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.

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.

The colour is yellow with a tint of gold (6 EBC), the twi finger head is off-white and airy. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is a bit frowsy with notes of cardboard, grains and alcohol. Hints of honey and caramel. It is not very inviting.

The taste is malty with some hints of toffee and gunpowder. The sweetness fades leaving room for bread and dough. Medium body. The aftertaste got some French loaf and an anonymous bitterness. The finish is a bit heavy with mostly sweet malts.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is mid-smooth and a bit dry.

For most people, this is not only the definition of “beer” but the definition of “premium beer”. I don’t agree, as I think this one got a bit too much off-flavours.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

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.

Carlsberg Export, ABV: 5.0%.
500 ml can, 15.50 SEK (inc. refund) at Systembolaget.

Today (2 sep 2011) it's the 200th anniversary of JC Jacobsen, founder of Carlsberg, and inventor of the Carlsberg lager yeast that revolutionized the world of beer - a blogger was kind enough to remind me - and that calls for a Carlsberg! Even though it's one of the most popular beers in Sweden, I had (before this day) yet to try the 'Export'.

A: The liquid is see-through, the colour is pale gold, and the head is white and kind of cheesy - some lacing occurs.

S: Malt, doughy bread, mild hops, citrus and a hint of apples. In the beginning I get some sour, yeasty or chemical notes that soon fades away.

T: Mild, doughy bread, with hints of malt, citrus, butter, hops and water. A very balanced and neutral taste, with no nasty off-flavours, that really doesn't intimidate anyone.

M: The liquid is soft and creamy, with decent carbonation, and both body and bitterness are small to medium. High gulpability factor - as expected.

O: I can see why it sells - it doesn't taste bad and is very easy to drink - it's a lot better than other standard lagers. A party beer, a lawn-mower beer, or an everyday food beer. It's the easy way out beer - but probably not the best beer in the world.

275 mL green bottle poured into a pilsner glass. I bought these from the Co-Op on a buy-one-get-one-free offer. I mainly bought them for cooking purposes (lamb chops in a crock pot with peas, carrots, potatoes, whatever other veg you have around, then put cheese on top just prior to serving--try it!)

A: clear, pale yellow in colour, lots of bubbles.

S: lagery, not much going on--some grassy/grains and not much else

T: bitter and slightly--not horrible but not really enjoyable either

M: fizzy and carbonated

O: better for cooking than for drinking, but not incredible either way--I think I like normal Carlsberg better.
