Carl's special we purchased also on our way to the amalienborg in Kobenhavn.
There's nothing special to this beer, really. it's just a lager that pours sort of amber, but smells like a lager and tastes like a lager. Sure, it's drinkable but, bleh, no magic. for the price you should just stick to regular carlsberg while in denmark.

At the Billund Airport in Denmark.
I served my own .5L from the tap to give my glass a nice deep clear amber with a white head. There is full body and a good balance between the malty chew and the cutty bitter. I was supprised to enjoy this brew as much as I did, but I did.

The colour is deep amber; the finger thick white foam is airy, leaving some lacing.
The rather weak smell is malty and a bit roasted with some notes of nuts and bitter hops.
The taste is a bit neutral (although not for a Carlsberg lager) with some malt, nuts, gravy (salt?) and weak coffee. The aftertaste is a bit bitter with some roasted notes of almonds.
The carbonation is way too strong with small sharp bubbles.
I had this one at the Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen. All the restaurants seemed to share the same floating lid tank-system with Carlsberg Beer, Carlsberg Sort Guld and Carls Special. This one wasnt great but a bit more interesting than the others.
(this beer was regisrtred as an Märtzen, but I will now change the style to Vienna lager as it is more appropriate)

A: Started out really well with a two finger head, but quickly dissipated down to almost nothing. very minimal lacing. The beer itself is not the best color at a brown-gold.
S: Smell is not too impressive either. It is somewhat faint and one toned.
T: Tastes like good heavy brewed tea . It is weird to say, but that is what it reminds me of. It has a slightly malty aftertaste.
M: Descent. The carbonation is not too abrupt and it will enter the mouth smooth.
D: Moderate ease to drink with only a slight coating of the tongue from the drink.

Pours a reddish brown almost copper hue with a 2 finger foamy off white head that leaves little soapy lacing. A thin residue remains on the surface. You smell sweet malt immediately which is quickly overpowered by grain. Taste is slightly watery and with little malt sweetness or bitterness. I guess it could be described as balanced, but really not much there. Mouthfeel is the same, pretty thin. It's drinkable i suppose because it doesn't taste like much. Looks and smells better than it tastes.

This beer has a somewhat hoppy aroma that I found to be very pleasant, but a less bitter taste than expected. Very clean tasting beer that didn't taint my palate. The aftertaste is fresh and slightly bitter from the hops. At only 4.4% it is a peasant and very drinkable dinner beer.
