A friend brought a bottle of this back from Denmark for me. It's nothing special, just a basic lager but a bit more alcohol. It's slightly sweet, and the color isn't half bad. Not much of a smell to it. Definately drinkable though, and I like it better than regular Carlsberg.

Slightly sweetish malty start, with a grainy sort of finish, also a bit hoppy aswell, probably one of the better lagers from Carlsberg, but that doesn't say much really, but its drinkable.

Carlsberg Sort Guld has a thick, white head and a very clear deep gold appearance, with a fair amount of lacing streaming up; splotchy lacing is left behind. The aroma is faint, but a bread smell can be picked up. Taste is of barley and sweetness, but some hop bitterness is present to round out the flavor. Mouthfeel is medium, and Carlsberg Sort Guld finishes refreshing and mostly dry. Overall, I really enjoyed this (10 oz. can) beer and recommend giving it a sample.

This beer slides right down. Nothing special about the taste, it's easy down, and easily forgotten. The smell might be a bit sweetish, but that's ignorable. Also: my specimen had an alcohol content of 5.8%, not 5.6%. Not neccesarily a bad thing for this kind of beer.

To be honest, I bought this beer with taking a picture of the bottle more than reviewing it in mind.

Some 15 years ago, this was the beer of choice for many of my friends as it was “more luxurious” than the weaker Pils “Carlsberg Hof” that I preferred, I thought this one got too much bread in its taste.


The colour is pale gold; the finger thick white compact head leaves no lacing.

The smell is saccharine-sweet with notes of loaf and wheat-dough. There are some mild notes of yeast and metallic bitterness too.

The taste is… exactly as I remembered it! Lots of bread-like malt, some mild yeast, quite sweet. Medium bodied. In the aftertaste, some anonymous bitterness is blended with the rather strong taste of wet bread and alcohol.

The carbonation is medium strong, medium sized bubbles. The liquid is somewhat creamy.

Still, I think this is the least good one among the Carlsberg standard beers.

Souvenir from Sweden

A - big foamy head with sticky lacing. I guess that's good. Color is a generic clear clear gold.

S - a bit of milky baby vomit plus aluminum plus straw

T - bitter slightly malty. better that other euro macros but only slightly

M - thick and creamy but stingy and bitter

D - aside from poor smell and mediocre taste. It's fine.

33 cl can. Meaningless beer with an unpleasant taste. Doesn’t even work as a thirst quencher.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Pours clear golden with a large creamy white head that takes some time to sink. Leaves decent lacings.

S: Sweet malt with a high amount of corn. Some bitter notes.

T: Creamy bready corn, somewhat sweet, but sadly the corn is very dominant. Some faint bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste is decent with bitterness lingering. Body is medium, but kind of rough and carbonation is rich, offensivly rich.

D: This is nothing to write home about...
