How did this beer end up as an option on my Atlanta-Rio de Janiero flight? It sure surprised me. 330 ml can, made in both the UK and Denmark, on to the beer:

Good clarity in this beer. The bone-white head is patchy and sticks very well on top the pale gold colored beer. A little steely in the aroma, but also with mild malt sweetness. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth and in flavor. It doesn´t feature the grainy and rough edges of the usual macro lager. A sweet lager...with light tones of wood. And, if the following makes sense, has texture. A surprise of a macro lager...better than Stella, Heineken, and even its brother Carlsberg.

A 440ml can with a BB of June 2012. Picked up cheap from Morrisons some time ago.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden colour with light carbonation and some floating sediment. Forms a small head of white foam that disappears rapidly. Aroma of light malt with hints of sweetness, overcooked veg and faint stewed hops. Slightly stale.

Tastes of light malt with a dry finish. Subtle hints of overcooked veg, corn and stewed hops. A slight sweetness and a stale cardboard note in the background. Dry but mild upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is dry, tingly and watery. Aftertaste of overdone veg and faint malt.

Pretty typical for a macro lager - bland and inoffensive. A relatively clean taste, but not much to hold your interest. Not really recommended - spend your hard earned cash on something with character.

Served in 330ml green bottle
Nice golden beer. Good head to start, recedes rapidly within a minute or two but retains nice glacing against the glass. Nice crisp taste on the tongue with good fizz but perhaps a bit too flat and hoppy towards the end of the bottle. Not too heavy so it's a decent session beer. Worth a go

2.95/5  rDev +8.9%

tall silver 50ml can. best before jan 07.

pours clear light golden. little carbonation. head forms a frothy white consistency. medium sized but settles to a thick lace after a few minutes.

aroma is light, but mainly malt sweetness comes through. a slight sharp hoppiness when swirled.

taste has thick malt behind it, which probably isnt best for this style. would think it would be much thinner and lighter. its not unsavory though. little bitterness or hop flavor, but it doesnt come across as too sweet.

pretty standard lager, and pretty forgettable as well.

Really disappointing for such a big brand.

a - in a can

s - smells metallic, sour

t - awful, had to pour it away

m - bearable

o - I was probably happily drinking this when I was young but no more. It seems to have added fizz, why? Maybe bearable ice cold.

Really I think this is one of the lagers people generally drink just for the effect as the taste is all rather bland and does not have a great deal going for it. Certainly not a great beer as their adverts like to suggest anyway. Probably the best beer in the World, indeed!

3.08/5  rDev +13.7%

A clear light straw colored beer, a rather small white head but leaving good lacing.

The smell is of malt, sweet white bread, some citric and some faint hoppiness.

Sweet cornflakes and newly baked bread, some faint sourness going over to a dryer bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, a full and clean body.

Certainly not the best beer in the world, but good enough.

Picked up a green, 275 ml bottle in the UK.

Slammed into a glass, which produced a big, fat, slightly yellowish head. Typical lager yellow color.

Smell was hoppy, grassy and fairly skunky. No fruits came though.

Not a lot of taste at first, but then a fair amount of sweetness came though. Nothing other than sugar, though. Could taste some grain and hops as it finished with some bitterness.

Mouthfeel was less than impressive. Very light and watery, imo.

This could pass for a US macro-lager.

2.5/5  rDev -7.7%

Pours a clean golden/ yellow color with small to no head. In the aroma, sweet and a small pilsner hop. In the taste, a dry pils hop, and a somewhat skunky bitterness. A smooth mouthfeel, with a dry, clean aftertaste. Ok lager, small dry bitter is nice, but nothing outstanging.

I spotted carlsberg export, an absolutely new brew for me up in scotland recently. I ordered it, expecting it to be good, as i've never been really against carlsberg, which brews a couple of OK things. I didn't really find any distinguishing marks from regular carlsberg, the pour, the nose and the taste in the most part are almost identical- identically macro. it passes the test but really doesn't make it worth the hunt.

This gets an identical review to the normal carlsberg as im convinced its the same bland pee.

Pint served in imperial pint glass.

A- Pale appple juice yellow, thin whispy head, minimal head. no lacing.

S- Not a lot, some faint grassy malts.

T- Watery in the beginning changing to an inoffensive faint hop bite in the finish. Finish is quick but its so creamy, did this turn to milk in my mouth?? Weird.

M- Thin and watery but the finish is so creamy it is confusing.

D- Mediocre bland lager. Identical in every way to the normal Carlsberg, and same abv, so what makes it export?? Not sure. Gets a lower mark due to an export should be having a more robust hoppiness.
