Tuborg Classic has a thick, slightly off-white head, and a very clear, deep golden appearance, with some bubbles streaming up the glass. A decent amount of lacing is left behind. The aroma is bready, but some water and hops can be picked up. Taste is predominantly of bread, with an underlying faint hop spice. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Tuborg Classic finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, this is a pretty good beer to try; it was sent to me from Denmark.

A: Dark golden brown in color with no sustained head.
S: Smells of 90% malt and 10% hops. Nothing too special
T: Mainly a malt taste lacking any significant hop complexity.
M: Will leave a slight film on tongue after prolonged drinking.
D: Great party/event beer because it is easy to consume.

The Tuborg has a very clear yellow-gold colour. The head is snow white and very compact.
It smells like hop with some malt tones.
The same goes for the taste. A plain hop taste with some bitter and malt snears here and there. Still quite crisp.
The aftertaste has some unpleasant oxidising tones.
This is a very plain beer. It is a beer, that’s why it is called a beer and nothing more.

Ut Vivat, Crescat, Floreat!

Tried this beer as well as Carlsberg Pilsner at their old brewery in Copenhaven. This was definitely the better beer.

Had a pint of this on-tap while travelling in Denmark on a patio in the shade in downtown Copenhagen. Cost was 50 Danish kroner. Served cold into an unmarked pint glass.

Appearance - a rich coppery amber color. Rather clear with few bubbles. Minimal head too. Still a very appetizing beer on a warm summers day.

Smell - minimal aromas, some lager yeasty aromatics, and some mild malts, maybe with a trace of caramel.

Taste - crisp, mildly bitter with some malt influence throughout every sip. Hop presence is very low, but still comes of crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel - smooth and clean yet not too refined that would cause the beer to lose its edge. Mildly dry finish and medium carbonation throughout.

Overall - better than I expected. Missing some of the bigger hop presence of other Vienna lagers I've had (Boston lager) this still delivered a very tasty and satisfying punch. Maybe slightly enhanced by the fact this was on a patio on vacation in Denmark on a beautiful summer day, but this is something I would repeat if available enact home.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: A dusty malt nose with some floral notes
Appearance: Bright sparkling light blonde
Flavor: A mild clean taste with a slight bitter end. Overall; just not much there.
Mouthfeel: Light and bubbly
Overall Impression: A light flavored beer that would make a decent session beer. Has a bitter hang that lasts a bit. Not bad, but don’t cross state lines to experience.

The colour is yellow with a tint of gold; the white foam is quite compact, but it dissolves quickly.

The smell is medium strong with a bittersweet feel. There are notes of malt, aroma hops (somewhat artificial) and salt.

The carbonation is fresh and not too sharp.

The taste got a distinct taste of white bread and diacetyl, giving it a robust body. There is some sweetness (toffee?) with a burned note. The finishing flavour got a dry touch of dark rye bread. In the aftertaste, I noticed a rather mild bitterness and some sweet malt.

A “Classic” in Denmark is a lager that got some more body and a little more gold in the colour. I found this one better than most of the standard Danish pale lagers.

Tuborg Classic…..on tap at hotel bar in First Hotel Vesterbro….Copenhagen

Appearance-dark gold color with a very large defined white foamy head with large carbonation, the head stays around for a second but then dies down.

Smell-grainy with a balanced profile of malted wheat and some piney hops, not that aromatic, light alcohol

Taste/Mouthfeel-crisp profile with a light to medium mouthfeel, again light but balanced, bits of breadyness, light hops on the tongue, grainyness and alcohol mix. Nothing special at all, not offensive either.

Overall-better than Carlsberg and regular Tuborg among the main Danish macros, that’s about all that can be said for it.

feel like I need to rate this beer in context-- this is by far the best of the shitty danish macros. it’s a tiny bit malty, which is just enough to keep me from falling asleep on the bar. since 99% of the time in copenhagen it was either this or carlsberg, it may deserve an even higher score than I gave it.
