves a decent circumference-spanning curtain of sudsy lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of musty cereal grain, a twinge of nail polish remover, and mild grassy, skunky hops. The taste is semi-sweet, crackery pale malt, much like a real pilsener, until that clammy corn mash character kicks in, severely curtailing any inherent crispness for the style, with a slight medicinal booziness, and weedy, somewhat reduced in its skunk factor hops.

The carbonation is a bit high, and prickly in its tight frothiness, the body on the light side, kind of oily, and smooth in that pandering, pithy way. It finishes clean, but more like a cleaned sidewalk, the adjunct graininess trailing off, with a less than comforting echo of skunky vegetation.

Not nearly the skanky mess that is its "Gold' sibling, which may have everything to do with the can vs. green bottle deal. Still, a sub-standard Euro-lager, and not a 'Pilsener' as proclaimed on the label. Not something I would be happy to see available at venue-pricing levels, given that sporting event sponsor-happy Carlsberg is the ultimate owner of this pseudo-swill.

look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Poured from a can into a Hoegaarden pint glass in low altitude Galway, Ireland, on October 25th, 2010. Pours a five finger head that collapses in seconds. It's a clear urine yellow, but at least it doesn't appear over-carbonated. Unappealing.

Smell: One light note of stale barley.

Taste: A flat note of barley, unpronounced, a slight hint of water, and a nearly pleasant upshot of cream in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Not enough cream on the open. A bit too wet, especially through the finish, but not as watery as other garbage lagers.

Drinkability: Hey, it's cheap, innit?

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.

Had at Toronto International Airport.

A: Slightly draker yellow bordering on orange with active carbonation and thin head.

S: Generically clean, not much smell.

T/M: Relatively well-carbonated with slightly medicinal hop bite at the end. Other than that, some adjunct malt flavor, not much.

D: Drinkable? Yes. But medicinal hop taste is slightly off-putting.

A - Poured out a clear, straw yellow color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left minimal lacing.

S - It smelled of grains and caramel. There was a slight skunky aroma.

T - It tasted of sweet caramel and grains. There was bitterness present but it wasn't from hops.

M - It was crisp, sharp and dry. A light bodied lager.

D - This is an okay lager. I'd like to try it out of something other than a green bottle.

500ml can poured into pint glass july5 2010

A clear pale yellow with a fast falling fingers worth of head that left no lace

S skunky sweet grains and some sour corn

T sadly it tastes as it smells but with more adjuncts and some dry cereal

M thin and on the flat side

D I like better flavor in my beer, tastes like our macros in North America and that's nothing to be proud of

nothing worth trying here I can only imagine how skunked a green bottle of the stuff would taste, I wouldn't go looking for this beer if I was you

can into a pint glass...Pour a of light see through piss water, light white head, gone pretty quickly...Aroma is light malt on the front with the of so familiar pilsner of an American macro skunk on the back...The taste is lightly skunk, a little hops mostly just dead start to fine...Weak feel, easy to drink but there is no point.

Overall, this beer is nothing special at all, dont look to find or drink. On a positive note I drank this at the same time as a Carlsberg and this blows it out of the water. But I rated carlsberg an F so its not saying much.

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.

A- straw colored poured from the 33 cl green bottle (suspicions tell me this may be skunked, although I don't know if that would change much) head is small that dissapears to thin lacing.

S- I'm not a super smeller, so I tend to smell and drink throughout the entire experience and decide afterwards. This one is grassy and corny. Not much else going on here.

T- this eurolager is fizzy. Cooked veg and corn are sandwiched between grassy over cooked hops and a metalic taste I can't put my finger on. Luckily not noticeably skunked.

M- fizzy, thin and at times syrupy.

D- I can expect only so much out of this style. So when enjoying something like football on a summer afternoon, I'm content with something about as pedestrian as the actual activity. It also wasn't entirely offputting considering the potential skunkability. Decision- run of the mill macro

Can: Poured a bright golden color lager with a small bubbly white head with average retention. Aroma of light sweet adjunct and corn is not as bad as expected but no great either. Taste is dominated by adjunct with corn note easily distinguishable. Another cheaply brewed lager with no interesting feature.

33cl bottle poured into half pint glass

A- Pale straw yellow with a soapy 2 finger head reducing to faint crown very quickly with minimal lacing.

S- Grassy hop note, grain, a sticky syrupy malt note.

T- Reflects the nose - thin hop bitterness combined with a sticky sweet malt underbelly.

M- Thin, highly carbonated, spritzy

D- Another dull mass produced lager. Not much else to say really. Boring and instantly forgettable. I think on a blind taste test of Tuborg, Stella, Carlsberg, Budweiser,Miller etc i would be struggling to detect much difference really. Pass

Color is pale golden and has a light head. There was not much of an aroma to speak of, bland. The taste was crisp and was a bit refreshing with light carbonation. This beer comes across as a typical middle of the road Danish beer that does not offend.

From a 500 ml green can. Pours out a clear straw hue, creamy white head with moderate retention.

Clean grainy aroma, some corn in the background.

Things go downhill quickly in the flavour department, veggies and some industrial flavours dominate, an aftertaste of asphalt.

Mouthfeel is caustic and contains something of a chemical burning sensation, not very friendly at all.

Well then, here's a big pass here, makes me question what additives managed to make their way in here to give off this sort of result. It's crisp, I'll give it that, however I question whether this was attained through natural methods. The burning sensation still hasn't gone away either.

I got it in a green 33 cl can with a green and silver label with a royal crown on top - it doesn't look to inspiring.

A: The pour is clear golden with lot of bubbles in the liquid. The white head is really large and thick at first but as it slowly dissipates the head looks kind of soapy and uneven. Almost no lacings.

S: Not very strong in smell, but there's malt and bitterhops present together with a faint citric note. But there's also a corny smell.

T: Not strong in taste either. Almost exactly like the smell but the corn-taste is stronger than the smell.

M: Lots of medium-sized really rough bubbles. Body is medium. Aftertaste is bitter, but very short.

D: This is very easy to dring, but it doesn't stand out at all.

Pours a rather pale straw body with plenty of carbonation. Produces a bright white head that disappears quickly, leaving only a ring of residue clinging to the glass and body. Aroma is lacking - smells slightly like wet grass. Taste is almost non-existent, slight bitterness. There is a crisp mouthfeel when served just above freezing, but overall it's thin and watery. Drink it fast and cold. Wouldn't reach for another.

This pale Euro lager is made in Turkey. No to slightly annoying aroma, alevel above a bit skunky. Yellow body with fast fading white head. A bit thin and burning mouth feel, some taste of malts, and some other astringency. A beer for homeless alcoholics.

Picked this up for about 7.50 euro for a 6 pack of cans. Pours a light straw yellow into a pint glass with plenty of bubbles, head dissipates quickly leaving scattered patchy foam on top. Smells sweet but a bit skunky and just not very pleasant. Taste is mostly what you'd expect from an EPL - quite watery with a slight hoppy bite although that's followed by a strange metallic flavour. First few mouthfuls feel quite full and fizzy followed by a cleansing dryness on the palate although the carbonation seems to wear off in the glass very quickly. Drinkable enough beer if you're looking for something resonably refreshing and very light in flavour - could potentially quench a thirst when eating something spicy.

Had at ITC Mahashtra in Mumbai 8/24/09
This beer pours a pale straw yellow with a thin fluffy one finger of white head. Head retains alright, leaving big soapy lacing on the side of the glass. Nose is sweet, corn based adjuncts, with a hint of grass. Taste has a malt character that is not detectable in the nose. Definite presence of grass, grains, and corn. Finish has a bite to it, though no real hop is present. Light bodied, high carbonation, feels very thin, somewhat watery. Goes down easily, but nothing very special.
