Pours crystal clear, light gold with little or now effervescent but with a decent pure white head that quickly settles inot a thin skin possessing ongoing side glass lacing.

Aroma is mostly grassy with some faint malts.
Taste: About the same, this is a beer that would in a beer taste with Coor's Light and Miller Lite could eek out a victory, while not being largely distinguished from either in taste or in their style.

Thin mouth feel.
A thirst quenching beer but not much more going for it.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is metallic and grainy.
The taste is sweet corn, grain and a mild metallic bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
A Euro lager, fairly sweet.

Bright straw/pale golden color. White foamy 2 finger head lasting around 4 minutes. Strong legs and nice activity.

Faint aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, caramel with a hint of skunk. Well balanced pleasant taste with a crisp but sugary feel.

Almost medium body with some prickly carbonation. Good intensity bitter finish and slightly mouthcoating with a smoky skunky dry end.

Overall : A little faint but very fresh and enjoyable. More flavors and quality than the average macro.

He often credits me as the founder and creator of The CANQuest (TM), but so many of the exotic CANs on my list have come from the incomparable in-person, local trader, tone77 that he is inextricably a part of my success. Many, many thanks! This is just one example.

From the CAN: "By Appointment to the Royal Danish Court"; "Enjoyed Since 1880"; "Authentically Brewed on Pure Lager Malt."; "A Perfectly Balanced Mixture of Dry Richness, Liveliness, Sweetness and Hop Subtleness."; Deserve to Sit Back and Enjoy Responsibly."; "Timeless Quality".

Once more, a squarish tab led to a different Crack! than usual and the 50-ml CAN prevented anything more than a standard Glug to prevent overflow. The finger of foamy, bone-white head was short-lived and mourned in its passing. Color was golden (SRM = 4/5) with NE-plus quality clarity, allowing me to see through the walls and into the future. In the present, Croesus, Mammon and Midas all showed up for a taste and perhaps a takeaway CAN since it was "Pure Gold", after all. Nose had a lager-like honey sweetness and I breathed a sigh of relief. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was of biscuit malt and lightly grassy hops. Wow! I could really get behind this if I had to. Having tried some of the other Nepalese offerings, this would be the best of the lot. Finish was semi-dry and very satisfying. I might overlook it under other circumstances, but CANpared to what else tone77 dropped off, say no more ...

Yellow golden color with a thin head with low retention.
Light aroma of bread malt and a faint herbal hop, not much in here.
Flavor of malt sweetness, a bit of a toastdness, caramel, soap, pears soaked in liquor and minerals. Hints of herbal hops. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
No big defects with a relatively unique taste, but it doesn't really stand out.

Had this beer while on vacation in Nepal. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of malts. Taste is light, some malts, mild but refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but nothing special.

500ml can. I didn't realize that this was a different beer, just because Tuborg outsourced a portion of their brewing concerns to Turkey. But it was added here by the admin, so it must be so.

This beer pours a clear pale golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, somewhat caked off-white head, which renders a bit of drying soap scum lace around the glass as it quickly falls away.

It smells of gritty pale grainy, crackery malt, more than a hint of corn mash, biodiesel fumes, fleshy apple and pear drupe fruitiness, and grassy, earthy, and slightly skanky hops. The taste is semi-sweet grainy rice pudding, sodden white soup crackers, stale sour lemon, and some weedy, grassy hops. A fading touch of weirdly sweet gasohol meanders about.

The carbonation is fairly low, and weakly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, nothing really getting up this one's hackles. It finishes off-dry, and mildly pithy, the initial skunkiness only present in trace amounts.

Well, somewhat better than I was expecting, but still a wan and underwhelming pale lager. Take a nod from the central Europeans, lads, and investigate the wonderful world of hops, or something, sheesh.

Quickly settling head, white in colour. Clear pale yellow hue with lively effervescence, Nice lager-esque aroma, grassy malt and slight flowery hop nose. The carbonation leaves pinprick sensations on the tip of the tongue, flavours of crisp bittering hoppiness tasted first then a semi-dry maltiness with a grassy/slightly biscuity tone. Finishes with a hop bite. Easy drinking, a nice Lager with above average hoppiness. Nicely done.
