to me this is a better than average light beer, widely available and far superior to most of the other beers of the same color and light flavor profile. the pour is tall and yellow glden in color, with a few inches of slowly fading white foam. the nose is pilsener malts, could be german or czech, with that grassy fresh cut hay vibe, and some nondistinct yeast strain and just enough hops to still be called a beer. the taste is identical, seemingly with a touch of white wheat malt too, but the pils malt shines here. its dumbed down a little from the genuine article, but it fills a large void in the beer world of a full flavored beer that is golden in color and easy drinking. its much better on tap than in the bottle, and to me is a worthy all day beer when you are trying to not fill up or get too heavily buzzed. light in feel, but not watery at all. there is still some body present. the finish is quick and this is all up not a bad beer for what it is.

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.

Carlsberg's version of a European lager impresses at first, but falls flat where it counts. The beer pours a pale golden body that's filled to the brim with a rushing swarm of tiny bubbles. It's no surprise, therefore, that the beer sports an impressively thick, snow-white head with plenty of staying power.

The beer smells of sweet, untoasted grains. It tastes mostly of metal, quickly followed by a rush of sweet corn. The sweetness creates the illusion of fruit as I reach the last few sips in the glass. The feel of the beer on the palate is more robust than some lagers; I suppose it complements the sweet flavor nicely.
