The smell is a little skunkier than most beers that come in a green bottle. I didn't realize this was considered a German Pilsner (that explains the slightly increased bitterness over the likes of Heineken and Grolsch). This is only my second German Pilsner, but I have to say that I like Bofferding a little bit better.

Floral hop aroma, moderate grain, crackery.

Slightly sweet, with a big herbal hop presence and a moderately bitter finish. It's a tad malty sweet, but fairly clean and refreshing.

Pours a clear golden colour with a thin bubbly head. The nose has some sweet malt breadiness with only a hint of hoppiness. The taste brings much of the same with a bit of yeast and grass. It almost finishes as soon as it hit your tongue with a crisp dryness. Honestly doesn't taste like much. An okay beer but nothing to write home about.

Carlsberg from Danmark. The first time I heard about that beer was during he fifa world cup in 2006 and I think it was the official sponsor for the beer.


So the look of it: A clear yellow golden color, lots of carbonation with about half of a finger. I find the appearance a bit too light.


The smell of it: Definitely some hops here. You smell the sweetness also. Smell more like a larger than a Pilsener


The taste of it: Remind of that Heineken but with a bit more sweet to it. Some malt but on the finish is a bit dry but not too much and the finish is sour. I did enjoy the sour on the end


So overall would I recommend it ? Sure, if you find it on special this is a nice beer I did more enjoy that beer than the heineken.

Smell: slightly acidic apple.
Look: straw yellow with medium heading that dissipates relatively quickly.
Taste: a little bitter for a lager, venturing close to pilsner territory. Great balance with the apple notes, and mild floral hop finish. Grassy malt undertone.
Feel: high levels of carbonation.
Overall: unassumingly complex for a lager. Great balance.

Translucent pale yellow. Nice foamy head. Smell reminds me of empty beer bottles in need of recycling. Taste is light with a nice amount of carbonation. Has a bitter finish that lingers a bit too long. While I like this style of beer, this one seems a bit lacking compared to others. Not horrible, but just ok.

Green bottle. Euro roots. Not much else to say - it's a decent beer, but it doesn't do much to set itself apart from other beers in this style.

Poured from a 330 CL bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- ahhh, the green glass skunkiness strikes again.
Appearance- Straw yellow with almost no head
Taste- has an almost citrus flavor with some grain thrown in
Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation.
Overall- an ok beer. I am sure this beer has suffered in the US market when craft beer took off.

Carlsberg looks like a relatively decent lager, and if you temporarily disable your taste buds - it might even fool you that it is a good lager, as it is incredibly smooth. However, as I was unable to do so, I was overcome by the incredibly metallic aftertaste, which completely ruined any sense of flavor for me.

Just a standard German pilsner; smoother going down than a Heineken, and that's all you need to know about this one.

This may be the least favorite beer I've ever had. The only thing I get out of this one is skunk.
