500mL can purchased from my liquor store in Edmonton. Also noteworthy that this is my 50th review on BA. Carlsberg is one of the first import beers I've ever had, so it seemed like a fair beer for a milestone review.
I chilled the fuck out of this particular can - it's the only way to drink Carlsberg. It pours a semi-dark yellow with 2 fingers of head. The head is very silky looking and lasts forever it seems. There's a column of bubbles rising up the glass which is almost hypnotic to look at. It's like a lava lamp - very cool.
The smell of the beer is extremely malty and there's only a hint of bitterness in the aroma. Overall, it is a very straightforward smell. The head of the beer tastes very metallic. The taste is more metallic than most canned beers, but it also offers a really nice hoppy taste. It's very standard for a pilsner, but there aren't too many flaws either. Honestly, the bottled version is far superior to the canned one since it doesn't have the metallic taste. I'll say : this is the first time a canned beer for me has had this noticeable of a metallic taste to it. Perhaps I'll review the bottled version another day (or even better, on tap), but it's just... average. Oh well, I'm totally drinking it again for nostalgia's sake.
