Drank alot of this in Asia at the hotel taps. readily available, very easy drinking, nothing remarkable to speak of in terms of flavor. I don't know if there might be some preservative added to this stuff in China, but after a few long sessions drinking this and watching football several of us developed a little irritation in our throat, resulting in a chronic mild cough. For my gang it is now and ever shall be the 'Carlsberg Cough'!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 16.9 ounce can into an 8 ounce sampler. There is no indication of the brewery location on the can- if I didn't know any better, I might assume Denmark. A moderate pour threatened to overfill the glass. I back off, let the head subside a little, and top it off. The head is snow white and fairly sticky. The beer is a pale golden with moderate carbonation.
The beer has a very light aroma not easily detectable, but basically just a light lager aroma with just a touch of skunk and very very subtle aromatic hops. A little bit of hop bitterness is detectable on the back of the tongue. Some mineral qualities are also apparent. The beer has a fairly dry, clean finish. Some pleasant burpiness ensues. This brings out maybe a little bit of a very subtle caramel flavor with a little metal and some alcohol.
This beer is easy drinking and lacks any strong adjuncty flavors and is a pretty good session brew, but nothing very distinguished. I think I paid around 8 bucks for a four pack of pint-plus cans, which isn't too bad of a deal. This beer is only available in one store in my town that I know of (Hennesey Grocery).

Had a bottle at a Calgary Pub in the Kensington area with dinner, poured into a pub glass. Looks darker than many other Euro lagers, a yellow to just shy of amber hue with a smattering of white bubbles. Smells like grainy pale malt, grassy and slightly spicy hops, skunk, and a decent whiff of sulphur. Palate features a light cracker malt backbone, some DMS, green grassy hops, subdued lemon and lime rind, white grape notes, and a noticeable but reduced residual sweetness compared to many of its Euro pale lager cousins; perhaps this is what earns it a bona-fide pils designation. Very fizzy and light-bodied as one would expect, yet reasonably creamy and smooth. Not too bad all things considered. The usual flaws found in green-bottled mass market imports are reduced or absent. Considerably better than Heineken (to name but one example) even if it remains pretty mainstream in overall feel.
