look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Pale yellow, white head, very clear with good carbonation, the smell is grass and bready, a hint of licorice.
The taste if somewhat flat and a little astringent, little to no aftertaste.
Feels thin and flat but it makes a great get-drunk beer, it definitely doesn't have enough character to stand alone and be drunk for the beer itself but it's great for having something to drink that doesn't demand your attention while hanging out with your buddies.

not a classic by any means, tuborg is still a pretty solid lager. i feel this is the sort of lager stock standard aussue beers should be looking at.

lovely light golden color, not pissweak like becks, with the standard white bubbly head. alas it doesnt stick around long enuff, fortunatley it doesnt matter too much overall. nice malty sort of smell with a very hoppy, tea like aroma, with some hints of straw. fairly firm in body for a lager, its got strong malty taste with a savory background, a little bit of corn, maybe potatoes? theres some back bitterness which is subdued for a lager. a fair element of sweetness in there also, but all quite nicely balanced. good amount of carbonation which adds some crispness to the body.

very solid session beer this. compared to the crap lagers i could be forcing myself to drink, its not hard to spend an extra buck or two for a half dozen of these. they will go down a whole lot beeter and be far more enjoyable.

As Euro-lagers go, this is one of the better ones. Rather unique vague floral/fruity notes, almost, but not quite, a distant echo of a Belgian pale. Some grassy and veggy notes detract. Hops bittering bats clean-up and the finish is astringent, but not mouth-puckering so. One of the few beers that is probably better canned than bottled.

This one came in a 12oz bottle. Poured a clean golden color with a small head that didn't stick around long. The aroma was a little sweet and malty, but not strong in any category. The flavor was slightly skunky but it was fairly dull overall. Nothing exciting here. I was able to drink this beer without much problem, but I don't see myself having it again.

The "beer of Danish Kings" eh? Not served in a glass horn, like the 1970s ads...

Clear darker yellow, nice head that laces in snowflake ring patterns, like the grade school cut outs. Strong hop aroma, but not juicy, a trace of sulfur. Flavor begins weakly malty, starts like light brown sugar but then the bottom falls out with subpar mouthfeel. Finishes with an indelicate vinegary quality that's enhanced by the super thin body. I can't give this ordinary drinkability like some Lagers, there's an unpleasant sharp tone to the finish of this brew that spoils the fun.

I have had this beer before in bottle, and let me say that on tap it is a lot better! It is a relatively boring lager with no special qualities but it went down a damn sight better than the Aussie lagers that were on tap beside it. Generic Euro-lager, but interesting to see on tap in a small town in Australia.

Came in a 6 pack, poured from a sargasso green 330 ml bottle that makes me pucker in anticipation of skunkiness. Pours out a clear straw colour, minimal head, slight ring. No skunk on the nose fortunately, but instead sweet malt, grass and metal. Sweet hay flavour with a strong metallic presence, somewhat coppery. Body is light, but not overly watery. Hmmmm, overall an average offering, and not one that I would be partaking of too soon, given the vast selection of more palatable average offerings out there. Where's my Big Rock Grasshopper?

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Pale yellow golden colour with a good clarity, lacing suffers a bit.

Smell: Grassy, cooked veggie, mild herbal hop and some faint sulphur.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Decent crispness in the watery palate, semi astringent grain flavour throughout. Hops add to the astringency, odd metallic flavour middle to end. Finishes astringent and dry.

Notes: Lets say it together one more time … “astringent”. Yet another boring Euro Lager, don’t bother with this one … it is not worth the $7 a six-pack.

Not much to rave about with this beer as it lacks character and it was dull and boring.It had a large white creamy head with fine-small bubbles.The body was carbonated and clear.The hue was yellow and there was not much lacing.The nose was somewhat metallic and the flavor was blah.The mouthfeel was smooth, watery, thin and light bodied.

a fine looking lager.
splattered white crust, candlelight gold liquid...
The smell is of cereal and water. Think corn flakes with tap water poured on top instead of milk.
The flavor is mild, exhibiting little herb or char, but rather a fairly intense soggy crust dynamic.
not particularly clean, richer than many cheapo lagers though.
this cheap should not be an option.

Faint mild malt scent and a pale yellow color. Light malt flavor comes through but this is rather tasteless. Medium bodied. Malty aroma with hay. Neutral taste, I guess. Very short light bitter finish. Hint of metal. Average, but drinkable. Thin swilling beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 500ml can. Clear golden pour. small head that fades fast. looks like apple juice almost.

Smell: the nose wasn't very distinct. Slightly sweet and malty but not much else is present.

Taste: Very bland and dull. Almost no hoppiness whatsoever. There are some grainy-sweet notes but that fades fast. Malty on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp. A bubbly and dry finish.

Drikablility: i'd have to be in the mood for a very light drinking beer.

Not a bad beer – I just expected more flavor and aroma. Very Bland.
Rating – This pale gold/blonde Dane simply does not have enough flavor, body or aroma, therefore it is a bit disappointing. A foamy white head lingers awhile then settles into a thin coating. The thin light roasted malt give very little in the way of flavor or body (sort of a Rice Crispies taste). The mild to medium metallic tasting hops are nothing to write home about. Think mild Heineken, with a dash a seltzer added. Sneaky kick.

Tuborg sold the trademark to Vena to produce this stuff for the Russian market. They ought to be ashamed. It pours pale yellow, with a white fizzy head that dissipates almost immediately. There's some decent malt in the nose, but the mouthfeel is flat, and the taste all too grainy. There's a mild hop finish, but the aftertaste is just bland, bland, bland. Vena's own product, Nevskoye, is a much better choice.

Pours a crystal clear golden body with a foamy head of bright-white foam. The head drops shortly but it maintains a consistent 1/16" surface covering and leaves some very nice lace as well. A combination of grainy malt and herbal hops make up the aroma which is pleasant and inviting. The body is medium/light and couples with a standard level carbonation to leave it gently crisp in the mouth. The flavor is that of almost any basic European lager. The malt and hops meld seamlessly, backed by a firm bitterness. It finishes dry with a lingering note of herbal hop flavor on the tongue. Well made and easy to drink, but lacking in enough character to want you to have more than one or two.

Pours a great clear gold color with a huge off-white head that recedes very quickly to become a lace engine. The constant upward flow of bubble streams keep the thin lace layer intact and this in turn constantly coats the glass with sticky white lace. Really very impressive look. Nose is just average and mostly of malt with some adjunct sense thrown in. The flavor starts well, being fairly flavorful, but weakens as the brew warms, letting the adjuncts come to the fore. Light body is not as watery as I'd expected. Stronger alcohol sense than expected. Finish is a bit astringent though dry.

I had this with pizza. Likely it would have been less enjoyable with no food for company. Better than most macros by a thin margin, except in appearance, which was a real strong point for this little lager from Denmark.

Sweetish, bland, boring, tastes the same as other beers from this brewer. Typical Danish lager. Relatively crisp, and without much flavour, some adjuncty flavours noticed, with some sweet malts, pretty boring brew that obviously didn't take much effort to brew.

This is very nice. Starting from its appearance which is a light golden offering with a thick white crown and abundance of glass cling to the taste of bitterness turning to a mild sweetness on the palate. The body is medium light and exceptional..I believe this to be my highest score to date!

Tuborg is a light-amber coloured beer, a nice colour for a lager, richer than most. The head is quite foamy with large bubbles and laces the glass quite well.
Smell is sweet, more malty than bitter - its not bad.

I think the taste is decent, a nice lager but a little more full bodied than some that I am used to drinking. Mouthfeel is ok too and drinkablity is very good. The beer is a little creamy which for me makes it less of a session beer.

This beer by far is one of my favourite lagers, next to Warsteiner. There is a slight hay smell, a bit skunked. Tuborg has an amzing mouth feel, creamy, smooth, medium bodied, just a pleasure to drink. There was a decent white head to begin with, then quickly dissapeared after a few mins. Compared to other lagers, Turborg has a much stronger taste, definatly in the ammount of hops used. From what i think, a very refreshing beer, at any time of the year. This is the one and only beer i actually prefer drinking from the bottle.

Clear golden color with a white thick head. The smell has a bit of a malt. The taste is rather pleasing and somewhat bitter at first with a bit of a harsh bite going down. The drinkability is about average with this type of beer. Overall, not a bad experiece but it did not stand out from the crowd.
