If you haven't tried Carlsberg yet go out and buy yourself a six pack. You'll love it!

My favorite beers are the Sam Adams family of beers however, when you drink Carlberg you will be very pleasantly surprised.

One of the best beers I have ever tried. Now I will drink it next to one of my favorites, Heineken. ;-)

Carlberg kicks arse!!

Carlsberg... that's a second international beer brand.
And it is a typical Scandinavian lager.
I can not understand how Carlsberg may be compared with American Bud like Aracauna did. These are completely different beers.
Carlberg has meduim yellow color, much darker than Bud's, full malt body with slight hops smell and aftertaste bitterness.
General taste is very harmonic. It is mild, but not so monotone till flavourless as Bud is.
Barley malt feels more vivid in Carlberg... at least for me :)
...
Anyway... Carlsberg is the first brewery, which refused of using wild yeasts. They started separate pure yeasts and propagate them. This method succeeded in 1883 and still propagated yeasts are called Saccharomyces carlsbergensis.

This is the lager I compare other lagers to. It's light gold in colour with a relatively large, foamy head. It's generally not too carbonated, and is a clean, refreshing mouthfeel. The lager is has a slight dryness on the tongue and finishes with a slightly bitter after-taste.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Was one of my staples in Europe as well as back in Minnesota.

pours a crystal clear straw yellow color with a good two finger white head that holds very well and some nice sheets of sticky lace. slight weak herbal nose from the hops. light clean malt taste with a slight black pepper taste at the end. mouthfeel light, crisp tight carbonation. a clean light pilsener thats just right for anytime you just want a cold beer.

Take a second and read your bottle of Carlsberg. What do you see? Look closely and you can find the brew's slogan, "Probably the world's best beer." Well, I won't go quite that far, but Carlsberg certainly is a quality beer. To wit:

This brew appears in your glass as a perfectly clear pale golden color with a thich, foamy white head. Its smell is gently nutty and fairly light. Carlsberg starts rather malty with a faint flavor that seems to my tongue to be lime. It is very light bodied with slgith spice and bitter flavors, though I found the beer to be complex enough to defy solid catagorization. The beer finishes smooth, dry, and longing with a wheat note. It leaves only a small (though somewhat unpleasant) aftertaste. Essentially, every mouthful of Carlsberg begs another.

If your experience with Carlsberg differs from mine, it may be because my bottles were brewed at the Carib Brewery in Champs Fluers, Trinidad; which is about as far from the Netherlands as one can get and still find this beer. This may also explain why I thought Carlsberg was very much like Carib Lager without the aftertaste. As my mother suggested, perhaps Carib Brewery makes their signature brew and Carlsberg on the same line and just uses different bottles for each. A ridiculous suggestion, but amusing and illustrative nonetheless.
